A while back, reader Cameron from Slovenia suggested we profile some Jewish "tough guys". One of his suggestions was Yul Brynner. He also asked us to look into Bronson.
We did, found out he wasn't Jewish at all, and sat on it. With so many suggestions coming in on a daily basis, it's hard to profile someone like that without a tangible Jewish rumor. This is until a few weeks ago, when reader Bernard from Australia pointed us to this article. (It's an article written by a Muslim that is complimentary of Jews! See, we all can get along.)
That article lists many prominent Jews, but makes a couple of mistakes, including Bronson (Sandra Bullock is the other obvious one). So now we had our rumor.
And this is how Death Wish VI: This Time It's Rabbinical was born.
