Date of Birth
May 16, 1887
Birth Place:
Vogliera, Italy


Born in Italy, Lewis Montagna came to the U.S. as a child. The hulking, plug-ugly Montagna became a professional wrestler under the name of Bull Montana. He gravitated to films in 1917, appearing first in several of the vehicles of his close pal Douglas Fairbanks. He was usually cast as a thug, henchman or something not quite human (he was the apelike cave dweller in 1925's The Lost World)....
