He earned one dollar for each ton of coal that he mined.[edit]

This quote comes from the Roger Ebert interview http://www.rogerebert.com/interviews/charles-bronson-its-just-that-i-dont-like-to-talk-very-much

(Bronson himself makes the assertion, though in context it could be hyperbolic or anecdotal and not strictly factual - the quote in the article could be altered to "In an interview, Bronson stated that...") — Preceding unsigned comment added by 73.135.50.75 (talk) 22:41, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

"When I worked, the rate was a dollar a ton. You spent one whole day preparing so you could spend the next day getting it out. The miners felt bound together; they knew how much they could get out, how much they could do. And they worked. With the new machines, it's easier. Not more pleasant, but easier. But in those days, that was pure work. It wasn't a man on a dock with a forklift or any of that bullshit. It was pure work." — Preceding unsigned comment added by 73.135.50.75 (talk) 22:36, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

I am not certain, but if you flew on any B type bomber in World War II, you had to have the rank of sergeant or higher to do so.

Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done: as you have not requested a specific change in the form "Please replace XXX with YYY" or "Please add ZZZ between PPP and QQQ".
More importantly, you have not cited reliable sources to back up your request, without which no information should be added to, or changed in, any article. - Arjayay (talk) 16:48, 24 September 2015 (UTC)

Bronson War Service Incorrect[edit]

Charles Bronson's bio is incorrect. He did not serve as a gunner on a bomber in WWII. He served stateside, in the U.S. Army. He was in A noncombat job. For verification, read this excerpt below from the New York Times article that was Bronson's news obituary: "In 1943, he was drafted into the Army. Years later, after he established himself as an actor, his press releases would say he had been a tail gunner during World War II. But one reporter found that Mr. Bronson was assigned to the 760th Mess Squadron in Kingman, Ariz., and that he drove a delivery truck during the war." Please correct the Bronson entry in Wikipedia to fix the misconception that he saw combat during the war -- he did not. [1]

Please consider that Charles Bronson' father was born in Polish  town of Druskienniki in occupied by  Russia Polish -Lithuanian state from which later , after IWW , emerged two independent states . I doubt that he did not know Polish language and had no connection with Poland . Information that he spoke Lithuanian and Russian only are not right . He is recognized in Poland as being of Polish origin actor .
