The elder brother of Katsu Shintaro, and perhaps the strongest swordsman in the history of Japanese films, Wakayama Tomisaburo is best known internationally for his definitive portrayal of Ogami Itto (Lone Wolf, Assassin With Child) in the Baby Cart film series. In addition, he also starred in many other films and TV series, always showing his amazing prowess with weaponry. Never using doubles for his stunts or swordplay, he has risked life and limb to create some of the most memorable moments in the world of the Samurai Film. No other film star could match his ‘Iaido’ (Quick Draw Sword technique), or his ability to spin spears and staffs as he cut down scores of foes. In his final years at Toei Films, Wakayama starred in 2 unique series, in the first he played Shinkai, the Wicked Priest, a wandering Buddhist Priest who engages in all things forbidden, including drinking, gambling, and fighting. In the other series he starred in at the time, KILLER’S MISSION, Wakayama played Shikoro Ichibei, a professional assassin with a wide array of weapons who answers only to the Shogun. Of even more interest, after the Lone Wolf series ended, three of the greatest names in Japanese film, Wakayama Tomisaburo, his brother Katsu Shintaro, and the noted director Gosha Hideo, collaborated to create THE SILENT SAMURAI a television series unlike anything before, featuring violence and swordplay that far surpassed any previously shown on the small screen.
