Donald Richie, Forever Linked to Kurosawa, Dies

The great Donald Richie has passed away at the age of 88.  His many writings on Japanese film were a big part of my life during the 1980s--especially his books and articles on Kurosawa (who I interviewed more than 30 years ago).  Richie also wrote subtitles for a few of the master's films, such as Kagemusha.   In his memory, the original 1954 trailer for one of the ten greatest films ever, Seven Samurai.
