Here is a real gem ,and one that eluded the US occupation's destruction of Samurai films .

A classic from 1942 directed by Hiroshi Inagaki ,starring Chiezo Kataoka and Ryunosuke Tsukigata .

The Date Masamune The One Eyed Dragon story has been done many times over the years , the story covers Masamune's rise to top banana in the Date Family . Clever editing and striking black and white photography really enhance this, scenes of mounted Samurai charging have rarely looked so good .

Ichiban really came up with a goodie on this one ,i have a copy from a showing on the Jidai Geki Channel ,though the print was somewhat faded i always hoped this would be remastered ,now it has been and subtitled as well .
