Kurosawa? (sp?)

And the only movie I can think of without cheating is "The Seven Samurai" which became "The Magnificent Seven." Then there was that Macbeth-y movie...

Correct. The other one I was thinking of was Yojimbo which was remade into, most famously, A Fistful of Dollars. (It's been remade at least once more but the name of that film eludes me at the moment.)
