When I first saw this film in 1969, I bought a Sportster and hit the road that summer, then got drafted. The Bronson Bike and the character of Jim Bronson "Inspired us to ride" motorcycles. Read more about Jim Bronson and the Long Lonesome Highway at [@] and until then, you hang in there!

For those of us who were around during the late 70's, this is a great connection with our past. For me this movie helped define who I would like to be. This version, (European version) includes some nice additional scenes that the US would not accept then or now. While the movie is not up to par with great movies of the time, you must remember it was a made for TV movie. It has a cult like following and many motorcycle enthusiasts have wanted for years for it to be released. The quality was good and glad to have the memories back.

      Comments about Then Came Bronson (1969 TV M) (MOD):

      Then Came Bronson was right for the time. The end of the 1960's with a lot of hope gone, three major figures assassinated, the War in Vietnam, unrest in the cities and country as a matter of fact. Bronson was looking for something lost, something from the decade that started with the youngest President in history and a new hope for America. He was the kindred spirit that a lot of us growing up then wanted to be. I WISH someone high up in the Warner Brothers food chain will make the right decision and offer the entire set of episodes from the 1969-70 season. The popular co-stars featured in every episode are enough reason for their introduction. By the way, I just about completed a restoration on a 1967 XLCH Sportster, very similar to the Bronson 1969 XLH version with an XLCH Kick Starter pedal!

          This movie was shown on TV in March of 1969 and I loved it , a friend gave me a ride on his Sportster and it was amazing and fast ,It inspired me to buy my own Harley Davidson SPORSTER in 1972 the first year of the 1000cc right after I returned home from Vietnam , Bronson was riding a SPORSTER !!! And I still own a 1973 Sportster today , This movie was made in the late 60's not 70's as some reviewers were saying , it was a wonderful time except for all of the violence happening in the world then , a lot more than today !!!

          I'm 61 and I remember this as if it was last night. It inspired me to leave home at 22. I rode to Hollywood, Ca. from Boston. In 1975 on a bike and nothing but time youth and dreams this was my modivation. Bring it back and get me in this movie...

            excellent delivery time....good product...inspired me to get my own. I bought my Sporty new in 1989 almost 20 yrs after the show was on tv. I loved the movie, the series and Michael Parks. I also have a collection of his music. I absolutely love my movie and the collector series.

              Comments about Then Came Bronson (1969 TV M) (MOD):

              I was starting Jr. High when this movie came out. I think it helped reignite a motorcycle craze. I haven't seen this movie since 1969. It was fun to watch it and see several scenes I had forgotten. The DVD has nudity, which wasn't on the TV version I saw when I was a kid. For that reason, I checked the Adult Viewers box. Really good movie.

                Why, oh why, would Warner not release the two season series on DVD? It would sell, no question about it.

                It reinforces dreams of cross country motorcycle touring & camping. As advertised, it is made from the best-quality video master currently available that is not remastered or restored. The sound & brightness varies slightly once or twice, but it is almost exactly as I remembered it and I enjoy it very much.

                  The theme song was NOT "Going down that long lonesome Highway" like the series it was better. Try and find out how many times the motorcycle changes, like the engine, sissy bar and such.
