Memories of Gary Hart
are memories of Brute Bernard and Gary Hart's exploits
on Australian TV in the 1960's as provided by Wrestling
Classics' fan Geoff Brown in a recent letter.)
I really enjoyed your story about Playboy
Gary Hart in the "Wrestler's
Stories" section from the web site. Gary Hart
was a master of getting the Australian public "offside".
of his favorite lines he used to say was, "only mugs and
fools go to work." But perhaps the one that really got
the females of Australia to hate him the most was this
comment on Aussie women. " Most of the girls I have seen
here are dumpy and lack good looks. You could even say
some were ugly".
I used to love the way he would put our favorite commentator
Jack Little down on TV when he would remark how poor
Jack was wearing a cheap $50 suit but he himself dressed
in $500 suits with $200 shoes and the finest shirts &
ties that money could buy.
of my favorite memories of Gary Hart was one day on TV
(it was Mothers Day) when he strolled out with Brute
Bernard. He announced that he had a very special treat
for the ladies. He then nodded to Brute who spoke for
the first and only time that I can ever remember on TV.
In a voice like John Merrick in the movie, 'The Elephant
Man', Brute said, "Happy Mothers Day." Gary Hart acted
like he had just donated a million dollars to charity
for that little treat.
Thanks for reviving the memories.
