An oriignal 1980 Australian day bill for the movie Kagemusha - The Shadow Warrior, a film by Akira Kurosawa. It is set in the Sengoku period of Japanese history and tells the story of a lower-class criminal who is taught to impersonate a dying daimyo to dissuade opposing lords from attacking the newly vulnerable clan. The film ends with the climactic 1575 Battle of Nagashino, which apprently used 5000 extras for a scene cut down to 90secs.

George Lucas and Francis Ford Coppola are credited at the end of the film as executive producers in the international version. This is because they persuaded 20th Century Fox to make up a shortfall in the film's budget when the original producers, Toho Studios, could not afford to complete the film. In return, 20th Century Fox received the international distribution rights to the film.
