Sound On Sight Radio #127 – David Carradine special / Film News

127

Two weeks ago, cult film icon David Carradine passed away, so we thought it appropriate to put together a little tribute to the man. While most contemporary viewers know him as Uma Thurman’s titular target in Kill Bill, he had a long and varied career stretching back several decades. He became known in the 1970s principally for his role in TV’s “Kung Fu,” but soon broke out into the film world with a string of prominent roles in offbeat projects; we’ll take a look at three of them – Martin Scorcese’s early film “Boxcar Bertha;” and two films by cult director Paul Bartel, “Cannonball!” and, of course, “Death Race 2000.”
