Johnny Eck: The Legless Performer

6/06/2010 02:11:00 PM ·



Johnny Eck was born of a set of twins in 1910. He brother was completely normal, but Eck's torso ended where his hips should have been. Doctors believed he wouldn't make it past infancy, however Johnny Eck proved everyone wrong. He became an honor student, composer, band leader, artist, and movie actor. Surprisingly, he was an amazing swimmer, diver, and juggler. He could even run just as fast on his hands as men could on their feet. Johnny Eck took to the tightrope and even danced-all on his hands mind you.

The video was filmed vertically so to speak, which explains the odd outcome of the footage.
