If you are talking about American Civil War, the time in "Yojimbo" is roughly 200 years prior to that.

I thought Yojimbo took place in the 1800s, man I'm lost. How could that guy have a revolver if it took place in the 1600s?

Most of time (but not always) samurai movies are set in the period of Tokugawa shogunate that is from 1603 through 1867. Unless noted, times of samurai movies are set in sometime in 17th century or 18th century.

In case of "Yojimbo", the time is not really specified in the Japanese print although I'm aware that the time is more specific in the opening subtitle explanation in foreign prints. So, I made a rough guess without paying attention to that subtitle.

But I guess you are right. I just checked the official novelization of "Yojimbo". Although the original screenplay does not specify the time, the novelization says it's toward the end of Tokugawa shogunate. Around this time, there were many foreigners in Japan. It's quite possible that Unosuke got his scalf and gun from foreigners while he was out of town.

But semiautomatics? No. That's way too off.

I can't wait until I get the remastered editions. But I can't stand the cover design of the remastered "Yojimbo" DVD. What are they thinking?

Hey, I bought that Samurai Boxset.
$80 and I pretty much have to rebuy all of em except Hidden Fortress. Criterion really should consider discounts for their re-releases. Same thing happened to me with Brazil. But I don't think I can stuff in another view. I think I'm up to 10 on that film.

The Yojimbo transfer is ******, even for a bootleg it would be sub par. The Sanjuro is ok.

Also, I'm really glad I waited for Amarcord to get re-released. Best rumor I've ever listened to.

And by "bought" you mean borrowed from me, right? ;)

I didn't want to buy Kurosawa films from Criterion. Japanese DVDs have the best transfer. But they are so expensive that I was hesitant to buy them. Now, the rumor from Japan has it Criterion is gonna have the better transfer for "Yojimbo" and "Sanjuro" than the Japanese DVDs.  Sometimes patience pays off.

Late 1800's. Around 1890's I think. Anyway, the film had enough sword fights, this ain't Star Wars where everything has to be done with a saber. The ending to Yojimbo was very creative.

Imagine at the end of Fistful of Dollars that it was ended with Eastwood shooting the baddie. Acceptable, but not exactly creative.
