Telefon/St. Ives (DBFE) (DVD) (WS) (Tough Guys Charles Bronson)
He toiled for years in the second-tier of movie casts. Then along came Death Wish, and Charles Bronson muscled into the top ranks of action stardom. He brings iron-willed resolve to the spy thriller TELEFON (Side A), directed by Dirty Harrys Don Siegel. Enemy agents have slipped into the U.S., programmed to carry out acts of Cold War sabotage when they are triggered by lines of a Robert Frost poem. Bronsons job: stop the would-be terrorists before its too late. The woods are lovely, dark…and deadly. The star plays a crime writer caught up in a web of crime in ST. IVES (Side B), the first of his nine films with director J. Lee Thompson. Jacqueline Bisset and John Houseman co-star in a corpse- and twist-filled mystery.
