Anybody remember him in Chato's Land?[edit]

Maybe the greatest Vietnam era parable I ever saw. Anybody remember?

Chato's Land was ok but how about "Machine-Gun Kelly" directed by Corman in 1958. That was definitely his first great role on big screen. the thing is it seems to be lost or something, it's still not on DVD.

Filmography[edit]

I have no idea how to edit this piece, but I just finished watching "Vera Cruz", a 1954 film starring Gary Cooper and Burt Lancaster. Bronson had a speaking role under the name Buchinsky, with lines in two or three scenes; not a major role, but enough to get him into a list of featured players numbering about ten. The close ups were few, but the voice unmistakable. If Wikipedia is correct, this is one of his earliest film roles, and not mentioned in this piece.71.11.192.122 (talk) 21:56, 28 November 2013 (UTC)

Clarification of Language/Education[edit]

The article says that he graduated high school but also states that he did not learn English until his teens. If the needed biographical information exists can someone elaborate on this? Did he live in an all Lithuanian/Russian community and not need English? What kind of primary education did he get without speaking English? Perhaps the late age of learning English is not true?

Clean-up needed[edit]

Some citations are broken or have problem and others do not support the information the citation is associated with. This is probably not a complete list.

  1. The citations (#11 and #12) for the claim that he did not speak English until a teen do not mention this fact, but citation #16 (military.com) does. I still suspect this is a legend but I have added a separate "talk" section this.
  2. Citation #5 links to a page which no longer exists.
  3. Citation #9 links to a page which no longer exists.
  4. Citation #14 links to the general WP page on Ripley's Believe it or Not, rather than anything that deals with the line that is cited. Is this acceptable?
  5. Citations #22 and #23 link to the WP page about Moscow, among other things. What is the point?
  6. Some citations seems to contain the same article as others, as if a reprintings of a common source.
