Il Bruto is Dead

The French called Charles Bronson "Le Sacre Monstre" and the Italians knew him as "Il Bruto." He died Saturday at the age of 81 from pneumonia. In honor of one of the greatest of the Old School action stars, put on The Magnificent Seven, The Dirty Dozen, The Great Escape, Once Upon a Time in the West, Violent City, The Mechanic, Chato's Land, Breakout, Death Wish, Death Hunt (co-starring my other favorite tough guy, Lee Marvin), or my personal favorite, Mr. Majestyk. Watch one or watch 'em all because Bronson mattered.
