CLYDE BEATTY AUTOGRAPHED PHOTO

Best-Clyde-Beatty-PHoto.jpg

Clyde Beatty was born June 10, 1903 in Bainbridge, Ohio, USA and died July 19, 1965.  Clyde was a big game hunter who became famous as a lion tamer and animal trainer. He also was a circus impresario who owned his own show that later merged with the Cole Bros. Circus to form the Clyde Beatty-Cole Bros. Circus. Beatty became famous for his "fighting act", in which he entered the cage with wild animals with a whip and a pistol strapped to his side. The act was designed to showcase his courage and mastery of the wild beasts, which included lions, tigers, cougars, and hyenas, sometimes brought together all at once in a single cage in a potentially lethal combination. At the height of his fame, the act featured 40 lions and tigers of both sexes. There is some indication that Beatty was the first lion tamer to use a chair in his act. Such was Beatty's fame that he appeared in films from the 1930s through the 1950s and on television until the 1960s. His "fighting act" made him the paradigm of a lion tamer for more than a generation. He is one of the caricatures at Sardi's restaurant in New York City created by Alex Gard which is now part of the Billy Rose Theatre Collection at the New York Public Library. In one of his most famous episodes, Clyde Beatty was attacked by one of his tigresses and saved by one of his lions, an episode that was reported internationally. He maintained that male lions would often dominate tigers, and would usually come out on top in fights against tigers of both sexes. In the 1997 film Fast, Cheap and Out of Control, the lion tamer Dave Hoover cites Beatty as a major influence on his career. The director Errol Morris uses several clips from Beatty's films during his interviews with Hoover. Clyde Beatty died of cancer in 1965 at the age of 62 in Ventura, California and was interred in the Forest Lawn Cemetery in Hollywood Hills. Original Clyde Beatty Autographed Photo, Signed: Best Wishes Clyde Beatty. Approx. Size 4 3/4 x 6 3/4, Black and White Photo. Regular Price - $ 1494.00 (Has sold elsewhere for $ 3500.00) / Sale Price - $ 750.00.

HUGO ZACCHINI AUTOGRAPH CIRCUS MAGAZINE PAGE

hugo full size auto.jpg

Hugo Zacchini was born October 20, 1898 – died October 20, 1975. Hugo Zacchini was the first human cannonball. His father Ildebrando Zacchini invented the compressed-air cannon used to propel humans in circus acts. He was known for being a daredevil and a painter, and for being litigious. He was involved with a lawsuit that made it before the U.S. Supreme Court, Zacchini v. Scripps-Howard Broadcasting Co., which he ultimately won. Zacchini sued Scripps-Howard, the owner of an Ohio television station, when it filmed, and then broadcast on the evening news, Zacchini's entire act of being shot out of a cannon at a county fair. The United States Supreme Court sided with Zacchini, ruling 5 to 4 that the publicity rights overrode the First Amendment rights in this case where the entire act was shown on television. Aside from his circus talents, Zacchini also held two engineering degrees from the University of Florida. Vittorio Zacchini was Hugo Zacchini's Uncle.

chappie fox auto.jpg

Charles Philip "Chappie" Fox was born May 27, 1913 – died September 12, 2003.  Chappie was a circus historian and philanthropist born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  Fox greatly expanded the Circus World Museum and helped found the Great Circus Parade in Milwaukee.

Fox took over the tiny museum, in Baraboo, Wisconsin in 1960, and began to collect and restore antique circus wagons. These wooden wagons had been built in the late 19th and early 20th century, and lay in disrepair across the United States and Europe.  Today, the museum owns over 200 of these wagons.

In 1963, Fox and Ben Barkin, under the sponsorship of the Schlitz Brewing Company, began the Great Circus Parade.

A self-trained circus historian, Fox wrote and edited many books about circus animals, advertising and imagery, and also authored many children's stories. He died of heart disease at a nursing home in Baraboo and is survived by his wife Sophie and daughter, Barbara Fox McKellar.
