Description

Yojimbo is a 1961 jidaigeki 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 deadly newcomer as a bodyguard. Based on the success of Yojimbo, Kurosawa's Sanjuro was altered to feature a very similar lead character.
