After a day’s filming, a group of those involved in the film’s production went for a gallop.
They split into threes, with a samurai leading each grouping.
The seven samurai were:
BRONSON, BRYNNER, BUCHHOLZ, COBURN, DEXTER, MCQUEEN and VAUGHN
The others involved in the gallop were:
ALANIZ, ALONZO, AVERY, BISSELL, BRAVO, DE HOYOS, HERN,
LUCERO, NAVARRO, RUSKIN, RUSSELL, SUAREZ, VACIO and WALLACH
For each grouping, any two names from the three had exactly 2 letters in common (eg, BRYNNER and BRAVO have B and R in common).
If I told you who accompanied BRONSON, you should be able to tell me who accompanied (a) MCQUEEN and (b) DEXTER
