1[on Cedric Hardwicke] He had a wonderful quality that I noticed even before I ever met him. A wonderful quality of stillness in his face. Not a muscle ever moved, yet he conveyed wonderful things.
2[on Bela Lugosi] Oh, he was a charming man. He always had a bucket of red wine on the set which he pulled out gracefully all day long. He never forgot his line... he never lost his affability. He was a very affable man.
3[In 1973] I know, of course, that no self estimate is sure, but I think I'm better at acting than I am at dairy farming.
4[In 1972] I still have an awful load to carry. I've been carrying a heavy load for thirty years. My youngest son is only 16; my next boy is 22. I've got a ways to go before I can call my life my own.
5Never do anything you wouldn't want to be caught dead doing.
6Lionel Barrymore then had hands like mine are now--arthritic talons.
7I am a ham! And the ham in an actor is what makes him interesting.
8[on John Ford] Oh, Ford was a peculiar man. You had to know how to handle him. Actors were terrified of him because he liked to terrify them. He was a sadist.
9[on Cecil B. DeMille] I was very fond of him. I never saw him direct an actor; his specialty was the camera. He simply hired the best actors he could get and let them do their job. He didn't interfere with them unless something was drastically wrong. DeMille's specialty was the camera, the pageantry.
10[on Darryl F. Zanuck] Nobody liked working for Zanuck, the little goddamn Napoleon, always walking around with his polo mallet. Nobody had any respect for him except as an executive. And he was a good editor at one time, but he fancied himself a writer, and he was not a good writer.
11Directors never direct me. They just turn me loose.
12As for making movies, who can act at eight o'clock in the morning? Let's face it!
13[his last words before passing away in Milan, Italy] Milan. What a beautiful place to die.
14I've made some of the greatest films ever made - and a lot of crap, too.
1Although he played Martha Scott's son in The Ten Commandments (1956), he was six years her senior in real life.
2He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6240 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California on February 8, 1960.
3He had two roles in common with his The McMasters (1970) co-star Jack Palance: (1) Carradine played Count Dracula in House of Frankenstein (1944), House of Dracula (1945), Billy the Kid Versus Dracula (1966) and Nocturna (1979) while Palance played him in Dracula (1974) and (2) Carradine played Ebenezer Scrooge in A Christmas Carol (1947) while Palance played him in Ebenezer (1998).
4He appeared with Lon Chaney Jr. in 11 films: This Is My Affair (1937), Jesse James (1939), Frontier Marshal (1939), House of Frankenstein (1944), The Mummy's Ghost (1944), House of Dracula (1945), Casanova's Big Night (1954), The Black Sleep (1956), House of the Black Death (1965), Gallery of Horror (1967) and Hillbillys in a Haunted House (1967).
5He appeared with Basil Rathbone in seven films: The Garden of Allah (1936), The Hound of the Baskervilles (1939), Casanova's Big Night (1954), The Court Jester (1955), The Black Sleep (1956) The Last Hurrah (1958) and Hillbillys in a Haunted House (1967).
6He appeared with Vincent Price in seven films: Brigham Young (1940), Casanova's Big Night (1954), The Ten Commandments (1956), The Story of Mankind (1957), The Trouble with Girls (1969), The Monster Club (1981) and House of the Long Shadows (1983).
7He appeared with Peter Lorre in eight films: Nancy Steele Is Missing! (1937), Thank You, Mr. Moto (1937), I'll Give a Million (1938), Mr. Moto's Last Warning (1939), Around the World in Eighty Days (1956), Hell Ship Mutiny (1957), The Story of Mankind (1957) and The Patsy (1964).
8He played Count Dracula in four films: House of Frankenstein (1944), House of Dracula (1945), Billy the Kid Versus Dracula (1966) and Nocturna (1979).
9After a family dispute, he left home to become an assistant to renowned Philadelphia sculptor Daniel Chester French.
10He hitchhiked to California, earning his way as a quick-sketch artist.
11Whispering Ghosts (1942) was his last film under his long-term Fox contract.
12He made guest appearances on both The Twilight Zone (1959) and The Twilight Zone (1985).
13According to Jim Beaver's career article on Carradine for the October 1979 issue of "Films in Review", writer Tennessee Williams wrote the role of Big Daddy in "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" with Carradine in mind, although other commitments kept him out of the Broadway production in favor of Burl Ives. However, Carradine did play the role in a 1977 Los Angeles production.
14Jailed briefly in 1953 on contempt of court charges for falling behind on his alimony payments.
15His own touring productions of "The Merchant of Venice", "Hamlet" and "Othello" outgrossed Maurice Evans' celebrated 1940 version of "Hamlet". During the San Francisco run, Carradine always had a memorial seat reserved for his close friend, the late John Barrymore.
16Officially changed his name from John Peter Richmond to John Carradine in early 1935.
17His first co-starring role with Boris Karloff came in 1929 during a ten-week run of "Window Panes" in Figueroa, California. Carradine played a dimwit and Karloff played a Grigory Rasputin-like character.
18Made his stage debut in 1925 in "Camille" in New Orleans, Louisiana.
19According to oldest son David Carradine in "Hollywood and Whine", "... we carted the coffin over to our house and opened it up. I looked down at him, and the undertaker had put a demonic, artificial grin on his face--like nothing I had ever seen him do in real life, except in a horror film. I reached out and, using the sculptural skills I had learned from him, I remodeled his face to be more naturally like him. Then I poured half a bottle of J&B scotch, his favorite, down his throat, and we had a wake".
20Had the word "HAM" in his license plates on his Mercedes-Benz when he lived in Santa Barbara, California.
21In later life, he suffered from crippling arthritis, but continued to work.
22Claimed near the end of his life to have appeared in more movies than any other actor, surpassing the record set by Donald Crisp, the Oscar-winning actor and director who had started in silent movies and had appeared in numerous one- and two-reel films, many of them lost. The title for actor who appeared in most films likely is a contest between Carradine (more than 300 films) and Crisp (at least 170 known films). Of the contemporary generation, Christopher Lee, who has acted in more films than his peers (over 200), does not come close to matching Carradine's prolific output.
23Biography in: "The Scribner Encyclopedia of American Lives". Volume Two, 1986-1990, pages 165-167. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1999.
24Inducted into the Hall of Great Western Performers of the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in 2003.
25Always ranked his performance in Bluebeard (1944) high among his career favorites.
26Grandfather of Martha Plimpton, Ever Carradine and Kansas Carradine.
27He was of English, with more distant Irish and Dutch, ancestry. John was sometimes said to have Italian or Spanish roots, from the surname "Carradine", but his last traceable patrilineal ancestor, a man named Parker Carradine, was born, c. 1755, in the state of Georgia, and had no evident Spanish or Italian origins.
28Father of Chris Carradine, David Carradine, Keith Carradine and Robert Carradine. Adoptive father of Bruce Carradine.
