The Japanese Original Thread

Post by gnome »

Wherein we find out if various movies have a Japanese OriginalTM.

My first question: Three Amigos

Is there some old film where three Kabuki performers or something are mistaken for real Samurai and have to save a village?

Despite living in Japan, I'm afraid my knowledge of Japanese cinema doesn't run very deep.

I do know that some Kurosawa movies were based on Shakespeare plays, so in some cases there was an English Original to the Japanese Original.
