He wasn't the 'Japanese John Wayne' or the 'Asian Clint Eastwood', he was simply Toshirô Mifune, so great an actor, so magnetic a presence, so virile a charisma that he was incomparable in the world and the history of cinema.

From his handsome young leading-man debut to his Samurai streak and finally his veteran days, the eternal partner of Akira Kurosawa became a specialist in roles that showed the most ambiguous sides of humanity, facing ethical dilemmas through bravery, calculations, spirit or fear in contemporary life or ancient Japan.

In each role, he's brought an intensity and a versatility that enriched the screen and broadened the human experience, entertaining generations of movie lovers and making him one of the greatest actors who ever lived. His roles have included Rashômon (1950), Shichinin no samurai (1954), Yôjinbô (1961), Tsubaki Sanjûrô (1962) and Akahige (1965).

In homage to the Japanese legend, which of these pictures of Toshiro Mifune is your favorite?

ElM,

It's puzzling why this thread disappeared. Unfortunately, Get Satisfaction occasionally loses track of threads.

Yes it was, especially since there was no reason whatsoever, not even a repeated word that could make it look like a SPAM. I'm glad it works now.

Please consider adding  'Red Sun' from 1971 in which Toshiro Mifune was joined by Charles Bronson, Alain Delon and Ursula Andress

Not to sound too picky about the pics you pick, but you have to make sure the face will cover most of the space... I'm trying to find the right picture to upload from "Duel in the Pacific", he looks great with the beard.
