Akitake Kôno in The Men Who Tread on the Tiger's Tail

The Men Who Tread on the Tiger's Tail

1945 NR

After escaping murder at the hands of his jealous brother, a young feudal lord (Hanshiro Iwai) escapes with the help of his six most trusted men. Together, the entourage crosses through the Kaga Province -- disguised as monks. The rubber-faced Kenichi Enomoto provides the comic relief as a troublemaking porter in master director Akira Kurosawa's early film, based on an ancient Japanese Noh play.
