High and Low

Everybody loves Akira Kurosawa’s samurai films; the New York State Writers Institute is giving us a chance to see one of the director’s non-samurai-film collaborations with star Toshiro Mifune.

In High and Low, which is based on an American crime novel by Ed McBain, Mifune plays an industrialist faced with a horrible dilemma. Kidnappers abduct his chauffeur’s son, thinking it his. Will he pay the ransom and save the boy, or refuse to pay and save his own fortune? Will he choose spiritual or financial ruin?

High and Low will be screened tomorrow (Friday, Nov. 17) at 7:30 PM at the University at Albany’s Page Hall (135 Western Ave., Albany) in a new 35mm print with improved subtitles. Admission is free. For more info, call 442-5620.
