Jack Beers, 94-Year-Old Strongman


As a kid growing up on the Lower East Side, Jack Beers became known on vaudeville as “New York City’s Strongest Boy.” Later, he worked as a dog trainer and had small roles in Tootsie and Ghost Busters. In this clip from the documentary on his life airing tonight on PBS, a 94-year-old Beers navigates GPS, takes a shower, and rips a phone book into thirds with his bare hands. “We did it in one take,” director David Wachs says.
