Bronson fans don't have much of a choice when it comes to learning more about this international icon. It's hard to belive more hasn't been written considering his status in movie history.
Downing's book is a great source that basically walks thru Broson's early childhood and then charters and disects his career, film by film, ending with Death Wish 2. Downing includes MANY quotes from Bronson himself throughout the book pertaining to his career strategy, his movie choices and his own opinons of the films in which he appeared(not always favorable!). Bronson was quoted as saying Red Sun and Rider on the Rain were his personal favorites.
Definately a must read for fans. This book gives a very clear picture of Bronson's calculated career strategy that eventually made him an International Superstar. Bronson did not just fall into acting, he 'targeted' it. Also included are eight pages of rare pictures from behind the scenes and from his personal life. Great job of researching by Mr. Downing, cosidering Bronson's 'tight-lipped' tendancies...
