Akira Takarada: Miss Universe judge?!

Akira Takarada and Brett, about to enjoy some Bob's Big Boy in Tokyo!

I spent part of my Golden Week holiday with Mr. Takarada in Tokyo. We spent much of our time planning his trip to G-FEST. Interestingly, Mr. Takarada told me he judged the Miss Universe pageant in 1966. So I did some digging around and found the clip! Mr. Takarada is introduced at about the 5:55 mark.

This man has done it all!

  1. Very interesting Brett! Thank you for sharing this clip. You're right Mr. Takarada has done it all. I wonder if that was the first time he visited the United States?
