"The Sword of Doom"
Directed by Kihachi Okamoto
One of the most thrilling
samurai epics of the 1960's. Tatsuya
Nakadai stars as a
bloodthirsty samurai who slices and chops his way from town to town,
unfettered by any sense of honor. The madman's keen skill is matched only
by that of a virtuous fencing teacher, played forcefully by Toshiro Mifune.
Japanese with English subtitles. Black and white.
