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/RogueMale Man Hunt]]'', ''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]].

Other major films that Carradine appeared in include ''[[Literature/RogueMale Man Hunt]]'', ''Literature/CaptainsCourageous'' and ''Film/TheTenCommandments.''

Easily one of the most prolific actors who ever lived (if not '''THE''' most). His entire filmography (as listed by IMDB) comes to 340 titles, dwarfing even the 275 titles of Creator/ChristopherLee (incidentally, Lee and Carradine actually share one credit: ''House of the Long Shadows'', [[AllStarCast in which they appeared alongside]] Creator/VincentPrice, Creator/PeterCushing and [[AndZoidberg Desi Arnaz, Jr]]).

Still, best known for all those B-movies. Easily one of the most prolific actors who ever lived (if not '''THE''' most).
