Paleo-Cinema Podcast 57 - The Magnificent Samurai Beyond The Stars Times 7


While still in the depths of a Melbourne winter, I talk about three movies all with the same story. First off, Akira Kurosawa's 1954 action masterpiece Seven Samurai, then John Sturges' iteration, the 1960s western The Magnificent Seven and finally, the Roger Corman produced version, set in outer space, Battle Beyond The Stars.

Don't know if anyone's pointed it out, but the 80's post-apocalypse flick World Gone Wild is the 7 Samurai riff of that genre. It's an ok time waster that is worth checking out. Enjoy the podcast.

Now I'm going to have to check out World Gone Wild, too. At the moment I'm acquiring the anime Samurai 7 to complete my knowledge of 7 Samurai iterations. Thanks for the extra one, Eric.
