    Hard Times (1975) - Arkin Brothers #106

    Hard Times (1975) - Arkin Brothers #106

    "Hard Times" is the ultimate feel-good movie for anyone looking for a little violence and illegal street fighting in their life. Charles Bronson stars as a drifter who discovers his true calling as a brawler in Depression-era New Orleans. Along the way, he meets the charming and slightly terrifying James Coburn, who runs the underground fighting circuit like a boss. It's a heartwarming tale of a man finding his place in the world, one punch at a time. And don't worry, it probably has a happy ending... or at least, we hope it does.
