Pavel Juráček (Czech: [ˈpavɛl ˈjuraːtʃɛk]; 2 August 1935, Příbram, Czechoslovakia – 20 May 1989, Prague) was a Czech screenwriter and film director who studied at FAMU. Although not as famous as Miloš Forman or Jiří Menzel, he was an exponent of the Czech New Wave as well. He worked at Prague Barrandov Studios; however after his satirical movie Case for a Rookie Hangman (1970) was shelved, his movie career came to an end.
