I read it also twice. And Titoli is right.

It is only the basic idea. But that is an idea an artist can get by himself. But if Kurosawa has read the Hammet novel he surely got the inspiration for Yojimbo from there. Or at least one of the inspirations.

But read this:

I'd read the book, it's good... but it has not much to do with any of the films. And Last Man Standing bored me to death.

I prefer FOD, maybe because I saw it first. I thought Yojimbo was a pretty good movie but for me it took a while to get going, I also think its sequel, Sanjuro is the better movie. In terms of ratings:
- A Fistful Of Dollars = 5/5 stars
- Yojimbo = 3/5 stars

This is my rating system,
0/5 = Hated It
1/5 = Didn't Really Like It
2/5 = Meh, It Was Alright
3/5 = Liked It
4/5 = Really Liked It
5/5 = Loved It

What had always having me wondering was why Leone should go to see Yojimbo in the July 1963.  Yes, the air-conditioning might have been a factor, still I wonder. Now, I've just read a review of Kurosawa's movie made at the time by a writer who, sadly, passed away before Fistful was released. In his review he  explicitly mentions western and John Ford. So, maybe Leone went to see the movie because of the air-conditioning or because of Kurosawa. But the idea of making a western out of it was not so original. And I'd bet he read the review in question.

Clint also said that he had already seen Yojimbo, so he knew that FOD was a Yojimbo re-do.

That is proven by the fact that he does that homage to Mifune after he corrects his coffin order. He never said though that he had thought at the time  that the jap movie could be turned into a western. Or at least I don't remember he said it.
