Nehemiah Persoff as a Japanese in a WILD WILD WEST episode

Postby ringfire211 » Sat Feb 25, 2017 4:23 pm

So I'm flipping through channels and stumble onto an episode of THE WILD WILD WEST (a show I really don't care for) and I see this Japanese dude and I'm scratching my head why does this guy sound like Nehemiah Persoff?? :? I take a closer look and what do you know... it IS Persoff!!! :lol: :shock: Complete with slanted eyes and everything. Let me tell you - Persoff playing Japanese has to be seen to be believed!! He makes Ricardo Montalban as Tokura look downright authentic. To top it off Persoff is playing some type of Hawaiian royalty so I really don't get this whole Japanese thing. But get this - his character's name is Barclay! :? How very Japanese or Hawaiian, eh? This show is just beyond bizarre!

The 1960s are a foreign country, they do things differently there." ;)

I remember that episode more for the fact that James West does not kiss or otherwise engage in an episode-long romance with the story's Asian female character, which to my knowledge, would never happen in any other episode of the series had said female been caucasian.
