Not Rated | | Adventure, Drama
A poor village under attack by bandits recruits seven unemployed samurai to help them defend themselves.
Not only was this Toshirô Mifune's favorite of his own films, but he named Kikuchiyo as his favorite role, because he was able to "be himself."
We'll take this place next.
Bandit Chief: We took it last autumn. They haven't got anything worth taking yet. Let's wait.
When the samurai are giving battle advice to the peasants, who sit around them forming a circle, the camera does a rather wide circle shot of them. You can see the dolly track behind the seated peasants.
