Mighty Joe Young vs. 10 Strongmen

Posted on Monday, June 20th, 2016 by John Wood
The 1949 film ‘Mighty Joe Young’ features a number of familiar faces. In a memorable scene, Mr. Joseph Young of Africa plays tug of war with 10 strongmen in a nightclub. The strongmen in question are played by Mac Batchelor and Primo Carnera and famous wrestlers ‘Killer’ Karl Davis, William ‘Wee Willie’ Davis, Henry Kulky, “Slammin” Sammy Menacker, Man Mountain Dean, Ivan Rasputin, Sammy Stein and ‘The Swedish Angel’ Phil Olafsson. (The strongmen never had a chance, Mighty Joe easily prevails, pulling them one by one into a pool of water.)
