    Miyoshi Umeki, Oscar-winning actress, dies at 78
    By Stuart Lavietes

    Thursday, September 6, 2007


    Miyoshi Umeki, an expressive actress of innocent charm who in 1957 was the first Asian performer to win an Oscar, as best supporting actress in her first Hollywood film, "Sayonara," died on Aug. 28 in Licking, Missouri. She was 78.

    The cause was complications of cancer, said her son, Michael Hood.

    A versatile performer who also had major roles on Broadway and on television, Umeki played Katsumi in "Sayonara," a tragic drama, based on the novel by James Michener, about American servicemen who fall in love with women they meet while stationed in occupied Japan.

    In the film, which starred Marlon Brando, Umeki's character marries Airman Joe Kelly, played by Red Buttons, against the wishes of the military authorities and local citizens. When Kelly is transferred back to the United States and prevented from taking Katsumi with him, both characters commit suicide.

    Buttons also won the best supporting actor award for his performance in the film.

    Born on May 8, 1929, in Otaru, Hokkaido, Umeki began her career as a nightclub singer in Japan, billing herself as Nancy Umeki. After making a couple of records there, she attracted the attention of a talent scout, who persuaded her to move to New York City in 1955. Within a year, she had a recording contract and a regular spot on the television variety show "Arthur Godfrey and His Friends." It was her appearances on that show that led to her role in "Sayonara."

    Umeki turned to Broadway in December 1958 to star as a young Chinese immigrant in Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Flower Drum Song." She received a Tony nomination in 1959 for best actress and then reprised the role two years later in the film adaptation of the play. Umeki's other films were "Cry for Happy" (1961), "The Horizontal Lieutenant" (1962) and "A Girl Named Tamiko" (1963).

    On television, she was best known as Mrs. Livingston on the situation comedy "The Courtship of Eddie's Father," starring Bill Bixby, which ran from 1969 through 1972. She appeared as a guest in numerous other series in the 1960s, including "The Donna Reed Show," "Dr. Kildare," "Rawhide" and "Mister Ed."

    In addition to her son, who lives in Licking, Missouri, she is survived by two grandchildren. Her husband, Randall Hood, died in 1976. Her first marriage ended in divorce.

    She retired from show business in 1972 when "The Courtship of Eddie's Father" finished its run. Her son said she lived for a time in Hawaii but moved to Missouri about four years ago.

    Her son said she had never liked talking about her career, which she left because she wanted to live as a wife and mother.

    OMG I never knew that Mrs. Livingston was the same actress who sang "I Enjoy Being A Girl" in Flower Drum Song.

    Just like I just recently found out that the Banks' first nanny in Mary Poppins was the bride in the Bride of Frankenstien.

    And the twins on the Suite Life Of Zack and Cody are the same kids who played the kid in Big Daddy.

    Re: Sick day t.v. shows

    Some of these were on after school too. (and I'm SO GLAD I grew up
    when they had a lot of family type sit coms on instead of all the
    court crap and the Springer swill that pollutes afternoon tv now.)

    I became a big Price is right and Match game fan when they premiered
    in '72. Of course Gilligan's Island was among the best, I like Petticoat
    Junction too (more than Beverly Hillbillies, Green Acres was good.

    Brady Bunch! LOVED that show, and the Partridge family was good, too.
    for a little while I watched Dark Shadows. OH, F-TROOP!!!!! So happy
    it's on dvd now! Star Trek was on too.

    I remember watching Hazel, oh, barely remember watching some of the
    old George Burns and Gracie Allen Show! And Dennis the Menace!
    (with the real actors)

    Yeah, I like Courtship of Eddies Father (love the opening song ) (Sorry
    to hear "Mr Eddies Father" just passed)

    Get Smart was a show I liked (i think the opening and closing
    of the show intriguided me as real young single digiter)

    I liked Nanny and the Professor, too. And the Doris Day show,
    Flying Nun, That Girl, Dick Van Dyke (both version of the show)

    they did finally start re-runs of My Favorite Martian when I was
    in college (i had never seen it before then)

    Oh yeah the good ol' 70's talk shows with Dinah Shore, Mike Douglas,
    Merv. Of course if I was up late at night while sick, I would watch
    Johnny Carson and Tom Snyder. Oh, can't forget the comedy
    stylings of Julia Childs on her PBS cooking show!

    Yes, I Loved Lucy, too! Although when I was in elementary school,
    "I love lucy" wasn't televised on my 4 local tv stations in Fargo ND.
    They broadcast "The Lucy Show" the black and white episodes, where
    she was a single mom ~ some of the episode had Vivian Vance.

    When I was 12 years old, of all the women on TV to have a mad crush on at that time - Pat Crowley.

    And most all of my favorites hsve been covered here.
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    OMG that Love American Style had 1/2 the cast of Happy Days!!

    I always wanted to be That Girl too <tee hee>

    I remember watching the intro to the following but lost interest in it because it took place in a school. And I was sick, so the last thing I wanted was a reminder of school.
