Today, Mie Hama gives speaking engagements on her various causes, does product endorsements and is still very well known in Japan.
My wife is Asian and and many similarities with Mia.
The movie has a closing scene with Allen lying on a couch while the Asian wife of a friend does a tame striptease; it got me thinking that Allen has his own Asian fever thing going on, capped off by marrying his Asian step daughter.
She was then signed by Toho Co.
There is a scene near the end of You Only Live Twice where she jumps into the life boat.
She then pursued her lifelong interests in environmental and government projects.
Hama Mie is such an underrated beauty.
