Meet the REAL Tony Galento

Home | Video | Links | Staged Reading

"Beetle-browed, nearly bald, with a head that rode his collarbones like a bowling ball returning on rails, his waist size more than half his five-foot, eight-inch height, Two Ton Tony Galento affected checkered suits, a sidecar motorcycle, and a dented bowler. His thick-lipped mouth, partially open as if to persuade flies to visit, looked more comfortable turned around the boiling stem of a cigar. Tony was a caricature of good-humored criminality, a guy who could say, 'yuse guys' and make it sound as though you had joined something." -- Joseph Monninger, Two Ton: One Fight, One Night
