Description

The Samurai Trilogy, directed by HIROSHI INAGAKI (The Rickshaw Man) and starring the inimitable TOSHIRO MIFUNE (Seven Samurai), was one of Japan's most successful exports of the 1950s, a rousing, emotionally gripping tale of combat and self-discovery. Based on a novel that's often called Japan's Gone with the Wind, this sweeping saga fictionalizes the life of the legendary seventeenth-century swordsman (and writer and artist) Musashi Miyamoto, following him on his path from unruly youth to enlightened warrior. With these three films-1954's Oscar-winning Musashi Miyamoto, 1955's Duel at Ichijoji Temple, and 1956's Duel at Ganryu Island-Inagaki created a passionate epic that's equal parts tender love story and bloody action. SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES: New high-definition digital restorations of all three films, with uncompressed monaural soundtracks New interviews with translator and historian William Scott Wilson about the real-life Musashi Miyamoto, the inspiration for the hero of the films Trailers New English subtitle translations PLUS: A booklet featuring essays by film historian Stephen Prince and Wilson Click Images to Enlarge
