The basket function is probably there only so that you can save your favourites.

Maybe I am blind but I just can’t find where to purchase/download the picture I put in my shopping cart in the archives. Can anyone help me out?

deconstruct: CM stands for commercials, so 14. cm (?) (cm) is photos from his commercials.

Thanks, deconstruct! I didn’t know that.

Ryan: Out of curiosity, why do you consider Teruyo Nogami the only authority on anything personal to Kurosawa, and not say, Donald Richie?

I think the reason for this is that Nogami was probably Kurosawa’s closest aide, and she spent over 40 years working and living with Kurosawa, while Richie’s views and anecdotes are based on a handful of meetings that he had with the director over the years. Richie’s memory has also at times been shown to lack some sharpness, so it’s often difficult to trust everything that he writes.

Having said that, I do have an enormous amount of respect for Richie.

Having said that, I did read from several sources of information.
