David Carradine's Wife: Film Co. Caused Death

6/3/2010 8:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

David Carradine's wife is suing the production company of the movie he was shooting when he died, claiming the company should never have left David alone that night.

According to the suit and obtained by TMZ, on the night David died he was supposed to have dinner with the director of the movie he was shooting -- "Stretch."  The suit claims the production company assigned an assistant to David who was responsible for his schedule and transportation.

Before the dinner, the assistant called David but he didn't answer. The assistant then left for dinner without David.  An hour later, David reached the assistant but was told "they were already across town and David Carradine would have to make his own arrangements that evening."

David was found naked in a closet in his hotel room, where he died from auto-erotic asphyxiation one year ago today.

The bottom line -- Mark Geragos, lawyer for Anne Carradine, claims David -- who was only in Bangkok for 3 days -- would not have died had the production company fulfilled its obligations and followed industry standards in caring for its star.

She can't be blaming anyone for that. He has been doing that for a long time. She needs to get a job.

When are we going to shut down frivolous lawsuits. This is absurd. When do people take responsibility for themselves.

Give me a break....He was a grown man. Perfectly capable of calling a taxi or rickshaw or something. Instead he chose to j@ckoff to the point of killing himself. Nobody's fault but his own.

Was Carradine five years old? No, he was 72 and fully capable of taking care of himself. He killed himself. The production company had no duty to protect Carradine from his own stupidity. This is nothing but pure greed.

Oh brother! She knew him better than anyone. If he needed a babysitter she should have gone with him or arranged for a friend or family member to go with him for the duration of the shoot. If she wants to blame someone she should look in the mirror.

Even if he had gone to dinner he could still have come back and done the same thing. It's not their fault he had some kind of problem. Maybe she shouldn't have let him leave the house since he needed to be watched all the time. He could have done this anywhere quit looking for someone to blame.

He was found dead, hanging in a closet wearing women's underwear (yes, NOT naked)...and it's the production company's fault?
