Red Sun

Red Sun is a 1971 Western directed by and starring Toshirō Mifune (a favorite at our house), Charles Bronson, Ursula Andress, and Alain Delon. Filmed in Spain, this is the story of a Japanese ambassador, who -while on a train to Washington to meet the President- is the victim of a hold-up on the train during which one of his samurai guards is killed and the presentation sword stolen. Fascinating! I loved this one.

Fistful of Pasta has a mixed review but praises the cinematography and says, "it's a lot better than most other east-meet-west westerns of the decade". concludes, "Great characters and a very engaging storyline makes this an enjoyable western".
