    Hi Steve,
    Thanks for the pics of Richard Herd. I’m a big fan of older films on TCM and have seen him act in many of them. Can’t help wondering…did Kiyo ever have any children by any of her many men?

      Christina m. Hi. No kiyo never had children. She had a tubular pregnancy which rendered her sterile.
