1951: The Japanese crime drama "Rashomon," starring Toshiro Mifune and directed by Akira Kurosawa, makes its U.S. debut. The movie, which depicts a crime through the widely differing accounts of four witnesses, introduced Kurosawa and the cinema of Japan to Western audiences and earned the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 1952.
