Later to be remade as A Fistful Of Dollars, Yojimbo is the story of the lone samurai who appears one day in a feuding gamblers town as a mercenary for sale. Clint Eastwood`s man with no name was never as magnificent as the great Toshiro Mifune, who here brings an ironic humour to a film which many critics consider to be one of the best action/adventure movies ever made.
The style and setting of the film owe much to Kurasowa`s admiration for the widescreen epis westerns of John Ford, and the soundtrack by Masaru Sato is more than equal to Morricone`s later score.
Digitally mastered from a new print, this DVD release features a full-length commentary option by film historian Philip Kemp, plus on-screen biographies of Kurasaswa and Mifune.
