The Arco Brothers
Posted on Monday, June 21st, 2021 by John Wood
Otto Arco began his vaudevill career with an old family friend Emil Von Mogyorossy as the duo “The Crotton Brothers. They performed feats of strength, muscle control, and hand balancing, dressed as Roman gladiators. Eventually Von Mogyorossy got married and and left the group but Arco’s own brother Peter (right, above) stepped in to replace him without missing a beat. “The Arco Brothers” would go on to perform in the Folies Bergere in Paris, the Hippodrome in London, the Winter Gardens in Berlin, and the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus.
