The final Yojimbo film, 'Incident at Blood Pass' came about as two of Japan's greatest stars collide when Mifune Toshiro (Seven Samurai, Yojimbo) buts heads with Katsu Shintaro (Zatoichi). The film's Japanese title, MACHIBUSE, means ambush, and that is indeed what waits for Mifune's wandering samurai after he is hired for a mysterious mission. In fact, he is not even given any information about the mission, but only told to be at an old tea house at the top of a pass at a certain time. There, he butts heads with Katsu, a gang of bandits, and a convoy of Shogunate gold as two of Japan's finest film actors and a rousing score make this one of the most entertaining samurai films of the 1970s.
