He ran away form real bows and arrows, and his sword was unbelievably dull.

Yeah, that was a fun little bit of trivia to find for that movie. There's no way in hell you could pull this shit nowadays.

Japanese filmmakers did not give a single fuck until relatively recently. They threw dozens of cats to their deaths and got dozens of dogs mauled by real bears while making Otis and Milo.

He wore armour. So long as they didn't hit him the face he'd have been fine

Someone didn't listen to the commentary track, or is trying too hard to be edgy. Idiot.

They used armor and they had blocks of wood. Thing is, that didn't always work! There was one scene where Mifune stabs a drunk (drugged) guard in Throne of Blood. The guard had a block of wood under his armor. Well, Mifune was so strong and badass that he actually pierced through the armor AND the block of wood AND injured the actor.

This is a real thing that really happened during the filming of Throne of Blood.

So yes, Mifune did have armor and blocks of wood and he had professional archers shooting at him who were aiming to miss him or hit him in those blocks of wood. BUT!!! At any time, something could have gone wrong. He could have been seriously injured or killed. When speaking about this later, people asked Mifune how he was able to so effectively portray sheer terror. He told them he wasn't acting. He was genuinely terrified that he could die.

Maybe he wasn't that great an actor. Japanese directors just need to try to murder their stars for real more to get a good performance out of them. :lol:

I don't think Kurosawa had to try and murder him when he played a somewhat crazy weirdo in Rashomon and Seven Samurai.

Which is only natural in this situation. Dude was one archery fuckup away from doing a Brandon Lee, years before that guy was even born.

Damn. That sucks. I was still thinking about it even though it was in SD.
