Long-time circus acrobatic partner of Burt Lancaster (performing as "Lang & Cravat") may have been short on stature, but he was big on athletic prowess and highly enjoyable to watch on-screen. According to reports, Cravat was as strong as a bull. When he lost his cool, it took several men to hold him back. Cravat appeared with Lancaster in nine films. The best remembered were The Flame and the Arrow (1950) with Cravat playing Piccolo, and The Crimson Pirate (1952) with Cravat as Ojo. Read more...
