Reiko Ike (池玲子)(b. May 25, 1953) was a Japanese actress whose involvement in the 1970s film industry elevated her to the status of a national sex icon.

Her troubles with the law (she was arrested once for drug use and once for illegal gambling) bring her allure as a cult figure into yet sharper focus. Read more on Last.fm.
