Charlie Bronson has spent 28 of the last 30 years in solitary confinement. He has been locked in dungeons, in iron boxes concreted into the middle of cells and, famously, in a cage. When he is unlocked, up to 12 prison officers - sometimes in riot gear and with dogs - are standing by. Yet this is a man of great warmth and humour who has never killed anyone and has often dealt with his gruelling life with humour - during a siege in 1993 he demanded an inflatable doll and a cup of tea. Now his story is being turned into a Hollywood film. Now in this amazing new edition of his best selling autobiography, Charlie reveals the truth about his extraordinary life behind bars.

You are formally invited to take a journey with some truly ordinary people. People who simply gave God an opportunity. We headed down many highways and byways. To us, each road was the Bronson Highway. Each mission was the Bronson Project. From 2010 to 2018, we accomplished Bronson Projects 1–X. Jesus said, "The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few." We found out that not only was our labor not in vain but that some rewards are at times indescribable!

This work covers Bronson’s entire output in film and on television, and includes many film stills and photographs. Alphabetical entries list film or episode, complete cast and credits, and year of release. Accompanying each entry’s plot synopsis and discussion is a survey of the critical responses to the work. The great Charles Laughton once said Bronson “has the strongest face in the business, and he is also one of its best actors.” Pretty high praise for an actor who, though loved by fans worldwide, has been consistently underestimated by critics. Bronson’s career has spanned five decades, from such television appearances in The Fugitive, Rawhide, Bonanza and Have Gun, Will Travel as well as the telemovie A Family of Cops (1995) and its two sequels. He will long be remembered for his role as urban vigilante Paul Kersey in the Death Wish films. Bronson is one of the most enigmatic, and also most recognizable, of all film stars.
