A Harley Roadster, a bedroll, a lonely stretch of highway: Jim Bronson (Michael Parks) is traveling where the road and the day take him, trying to make sense of things after the suicide of his close friend. He doesn't go far along a magnificent stretch of California's coastal Big Sur before he meets Temple Brooks (Bonnie Bedelia), a runway bride just as adrift as Jim is. Together, they'll ride that Harley all the way to New Orleans. Together, they might find what they're looking for. The pilot film for the same-titled 26-episode TV series, Then Came Bronson - seen here in an international version that has footage not seen in U.S. telecasts - came along in the free-wheeling era of Easy Rider. Hop on.
Here's one we totally missed! Two weeks ago the Warner Archive began selling the pilot telefilm for NBC's 1969 series Then Came Bronson, which is available to purchase now as a manufacture-on-demand DVD. The cost is $19.95 for 98 minutes, presented in full frame video and English mono audio. Cover art is below. Our thanks to longtime reader Bob Huggins for the heads-up on this overlooked entry!
