Actor Charles Bronson’s First Wife Pens Non-Bitter Celebrity Memoir

Los Angeles, CA – March 18, 2011 – In a publishing environment where celebrity tell-all and tell-on books seem to flourish, Charlie & Me, a memoir by the late movie icon’s first wife, Harriett Bronson, reads more like a Hollywood love story than a revenge tale. The book details the couple’s sixteen-year marriage and how their seemingly solid union, that produced two children, disintegrated after Charlie fell under the spell – and into the bed – of the also-married English actress, Jill Ireland. Despite the set-up for what could have been a bitter book, this is no CHARLIE DEAREST. Bronson fans will learn that while their idol had feet of clay, he was also a loving father, a talented painter, and an astute business man with a solid work ethic.

Born Harriett Tendler, she was an 18-year-old virgin when she met the 26-year-old Charlie Buchinsky at a Philadelphia acting school in 1947. Two years later, with the grudging consent of her father, a successful, Jewish dairy farmer, she wed the Catholic Lithuanian and former coal miner; supporting them both while Charlie pursued their acting dream. On their first date, he had four cents in his pocket – and went on, now as Charles Bronson, to become one of the highest paid actors in the country. In 1975, he was considered the #1 box office draw in the world with such blockbusters as THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN, THE DIRTY DOZEN, THE GREAT ESCAPE and DEATH WISH. He died in 2003.

Harriett’s journey parallels that of so many women, not because she was married to a famous man and had all the trappings, but because somewhere along the way she lost herself. This story also shows how money and success can exert a corrupting and pervasive influence upon marriage and family. Women, especially, will identify with her dilemma in discovering the philandering ways of an errant spouse. They will hopefully learn from her experience of walking through the pain, surviving it, and re-discovering herself to become someone in her own right – a fairly successful radio interviewer and talk show host in Los Angeles.
