The hidden fortress (Kurosawa, 1958) - TSPDT #650
A samurai general tries to protect his princess and the gold from rivaling clans.
Very action ladden but in my opinion not as strong as Yojimbo. As usual, the characters are very overdrawn in the beginning. The two peasants commit blunders over and over and there is no change in their perception of the world at the end. They provide constant comic relief, but this film seems a little more dated than the rest.
