Charles was raised in Ehrenfeld by a Lithuanian-American mother along with his fourteen siblings. The first person in his family to graduate high school, Charles worked in mines to provide for himself and his family as his father died when he was only ten years old. After completing his high school education, he enlisted at US Army Air Force and served as a gunner in the Pacific during the World War II, awarded a Purple Heart after being wounded.

After the war, Charles worked in various jobs before starting his career as an actor, as he joined theatres in Pennsylvania. He then moved to Hollywood, and debuted with a small and uncredited role in the movie “You’re In The Navy Now” in 1951, but then went on to perform in several successful movies during his career. Some of the notable movies that Charles has been a part of include “Pat And Mike”, “My Six Convicts”, “Apache”, “Pinto”, “Jubal”, “The Great Escape” and several others. Needless to say, all of these movies were very significant in making Charles a multi-millionaire actor as of his death.

Other of his most noted movies include “The Mechanic”, “Breakheart Pass”, “From Noon Till Three”, “Murphy’s Law”, “Assassination” and “Family of Cops” series among many others. He has also had parts in several dramas including “Raid on Entebbe”, “Borderline”, “Caboblanco” and more. During his career spanning almost 100 films, Charles worked with highly regarded directors like George Cukor, Robert Aldrich, Roger Corman, Vincente Minnelli and others,. Obviously, all of these projects and personalities had a great hand in making Charles a legendary actor of Hollywood, and securing his net worth.

As for his personal life, Charles was married three times, firstly in 1949 to Harriet Tendler who became the mother of Charles’s two children before they divorced in 1965. His second marriage was with British actress Jill Ireland in 1968 until her death from breast cancer in 1990: they had two children. Charles’s third marriage was with Kim Weeks, and the couple was married for only five years as Charles died in 2003 of Alzheimer’s disease and pneumonia.

As of now, Charles rests in Brownsville Cemetery in West Windsor, Vermont while he is survived by his four children and his movies.

1I don't have any friends, and I don't want any friends. My children are my friends.
2[on his character in Death Wish (1974)] He's an average guy, an average New Yorker. In wartime, he would be a conscientious objector. His whole approach to life is gentle, and he has raised his daughter that way. Now he has second thoughts, and he becomes a killer.
3One of the ironies is that I made my breakthrough in movies shot in Europe that the Japanese thought were American movies and that the Americans thought were foreign.
4I supply a presence. There are never any long dialogue scenes to establish a character. He has to be completely established at the beginning of the movie, and ready to work. Now on this picture, Mr. Majestyk, there's something I haven't done for a while - acting. It has that, too, besides the action.
5I had a very bad experience on the plane in from California yesterday. There was a man on the plane, sitting across from me, and they were showing an old Greer Garson movie. He said, 'Hey, why aren't you in that?' The picture was made before I even became an actor. I said, 'Why aren't you?' I think I made him understand how stupid his question was. When I'm in public, I even try to hide. I keep as quiet as possible so that I'm not noticed. Not that I hide behind doorways or anything ridiculous like that, but I hide by not making waves. I also try to make myself seem as unapproachable as possible.
6It seemed like an easy way to make money. A friend took me to a play, and I thought I might as well try it myself. I had nothing to lose. I hung around New York and did a little stock-company stuff. I wasn't really sure at that time if l even wanted to be an actor. I got no encouragement. I was living in my own mind, generating my own adrenaline. Nobody took any notice of me. I was in plays I don't even remember. Nobody remembers. I was in something by Moliere - I don't even know what it was called. I have no interest in the stage anymore. From an audience point of view, it's old-fashioned. The position I've been in for the last eight years, I have to think that way. I can't think of theater acting for one segment of the population in just one city. That's an inefficient way of reaching people.
7I never talk about the philosophy of a picture. Winner is an intelligent man, and I like him. But I don't ever talk to him about the philosophy of a picture. It has never come up. And I wouldn't talk about it to you. I don't expound. I don't like to over talk a thing. Because I'm entertained more by my own thoughts than by the thoughts of others. I don't mind answering questions. But in an exchange of conversation, I wind up being a pair of ears.
8When I was a kid I was always drawing things. I'd get butcher paper or grocery bags and draw on them. And at school I was the one who got to draw on the windows with soap. Turkeys for Thanksgiving, that kind of thing. It seemed I just knew how to draw I could draw anything in one continuous line without lifting the crayon from the paper. I had a show of my stuff in Beverly Hills and it sold out in two weeks - and it wasn't because my name was Charles Bronson, because I signed them Buchinsky.
9[on why he was cast in You're in the Navy Now (1951)] I got the job because I could belch on cue.
10Stripping naked is not entertainment. It's for voyeurs and I'm damned sure I'm not going to feed their imaginations and let them get their licks by seeing me totally nude.
11[explaining his enduring popularity] Audiences like to see the bad guys get their comeuppance.
12[on wife Jill Ireland's terminal illness] When you love someone you feel their pain. It's why some husbands go through morning sickness when their wives are pregnant. But to ever talk about it is difficult. I wouldn't tell Jill how I felt. I behaved in such a way that was opposite to how I felt. I must have seemed strong to her. I didn't want to bring her down. It was like keeping the stiff upper lip, of being British about it. Of course, she understood that. The fear really hits you. That's what you feel first. And then it's the anger and frustration. Part of the problem is how little we understand about the ultimate betrayal of the body when it rebels against itself. You always worry about charlatans. We found that specialists did not know as much as we thought. So, you think maybe there are other answers. There are not but if you believe something will help you it probably will: it will help, not cure. What kind of man would I have been if I had not been there to help her? I felt along with her--not the physical pain, of course, but all her mental anguish. You can't be detached. She needed to have someone who understood what was happening in her mind. That was what I was for.
13I don't have friends, I have thousands of acquaintances. No friends. I figured I had a wife and children. They took up all the personal time I had. My children are my friends. My wife was my friend. We were opposite but I figured it made for a better relationship that way. One of the difficult parts of being a public person married to someone who was seriously ill is that people asked, "So, how's your wife?", I found it difficult. They were strangers.
14[1977 comment on Robert Aldrich] A very good director. Beyond that, he has one fault: he is inflexible. He's horrified if you give him ideas; he only appreciates his own. He wants to use his own brain for everything. That's his greatest fault. If he wasn't so inflexible he would be very great. He refuses to give in. Well, it's impossible for one man to know everything.
15Nobody stays on top forever. Nobody!
16I am not a fan of myself.
17[in 1971] Maybe I'm too masculine. Casting directors cast in their own, or an idealized image. Maybe I don't look like anybody's ideal.
18I don't look like someone who leans on a mantelpiece with a cocktail in my hand, you know. I look like the kind of guy who has a bottle of beer in my hand.
19Someday I'd like a part where I can lean my elbow against a mantlepiece and have a cocktail.
20Acting is the easiest thing I've done, I guess that's why I'm stuck with it.
21I guess I look like a rock quarry that someone has dynamited.
1Nickname 'graniteface'.
2Was once considered starring in a film to be directed by sam peckinpah (in the latter part of his career) but he refused. his reason being "I ain't working with no drunk".
3Was a successful artist and painter. Bronson once had an "anonymous" showing of his artwork at a gallery in California (under his birth name of Buchinsky), and every piece of art sold within two weeks.
4Although born in Pennsylvania, Bronson grew up speaking Russian and Lithuanian as his first language (his father was an immigrant, and his mother was the daughter of immigrants). He did not become truly fluent in English until he served in the military during World War II.
5Robert Mitchum did not get along with Bronson when they filmed Villa Rides (1968). He later said he could not understand why Bronson was famous.
6Bronson once told Roger Ebert that getting drafted into World War II was one of the best things that happened to him. For the first time in his life he was well fed and well dressed, and it afforded him the opportunity to improve his English.
7Was one of the first big stars to notice the emerging "new media" that was arriving -- video and laserdisc -- and immediately had a clause put in all his contracts that sales from these new formats should be included in his royalties.
8He was seriously considered for the role of General Stanislaw Sosabowski in A Bridge Too Far (1977), which was directed by his The Great Escape (1963) co-star Richard Attenborough. However, Gene Hackman was eventually cast.
9Started acting in his mid-twenties.
10Awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Wednesday, December 10, 1980. Bronson and wife Jill Ireland attended the ceremony.
11Left an estate worth $48 million including an $8 million house in Malibu as well as a $4.8 million beach house and a ranch in Vermont.
12Stepfather of Valentine McCallum.
13Bill Murray said he based his character in Lost in Translation (2003) on Bronson.
14Tennessee Williams wanted him to play the general in his play "The Red Devil Battery Sign" in 1975, but he wasn't interested.
15Biography in: "The Scribner Encyclopedia of American Lives". Volume 7, 2003-2005, pages 48-50. Farmington Hills, MI: Thomson Gale, 2007.
16He was considered for Gene Hackman's Oscar-winning role in The French Connection (1971).
17Tested and read for Christopher Reeve's role in Superman (1978).
18He was considered for the role of Snake Plissken in Escape from New York (1981), but director John Carpenter felt Bronson was too old and too tough, and cast Kurt Russell instead.
19Growing up without much money for newer clothes, as a boy he often wore his older sister's hand-me-downs.
20He and wife Jill Ireland adopted Katrina Holden Bronson after her mother Hilary Holden died in 1983.
21Japanese manga artist Buronson, famed for his "Fist of the Northstar" manga, took the name in honor of Bronson (his real name is Yoshiyuki Okamura) and sports a similar mustache.
22Retired from acting after undergoing hip replacement surgery in 1998.
23Diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in 2000 after suffering ill health for the previous two years.
24In the '90s a lady whom he'd never met left him her estate worth well over a million dollars. She was a big fan of his. Her family sued and he ended up settling with them out of court.
25Made six films with director Michael Winner: Chato's Land (1972), The Mechanic (1972), The Stone Killer (1973), Death Wish (1974), Death Wish II (1982) and Death Wish 3 (1985).
26His parents were from Lithuania, where his father was a coal miner, and he grew up in a western Pennsylvania coal-mining town. Like all the men in his family he worked in the mines, but hated it and used a variety of means to escape it (including the military and, eventually, acting). His expertise with tunneling and working underground turned out to be quite helpful when making The Great Escape (1963) in the role of "Tunnel King" Velinski. However, even though the "tunnel" he was working in was a cutaway set, he could only stay in it for a few minutes at a time before he had to get up and leave. As a boy working in the mines, he was caught in a cave-in and almost died before he was finally rescued. Ever since that time he had had a deathly fear of enclosed spaces.
27In the latter part of his career, he worked predominantly with The Guns of Navarone (1961) director J. Lee Thompson. They made nine films together in just over a decade between 1977 and 1989: 10 to Midnight (1983), Caboblanco (1980), Death Wish 4: The Crackdown (1987), The Evil That Men Do (1984), Kinjite: Forbidden Subjects (1989), Messenger of Death (1988), Murphy's Law (1986), St. Ives (1976) and The White Buffalo (1977).
28Capable of essaying a variety of types, from Russian to American Indian, from homicidal villain to tight-lipped hero, Bronson suddenly became a star at the age of 50. Following the success of Death Wish (1974) he repeated, with little variation, his role as a vengeful urban vigilante.
29Advertised Mandom hair oil.
30He was very active in raising funds for the John Wayne Cancer Institute.
31The term "Charles Bronson" is frequently uttered in Reservoir Dogs (1992) in reference to a hard-man.
32Sergio Leone once called him "the greatest actor I ever worked with". Leone had wanted Bronson for all three of what became known as the "Man with No Name" trilogy, but Bronson turned him down each time.
33The voice of the sarcastic store clerk in The Simpsons (1989) is based on him.
34Had hip replacement surgery in August 1998.
35Owned homes in Europe, including Lithuania and Greece.
36Spoke fluent Russian, Lithuanian and Greek.
37Was introduced to his second wife, Jill Ireland, by her then-husband David McCallum during the filming of The Great Escape (1963).
38His stepson, Jason McCallum Bronson, the adoptive son of David McCallum and Jill Ireland, died of an accidental drug overdose in 1989.
39With Bronson's death on August 30, 2003, Robert Vaughn became the last surviving actor to have played one of the title characters in The Magnificent Seven (1960). Vaughn died on November 11, 2016 at the age of 83.
40Appeared with Steve McQueen and James Coburn in two films, both of which were directed by John Sturges: The Magnificent Seven (1960) and The Great Escape (1963).
41Called West Windsor, Vermont his home for more than three decades (Bronson Farm), and was buried in nearby Brownsville Cemetery, near the foot of Mt. Ascutney.
42Responding to critics' complaints, he said: "We don't make movies for critics, since they don't pay to see them anyhow."
43His father died when he was 10, and at 16 he followed his brothers into the mines to support the family. He was paid $1 per ton of coal and volunteered for perilous jobs because the pay was better.
44In 1963 Sergio Leone asked him to star in his western A Fistful of Dollars (1964) (A Fistful of Dollars). Bronson turned the role down, so Leone asked Clint Eastwood.
45He grew privately frustrated by the declining quality and range of roles over his career, being pigeonholed as a violent vigilante after the commercial success of Death Wish (1974). His own favorite of his "vigilante" movies was Once Upon a Time in the West (1968) (aka Once Upon a Time in the West).
46Was by all accounts a very quiet and introspective collaborator, often sitting in a corner for much of a shoot and listening to a director's instructions and not saying a word until cameras were rolling. Don Siegel, who directed him in Telefon (1977), and Tom Gries, who directed him in Breakheart Pass (1975), both commented on how surprised they were to discover how thoroughly and completely prepared Bronson was when he came to work, as it didn't seem to fit his "laid-back", taciturn image.
47John Huston once summed him up as "a grenade with the pin pulled".
48"I am not a Casper Milquetoast," Bronson told The Washington Post in 1985, recalling the time he was visiting Rome and felt someone stick a gun in his side. "A guy in broken English asked me for money. I said, 'You give ME money.' He turned around and walked away."
49Was drafted into the army in 1943 and assigned to the Air Corps. At first he was a truck driver, but was later trained as a bomber tail gunner and assigned to a B-29. He flew 25 missions and received, among other decorations, a Purple Heart for wounds incurred in battle.
50In 1954 on the Mexican set of Vera Cruz (1954), he and fellow cast member Ernest Borgnine--who were playing American gunfighters involved in the Mexican fight against the French--had some spare time on their hands and decided to go to a nearby town for cigarettes. They saddled up in costume, sidearms and all, and began riding to town. On the way they were spotted by a truck full of Mexican "federales"--national police--who mistook them for bandits and held them at gunpoint until their identities could be verified.
51In 1949 he moved to California, where he signed up for acting lessons at the Pasadena Playhouse
52Dick Van Dyke received a lemon cake every Christmas from Bronson, who lived nearby in Malibu for 16 years.
53Changed his stage name in the early 1950s in the midst of the McCarthy "Red Scare" at the suggestion of his agent, who was fearful that his last name (Buchinsky) would damage his career.
54Spoofed in an episode of The Simpsons (1989) in which the Simpson family mistakenly travels to Bronson, Missouri, instead of Branson. In Bronson, such lines of dialogue as these are spoken by its citizens: "No dice.", "This ain't ovah."
55The name Bronson is said to be taken from the "Bronson Gate" at Paramount Studios, at the north end of Bronson Avenue.
56Perhaps the biggest late bloomer in Hollywood history, he did not get the marquee treatment he deserved until his late 40s. He was already 53 when Death Wish (1974) premiered.
57He had two children with his first wife, Tony and Suzanne. He then married Jill Ireland, who had two sons with her first husband, David McCallum. One adopted son (Jason) died of an accidental drug overdose in 1989. He and Ireland had a daughter named Zuleika.
58Shared a room with Jack Klugman in a New York boarding house in the 1940s.
