Born in 1913, he wasn’t just another pretty face in the crowd; he embodied a rare fusion of brawn, brains, and boundless charisma. Imagine a youthful Lancaster, a veritable dynamo of athleticism, leaping into the circus arena at a tender 19, where he and his partner in crime, Nick Cravat, enthrall audiences with death-defying feats.
