Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Bull Montana (May 16, 1887 in Voghera, Italy - January 24, 1950 in Los Angeles, California), was a professional wrestler and American actor. Lewis Montagna (his real name after his birth name Luigi Montagna) came to the U.S. as a child. The hulking, plug-ugly Montagna became a professional wrestler under the name of Bull Montana. He gravitated to films in 1917, appearing first in several of the vehicles of his close pal Douglas Fairbanks. In 1919 he appeared as a gruesome villain in Maurice Tourneur's masterpiece Victory alongside Lon Chaney. He was usually cast as a thug, henchman or something not quite sympathetic, and sometimes not quite human (he was the apelike cave dweller in 1925's The Lost World opposite Wallace Beery as Arthur Conan Doyle's Professor Challenger).show more
