“Rags to Riches” Actor Charles Bronson Still Generating the Big Bucks After Death

In a surprise lawsuit just announced in The Daily Mail Online in the U.K., the Bronson family is suing four Hollywood studios for what the article says is “hundreds of millions of dollars,” mostly for unpaid royalties on home video revenues.

Jan. 19, 2013 - PRLog -- When Charlie Buchinsky, today known as the iconic actor Charles Bronson, went out on his very first date with his future wife, Harriett Tendler, he had four cents to his name. He spread the pennies out on the palm of his hand and told her: “That’s all I got until payday.” She married him anyway.

Harriett Bronson describes the couple's early days of financial struggle in her memoir, Charlie & Me (Timberlake Press, 2011), a finalist in the 2011 Global eBook Awards.  After the newlyweds moved to California in 1949, Charlie was “discovered” at the Pasadena Playhouse, got parts in movies, and went on to become one of the highest paid actors in the world. His fame grew to international proportions and the money kept rolling in. When he died in 2003, he was many times a millionaire.  
While there’s no predicting the outcome of this lawsuit, Charles Bronson’s financial successes continues even after death. He’s a gift that keeps on earning and he has made a lot of people very rich. Anyone looking back on that first date with first wife Harriett Bronson and seeing those four pennies in Charlie’s palm has got to admit that even in Hollywood, it’s quite a leap.
Charlie & Me by Harriett Bronson is available on Amazon.com, Kindle and Barnes and Noble.com. ISBN: 9780982884706. 216 PAGES. For more information contact Sylvia Cary, President, Timberlake Press at SylviaCary@gmail.com. www.TimberlakePress.com
