    "RED HARVEST was inspiration for one of Kirasawa's films (the title escapes, but it might have been RAN), and by extension, of A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS. A more direct screen adaptation of RED HARVEST would be LAST MAN STANDING, starring Bruce Willis."

    Actually, the credits of Last Man Standing claim it's a remake of Yojimbo, crediting the story to Kurosawa and his cowriter and the screenplay and direction to Walter Hill.
