Memorable Manitobans: Angelo Accetti (c1888-1956)

Cameraman and photographer.

Born in Italy around 1888, he emigrated to Canada in 1908. He began working at a photo studio in St. Boniface, and between 1920 and 1954 he supplied Fox Movie-Tone News with local film footage. An early pioneer in aerial filming, he later moved to the Film Exchange Building. He weighed over 300 pounds. He died at his Winnipeg home, 14 Oakleigh Place, on 1 August 1956 and was buried in Chapel Lawn Memorial Gardens.
