High and Low

Where to watch

From Akira Kurosawa, director of "Yojimbo" and "Sanjuro" comes a tense, taut film of a modern "perfect crime" with more excitement than even Hitchcock could create.

An executive of a shoe company becomes a victim of extortion when his chauffeur's son is kidnapped and held for ransom.
