Good Times
28 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It would be great if this could come out it a "loaded" DVD, like some of the Russian fantasy films, with the original track and the Western Dub. Anyway, I saw it a few years back, it was a lot of fun. There is still a LOT of great Japanese movies unavailable in the West; let's hope the DVD era just keeps them coming. Anything Mufine did is of at least historic interest. It's great to see more of the two female leads from

"You Only Live Twice." I wonder if Kurosowa went to see this. Wakabyashi

had been up for the lead in "The Hidden Fortress."
