Directed by Akira Kurosawa
Produced by Akira Kurosawa, Tomoyuki Tanaka, Ryūzō Kikushima
Starring Toshirō Mifune, Eijirō Tōno, Tatsuya Nakadai
35mm. Approx. 110 min.

Wandering into a deserted village, scruffy and hungry ronin Mifune sees his chance to rake in the ryo as a yojimbo (bodyguard). And after checking out the sake merchant’s thugs squaring off against the silk merchant’s goon squad, twice as much, if he hires out to both sides. But there’s a final showdown with Tatsuya Nakadai’s pistol-waving, Elvislike Samurai killer.
