One Bronson Movie On Blu-Ray Isn’t Enough

One Charles Bronson movie on Blu-Ray isn’t enough.  That’s why Mill Creek Entertainment is releasing four of them together in the Charles Bronson Collection.  Expect this release early April.  Further info below!

SYNOPSIS

Internationally acclaimed action star, Charles Bronson, is the definitive on-screen “tough guy.” His legendary status was solidified in the midst of his career with a series of leading roles in gritty, crime dramas.   This action-packed collection showcases his diverse career with 4 knockout films!

THE VALACHI PAPERS (1972) – The cold-blooded, no holds barred, adaptation of Joseph Valachi’s explosive testimony while in prison that exposed unthinkable mob activity in the United States.

THE STONE KILLER (1973) – Crime drama about a tough New York cop who discovers that a gangster is planning a massacre; revenge for a shootout which introduced non-Sicilian elements to organized crime.

BREAKOUT (1975) – A Texas bush pilot is hired by a woman to help break out her husband who is imprisoned in Mexico on a framed charge that was engineered by his Grandfather.

HARD TIMES (1975) – Walter Hill’s directorial debut is a raw, bare-knuckled view of street brawlers starring Bronson as a quiet but brutal fighter supported by a chatty and sly promoter played by James Coburn.

    Absolutely freakin’ awesome, now their is no need for me to buy the overpriced Twilight Time blu-ray of “The Valachi Papers”. Still it would have been nice for some extras which Mill Creek isn’t known for.

    I already have 3 of these films but would buy this set for the cover alone.

    Breakout is notable for being the first major studio film to be opened the way we’re used to films being released today- with a big marketing campaign and opening nationwide on the same day. (Tom Laughlin had successfully used the approach with his independent film The Trial of Billy Jack a few months earlier.) Universal soon copied the idea with Jaws and that basically cemented it as Hollywood’s new standard.

    The Stone Killer is the film Bronson was making when he was approached by director Michael Winner about making a film called Death Wish. Winner said it was about a guy who shot muggers and Bronson replied, “I’d love to do that.” Winner asked “You mean the film?” to which Bronson clarified “No, shoot muggers! But yeah, I’ll do the film.”
