NINETTE'S MEMORIES # 2
I sometimes think of Leon Fort as the forgotten wire walker, so many people talk about Seitz & Mendez, without knowing there was a third member in the act.
Bill, this is Leon Fort, he started with the Wallendas, then went with Joe Seitz & Gene Mendez, then worked as stuntmen for the movies one of them was the big Hotel that caught on fire, then he ended up at the "Circus of the Stars", as a teacher with Boby Yerkes for the movies stars. A real nice guy he was. Ninette.
Gene & Joe remained partners for many years after Leon left the act.
