Trailers to Akira Kurosawa’s Movies

Trailers are an art form in itself. In Kurosawa’s case they also offer us a further insight into the mind of the director, as it was typically he who edited together the trailers that were used to promote his films (in Japan, that is). For your viewing pleasure, here is a collection of trailers that I have been able to find across the Internet’s many online video services.
