Hole in My Shoes

Special | 1h 27m 5s

A film about Jack Beers, known as "New York City's Strongest Boy". Beers eventually became "jack of all trades" - a strongman, a self-taught structural engineer (working on most of NYC’s iconic buildings), built Radio City Music Hall, indirectly shortened WW2 through an invention of his, put the spire on the Empire State Building, trained show boxers, and acted in over 200 films.
