The son of veteran actor John Carradine has built his career around his ability to portray strange and often bizarre characters. His Broadway performances include roles as a hippie who claimed to be Christ in "The Transgressor Rides Again," and an Inca king in "The Royal Hung of the Sun." Carradine will be seen in still another unusual portrayaal when he stars in "Kung Fu," a unique western drama on "Movie of the Week" Tuesday, August 8 (8:3010:00 p.m.) on Channel 3-5-8. In "Kung Fu," Carradine portrays a Chinese-American fugitive from a murder charge in Imperial China. Working on the transcontinental railroad in the 1860's, he uses his knowledge of the ancient art of personal combat, kung fu, to help the coolies labroing on the railroad overcome wretched working conditions. "I feel that this is the beest part I've ever had. In fact, it's not like anything I have ever seen done on film. The man I play uses physical mental strength to . .become. what, I. like, to call a humble hero. It was a difficult character to learn because I was so unfamiliar with the art of kung fu and its background. But we had a billiant technical advisor in David Chow, a world renowned expert on the subject." Besides being an outstanding opportunity for him as an actor, Carradine claims "Kung Fu" helped him in an another area - it brought him closer to his father. "My dad and I are in constant debate about the parts I play," he said. "He was brought up in an age when characters on screen and stage were complete people with little or no psyche to try to figure it out. He seldom has understood any of my characterizations. "When I first read 'Kung Fu' I sent him a copy. His reaction was mot favorable and he said the part reminded him of some great screen characters of the past. I think it will open a whole new avenue of communication between us." Caradine figures that there is one kind of part he won't be getting for a while. "I had to have amy head completely shaved for the film which means that unless I get a wig there won't be any hippie in my acting future for a while. . ."
