Editorial Review

Koichi Nishi's (Toshiro Mifune) wedding to the boss's daughter is disrupted by the arrival of a wedding cake with an ominous message. In fact, the groom sent the cake himself. Nishi is on a mission to punish the company that forced his father's death.

The Akira Kurosawa film is in Japanese with English subtitles.

The "Kurosawa & Mifune: Together Again" series at the AFI looks at perhaps the greatest actor-director collaboration in film history.
