An original costume for Tiger Tanaka, played by Tetsuro Tanba in 1967's 'You Only Live Twice', is going up for auction this week
A traditional Japanese costume made for Tetsuro Tanba for the 1967 James Bond adventure "You Only Live Twice" is going up for auction this week at Bonham's in London with an estimated sale price of £1,000.
The costume was originally gifted to Mark Pollard after the production of "You Only Live Twice" wrapped. Pollard was the assistant voice coach on the production and worked exclusively with Tetsuro Tanba who played Tiger Tanaka. Tanba insisted that he was trained by a male voice coach throughout filming resulting in Pollard having no time to work with any of the other cast members.
