EHRENFELD, Pa. (AP) — The tiny hometown of movie tough guy Charles Bronson might honor the late actor with a historical marker and a renamed street. Then again, it might not.

Many residents of the borough of 234 persons say Mr. Bronson — born Charles Buchinsky on Nov. 3, 1921 — rarely visited or looked up childhood friends.

“Someone asked for permission to have a sign put up at the entrance of town about a year ago, and borough council voted against it,” said council President Albert Keller. “They said Charlie didn’t do a damn thing for this town.”

Charles Vizzini of nearby Ebensburg, outside of Pittsburgh, wants to honor Bronson with a $1,500 marker.
