Tattered Cover Classic: The Hidden Fortress
August 6, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Hosted by Howie Movshovitz
Presented by Tattered Cover Bookstore and KUNC Radio
Tickets are $1.00.
A grand-scale adventure as only Akira Kurosawa could make one, The Hidden Fortress stars the inimitable Toshiro Mifune as a general charged with guarding his defeated clan’s princess (a fierce Misa Uehara) as the two smuggle royal treasure across hostile territory. Accompanying them are a pair of bumbling, conniving peasants who may or may not be their friends. This rip-roaring ride is among the director’s most beloved films and was a primary influence on George Lucas’s Star Wars. The Hidden Fortress delivers Kurosawa’s trademark deft blend of wry humor, breathtaking action, and compassionate humanity.
