The poster for Death Wish (the first one by all means!) is iconic. You left out one:

The point being is that Charles Bronson was in several big famous legendary pictures early in his career where he has a leaner face without the mustache and usually as a part of a group.
- “The Great Escape”
- “The Magnificent Seven”
- “The Dirty Dozen”
- “Once Upon A Time In The West”
All these made him a star but I think it was OUaTitW made him a break out star that proved he can handle a film as a solo star because he was in almost all of that film alone. But yet, you have no posters from those important films.
Besides, I think Bronson looked better and cooler with the leaner face and without the mustache!
And again with OUATITW (it is just easier to type it all in capital letters), it’s actual name is in Italian! It will get my vote hands down. Especially if has the gunfight at the beginning of the film in it too!
The following are all from the same film. You can probably guess which without looking at them.

And speaking of “all posters in a foreign language.”, the one you had used for “Hard Times” is in French. https://www.imdb.com/list/ls049944634...

I know it's practically the same picture, but image for Death Wish (1974) is a DVD cover rather then a poster. 

There are two main variants of the poster: black-and-white with sepia and one colored with blue and yellow. I love both, although first one is arguable more iconic, while second one is of personal preference to me, if for accidentally being of same colors as flag of Ukraine.

That is May because at that time most of the cities in America were switching to the yellow/orange sodium based streetlights for the side streets and park areas. Therefore, that poster looks more natural for night shot in a park in America at that time.

I noticed a typo in the intro and am also suggesting two other edits: (edits below in bold)

Charles Bronson was America's favorite tough guy for over three decades. Many a Movie Poster was graced with his chiseled distinct face. 

The typo was "is" instead of "his," which happens to me a lot, especially because my auto-correct seems to prefer it that way - and you know, what auto-correct says goes so often because it's so good at slipping things in their without us noticing. I have issues with auto-correct. : )

Good poll, btw, It reminds me of a cat I had who was so big (almost like a mountain lion) and so tough ('very protective of me and my other cat that he'd intimidate my 6'4" boyfriend) that my roommate gave him the nick-name of "Bronson." : )

Hahaha, lol. 

The "3" isn't that big of a deal but "Americas" still needs an apostrophe before the "s."

Geez, I'm supposed to know Spanish for a few reasons, including a few ancestors, but I'm going to have to look up "Alcamaciones." 'How embarrassing. : )
