Season 3 Episode 6- Having discovered a picture of his brother Danny posing with 4 others, Caine learns that the photographer, Beaumont (Lew Ayres), is dying after a long illness brought on by his work, spending the better part of his life capturing the beauty of nature as opposed to remaining in the studio. Caine also meets an Indian youth, Matoska (Tom Nardini), who tries to kill Beaumont after being photographed holding a huge fish, believing that each picture takes away the soul of the one in the portrait. Beaumont is able to identify which one is Danny Caine, just moments before he draws his final breath. Also patiently waiting for a showdown with Caine is Sai Si (Bill Saito), emissary for the Order of the Avenging Dragon, demanding the death of the priest for killing the nephew of the Emperor, a plot line that continues into the two-part story that follows, "Blood of the Dragon" (Tad Horino appears unbilled as the Cowled Head). Making his final appearance on KUNG FU is Hollywood veteran Benson Fong, here playing Li Yu, an old man in China, collecting discarded pieces of no value to create a monument of his own choosing. As Master Po (Keye Luke) tells young student Caine (Radames Pera): "not knowing a man's purpose does not make HIM confused." Seeing both Charlie Chan sons together provides one of the most enduring pleasures offered by KING FU. Next up- "Blood of the Dragon"
