Personal Quote:

In my childhood, America was like a religion. Then, real-life Americans abruptly entered my life - in jeeps - and upset all my dreams. I found them very energetic, but also very deceptive. They were no longer the Americans of the West. They were soldiers like any others...materialists, possessive, keen on pleasures and earthly goods. See more »

Trivia:

Was sued by Japanese director Akira Kurosawa for remaking his Yojimbo (1961) as "A Fistful of Dollars" (Fistful of Dollars (1964)) shot-for-shot without crediting him, and copyright infringement. The production of Fistful of Dollars (1964) apologized, compensated Kurosawa with $100,000, and 15% of box office revenues. See more »
