David Carradine 1936-2009

It has been reported that David Carradine was found dead in Bangkok where he was to begin filming a movie.

Carradine was 72, and had been in numerous movies. His most famous or I should say most memorable was that of Kwai Chang Caine of the series "Kung Fu" which aired in 1972 to 1975.

Over the many years, Carradine has appeared in over 200 motion pictures and television dramas, including numerous plays. He was also a producer, director, and writer, for the screen as well.

My favorite film of Carradine is Bound for Glory (1976) where he played Woody Guthrie. Hal Ashby directed the film. Carradine will be missed.
