'Big Lou' played hoods to the hilt
Comedian became familiar face on Canadian television
'Always a cigar in his mouth, like a gangster': Brother
By Patrick EVANS, Staff Reporter
As a professional wrestler, he made his opponents scream in pain. As a comedian with Wayne and Shuster, he made Canada scream with laughter.
Louis " Big Lou" PITOSCIA, the ultimate cigar-chomping bruiser, died peacefully last Thursday at the age of 76. His career saw him move from professional wrestling in the Maple Leaf Gardens of the 1940s to playing tough-guy roles in movies and television.
But he's best remembered for decades of sketch comedy send-ups of gangsters, hoods and prison inmates as a regular on Johnny Wayne and Frank Shuster's Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television show.
With his trademark fedora and cigar, PITOSCIA lived his bully image to the fullest. "Oh, big cigars he smoked. Always a cigar in his mouth, like a gangster," said his brother James, 78.
But PITOSCIA had no problem playing against type if it got a laugh. The men on Wayne and Shuster's show used to dress up in drag as an all-female band. The camera would cut to PITOSCIA on the piano, wearing a black dress with a frilly collar and brooch, a grey wig tied back in a bun -- and, of course, a cigar in his mouth.
At the funeral home yesterday, he lay in the casket with a rosary and a fresh cigar in his hands.
PITOSCIA was born to Italian immigrant parents in Toronto on November 11, 1928, one of five children. When he hit his teens, he was, as James put it, "a lot of trouble. He didn't take crap from anybody."
PITOSCIA figured out at a young age how to land a punch.
"I know at school he used to beat the kids up," James said. "Then the schoolteacher gave him a strapping. He stopped after that. He turned out to be a good guy."
During his wrestling career, PITOSCIA adopted a bad-guy persona in the ring. It was a good rehearsal for the series of hoods and gangsters he would play in his four decades as an actor.
When he retired from wrestling in the early 1950s, he weighed 280 pounds, had a 60-inch chest, a 48-inch waist, and a 19.5-inch shirt collar.
In a 1960 interview with the Toronto Star, PITOSCIA said his inspiration for leaving wrestling for show business was Mike Mazurki, a wrestler who jumped ship for Hollywood. In 1951, Mazurki invited PITOSCIA to Los Angeles. On that visit, PITOSCIA landed a bit part in the movie My Favorite Spy, starring Bob Hope and Hedy Lamarr.
For Big Lou, there was no turning back. "I was sort of a hood in it. I got killed," he told the Star. "Anyhow, that experience gave me confidence in my hidden talents, see."
But Hollywood couldn't seduce PITOSCIA. His family says he was determined to make it as an actor with Canada as his home base. It was something he had in common with Wayne and Shuster, who turned down offers in the United States, remaining defiantly Canadian throughout their careers.
PITOSCIA's work with Wayne and Shuster, including some appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show, led to more roles on television and commercials.
"The time I was on The Ed Sullivan Show," he said in 1960, "I had to get knocked through a lousy brick wall. Out of my pay, they took 53 bucks tax. Fifty-three bucks they charge to let you fall through a crummy wall."
PITOSCIA never worried about being typecast. "He was happiest when playing the godfather roles," said his niece, Rosemary CORRENTE.
It was a role he loved to play, even when the cameras stopped rolling. CORRENTE remembers as a young woman bringing a date over for dinner. She laughs at the memory of Uncle Lou sitting down with the young man and pulling out a switchblade.
"He started cleaning his nails with the switchblade and said, 'So, what are your intentions with my niece'?" CORRENTE said. "He never came back for dinner, that guy."
Relatives remember PITOSCIA for his hulking mass, booming voice and devotion to family. "As tough as he was, he had a big, soft heart," CORRENTE said.
Rosanna PICCININNI- FERRONI, another niece, said as a little girl she was always excited when Uncle Lou visited. "He would pick me up with one hand," he said. She would perch there on his giant open palm.
"He never had kids," she said, explaining why PITOSCIA showered a father's love on his nieces and nephews. "We always knew if we were in a bind, we could go to Uncle Lou."
PITOSCIA married in the 1960s. His wife Jill died about 30 years later. After she was gone, he wouldn't let anybody use her rocking chair. "Anybody who sat in it, he would say, 'Hey, that's my wife's chair,'" James said.
Back in 1960, when he finished that interview with the Star, PITOSCIA ordered the reporter back for one more word.
"You newspaper guys are always spelling my name wrong," he said. "It's P-I-T-O-S-C-I-A. It ain't Pistachio like you're always writing. That's a nut."
In addition to his brother James, PITOSCIA leaves a sister, Lucy PICCININNI. A funeral service will be held at 10 a.m. today in the chapel of The Simple Alternative Centre, 1535 South Gateway Rd., in Mississauga.

Heath LAMBERTS
By David FERRY, Saturday, March 12, 2005 Page S9
David FERRY of Toronto writes about Heath LAMBERTS, whose obituary appeared on March 5.
As a young actor, graduating in the 10th class of the National Theatre School in 1973, my first theatre gig was as an apprentice at Neptune Theatre in Halifax. Heath LAMBERTS, graduate of National Theatre School's first class, was starring in Peer Gynt. He treated me terribly that summer. A senior actor in the company explained to me that Heath was threatened when I got a laugh (in a very small role) in the first read-through. I was appalled. Three years later, Heath and I were playing leading roles in a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation film about the Dumbbells. He was a charming and helpful actor and apologized to me for his earlier treatment. Heath organized a wonderful wrap party at the Gunners Club. Two years ago, I was researching an article about playwright James Reaney, and I called Heath in Pittsburgh. He and classmate Martha Henry had worked with John Hirsch and Mr. Reaney at Manitoba Theatre Centre on Names and Nicknames. Heath again was open and helpful and passionate, sharing several insights to the excitement and reality of the first class from National Theatre School to go out into the new regional theatres of the sixties, breaking the ground for actors that would follow. Heath also talked of his love for his partner in Pittsburgh. I know the demons of insecurity that plagued Heath and led to his bad behaviour over the years, but I was also able to see the talent and generosity of the man.
