  • Toshiro Mifune walking into town and seeing a dog with a human hand in it's mouth in Yojimbo.

A short paragraph on why you like movies and why you want to write about them here on this blog and what you hope to accomplish by putting your thoughts down here:

I hope to maybe influence someone who hasn't a clue to who Toshiro Mifune is. We have a wonderful history of great films.

Instead of getting that "hot" new release. I would love it if someone checked out a Kurosawa film for the first time. I hope to maybe turn someone on to a gem like "yojimbo".

Or let them know that Christopher Lee made some great films way before "The Lord of the Rings trilogy".Or that a great part of the influence on the "Star Wars" films comes from Lucas's love of Kurosawa's films.

I would love to get the "newbie" interested in classic films from the masters. And I hope to discover gems from others!

Anything else you would like to include on this bio. sheet?:

I miss my days at the chess and water polo clubs...My days of laughter...
