Movie Posters of the Week: David Carradine R.I.P.

David Carradine, who died yesterday at the age of 72, is undoubtedly best
known for the television show that defined him, Kung Fu, as well as for a
string of cheesy action movies that played off his martial arts persona. But
Carradine had also worked with a remarkable number of name directors, from
Ingmar Bergman (in the notorious The Serpent's Egg) to Scorsese (for whom he starred in Boxcar Bertha and had a cameo in Mean Streets) to Walter Hill
(acting opposite his brothers in The Long Riders) to Hal Ashby (playing
Woody Guthrie in Bound for Glory) to Quentin Tarantino (his 21st Century
resurrection as the titular target of Kill Bill). Rest in peace Grasshopper.
