Thank you to Aaron for this additional information on Nagato Hiroyuki.

Since the message is named " Re: Nagato Hiroyuki filmography " and that
Aaron mentioned that he wants to "add" something, I am wondering whether
soemone has prevouisly posted the a.m. filmograhy.

If it is the case, I have not received this message. could someone re-sedn
this post. Thanks

I do want to add that Nagato is part of the "royal family" (I guess you
could call it) of Japanese cinema.  His grandfather was Makino Shozo, the
"father" of Japanese cinema; his mother Makino Tomoko (an actress); his
father Sawamura Kunitaro (an actor: he's the Tono-sama in Yamanaka's
_Tange Sazen Hyakuman Ryo no Tsubo_); his uncle on his mother's side
Makino Masahiro (the great director); his uncle on his father's side Kato
Daisuke (from so many Kurosawa films).  Nagato's wife is the prolific
actress Minamida Yoko.  The Makino family continues today, of course,
with the Makino in Okinawa who's given birth (figuratively) to Amuro,
Speed, Max and a bunch of other girl groups and singers.
