(out of 5)


Since Akira Kurosawa was inspired by American westerns to write and direct Yojimbo, it’s no surprise that this English-language remake of it fits the genre so well.    stars in the role originated by Toshiro Mifune as the Man With No Name, a lonesome plains drifter who enters a dusty Western town and finds that it is divided between two bickering families. He sees the opportunity to strike it rich when he decides to play both sides against each other, a trick that ends up in full-out war and him in the middle. Ennio Morricone’s marvelous musical score is the stuff that all spaghetti westerns would henceforth try to live up to.
