"Man With A Camera" - Charles Bronson
I've not only 'watched' the series...but watched it 'live in it's time slots'. when I was 25 years old...a young Professional Photographer myself.

Charles Bronson was most-impressive in the series. He used 35-mm film cameras and Flash Bulbs, long before Electronic Flash cameras became mainstream to the public..Polaroid Cameras was not yet invented.

The show sponsors were Sylvania 'Blue Dot'Flashbulbs and Kodak Films which EVERYONE used.

The 'Blue Dot' was Sylvania's Trademark and when the 'dot' on the flashbulb was the color-blue...you knew you had a good bulb that was guaranteed to flash. Other manufacturer bulbs sometimes failed to flash because they were 'defective', thus losing a possible great photo at cost of the film exposure and flashbulb.

The film image is captured in a split second for posterity. If you missed the shot...it was gone forever. 'Man With A Camera' got his 'shots' every time.

Every photographer developed film and made prints in a darkroom or makeshift one...was exciting times in Photography.

Charlie was the updated 'Weegee' (Live Free-Lance crime photographer in the 40's and 50's who used a 4x5 Press Camera and Flashbulkbs and covered New York City at night, and became an icon by doing so).

Charles Bronson became a Movie Icon as result of this Great Photography series, which lead him to become the Superstar he was.

This series filmed in Black & White is Historically accurate and exciting to everyone who is photography crafted. A real true-blue historical masterpiece of nostalgia.

If you get the opportunity to watch it...please do...you'll be glad you did...seeing a Superhero in the making...Take care.
