Yojimbo is on tonight on TCM cable.  It is practically move for move as Fistful of Dollars, a must-see for Leone fans.

nevertheless, a great film, IMO, and i know this is controversial on this board, BETTER than Fistful of Dollars, largely because of Mifune's immense performance.

YOJIMBO (1960) is indeed stunning! But to my mind, the movie KUROSAWA made the following year, SANJURO (1961) is his all time masterpiece. If you watch the ending, it has a direct connection with LEONE'S ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST, as in, the slow time face-off it takes to reach the swordfight. MIFUNE, again puts in a terrific performance. 8)

The bit where you see Ushitora (the equivelant of Ramon) and his gang of thugs advancing towards Mifune is one of my favourite shots in all of cinema.

Also a very important element given to the spaghetti western by Yojimbo - the ridiculously misty street. Perfect for the hero to emerge from in the final scene.


It's class.

thanks cusser  ;) http://www.cwru.edu/artsci/engl/marling/hardboiled/Redharvest.html

it seems leone copied yojimbo but if you check the link cigar joe left it's possible to draw conclutions that kurosawa copied yojimbo from the above mentioned book which i;m here at my library looking for.
again many thanks.

i've never seen it and will have my VCR tape it.

It's virtually impossible for a movie to copy a book.  A book is words, a film is visual action combined with dialogue and usually music. Where an author can spend a page describing the color of a flower or the flowing of a river, the director must do it with a glance and move on to the gist of the story.

That being said,

Leone/Jolly lost the lawsuit with TOJO over copyright

FISTFUL has no credited screenwriter in the English language version

The music cues are in exactly the same spot.

What kind of battle were you expecting? It's not Robocop.

Why do you have to bring Robocop to this? (Even though it has a great ending) I was expecting something great between Unosuke and Sanjuro but Sanjuro just threw a knife at his wrist and he dies.I dont know i was just expecting something more.
