Charlie hit over the head and thrown down the hatch on a Friday night. His commander thought he was AWOL, but they found him unconscious three days later in the hold. He spent four months in a body cast in an African hospital and recuperated to fight professionally. When Juke Box Racket premiered in Boston, the whole family attended. Unfortunately, his immigrant Sicilian mother walked out in disgust, upon the first semi-nude scene, and as the movie went on, it was apparent that Charlie was the thug who moved juke-boxes in and out establishments that the mob pressured.

Charles still has the handsome flat nosed boxer look, and resides in Hollywood, Florida. See more
