    Known as Japans 'Gone with the Wind',
    the Samurai Trilogy stars the legendary Toshiro Mifune
    as the title character--a warrior searching
    for spiritual enlightenment in 17th-century Japan

    MUSHASHI MIYAMOTO ("SAMURAI I")
    In the opening episode (which won the 1955 Oscar for Best Foreign Film),
    'Musashi Miyamoto' picks up his sword for the first time.
    His dreams of military glory end in defeat,
    but he is saved by a loving woman and
    a cunning priest who guides him to samurai discipline.


    DUEL AT ICHIJOJI TEMPLE ("SAMURAI II")
    In the second and bloodiest installment of the trilogy,
    Miyamoto not only defeats a chain-and-sickle master,
    but prevails against eighty
    samurai disciples from the Yoshioka school.


    DUEL AT GANRYU ISLAND ("SAMURAI III")
    In the trilogy's final installment,
    Miyamoto has a tragic reunion with the women who love him,
    and battles for samurai supremacy
    in a climactic confrontation with his lifelong nemesis.



    I bought these at $27-$32 each.

    Since theyre at about $80-90 value, will trade for 3 titles or close to same value.
