Antonio Barichievich, 56 years old, six feet, four inches, 510 pounds, has been wrestling six men at a time, lifting horses and eating 25 chickens for dinner since he moved to Montreal from his native Yugoslavia in the 1940s. Billing himself as THE GREAT ANTONIO: STRONGEST MAN IN THE WORLD, Barichievich is finally getting the break he has been dreaming of for years—a role in a movie, Once Upon a Time in America, directed by his favorite spaghetti-Western king, Sergio Leone (The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, A Fistful of Dollars).
