Tonight on TCM -- Japanese Classics

Here's tonight's TCM lineup -- The Burmese Harp; Rashomon; Seven Samurai; Kwaidan. All great! If you have never seen the two Kurosawa flicks, you really have to. "Samurai" may well be the greatest action flick ever made [remade in America as "The Magnificent Seven"] and "Rashomon" [remade in the US as "The Outrage"] is one of the essential flicks. Toshiro Mifune, one of the greatest actors in world history, is amazing in both.

So give yourself a real treat -- tune in to TCM tonight. I know I will.
