Louis Sciorato – The Italian Giant

Posted on Saturday, February 17th, 2018 by John Wood
Louis Sciorato, billed at “The Italian Giant” was a fixture on the west coast vaudeville circuits in the late 1920’s and early 1930’s. Sciorato bent and scrolled steel and performed the human link feat between two airplanes. He had a standing offer of $1000 (about $15,000 in today’s money adjusted for inflation) for anyone who could duplicate his feats and even had a blacksmith on call just to verify everything was on the level.
