The Samurai Trilogy, directed by Hiroshi Inagaki (The Rickshaw Man) and starring the inimitable Toshiro Mifune (Seven Samurai), was one of Japanís most successful exports of the 1950s, a rousing, emotionally gripping tale of combat and self-discovery. Based on a novel thatís often called Japanís Gone with the Wind, this sweeping saga fictionalizes the life of the legendary seventeenth-century swordsman (and writer and artist) Musashi Miyamoto, following him on his path from unruly youth to enlightened warrior. With these three filmsó1954ís Oscar-winning Musashi Miyamoto, 1955ís Duel at Ichijoji Temple, and 1956ís Duel at Ganryu IslandóInagaki created a passionate epic thatís equal parts tender love story and bloody action.
