Charles Bronson

Charles Bronson In the ‘60s, he starred in such action classics as “The Great Escape,” “The Magnificent Seven” and “Once Upon a Time in the West,” but by the time the ‘80s arrived, he was cashing in on his “Death Wish” notoriety in sequel after sequel, along with violent flicks like “Act of Vengeance” and “Messenger of Death.” Post-‘80s highlight: Bronson was able to escape the low-budget action genre with his appearance in the TV movie adaptation of Jack London’s “The Sea Wolf.” Post-‘80s lowlight: “Death Wish V: The Face of Death” (1994) Where are they now? Bronson died of pneumonia and Alzheimer’s disease in 2003.
