Looks good but I am getting no audio. Is this problem on my end? I am having fun second guessing what you’re saying.
Hi George. Played fine on my end and on youtube as well. Thought you might like this one.
This is great, I love to see the posters in your collection so I hope you do more of these. Well done overview plus a reminder of some I haven’t seen yet, like Murphy’s Law and Death Hunt. oh, and yes, there’s no such thing as a guilty pleasure!
I was testing you there….haha. Guess I’ll have to drop off some titles next visit. Fun to do one of these after so long. Hopefully someone watching.
Very nice. Lovely selection of posters and a good overview of the man’s career. I enjoyed seeing you stick up for Rider on the Rain, Red Sun and especially White Buffalo.
Anything else I might have included? Maybe Telefon.
Thanks. Another vote for White Buffalo. Glad. I for one like the look of the film and what they were aiming for. I featured Telefon poster recently in my Don Siegel gallery. I will of course defend the movie but deep down still think it’s a missed opportunity.
Yes, it’s one of those films I guess is something of a guilty pleasure, even though I don’t particularly like that term. I think I first saw it at the right time and it just kind of became stuck in my affections. I love the climax in the bar with the tinny piano playing, the snake and the tension.
I’ve always enjoyed the poem setting off the deep cover agents. The woods are lonely……miles to go before I sleep.
Yes, agreed. It’s a nice touch and very memorable.
Great video! Nice collection by the way!
Thanks Cory. Always fun to share or perhaps showoff a better word ones collection.
Hi Mike – Amazing posters! I never was a huge Bronson fan, but I recently watched HARD TIMES which was excellent, so I hope to check out several of the films you mentioned in your starter kit. So who’s next?
Glad you liked Hard Times, really a hidden gem. Always fun to show off one’s collection. Not sure on the next outing but will be sure to follow up either in video or written form. Thanks for watching. 🙂
Reblogged this on Mike's Take On the Movies ………. Rediscovering Cinema's Past and commented:
On Charles Bronson’s birthday, you should be having a look at the Bronson starter kit if you already haven’t. Pick a favorite and give it a go!
Hey Mike. Top video and what a fantastic collection of Bronson posters, incredible. Now I need to see “Red Sun”! Total missed that one, what a great cover image. It’s got a samurai and Ursula Andress, has to be essential viewing. Straight on my to watch list. Never heard of “Noon to 3” either but not rushing out for that one hehe. Thanks for the heads up on the “The White Buffalo” too. That sounds like good fun. Totally agree on Murphy’s Law. Not one I sing from the trees about but definitely have a soft spot for….. Another one I remember thats needs a rewatch is Chato’s Land….. Thanks for the informative video. All the best… Wolfman
You have more than a couple hours of sheer enjoyment ahead. I’m jealous but then a rewatch on these can solve that easily enough. Chato’s land a real good one. If you can I’d suggest the Twilight Time blu ray. A really nice print. Thanks for the compliment on the vid and poster collection. A lifetime of collecting.
Thanks for the tip Mike. They do look like they LOVE their films over at Twilight Time…. A lifetime well spent on those sweet posters and video collection. All the best
Good bit. I hung out in Saturday matinees in the 70’s watching Charles do his thing. You mentioned Al Lettieri. I loved all those guys like him that gave Bronson a reason to feed them knuckle sandwiches.
Lettieri had a great presence opposite the 70’s icons. Died way to young. Anyway, my sons helped me out on this one and we had fun putting it together.
He’s one of my all time favorite bad asses. I’ll be back for more of your takes. “Fun” is the word.
