A real treat for fans of Toshiro Mifune ( 三船 敏郎,) his storied life (a long one considering his bad habits of being a smoker, heavy drinker and fast car lover: April 1, 1920 - December 24, 1997) from his boyhood years in China, WWII to becoming the super star of Japan, with rare photos and video footage of him, scenes from his iconic films, family and friends. Interesting accidental movie star!
