Acknowledged as a primary influence on George Lucas’ Star Wars, The Hidden Fortress sheds light on the roots of Star Wars’ cinematic vocabulary. A grand-scale adventure that only venerated director Akira Kurosawa could create, the film stars the inimitable Toshiro Mifune as a general charged with guarding his defeated clan’s princess, as the two smuggle royal treasure across hostile territory accompanied by two bumbling, conniving peasants.
