Mifune is a favorite actor of mine. He did a lot of great movies beyond the Kurosawa films.

Mifune played the wandering Yojimbo in 2 more films
'Zatoichi meets Yojimbo' and 'Incident at Blood Pass' (Machibuse) there was going to be a 5th Yojimbo appearance in 'Goyokin' but Mifune walked off the set due to extreme weather and director problems.
Other favorites of mine are..
The Samurai Trilogy (Musashi Miyamoto)
Samurai Rebellion (Joiuchi) - Probably my favorite Mifune film
Japan's Longest Day - The true story of the last day of WWII
Life of a Swordsman - Mifune plays Cyrano de Bergerac
Samurai Pirate (The Great Bandit) - kind of a Sinbad move
