Japan, 1947
Directed by Senkichi Taniguchi
Starring Toshirō Mifune, Takashi Shimura
16mm print courtesy Japan Foundation. Approx. 85 min.

On the run from their under-the-credits bank job, initially creepy Takashi Shimura and intimidating 27-year old Mifune (top-billed in his first film); hole up in a remote Japanese mountain lodge with the aging, unsuspecting proprietor, his granddaughter, and a marooned mountaineer. Vertigo and frostbite-inducing winter location shooting in the Japanese Alps.
