" The Seven Samuari"

I can't tell you who made this, but it's very authentic and made in Japan by famous japanese actors and martial artists. I'll also put it another way: It was made in black and white over 30 years ago, its in japanese with subtitles.... and it still retails for over $40 bucks. It's a CLASSIC!
Hi John

Seven Samurai is creditted to Akira Kurosawa; written by Akira Kurosawa, Shinobu Hashimoto, and Hideo Oguni; directed by Akira Kurosawa; and Prudiced by Sojiro Motoki. The film was made 50 years ago, it's half century this year!!!

The lead was played by Toshiro Mifune. Incidentally, he is the subject of one of Steven Seagals wild claims:

During this time, Seagal occasionally choreographed fight scenes in movies and coached such stars as Sean Connery and Toshiro Mifune.
