No Bronson fans here at ATS? That last reply wasn't the kind I was expecting.
Not only was Charles Bronson a great actor, but he also was a driver and a tail gunner in the United States Army Air Corps, more specifically on B-29s
in the 20th Air Force.
LIST OF BRONSON FILMS
Some interesting facts:
- In 1963 Sergio Leone asked Bronson to star in his western "A Fistful of Dollars". He turned the roll down, so Leone asked Clint Eastwood. Bronson
was not the first actor Leone asked to play the "Man With No Name". Richard Harrison also made the same mistake that Bronson made.
- Charles Bronson's second wife Jill Ireland co-starred in no less than 15 movies beside her husband before she died of cancer in 1990.The first one
was "Villa Rides" filmed in 1968 and the last one was "Assassination" filmed in 1987.
- Charles Bronson has starred in a lot of TV series between 1953 and 1967 prior to his breakthrough in movie making in 1968 when Once upon a time
...in the West came out.
