#3 So far the indicators are autoerotic asphyxiation. The Carradines are a notoriously randy bunch. He had five wives and two kids. His father had four wives and four kids.

#4 I'm not buying suicide as he had posted on twitter or his blog or something that same day and nothing seemed amiss.

May he rest in peace.

#5 His father was the former Confederate gentleman turned gambler, in John Ford's "Stagecoach" a terrific movie who would have harvested many Oscars had it not been released the same year than "Gone with the wind". Lucky times tghen when Hollywood was able to release fantastic movies faster than Detroit built cars.

#6 Carradine is the family curse?!
I think that watching this movie, you will be able to understand why it happened.
See the last interview:Carradine-film

#7 Script from every Kung Fu TV show:

"Don't touch that water Chinaman"
"Is water not pure?"
Slo mo erstaz kung fu asskicking commences.

What's the under/over on auto-exfixiation?

#9 I loved his show when I was a kid. The original series "Kung FU" still stands as great television. I probably felt more strongly about the moral lessons delivered from Master Po than those I received in my Hebrew school.

#12 at age 72, dying during a sex act sounds not so bad. Better if you're not alone, tho

#13 "Kill Bill star died 'during sex act'"

While I'm still sorry he's dead, that makes me feel a lot better than thinking he killed himself on purpose.
