quote: The lead was played by Toshiro Mifune. Incidentally, he is the subject of one of Steven Seagals wild claims:
quote: During this time, Seagal occasionally choreographed fight scenes in movies and coached such stars as Sean Connery and Toshiro Mifune.
I'd like to point out that this is not such a wild claim .... there was a movie a while back called The Challenge (also distributed as Sword of the Ninja) staring Scott Glen and Toshiro Mifune which Steven Seagal did indeed choreograph the fight scenes and served as technical advisor.
Agreed, he did some fight choreography before he went to Hollywood. So it is not really a wild claim. Some are pretty wild but this one is true.
