Head East and celebrate the early efforts of the iconic, Academy Award-winning Japanese director with the films that launched his career in the 4-disc collection "The First Films of Akira Kirosawa." His debut effort "Sanshiro Sugata (Sugata Sanshiro)" (1943) explores the battle between judo and jujitsu and protégé and master in late 1880s Japan, and the set also includes his 1945 sequel to the popular film, pitting the hero in a fight against Westerners and placing him as the target of a vengeance mission. "The Most Beautiful" (1944) transcends its propaganda origins and peeks behind the curtain of a group of female factory workers during WWII. And "The Men Who Tread on the Tiger's Tail" (1945) follows a group of 12th century samurai who disguise themselves as monks to cross over enemy territory.
