500 |a This film has been modified from the original version of Akira Kurosawa's debut film which opened in 1943, without consulting the director or the production staff. 1,845 feet of footage was cut in 1944, to comply with the government's wartime entertainment policies. As much as we'd like to show the original version, we are not able to locate the cut footage. Yet we strongly believe this modified version is worthy of rerelease.
