Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mike Mazurki (December 25, 1907 - December 9, 1990) was an Austrian-born American actor and professional wrestler who appeared in over 100 movies. His towering 6' 5" presence and intimidating face usually got him roles playing tough guys, thugs, strong men, and gangsters. Mazurki was born as Mikhail Mazurkevych in Tarnopol, Galicia, Austria-Hungary (now Ternopil, Ukraine). He migrated with his family to the United States at the age of six, living in Cohoes, New York, a city just outside of Albany, in old mill housing on Olmstead Street with his mother. He attended La Salle Institute in Troy, New York for high school. He later graduated from Manhattan College with a Bachelor of Arts degree. He became a professional athlete in three sports, primarily wrestling, but also football and basketball.show more
