Akira Kurosawa directs this spirited period action-adventure in which two conniving peasants (Minoru Chiaki and Makatari Fujiwara) are tasked with smuggling a general (Toshirô Mifune), a princess (Misa Uehara) and the remains of her family's wealth through mountainous, hostile territory in feudal Japan. Recognized as an influence on director George Lucas's original Star Wars movie, this humorous epic samurai film has been newly restored.
