Nice Site,
I went to school with Michael in Ione California. He was Harry Parks then. I graduated from Ione Union High School in 1956 with his sister Carole. He was a couple of years behind me in school and got married when he was 16 and left school. The next thing we heard about him was that he was in the movies. He played lots of sports and was popular in school but never would have guessed he would become an actor. I have year book photos of him on my flickr website.

Looking forward to seeing more on this site.

I have always loved Michael's music and character acting.

I really enjoyed looking at those early photos of Michael Thanks for putting the link on here.

Wow, re-watching the video clips really reminds one what a very versatile actor Michael is. Love the gentle side and how he can speak volumes with those beautiful eyes.

Have been following Michael his entire career. Love his acting, and enjoy his voice and arrangements of his recordings. How can I find any available recordings?

He does have a phenomenal screen presence. He's able to fill silent pauses with realistic nuances of the personality and mood he's portraying. His timing and delivery are perfection. And for his tough-guy roles, I've never heard an actor curse as creatively as Parks on screen.

Awesome site! Thanks so much. I especially love the song section! I'll definately be back soon!

It would be great to see a remake of "Then Came Bronson". There's never been a series quite like it since then. If there was a remake, Michael Parks should be in it also.

Thanks for the fan site. I've never searched out info on an actor before, but Parks is such an incredible talent and none of my friends know who he is. I'd take Parks over Eastwood any day!

The surest way of spoiling a pleasure is to start examining your satisfaction.

What a man, they don't make them like him anymore, I've loved him since I was a young girl, watched all his shows, bought all his music, I'm glad he's still active and awesome. I wish I could meet him. He's such an incredible actor.

04/27/2011 4:50pm

What young girl didn't have a crush on Michael Parks back then? And he is still very handsome and charismatic in his later years. He never got the recognition he deserved. I've always wondered if he was as nice as he was talented -or another Hollywood jerk...who knows...well either way, he's a great actor. Glad he's still around.

09/26/2011 7:31pm

Great site for a great actor. Thanks. I'll be back to visit more.

Awesome actor and awesome site. Thanks! Will be back to look at more.

11/28/2011 4:54pm

To Debbie,
Thanks for visiting MP4U.
"Reward" took a long time to find. We haven't looked lately but the one we found (which is not a great copy) took about 2 years to locate and I think we just got lucky.
Unfortunately, we cannot sell anything here. It's just a fan site to enjoy. However, there are two clips of "Reward" on video page 13 under 1980:
We are still looking for several of Michael's TV appearances ourselves.
Since we're always searching for MP stuff, If you send us your email address to: and what movies you're looking for (including Reward) - when/if and where we find them, we'll email you.
In case you don't know, here's a list of his movies and TV roles:
If you find any that we don't have clips of, please let us know as well.
Thank you,

I've been watching Michael Parks, the actor, on TV since the 1980s especially on The Colbys. If I was Katharine Ross, I would have thrown Charlton Heston over for Michael Parks any day of the week and then some! Recently I was blown away to discover his incredible talent as a singer. It just proves how greatly he excelled as an actor that I never pictured him as something more than that. Keep posting more videos of him! If you could find a clip from his appearance on Murder She Wrote that would be great!

02/25/2012 8:49am

We do have a couple short clips from "Murder She Wrote". We hope to post in the next few wks.

03/11/2013 5:28pm

I recently discovered a couple of his old albums on iTunes. Much better sound now than my 35+ year old 70's 8-tracks.

Dear Sam, I've been checking your website every so often for a clip of Michael Parks' appearance on Murder She, Wrote. Its been more than a few weeks. Have you run into licensing or copyright issues regarding these clips? Please let me know. Thanks.

10/11/2012 6:37pm

This is a man I would very much want to hear and see much more often. I think he is sorely not acknowledged enough. I have admired him since I saw him on Here Comes Bronson.

01/14/2013 12:51am

This is a fantastic site!!! I've spent the last several hrs here & will be back.

01/14/2013 12:58am

Cool video clips. So may sites have too much text but this one is great. It has everything an MP fan would want. Will you be putting any Red State clips on here?

01/14/2013 12:59am

I didn't see him in Argo. Was he in it? He's one of the reasons I went.

02/24/2013 10:16pm

What a wonderful trip down memory lane this site has been. You have done a great job. Michael Parks is a wonderful talent and deserves to have his work remembered and enjoyed. Thank You!

05/08/2013 10:05pm

A fan of Michael's since Then Came Bronson, and love his singing. Where is the song with words "ride in my little red wagon". I remember it because my parents had that song on a record, but he sang it sooo much better. Good to hear he is still around !

In 1973 I used to pump gas for Mr. Parks at the Mobil station at the bottom of San Marcos Pass in Santa Barbara. I remembered him from the 'Then Came Bronson' t.v. series a few years earlier. He was very friendly. Years later when I would see him in movies I would always point him out and tell everyone, especially my kids, about pumping gas for him. I was glad to see him get his own starring role in Red State and enjoyed the movie. I am looking forward to the new movie.
