David Carradine: 1936 - 2009

You've probably all heard the very sad news about David Carradine; found dead yesterday in a hotel room in Bangkok, from an apparent suicide. He will definitely be missed.

In honor of Mr. Carradine, I'm posting this scene from one of his greatest films. In the final shootout of the Walter Hill directed The Long Riders, things go horribly wrong when Frank and Jesse James (James & Stacy Keach) attempt a bank robbery, with Cole, Jim and Bob Younger (David, Keith & Robert Carradine) waiting outside, Every detail of the shootout, from the editing to the sound effects, combine to make this one of the greatest shootouts in the history of Westerns

If I know anything about those Carradine boys (and I think I do), I'm kind of guessing that it is going to come out that it wasn't a suicide, but an accident.

Nevertheless, Jelio, the shootout from Long Riders is pitch perfect. I love that movie, and, indeed, it was Carradine's best (better than Kill Bill vol. either) overall movie, thanks to absolutely perfect direction.

Thanks DSB. And I think you're right. I've already read articles saying Mr. Carradine was actually attempting a Michael Hutchence when he shuffled off this mortal coil.

Hmm, I wonder if Carradine found out how to pleasure himself that way from the yellow book?

B, I've checked....There is no listing for Autoerotic Asphyxia. And you should have heard the awkward silence when i called 411.
