The Daily Beast: Greatest Hollywood Dynasties

The Carradines

Patriarch John Carradine could have opened his own acting school, so many of his progeny went into show business. Known for his roles in "The Grapes of Wrath" and "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance," Carradine starred in more than 200 movies throughout his decades-long career. Sons David, Keith, and Robert all forged successful careers of their own—with David starring on the 1970s TV series "Kung Fu" and the "Kill Bill" films, Keith appearing in a range of dramas and earning an Oscar for his songwriting, and Robert starring in the "Revenge of the Nerds" movies and in Disney’s "Lizzie McGuire." The Carradine dynasty continued into a third generation with Keith’s daughter, actress Martha Plimpton. The family was cast into the spotlight this summer when David, 72, was found dead in his hotel room in Thailand. (Photo by Mat Szwajkos/Getty Images/Andrew H.
