I heard this morning on the radio that Charles Bronson died last night, it was rather a coincidence that one of his best films, Once upon a time in the West was shown on TV last night.

I watched that film last night. I thought a lot about him, so it was a shock to discover he had died. Of course he was already dead when Once Upon A Time... was shown, since as far as I know he died on Saturday, but it's still a rather wierd coincidence we only find out about it until the morning after one of his films is aired. Quite a shame, though I guess 81 is a good innings as they say, I suppose  frown

I liked Bronson.  He was one cool cat.  The first Deathwish movie is a classic.

Legend, now gone off to join his missus.

Agree with Spicey, Death Wish is a classic.

I really liked Charles Bronson too.  I remember watching him in movies on tv like the Magnificent Seven and some of the old Corman movies.  He was great, though the last good movie that I liked of his was probably Death Wish 1.

I remember the Death Wish spoof from the Simpsons. It went something like:
"Death Wish VII:
Camera zooms in on Bronson lying in a bed, saying
"I wish I was dead."


*sigh*
I liked the guy. I saw part of the movie on BBC as well. I wonder if they'll play the theme on his funeral.

...or how about the one where they get off the train at "Bronson", Missouri and everyone in the town is like Charles Bronson.

Bronson Little Boy: "Hey, Ma, how 'bout some cookie?"
Bronson Mother: "No dice."

Mr. Bronson is one of my dad's favorite actors.  It seems like he's always watching one of his movies.  A few months ago I finally saw the original Death Wish all the way through.  It actually has quite a bit more depth than you'd think.  It's pretty good stuff.

They have shown Mr. Majestyk last evening. I liked him very much in that movie (you remember the biggest melon massacre in the movie history?). Other Bronson movies I liked were Once upon a time in the west, The Dirty Dozen and The Magnificient Seven. Its sad to hear that another great actor has gone.

Charles Bronson guest hosts the Andy Griffith Show:

Some Guy: (Somebody) isn't in his cell.
Bronson: I, uh, shot him.
SG: What?
B: Now I'm off to Otis's Fix-it Shop to "fix" Otis.

Barny: Otis isn't in his cell!
Bronson: I shot 'em!
Barny: oh, What!
Bronson: Now I'm going to Emmit's fix it shop to fix Emmit.
(Andy Griffith music as Bronson walks out the door)

I still laugh everytime I see it.
