Wrestler George "The Animal" Steele portrayed Wrestler Tor Johnson Leave a comment
in Tim Burton's Oscar winning motion picture; "Ed Wood."
George did reveal the mystery of why the "Ed Wood DVD" was delayed on the eve of the delivery;
there was a "song sequence" that bordered on copyright infringement. This proves that bureaucracy and artistry do not mix!
As a WWF Wrestler, "the Animal" was ferocious and he battled the likes of Bruno Sammartino, George Morales, Hulk Hogan and Randy "Macho Man" Savage. As his character aged, George "the Animal" Steele became a fan favorite as a Kong-like beast who would be smitten by a beautiful girl.
Like Jesse "the Body" Ventura, George "The Animal" Steele coached High School Football for many years and was an alumni from Michigan State. A Cohn's Disease Survivor, George "the Man" Steele was an energetic guest and allowed me to choke hold him for a picture! He also performed some experiments of the paranormal for some of his motivational speeches.
His website is easy to find, http://www.georgesteele.com/animal/index.htm ,
but you may want to take a peek at
to appreciate this very special "Screamfest Guest,"
who may be known as George "the Brainiac" Steele!
