St. Ives is a 1976 American action film directed by J. Lee Thompson and starring Charles Bronson.

Plot summary[edit]

Abner Procane hires Raymond St. Ives, a crime reporter and ex-policeman, to return five ledgers stolen from his safe.

St. Ives becomes embroiled in the task and the deaths of those involved in the theft. The ledgers are eventually returned minus four pages, and St. Ives is drawn into robbery to try and right the situation.

Cast[edit]

Bronson and Thompson[edit]

This was the first of many collaborations for Charles Bronson and J. Lee Thompson. After this film, they worked on other action films, including a few that had very dark themes. They include: The White Buffalo, Caboblanco, 10 to Midnight, Murphy's Law, The Evil That Men Do, Death Wish 4: The Crackdown, Messenger of Death and Kinjite: Forbidden Subjects.

The movie is also notable for early big screen cameos by Jeff Goldblum (The Fly, Jurassic Park), and Robert Englund (of Freddie Kruger fame). Goldblum was reprising his role of the maniacal street punk he had first adopted in Death Wish.
