48 HOURS was intended as a "remake/homage" to STRAY DOG. A number of films have lifted this idea (man or policeman who loses his gun and must get it back). I recently saw a preview for a new film with a similar premise but I can't remember what it was.

Kurosawa borrowed heavily from the West and the West borrowed right back.
