** It didn't even have to be that '''''much''''' money. In Creator/JoeDante's DVDCommentary for ''TheHowling'', he tells the story of how, at one point during the shoot, Carradine was carrying around snacks that he bought himself, and wrapped in heavy blankets because there was no heat in his trailer. The man was '''''so''''' accustomed to working in no-budget films that ''it never even occurred to him'' that the film's budget should have been able to cover his food and heating costs!

* FamousLastWords: "Milan is a good place to die." He said it just before lapsing into a coma he never woke from, after climbing a cathedral with his son David despite his crippling arthritis.

Often cited as a poster child for MoneyDearBoy, Carradine's willingness to take any role actually stems from a passion project. In the '30s and '40s he managed a Shakespearean repertory company, John Carradine and His Shakespeare Players, which performed in San Francisco. Carradine's performances were highly acclaimed, but money was always tight, forcing Carradine to fund these productions out of pocket. When the Shakespeare Players collapsed, Carradine found himself in dire financial straits, forcing him to continue appearing in roles beneath his talent.

For the record, he '''did''' have some actual good roles. Carradine was a favorite of Creator/JohnFord and appeared in several classic Ford films, including ''Literature/TheGrapesOfWrath'', ''Film/{{Stagecoach}}'', and ''Film/DrumsAlongTheMohawk''. Other major films that Carradine appeared in include ''Literature/CaptainsCourageous'' and ''Film/TheTenCommandments.'' He had a decent stage acting career, being a protege of John Barrymore and playing roles such as the lead in ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}},'' and he's also remembered as the father of [[Film/KillBill David]] [[Series/KungFu Carradine]], [[Film/RevengeOfTheNerds Robert Carradine]] and [[Film/{{Nashville}} Keith Carradine]].
