Double Feature: THE SEARCHERS, 1956, Warner Bros., 119 min. Dir. John Ford. John Wayne gives the performance of his career as Ethan Edwards, a deeply troubled Civil War veteran who heads off in search of his kidnapped niece (Natalie Wood) and becomes more obsessive and irrational as his journey progresses. Through Wayne's character, Ford explores the contradictions and dark side of the American frontier. THE HIDDEN FORTRESS (KAKUSHI-TORIDE NO SAN-AKUNIN), 1958, Janus Films, 139 min. Dir. Akira Kurosawa. Director Akira Kurosawa’s first widescreen film is a matchless mix of drama, action and humor that helped inspire STAR WARS. Toshiro Mifune stars as a warrior shepherding a princess-in-disguise through war-torn feudal Japan with a pair of bumbling peasants in tow. “One of the greatest action-adventure films ever made.” - David Ehrenstein. In Japanese with English subtitles.
