I watched The Seven Samurai, in which Toshiro Mifune can do nothing without raising a smile. His character cradles a child whose mother has just been killed by bandits, and Mifune lugubriously exclaims something like, "I used to be this child!"

My favourite Kurosawa film is probably still Ikiru, yet Samurai has aged about as well as any film you'll see in the historical genre.
