Yojimbo -  Akira Kurosawa Japanese Cinema Masterpiece - Graphic Art Movie Poster

Yojimbo is a 1961 Japanese samurai film directed by Akira Kurosawa. It tells the story of a rōnin, portrayed by Toshiro Mifune, who arrives in a small town where competing crime lords vie for supremacy. The two bosses each try to hire the newcomer as a bodyguard.

Based on the success of Yojimbo, Kurosawa's next film, Sanjuro (1962), was altered to incorporate the lead character of this film.In both films, the character wears a rather dilapidated dark kimono bearing the same family mon.

It has been noted that the overall plot of Yojimbo is closer to that of another Hammett novel, Red Harvest (1929).Kurosawa scholar David Desser, and film critic Manny Farber claim that Red Harvest was the inspiration for the film; however, Donald Richie and other scholars believe the similarities are coincidental.
