Akemi Negishi passes away

Akemi NegishiThe Japanese actress Akemi Negishi died of cancer in Kawasaki on March 11 at the age of 73.

Negishi first came into international prominence through Josef von Strinberg’s 1953 Anathan, which was a co-production between Japan and Hollywood. She became known for her sensuous, even seductive acting, which was somewhat unusual for the 1950s and 60s Japan. Her credits with Kurosawa include four movies: Record of a Living Being, The Lower Depths, Dodesukaden and Red Beard.

Negishi was also known for her television and theatre work.

Indeed, you are probably right doggie. Thanks for pointing that out! I’ll need to be more careful where I nick my pictures from.

This seems to be the real deal.

That’s a sexy beautiful young lady. She might be gone from this world but spiritually She lives any way.



She was pretty hot in The Lower Depths. I like that part near the end where she does that mocking little dance thing. She was yummy as the town sex pot in Dodes’ka-den as well. Very cute lady and a good actress.
