    Thomas Rocco Barbella (1919 – 1990), better known as Rocky Graziano, was an American boxer. Graziano was considered one of the greatest knockout artists in boxing history, often displaying the capacity to take his opponent out with a single punch. He was ranked 23rd on The Ring magazine list of the greatest punchers of all time.

    i wont quote the graziano post there....but when i went with her indoors to new york in 2010 i stumbled into the small museum of new york up near central park...and in the middle of it was a large standalone display with all of the pictures you posted and details of that first stanley kubrick film on walter cartier.
