A general and a princess must dodge enemy clans while smuggling the royal treasure out of hostile territory with two bumbling, conniving peasants at their sides; it? a spirited adventure that only Akira Kurosawa could create. Acknowledged as a primary influence on George Lucas? Star Wars, The Hidden Fortress delivers Kurosawa? inimitably deft blend of wry humor, breathtaking action and humanist compassion on an epic scale. The Criterion Collection is proud to present this landmark motion picture in a stunning, newly restored Tohoscope edition.
