Johnny Strong

Born: 14 August 1920, Jamestown, New York, USA
Died: 6 January 1992, Yucaipa, California, USA

Johnny Strong was a tall, well-built actor. At 6'5" he might have gone on to make a career out of his height, but this does not appear to have happened. According to records Johnny's film career seemed to be over within 18 months of it starting. Perhaps Johnny was not leading man material and his size and good looks may have detracted the attention from the star of the film, but this is just speculation. There is very little information available about 'Big' Johnny Strong's career.

Johnny Strong was quite a bit taller than Edward Brophy.
