"The One And Only" He was magnificent I'm so fortunate to have seen him work his last 4½ seasons
Beatty in an iconic pose with Nero. This photo is credited to Press Day for Hagenbeck-Wallace, in Kokomo, Indiana, in 1930. It has been featured in countless circus books and articles. Two years later, Nero attacked Beatty in a hurried rehearsal, providing him with the "jungle fever" headlines that led to Beatty's first book, THE BIG CAGE, of 1933. Carl Laemmle, the founder of Universal Studios, snapped up the film rights, and the movie of the same title came out along with the book. Beatty's international fame was forever after assured.
