Bronson teamed with James Coburn in the ensemble casts of two other great films: "The Magnificent Seven," and "The Great Escape." Of all the films Bronson has made, "Hard Times" is by far the best, and probably the only truly "serious" film. Framed in the gritty reality of the Great Depression, with great background music --1930's string band--Bronson found the role of a lifetime. I rate this film an 8 out of 10.
