1950's News-clippings

June 2017
Recently I was able to find more than 150 news-clippings on Yoshiko - all mainly within her 1950 - 1958 phase when she came to the United States (or 'occupied' the American media). Instead of putting these articles in the biography chronologically (it takes a lot of time), I just decided to put them all on one page where they can be read and appreciated all in one go, so here they are:

1955 Sep 11: (that's Sam Fuller standing on top of the scaffold while shooting this famous statue):
The Great Buddha of Kamakura is a monumental outdoor bronze statue of Amitābha Buddha located at the Kōtoku-in Temple in Kamakura, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. The bronze statue probably dates from 1252, in the Kamakura period, according to temple records. It was preceded by a giant wooden Buddha, which was completed in 1243 after ten years of continuous labor, the funds having been raised by Lady Inada (Inada-no-Tsubone) and the Buddhist priest Jōkō of Tōtōmi. That wooden statue was damaged by a storm in 1248, and the hall containing it was destroyed, so Jōkō suggested making another statue of bronze, and the huge amount of money necessary for this and for a new hall was raised for the project. The bronze image was probably cast by Ōno Gorōemon or Tanji Hisatomo, both leading casters of the time. At one time, the statue was gilded. There are still traces of gold leaf near the statue's ears.
