    I wonder if he left a sucide note. His kung fu character was so well grounded but i guess the actor was not. :cry:

      He was 72. At that age how do you tell the difference from euthanasia and suicide due to depression or such?

        Well, a hanging a dude is not the usual method of euthanasia, for one thing.

            Loved the show and the character, but he couldn't shake his own vision of being the character any more than Clayton Moore could stop being the Lone Ranger. I wonder if it was his self-image that drove him to his death.

                I know, it's a bummer. But as we know some choose not to prolong illness. But i do agree with bh above, obviously no one here can speculate reliably on this.

                I do remember enjoying Kungfu on TV, it was a Sunday afternoon staple along with 'Randall and Hopkirk' and 'Thunderbirds are Go'.

                    No, he didn't. He's still on first base.

                      He was just fantastic in the Kill Bill movies. And I remember Kung Fu from my rapidly receding childhood. I think I remember it. It'll come back to me.

                        The radio news talked about Kill Bill in the lead-in to the Carradine story, and I had no idea what they were referring to.

                        Carradine was, and always will be, Kung Fu.
