These last few years, some Bronson movies and TV episodes have resurfaced on IMDB, like "BATTLE ZONE", "TORPEDO ALLEY". The Man had bit parts in these films (but he was quite funny in "BATTLE ZONE"). He played a character named "Russell" in "OFF LIMITS", a Bob Hope comedy in 1953. Did anyone see it ? What part was it ? Another boxer ?

Hi Crego. I have not seen Off Limits. Wish I had. Have you seen "The Red Skelton Show" .... Bronson as Perky (1 episode, 1952) ... aka "The Red Skelton Hour" (USA: new title). He is in the episode titled "Fancy Footwork". It is available on a factory DVD by TIMELESS Media Group. It is called Red Skelton America's Clown Prince, Episode 3 on the disc. It is well worth having in your collection if you do not already have it. Nice wishes....Gary Willens/Los Angeles
I've seen "FANCY FOOTWORK". It's short, but funny, and a very young and muscular Bronson looks to enjoy himself, as an arrogant champ. At one moment, when he slaps (hard !) Skelton's face, with a floorcloth, Skelton can't help but laugh. Must have hurt !
