Marina Anderson was just starting out, taking acting lessons at Warner Bros., when she wandered one afternoon onto the candlelit set of a Shaolin temple and met, for the first time, the unpredictable, mysterious, and brilliant personality that was actor David Carradine. David Carradine's acting career spanned four decades on stage, television and cinema. He became an international sensation as Kwai Chang Caine in the 1970s hit television series Kung Fu and cemented his cult hero status with his role in the classic movie Death Race 2000. He portrayed Woody Guthrie in Hal Ashby's Bound for Glory and Bill in Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill films. Carradine received four Golden Globe nominations. He was a talented songwriter and musician and performed in a band called Cosmic Rescue Team. Twenty years later, David and Marina became lovers. They were married on the Warner Bros. back lot and their six-year relationship was a whirl of auditions, star-studded parties, exotic locations, red carpets, and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Marina, by then an established actress, became Carradine's manager and set about rehabilitating the career of an actor who was now known for his heavy drinking. She introduced him to Quentin Tarantino, who cast David in a lead role in the popular Kill Bill films. This vaulted Carradine back onto the Hollywood A-list. David and Marina's private life was replete with love, passion and erotic pleasure. Yet, it was also marred by a toxic secret that could not be ignored. Marina was on a trip to Toronto when she received word that David was packing and preparing to move out. David Carradine died in a Bangkok hotel room on June 3, 2009 under mysterious circumstances. Amid sensational media speculation, Marina launched her own investigation into the death of her ex-husband. Her conclusions are startling. Marina's revealing interview with Dr. Drew Pinsky also analyses the complex man that was David Carradine.
