There is a scene for which Kurosawa praised Kimura. Fleeing from his captors, Sanjuro crawls into the space beneath the floor. Focusing the camera for this sequence was extremely difficult. The camera had to follow Mifune's action from this side to over here. Then there was a wall here that got in the way, and the camera couldn't follow any further. The wall was blocking me. And the beginning part was also blocked on this side. I had to find a way around this problem. I noticed a double gangway overhead, for suspending lighting equipment. Since I couldn't do my job on the ground, and I had great pride in myself as a focus puller, I climbed up onto the gangway and dropped wires down like a puppeteer. If there'd only been one lens, I would've only needed a single wire, but since it was CinemaScope, I had to deal with multiple lenses. So I dropped one wire, holding it in this hand, with another wire in my mouth, and a wire for the master lens in this hand, and finally another one around my big toe. But I couldn't see Mifune's movement at all. So I climbed down and watched him during the test shot. They called, "Ready! Action!" and then Mifune started. I watched his actions closely, as if I had become Mifune. l memorized how he crawled and what turns he took. Then, for the actual take, I focused the lenses from memory. It worked perfectly. That was the only time Kurosawa praised me. Kurosawa later spoke of Kimura as the best focus puller in Japan.
