Teru Shimada

Postby Vega » August 27th, 2017, 1:02 pm

One of the few Japanese-American actors in films and television from the 1930s-1970s, Teru Shimada always tended to stand out in whatever he was in, one of his more notable roles being in the Bond movie You Only Live Twice. Does anyone have any special knowledge or thoughts about him?

Welcome, Vega! I think that several of our members (feaito, jackfavell, are you around?) might know more about this recognizable actor. I hope that they chime in with their extensive knowledge, but I thank you for becoming a member--and for posting here.
