Film stills don’t get much better than this. Mifune (L) and Seiji Miyaguchi (R) in “Seven Samurai” (1954).
After “Ikiru,” Kurosawa and his screenwriting team - Shinobu Hashimoto and Hideo Oguni - wanted to make a film exploring a day in the life of a samurai, but the idea was too vague. Looking over the enormous amount research material compiled, Kurosawa found a tidbit about a group of samurai who came together to protect a village from bandits.
The team sat down to explore the idea and ended up writing a 500 page script.
Dieter Rams, Radio T41, 1961-63. Record player P1, 1959. For Braun AG, Germany.
In the early 60s his role as head of design required international contacts, so Rams had to improve his English. This was an important motive to develop the portable record player, combined with the transistor radio T41. He could take it on trips and play the language courses that were offered on 45-single records at that time. Source
