I was doing a write-up on Ozu's film Floating Weeds in the Movie Lovers March 2020 thread, which inspired me to look up her obituary from last year in the New York Times.

Richard Sandomir. NYT, 05/17/2020: Machiko Kyo, Star of ‘Rashomon’ and Other Films, Dies at 95.

In addition to Rashomon and Floating Weeds, I forgot she was in one of Kenji Mizoguchi's greatest films, Ugetsu, playing the mysterious woman with whom the potter has a dalliance that goes on for some time. In both Rashomon and Ugetsu she wears period make-up which makes her look scary; check out Floating Weeds for a glimpse of her in a modern setting (1959), where to me her beauty is comparable to the film noir heroines of the 40's and 50's.
