The Asahi reports that the film critic Mizuno Haruo (aka Mike Mizuno)  
died on the 10th. He was 76 years old. Mizuno was one of the most  
famous critics in Japan, having hosted the Wednesday Road Show on TV  
for 25 years, but as with many of the older critics, he started out  
in the business working in the publicity arm of a film company (he is  
credited with composing the Japanese titles of For a Few Dollars  
More). He also became the director of the Siberian Express series-- 
under the name Mike Mizuno--which had a small cult following.
