August Actor's Spotlight: Linda Darnell & Takeshi Kaneshiro

Each month, Scarecrow highlights the work of two actors and put some of their best films together in a special rental section. Here are our picks for August:


Ms. Darnell began her career as a model before moving on to the theater and finally arriving in Hollywood. She's appeared in such films as THE MARK OF ZORRO (1940), BRIGHAM YOUNG (1940), SUMMER STORM (1944), UNFAITHFULLY YOURS (1948), and  MY DARLING CLEMENTINE (1946).



Kaneshiro began as a singer before appearing in 1993's EXECUTIONERS directed by Ching Siu-Tung and Johnnie To and Wong Kar Wai's CHUNGKING EXPRESS (1994). Since then he's appeared in such films as DR. WAI IN THE SCRIPTURE WITH NO WORDS (1996), THE HOUSE OF FLYING DAGGERS (2004), and John Woo's recent epic RED CLIFF.

You'll find the Actor's Spotlight section on the shelves to the right of the stairs, just before the Second Take section.
