$19.98 SRP DVD

—–In 1958 a young Charles Bronson came to ABC-Television in the fast-paced action drama “Man With A Camera.” Bronson played Mike Kovac, a former WWII combat photographer now freelancing in New York City, who specialized in getting the photographs that other lensmen couldn’t. His assignments came from newspapers, insurance agencies, the police, and private individuals, all of whom wanted a filmed record of an event. His cases always lead to danger, usually involving a good-looking damsel in distress. Kovac’s police liaison was Lieutenant Donovan, well-played by James Flavin, who looked to the freelance cameraman for help with the cases the cops couldn’t handle. To the viewer’s delight, Kovac employed the latest photographic technology to solve a case, including a Minox III mini-camera fastened to his belt; fisheye and telephoto lenses; and various other cutting-edge technologies; even converting the trunk of his car into a portable darkroom where he could develop his negatives on the spot. Character actor Ludwig Stossel starred as Kovac’s immigrant father Anton, to whom Kovac frequently came for advice. Guest stars included: Angie Dickinson, Yvonne Craig, King Calder, Ruta Lee, Harry Dean Stanton, Joe di Reda, Gavin Macleod, Howard McNear, Sebastian Cabot, Norma Crane, Bill Erwin and Grant Williams. 2-disc set.
