    It could have been worse you could have had one of those Boots Wraps - - always a Greggs bag of goodness when in Glasgow...

    My fav Carradine movie has to be Death Race 2000 - I even have the late 90s Lucas T-Shirt for this one...

      Very sad news, one of my favourite actors. Death Race 2000 was probably his greatest moment, but he was also superb in Q-The Winged Serpent, Lone Wolf McQuade, Circle Of Iron and of ton of video productions in the 80s, a lot of them involving Vietnam. There was a great 2-part interview in the old Psychotronic zine that made me respect him even more.

          I remember enjoying "Americana" when it was shown on TV sometime in the eighties.

          The "Kung Fu" TV series will forever remind me of my school days with a playground full of kids leaping around kicking and chopping each other.

          Essential veiwing at the time along with Budgie and Monty Python.

            I always think of it as Mary Woronov's movie, but that's probably because despite Calamity Jane's early demise I got to interview her (and not, sadly, Mr Carradine or Sylvester Stallone) at the Lux cinema when her 'Swimming Underground' book came out. I've had a soft spot for her ever since.

            What an amazing career she had...from The Exploding Plastic Inevitable and Chelsea Girls to Ronald Tavel's Theatre Of The Riduculous to Roger Corman/Paul Bartel exploitos, to haranguing The Ramones in Rock'n'Roll High School, hosing down Charlie's Angels in a women's prison and rounding it all off with Eating Raoul and a Gregg Araki movie before taking up painting and writing...

            Absolutely lovely lady as well.
