    We have a Facebook page, if anyone is interested in checking that out. It has very few followers, so we don’t update it much, but it’s there, hanging out! 
And if we get some more traffic over there we might start up again posting Kurosawa facts, videos, etc.

    Using fire trucks and giant hoses to make it rain on the “Rashomon” (1950) gate. Black ink was added to the water to ensure it would show up on camera.

    There were two fires at the studio during the production of “Rashomon,” but because the trucks were already on site and set up, fire fighters were able to stop the fires quickly, with minimal damage.

    Kurosawa hanging out in San Francsco, early 1980’s. Coincidentally, not far from where some of the city exteriors for “The Birds” were shot.
