Good Morning, World

The legend Toshirô Mifune was born one hundred years ago today!  I've posted far less about this star in the heavens than I should've at this point seeing as how I'm a huge fan -- it seems I take to Twitter more often when it comes to him.
Anyway thankfully Nathaniel and friends at The Film Experience have picked up my slack and spent the past week celebrating the man's centennial with a heap of ongoing content -- click on over to TFE to revel in it. And by "it" I mean Mifune's breathtaking talent...

... and beauty. And then watch one of Mifune's films today. 
I might try Terence Young's 1971 western Red Sun with Mifune...

... acting opposite the unlikely bunch of Charles Bronson, Ursula Andress, and Alain Delon! Just cuz the whole thing's online right here and that makes it easy. Anybody seen it?
