  • Notes

    • Guest star David Carradine is the older brother (actually half-brother) of Robert Carradine (Sam McGuire). He was the star of Kung Fu (1972-75), one of the most unlikely hit TV series of all time. He appears here dressed the same as he did on that show, although his character is more like Master Kan's and Matt assumes the role of Caine, David's old part.

      The Carradines are one of the best-known acting families in Hollywood history. Robert and David have another famous acting brother, Keith; and their father John had a motion picture career that lasted well over fifty years. Robert is the father of actress Ever Carradine, Keith is the father of actress Martha Plimpton, and David is the father of a son with actress Barbara Hershey.

      The Carradine brothers have worked together in different combinations in many films and TV shows during their careers. One of the most notable was the 1980 western The Long Riders, about the James-Younger gang of the 1800's. David, Keith and Robert played outlaws Cole, Jim and Bob Younger, respectively; and the movie also features three other sets of real-life brothers playing siblings: James and Stacey Keach (Jesse and Frank James), Dennis and Randy Quaid (Ed and Clell Miller), and Christopher and Nicholas Guest (Charlie and Bob Ford).
