Standing in front C is Pasquale Francesco Rizzi, billed as Cucciolo. This act was prominently featured in DeMille's "The Greatest Show On Earth". At the time, audiences believed he was a well-trained little boy, but he was a midget. He later performed comedy trampoline, and doubled as a skilled show electrician. I toured with him on the Howard Suesz Clyde Bros. Circus, in 1975. Cucciolo passed on February 2, 1984, in Sarasota.
