I made a day of it. I watched Sanjuro, Red Bearf, High and Low, and Seven Samurai. I couldn't stay up to watch Rashomon, Yojimbo or Throne of Blood. I had seen all of them before except for High and Low.
I just wish that some of the film stills could have been in color so I could see the color of the costumes. I have that same wish for a lot of John Ford movies as well. Would love to know the actual color of Clair Trevor's dress in Stagecoach for example. Yet, being in black & white with the contrasts of light & dark adds a lot to many of these films.
Amado mio, love me forever and let forever begin tonight.
Thanks, AF. I wonder how much interest there would be. Bushido was one of my fav rpgs back in the day. I like to play loner characters, or loner-and-sidekick, rather than adventuring parties, and that fits the Japanese heroic tradition.
