FOLA offers double trouble with Clint Eastwood and Toshiro Mifune films

Saturday, April 14, 7 p.m.—LUDLOW—FOLA (Friends of Ludlow Auditorium) continues its showcase of Cinema Classics of the 1960s by presenting a double feature of Clint Eastwood in Sergio Leone’s “A Fistful of Dollars” and Toshiro Mifune in Akira Kurosawa’s “Yojimbo” on Saturday, April 14 at 7 p.m. at the Ludlow Town Hall Auditorium.

Although not directly referenced in the film credits, “A Fistful of Dollars” was inspired by and based on “Yojimbo.” Oddly enough, “Yojimbo” is based on the mystery writing of American Dashiell Hammett and the movies his writing inspired, like “The Glass Key” and “Red Harvest.”

Feel free to show up for only one of the movies, or stay for both. Given running times, “A Fistful of Dollars” will start at 7 p.m. and “Yojimbo” at 9 p.m.

The films are open to everyone and are free; donations are appreciated. Popcorn and water will be provided. For more information, call 802-228-7239 or visit fola.us.
