Sonny Chiba was a Japanese actor and martial artist, a contemporary to Bruce Lee in Hong Kong.
I give you the opening title scene of Karate Kiba (1973) and the episode from Japanorama from 2007.
The Karate Kiba sequence has been copied nearly verbatim in Pulp Fiction (1994).
Joe Shishido was a Japanese actor known for his eccentric yakuza film roles and his artificially enlarged cheekbones. He also played in Japanese exploitation exercises such as Gate of Flesh (1964).
The clip above is a tribute to Joe Shishido, a montage of clips from A Colt Is My Passport (1967). It is, as is usual with this kind of endeavors, more interesting than the product it is based upon.
