Burt Kwouk, 1930-2016

British character actor Burt Kwouk has died at the age of 85. Kwouk is probably best remembered for playing Cato Fong in several of the Pink Panther movies. He also had a small part as Ling in Goldfinger.

One movie Kwouk was in that recently showed up on the FXM schedule again is Satan Never Sleeps. I thought it was on this week's schedule, but apparently it must have been earlier this week. The satellite box guide says the next airing won't be until June 6, or a week from this coming Monday. (Now if FXM can bring back The Chairman, in which Kwouk also appears.)

Monday having been mentioned, that's Memorial Day, and TCM is showing 55 Days at Peking, to which Kwouk apparently lends his voice, at least according to IMDb. That'll be on at 11:30 AM on the 30th.
