The screenwriter Leonard Schrader, who passed away in late 2006, wrote screenplays in both Japanese and English; his love for and immersion in the culture of Japan resulted in Mishima, an audacious and ravishing film, co-written with and directed by his brother Paul. A year later, Schrader’s powerful adaptation of Manuel Puig’s Kiss of the Spider Woman earned him, director Hector Babenco, and producer David Weisman Oscar nominations. In addition to teaching and writing, Schrader was a passionate collector of vintage lobby cards, leaving behind a personal collection of over 8,000 original cards, many from rare silent films. –
