12/25/13: We hope everyone had a great Christmas. We spent a quiet day at home, watching our favorite Christmas movie, Die Hard. I couldn't tell you how many times we've seen this, but it never gets old, and it's a favorite around here on the holidays.
     The picture here is from an episode of Burke's Law, a TV series from the early 60s, that we watched this week. The show was known for the large number of guest stars that appeared each week, some we recognize because of later shows they were on, such as a very young Barbara Eden in this episode. The scene here was fairly early in the show, when Capt. Burke goes into a Chinese restaurant looking for a woman and wanders into a back room where a dancer is entertaining the guests. The other guy in the picture approaches him and they trade proverbs before getting down to business. I didn't recognize the guy, but when he spoke, I got the impression that I should. So I did what I've unfortunately been doing a lot of lately. I reached for my phone and looked up the episode on IMDB. I hate the layout of their Android app, but I keep using it because of all the information they have.
     It turns out that I should have recognized him. The actor's name is James Shigeta, and while the name didn't mean much, his other credits did. He played Joseph Takagi in the original Die Hard, 24 years later! It turns out that he was a pretty popular actor around the time of this show. To quote John McClane, "Who knew?"
