Nagato Hiroyuki's filmography exactly as it appears in volume two of 
The Asian Film Library Reference to Japanese Film 1998.  The index 
indicates his date of birth as 1934.  All but three of the titles are 
cross-referenced in volume one: which gives kanji, romaji with long 
vowels indicated, length in minutes, cast & staff info, etc.

Admittedly, far from comprehensive, partly because the work is 
restricted to titles with an official English title in this edition of 
the work and partly because he's so damn prolific in small roles.  
Last year he also acted in OL Chushingura and Naniwa Chushingura.  For 
the record, he was born Kato Akio in Kyoto on 10 January 1934.

For a comprehensive filmography, wait for the next major revision in 
200x.  But as long as I'm not overwhelmed with requests, I can prepare 
more extensive filmographies for KineJapan subscribers who have 
purchased the book and need background on a specific person for their 
academic work.
