Daily One Inch Button Rerun - Charles Bronson

Note: For the rest of the month of August, we are going to run classic buttons every weekday except for Thursdays. We are working on a new website that will allow you to see all of the buttons at once on a nice looking page. Whee!

He came from the most humble of backgrounds - he was one of many children, a father from Lithuania and a family that was so destitute that they struggled just to get by. Charles Bronson, it is said, went to Hollywood not because acting seemed glamorous but because he thought it could pay the bills.

Charles changed his given surname to Bronson to appear more American - important in those times of very strict anti-Communist thought. He went from being pretty well known around Europe to starring in the Death Wish series of movies, inspiring people to take up arms and fight their own vigilante battles. He was a great man, and he shall be missed. Wear him on your coat with pride.
