Directed by Akira Kurosawa
Starring Toshirō Mifune, Takashi Shimura, Reizaburo Yamamoto
35mm. Approx. 98 min.
Mifune’s greasily-coiffed “Jungle Boogie”-dancing gangster gets the bad news from alcoholic doctor Takashi Shimura — he’s got TB; and then the prewar boss returns. First collaboration of “the greatest actor-director team in film history” (David Shipman).
