Johnny Eck, Screen Painter

Johnny Eck was not only the star of such classic movies as "Freaks" and, um, "Freaks", but an accomplished screen painter as well. Window screen painting seems to be a folk art that is unique to the city of Baltimore, though I would proudly display Johnny Eck's screen depicting Christ giving some saucy kids the finger. "Walk on water your OWN damn selves, ya rotten kids!"
