SEVEN SAMURAI
Akira Kurosawa

Japan • 1954 • 207 minutes • Black and White • 1.33:1 • Japanese

This three-hour ride—featuring legendary actors Toshiro Mifune and Takashi Shimura—seamlessly weaves philosophy and entertainment, delicate human emotions and relentless action into a rich, evocative, and unforgettable tale of courage and hope.

I always thought it interesting that Toho wanted the restoration demo pulled from the first edition.

Has anyone got the demo to work on the later first editions.

Here is the problem. The disc is copy protected. The demo restoration is supposed to be <drive>\VIDEO_TS\VTS_02_1.VOB. When you try to play individual VOB files when they are CPd they are scrambled (on VLC) as well as certain players will not play them (like PowerDVD).

Since some people have stated that they can play this VOB quite easily (like how the W.C. Fields Short Films plays easily), but I cannot. It makes me think that there were several versions of the first edition besides the restoration demo edition. I know you can use something like DeCSS to get past the copy protection, but I don't want to restort to that :D.

Or you could use AnyDVD and DVD Shrink so that you can rip the demo and never have to search for it again. Just a thought.

I believe it made the Japanese film industry look bad because they didn't take good care of their films.

I'll look into those programs later today; though I think you were missing my point. I was asking if anyone has a first edition that does not have the restoration demo from the menu can access that file (meaning that the DVD was not CPd). Hence the "It makes me think that there were several versions of the first edition besides the restoration demo edition."

I believe it made the Japanese film industry look bad because they didn't take good care of their films.


This is what I have heard (read) too. Is there any definitive link on this?

Sorry I came to this so late.

Yes, I can say that I had the old Seven Samurai disc that DID NOT allow access to the restoration via the menu. I was able to access it by double clicking the file while exploring the disc on a Windows XP machine. As I recall the demo played simply using Windows Media Player. The same exact thing worked for me with the Asian film trailers on W.C Fields. (Boy, talk about a bizarre trick that you can do with DVDs....)

Sorry I came to this so late.

Yes, I can say that I had the old Seven Samurai disc that DID NOT allow access to the restoration via the menu. I was able to access it by double clicking the file while exploring the disc on a Windows XP machine. As I recall the demo played simply using Windows Media Player. The same exact thing worked for me with the Asian film trailers on W.C Fields. (Boy, talk about a bizarre trick that you can do with DVDs....)


May you take a scan/pic of the back of your copy? Do you have the CP graphic (copy protected)?

I can get to it maybe this weekend, maybe not until next weekend. I keep the OOPs that have new editions in a vault away from my house.

I can tell you that I bought it in the 4 samurai classics set while it was still in print. The other Yojimbo and Sanjuro are also in the vault but I can tell you that The Hidden Fortress does have the CP graphic.

Well, I now have Major81's copy of Seven Samurai. There is no copy protection noted on the back of the disc, but I can only get the sound to play on the restoration file, no video. I have a Mac and tried the VLC player. Any other free players I should try?

I completely forgot to post on this. I definitely was able to see this with my old computer as mentioned above -using Windows Media player with XP. When Master asked about the CP I retrieved the disc and tried it agian, but with my new computer. My current machine, with -ugh- Vista, flagged the disc as Copy Protected and wouldn't let me play the file. Sorry, with the trade negotiations, I completely forgot I had actually gotten out this disc for this purpose. At least I traded to another forum member who can continue the discussion that I forgot I was having.

I completely forgot to post on this. I definitely was able to see this with my old computer as mentioned above -using Windows Media player with XP. When Master asked about the CP I retrieved the disc and tried it agian, but with my new computer. My current machine, with -ugh- Vista, flagged the disc as Copy Protected and wouldn't let me play the file. Sorry, with the trade negotiations, I completely forgot I had actually gotten out this disc for this purpose. At least I traded to another forum member who can continue the discussion that I forgot I was having.



Yea, I could hear the sound, just no video. I do have Windows Media Player on my Mac (the OSX version) and it wouldn't load it. I will have to give it a try on my wife's Windows XP based PC.

I have an odd question. I now also have the recalled first pressing version of Seven Samurai. Does anyone know the date that Criterion made the recall announcement? I have a record of all the dates that Criterion's went out of print except for this first pressing and the four samurai films box set.

And there was me getting all excited that Tholly had posted something about a film rather than a DVD. Oh well, you live and learn. ;)

Very well. I'll comment on the film Seven Samurai. My opinion mirrors a lot of other opinions I have read. While the film is fantastic....there's no arguing that, it is not the be all and end all of films. At times, it seems very drawn out and slowly paced. Obviously, we all know it is 207 minutes long. Probably could have cut out at least 40-50 of that and improved the overall pacing of the film. Now, I have no problem with long films....I though Phantom India and Berlin Alexanderplatz were perfect at their lengths. My only problem with long films is when they are long for what appears like the sake of being long. But, I do appreciate why this film is in the collection....it rightfully deserves to have that special "C" on it.

Very well. I'll comment on the film Seven Samurai. My opinion mirrors a lot of other opinions I have read. While the film is fantastic....there's no arguing that, it is not the be all and end all of films. At times, it seems very drawn out and slowly paced. Obviously, we all know it is 207 minutes long. Probably could have cut out at least 40-50 of that and improved the overall pacing of the film. Now, I have no problem with long films....I though Phantom India and Berlin Alexanderplatz were perfect at their lengths. My only problem with long films is when they are long for what appears like the sake of being long. But, I do appreciate why this film is in the collection....it rightfully deserves to have that special "C" on it.


First there is no one film that is and "be all and end all of films." You are going to have to be specific about what you think should be edited out. Funny that most of the opinions that I have read on the film really do not go over the length of it. What critics discuss the length as a negative? As an aside I am thinking you probably will not like Bela Tarr.

I am probably biased since I've seen the film at least four times and it was the second Kurosawa film I saw. But the film has kept me interested every time I have gone over it. I am not alone as it is normally ranks high on critics/directors lists but also has a populist following (currently 13 in IMDB top 250) as well.

First time I've heard this argument! What could possibly have been cut?
