Présentation de l'éditeur

Menacing Face Worth Millions: A Life of Charles Bronson is the first definitive biography of legendary screen actor Charles Bronson.

Charles Bronson was the silver screen legend who forever changed America’s – and the world’s – idea of the leading man’s looks: a poverty-stricken young man who became one of the most popular, highly-paid film stars of his day. No movie that Charles Bronson ever made can equal the reclusive life he led and the contradictions of his own hidden self. In this definitive retelling of Bronson’s life – the first fully documented biography of the star – Brian D’Ambrosio looks at the vigilante tough guy’s life and legacy and explores the events and issues that made him emblematic of his time.

An impressive job, but a few corrections...
As I knew most of the players who appear in the book, I found Brian D'Ambrosio`s bio of my former husband of 16 years, Charles Bronson, an interesting read, and I was impressed by the author's thoroughness. However, I would like to clear up a couple of misconceptions in the book that my own book, Charlie & Me: A Memoir, disputes. The author makes an assumption that because Charlie and I were not romantically demonstrative in public, that must have meant that our marriage was "utilitarian." That couldn't be further from the truth! Back in the 1940's, it was not appropriate to be demonstrative in public - only in private. But we did have a couple of slips. In my book I describe a date Charlie and I had at Victor's Italian restaurant in South Philadelphia when Charlie leaned over the table and planted a big kiss right on my mouth -- to everyone's delight at nearby tables. They applauded. I was both embarrassed and delighted. Also in his book the author assumes that for me, writing my memoir must have been a catharsis. That's not true, either. I'd already been through the pain of mourning the death of my marriage years earlier, and then I had to get on with my life and, eventually, write about it. My book is a tale of a love gone wrong and a life gone right. It's about what I was and who I became. -- Harriett Bronson, author of Charlie & Me: A Memoir (Timberlake Press)(Comment submitted for Harriett Bronson by the publisher of Charlie & Me)

Brian D'Ambrosio has done a masterful job in his written labor of love here, Menacing Face Worth Millions: A Life of Charles Bronson. The author admits a certain fascination with his subject matter, in a constructive way. He stated in an interview about his writing process that rather than just talking about writing this book he actually went to work at it. There is a certain productivity that comes from putting practice before potential, which the author has achieved.

Beginning with numerous original first-person interviews,and intertwining a solid literature search of available publicity and media depictions of Charles Bronson's career, this book delivers the goods. Covering Charles Bronson's entire professional career as well as his personal life details under one cover, the ambitious book concept comes in at 400 pages and left me wanting to read even more afterwards. I purchased my published copy through Lulu, but the Kindle version is notably cheaper on Amazon.

Pick this book if you like the movies that Charles Bronson appeared in, as well as for the television appearances he made. Buy this book if you want to read about the actor's personal life or of the Hollywood era that he came up in as an actor in post-WW2 America. More so, read this book if you are interested in how a gifted writer combines artistic license with a plethora of verified background material. The art of comprehensive writing may seem to go against the modern grain of truncated communication styles, but this book creates an immersive reading experience that the biographies written while Charles Bronson was alive could not hope to capture.

This book is suitable for medium and large size general reading collections. It is also appropriate for specialized collections such as drama, cinema, television, and all of the performing arts. This book may also be appropriate for biographical collections. I am excited to see more biographies of old Hollywood such as this beginning to appear. As a librarian, I feel that the time for this updated genre is due.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A complete account of an underrated actor! 8 septembre 2012

I grew up watching the films of Charles Bronson, primarily due to my father's intrigue with the actor my entire life. I didn't know much about his private life and reading this book opened my eyes to a very complex man. So many wonderful accounts of his filmography that it makes me want to watch those films again with new eyes. Through the life of such meager beginnings to the rise of stardom, this book captivated me. A must read for anyone looking for a gritty real account of a hollywood star. The parallel between Bronson's own life and his films is uncanny. After purchasing this book for my father, I want to impress that it is a wonderful true account for both the fan and non Bronson enthusiast alike. Well composed of details not found in other accounts of this actor. A must read!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Everything I always wanted to know about Bronson 19 juillet 2012

I originally purchased this book for a gift to give to my father. I fondly remember sitting in the living room as a child with my father, watching some of Bronson's, now classic, films, to pass the mid-afternoon hours.
I wasn't expecting to read the book myself, but the photograph of this familiar film star invoked a flood of nostalgic memories. So, as I thumbed through the text, I found myself more engrossed in this famous, yet, unfamiliar star.
The author was masterful at utilizing his journalistic fervor to present the biographical details of this American icon; and extract from research the artistic and cultural impact modern cinema, and movie stars make on a generation of movie fans.

I had read about Charles Bronson in a ton of articles and unless he was in a good mood, he was distant, rude, and always had a menacing air. He also seemed to be all those things even when he was in a good mood. While this book confirms all that, it also researched he may have exaggerated his terrible childhood, wasn't always the "crank" he expressed, and knew exactly what he was doing and why he did it. While staying clear of the hollywood destructive party life, rarely drinking and absolutely no drugs, he worked hard to build the life he wanted making intelligent decisions with well-expressed logical reasons along with maintaining a physique that was to die for. Really enjoyed this book!
