One of the 1st Asian actors to appear on TV, his career in films and TV lasted over 50 years. I know him best as Vice Admiral Chuichi Nagumo in the all-star "Midway" from 1976, but his ability as an actor is best proved by the fact that if you needed an Asian actor to play an Asian character on TV, then you went and got Mr. Shigeta. R.I.P. James. You will be missed.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
