"The film which starts and ends with suicide, is deeply pessimistic, insisting that life in feudal Japan was hellish and short for those at the foot of the social ladder. The story develops in the Tokugawa era of the 18th century, in a poor district of Tokyo, where impoverished samurai live from hand to mouth among equally poor people of lower soaicl classes."--Back of container

Collection of three films directed by Sadao Yamanaka. In 'Tange Sazen: The Million Ryô Pot' (1935), oblivious to the true value of the family heirloom he has inherited, the leader of the Yagyu clan gives an old pot to his younger brother Genzaburo (Kunitaro Sawamura). Also ignorant of its worth, Genzaburo orders his wife sell it to a local junk dealer and the pot ends up in the hands of a young boy who is being cared for by the one-eyed and one-armed samurai Tange Sazen (Denjirô Ôkôchi). When Genzaburo finds out that the pot holds a map to a huge fortune, he sets off on a mission to reclaim it, but his laziness and gambling proves too powerful a distraction. In 'Kôchiyama Sôshun' (1936), when a priceless knife is stolen from a samurai, it sparks a chain of events leading to a lot of bloodshed and misunderstanding as the knife is tracked down by its rightful owner
