Just heard that David Carradine has died.

He was the star of the classic 70s television show Kung Fu. It was about a half-Chinese martial arts expert inexplicably wandering the old West putting a beating on gunslingers. This led to such cultural touchstones as G.I. Joe with the Kung Fu grip and the hideous song Kung Fu Fighting. The age of enlightenment it was not.

Carradine was actually much better when he played Woody Guthrie in Bound For Glory in 1975. If you’ve never seen that, it’s a very solid film. He also was Bill in Kill Bill.
