Tiger Tanaka is gone

Any fan of the James Bond franchise will remember the character of Tiger Tanaka from "You Only Live Twice". The Register is reporting that Tetsuro Tamba, who played the part, is dead at 84 from heart failure.

Tiger Tanaka: You know what it is about you that fascinates them, don't you? It's the hair on your chest. Japanese men all have beautiful bare skin.
James Bond: Japanese proverb say, "Bird never make nest in bare tree."

They don't make movies like that any more.
