THE SEARCHERS
1956, Warner Bros., 119 min, USA, Dir: John Ford

Through Wayne's character, Ford explores the contradictions and dark side of the American frontier.

THE HIDDEN FORTRESS
KAKUSHI-TORIDE NO SAN-AKUNIN
1958, Janus Films, 139 min, Japan, Dir: Akira Kurosawa

Director Akira Kurosawa’s first widescreen film is a matchless mix of drama, action and humor that helped inspire STAR WARS. Toshiro Mifune stars as a warrior shepherding a princess-in-disguise through war-torn feudal Japan with a pair of bumbling peasants in tow. “One of the greatest action-adventure films ever made.” - David Ehrenstein. In Japanese with English subtitles.
