    Nope. You're thinking of THE GLASS KEY, not RED HARVEST. 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.
