U.S. distributors Kino Lorber have revealed that they are planning to bring to Blu-ray director Richard Fleischer's (Violent Saturday, The Boston Strangler) crime drama Mr. Majestyk (1974), starring Charles Bronson, Linda Cristal, Al Lettieri, Lee Purcell and Jordan Rhodes. The release, which will be part of the distributors' new Studio Classics line, is expected to arrive on the U.S. market later this year.
Synopsis: Charles Bronson is Majestyk, an ex-con and Vietnam vet whose efforts to run a farm are thwarted by narrow-minded locals and corrupt cops. But when a Mafia hitman (Al Lettieri) destroys Majestyk's crop, the farmer's fuse is finally blown. With his rifle in hand and his girlfriend (Linda Cristal) at the wheel, he goes after the syndicate assassin. And from high-speed back-road chases to an explosive backwoods confrontation, mobster and maverick stalk each other: two of a kind, antagonists to the death.
