bound for glory (1976) - hal ashby

Grasshopper David Carradine plays Woody Guthrie in 'Bound For Glory'. Not too convincingly for my liking, but it was OK l guess, and it certainly evoked the period of the dust bowl. Based on the 1943 Guthrie autobiography of the same name (which is a lot better).
It's a shame Carradine will now always be remembered as dying in a accidental (it's assumed) sex hanging.
What a way to shuffle off (sort of) this mortal coil. Master Po would have been most disappointed.
