Starring Toshiro Mifune, Tatsuya Nakadai,  Yoko Tsukasa

A nonchalant drifter arrives in a town beset by rival gangs. Without a name or any explicit motive, the drifter feigns support for both sides while secretly playing them against each other. Wildly entertaining, funny, cool, this film, with its anachronistic soundtrack, was the source of inspiration for Sergio Leone and Clint Eastwood’s A Fistful of Dollars (1964).
