Chesty Morgan is a retired exotic dancer and exploitation-film actress of Polish-Jewish birth who was active during the 1970s and 1980s. Most notable for her legendary 73-inch bust, Morgan was a highly popular and successful live act during this time. She appeared in two films by independent director Doris Wishman, and in one by Italian director Federico Fellini. Her scene for Fellini was cut from the film.

Chesty Morgan was born in Poland about 1937. In interviews, Morgan was opinionated about Judaism, and she had spent some time living and working in Israel with her family before coming to the United States. Morgan's parents, both Jewish, died in the Holocaust. Morgan was saved by placement with a Christian couple, then moved to Israel after WW II.
Commenting on her physical development, Morgan later said that she was "flat-chested until I was 17. I was like a boy. And then something happened." What "happened" was a 73-inch bust, which helped her stand out in her later career as an exotic dancer, and in her leading roles in film, in which her bust measurement is a record. There were also problems associated with her large bust. "I have back problems," she said, "but that's not the main problem. It's when you go out you have so much audience. I always wanted to have a small bust. It's difficult to get clothes."
At one point, Morgan served in the Israeli army. She later quipped that the reason she left Israel was that she "couldn't make enough money to pay for [her] bras." In fact, Morgan met Joseph Wilczkowski-- an American tourist and survivor of the Holocaust-- in the late 1950s. The two were married ten days after their first meeting , and moved to the U.S. where Morgan and Wilczkowski lived a happy life together for over five years. Morgan recalled, "It worked perfectly."
By 1965, Morgan and Wilczkowski had two daughters, and Wilczkowski was a co-owner of two meat markets in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn. Wilczkowski operated the smaller of the two markets, which were across the street from each other. On Sunday, March 27, 1965, Wilczkowski, his partner and an employee were killed in a brutal robbery that grabbed national headlines and became known as the "icebox murders".
Early stripping career
As a widowed mother, Morgan began dating. A boyfriend took her to a nightclub with exotic dancers and she was outraged. "I got so mad at him that I broke off with him. This dancing was something beyond my imagination, you understand." As her financial situation worsened, and with two daughters to feed, clothe and send to school, Morgan realized that she would have to take a job. About 1972, in spite of her aversion to stripping, inexperience and shyness, she decided to to take a job as an exotic dancer. Her first year in the profession was very trying. Morgan reported, "Believe it or not, the first show I did, I forgot to take off my bra. Yes. And the club owner came up to me and said, 'Excuse me lady, why do you think I pay you this money? To keep your bra on?'"
The club owner hired a choreographer to teach Morgan how to walk and perform well as a stripper. Chesty Morgan was a popular live act by 1973, using variations of the names of Zsa Zsa, Chesty and Gabor. During the week of November 19-24, 1973 she appeared at the Knight Lounge in Warren, Pennsylvania under the name Zsa Zsa "Chesty" Gabborr. The performances were promoted as her final appearance at the lounge. The advertisements for Morgan's appearance blared, "The world's chestiest, exotic, she defies medical science Fabulous!! Incredible!! Amazing! Fantastic!!... What your eyes see, you must believe. Stageland's biggest Attraction."
By 1974, she was using the name "Chesty Morgan". Though apparently coincidental, "Chesty Morgan" was the name of a minor character in director John Ford's 1926 silent film, The Shamrock Handicap, which dealt with horse racing in the U.S. and Ireland. She became a regular in Boston's famed "Combat Zone" adult entertainment district. In May 1974, she was appearing at the Sanderson Theatre in Springfield, Massachusetts as "Chesty Morgan and her All Girl Revue". As a sign of Morgan's popularity, one "Combat Zone" nightclub pointed to Morgan's appearance there as a life-saver for the institution. In August 1974, the owner of the financially and legally troubled Pilgrim Theater claimed, "She was like a god out of the heavens for us. She saved the theater and I hope she can do it again."
Morgan's performance style
Chesty Morgan's show was usually from twenty to twenty-five minutes in duration, and she would put on three shows a night. Her performance regularly began with a walk to the stage through the audience in which she would interact with her patrons. She would talk with members of the audience and allow them to feel and fondle her breasts, encouraging them to test that they were real. Once on stage, she would strip to the waist. Her stripping performances were accompanied by popular songs such as "Delilah" (1968). She would then don a negligee. A courtroom description of Morgan's act states that in this part of her act, she would, "occasionally [invite] a patron to come up to the edge of the stage, but not on the stage, and [permit] him or her to touch the top portion of breasts above the neckline of the negligee, or to put his or her face into the top portion of her breasts while she [shook] them in a kootchy-kootchy fashion."
Morgan's philosophy about her career was that she was sharing her natural endowment with her audience. "My boobs belong to the world," she said, "They're attached to my body, but they belong to the public." She believed that she was showing generosity by inviting her patrons to feel her breasts. "My heart is as big as my chest," she claimed.
About the style of her performances, she said, "I don't do a complete nude show. I don't do that kind of show. I'm not a porno star. Even men don't want a complete nude woman. Topless, maybe, but at least a G-string. They want something left to the imagination, something discreet."
During her act, Morgan employed much humor directed at her physical attributes. Her walk to the stage would sometimes include two midgets. They would march in front of Morgan, each supporting one of her mammaries. Her speech while on stage included such jokes as, "You know why my feet so small? Because things don't grow in the shade, that's why." She claimed to be opposed to Women's Liberation because, "they want to go braless and I can't do it."
Chesty Morgan's daily wardrobe consisted of bras made by the Texas company Command Performance. A 1979 article reported that they cost $50 each. A 1987 interview reported that the price had gone up to $100 each, and that she wore a double-P cup. On stage she wore an elaborate costume which included an ostrich plume shawl and a black, silver-sequined gown which she had purchased for over $5,000. She reported, in 1987, that some of her costumes cost up to eight thousand dollars.
Stello had learned his umpiring skills while in the army, and worked in semi-pro games around Boston while working full-time for the phone company. He began working in National League games in September 1968, and became regular staff in 1969. A talented singer who grew up with show business connections himself, for some time Stello spent his winters as a nightclub MC in New York and New Jersey.
They were married on March 24, 1974 in Pinellas County, Florida. It was Stello's first marriage. Though Morgan and Stello would remain friends until Stello's untimely death in 1987, Morgan said of this marriage, "I knew hours after I got married it wouldn't work." She later said about Stello, "Anyone who needed money, Dick was the one they contacted. They knew Dick was an easy mark. He always wanted to help people."
During the baseball off-season Morgan and Stello lived together in St. Petersburg, Florida. Morgan worked as a real estate agent when she was not performing, explaining, "When I'm home I have to do something. I can't rely only on this," referring to her career as a stripper.
Stello took a good deal of kidding from his sports colleagues after his marriage. Syracuse (New York) Herald-Journal sports editor and writer Arnie Burdick described Stello's new wife as "an exotic dancer with a front that's about as imposing as the Fenway Wall", a reference to the 37 foot wall in Boston's Fenway Park, home to the Boston Red Sox baseball team.  Columnist Joe Falls mis-identified the groom as umpire Ed Sudol, but, noting "Chesty"'s nickname, wrote, "The bride's measurements were listed as 76-26-36, which will require no further comment."
In 1974, Morgan starred in two films for the low-budget, independent director, Doris Wishman. According to C. Davis Smith, Wishman's usual cinematographer, these two films-- Deadly Weapons and Double Agent 73-- were shot simultaneously. Wishman had originally intended to make three films with Morgan, but, complaining that Morgan was a prima donna and always late, she had Morgan's character killed early in the story of the third film, The Immoral Three. The titular trilogy of this film are Agent 73's daughters, introduced to the audience at her funeral.
Morgan's next experience with cinema was entirely different from Doris Wishman's world. The celebrated Italian director Federico Fellini and his wife were in New York in late August 1974 in conjunction with the U.S. release of his most recent film, Amarcord (1973). During the visit, Fellini became aware of Chesty Morgan and her prodigious physique, and decided to include her in his next film, Fellini's Casanova. Morgan's role was that of Barbarina, a maid. Morgan described the role simply as "a woman with big boobs." Her scene with Donald Sutherland was filmed, and can be seen in an Italian documentary on the film. During the cutting of the film, however, Morgan's entire scene was removed.
In connection with her occupation, Chesty Morgan had several encounters with the law for letting the club goers touch her large breasts. Morgan attributed these troubles to politics. While in the midst of one of these incidents, she told a newspaper reporter, "The reason I get in trouble, you know, is because of these people that run for politics. These politicians don't like the hoochy-koochy."
In early 1975, while performing at the 79th Street Burlesque in Miami, Morgan was arrested with two other strippers. Morgan was charged with "exposing parts of her body in a manner intended to arouse the sexual desire of onlookers." In mid-November 1975, Morgan was performing at a nightclub in Boston. She was photographed with her husband before one of the shows, and the picture ran in the Syracuse, New York Herald-Journal.
Proud of his wife's career, Morgan's husband sometimes took his sports colleagues to her performances. In his autobiography, fellow Major League Baseball umpire Eric Gregg recalled seeing one of Morgan's performances with Stello. He called the experience, "one of the strangest nights of my life." Gregg remembered Stello as "a class act", generous and a teacher to him. He wrote that Morgan's show was, "a riot", but that his thoughts on the situation were, "here we were sitting with her husband. What were you supposed to say under the circumstances? Hey, nice boobs?"
Another sports related figure to attend Morgan's show was Bart Starr, Jr., the son of the Green Bay Packers' head coach. In 1976, while under the Wisconsin legal drinking age, Starr and some other underage friends were enjoying alcoholic beverages before Morgan's performance. Bruce Van Dyke, a Green Bay Packer guard, happened to be at the show too and noticed the young Starr at the nightclub. Van Dyke approached Starr and said, laughing, "I won't tell if you won't."
When Morgan performed at the Winnipeg Playhouse in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada from October 26th to October 30, 1979, The Manitoban, the campus newspaper for The University of Manitoba, refused to carry the advertisement for Morgan's appearance, claiming that it was sexist. Morgan held a press conference on October 25, 1979, the day before her performances, in which she answered questions from representatives of print media, radio and television.
On December 11, 1979, after nearly six years of marriage, Morgan and her husband were divorced. Stello and Morgan would remain friends for the rest of his life, calling each other often and spending holidays together. Stello also helped her through her oldest daughter's traffic accident death in New York in 1984. Of her romantic life after her second marriage, Morgan said, "I like to date men and go out, but I don't want to get married. One divorce is enough."
1980: Hamilton, Ontario
A June 1980 performance in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada caused Morgan some more legal difficulties. A vice-squad officer who had attended four of Morgan's shows at Hanrahan's Tavern, arrested her after her June 27th performance. According to Morgan, a large number of policemen came to stare through her window by while she was in her cell. "It was like Grand Central Station," she said.
She was brought to trial in December, 1980. The Provincial Court accused the portion of her act in which she allowed patrons to touch her breasts of being indecent and "grossly vulgar". The Crown attorney stated, "She encouraged the audience to touch her breasts. Breasts are a sexual organ, in my respectful submission. It was a minor version of a live sex act.
Morgan's lawyer counter-argued, "We heard from police officers, city inspectors and high school teachers, and not one of them said they were embarrassed by the performance, let alone saying they were horrified."
The witnesses cited by the lawyer testified that Morgan had indeed encouraged members of the mostly male audience of approximately 250 to inspect her breasts, but that the act was done humorously rather than lewdly. A police sergeant also confirmed that, though he found Morgan's accent difficult to understand, he was amused by her act and laughed at several of her jokes.
On January 29, 1981, the judge dismissed the charge. He described the portion of the act which had been accused of indecency as merely "audience participation" after "a dialogue concerning the genuineness or authenticity of her ample proportions."
In spite of the favorable decision, Morgan said that she had "had it with Hamilton," because she had been a "victim of very, very narrow-minded people." Her negative impression of Hamilton did not extend to the judge in the case whom she described as "just great; I'm crazy about him." Regretting that he had had "to waste his fine mind on listening to such nonsense," she gave him an invitation to attend one of her performances.
1983: Stoughton, Massachusetts
In October 1983, while performing in Stoughton, Massachusetts-- 15 miles south of Boston-- Morgan again came to the attention of law enforcement officials. A policeman was in attendance during one of her performances. Her long-time practise of allowing audience members to touch her was against the town's laws. Alex's Lounge, the establishment at which she had been performing, had their entertainment license suspended for one day and their liquor license suspended for five days due to Morgan's act.
Morgan returned to perform at the lounge for a week beginning on Monday, December 12, 1983. On December 7, she went to Suffolk Superior Court to request the issue of a temporary injunction to prevent the town from taking further action against the establishment. Morgan and the establishment argued that the purpose of this part of her act was to "establish a link between her and and the audience," and that it was unconstitutional to prevent an "occasional instance of 'touching'" during a non-obscene performance.
Chief Justice Alan Hale asked Morgan's lawyer incredulously, "Are you seriously saying to me that this woman letting some people touch her breasts or snuggle up is protected speech?"
"Yes," he replied, "and the state bears the burden of proving it is not."
Nevertheless, on December 9, 1983 Justice William J. Brennan denied the request. News of the situation made national papers, and a Galveston Daily News opinion commented, tongue-in-cheek, "The Supreme Court has ruled on some 'towering' cases in its long and distinguished history, but none more 'monumental' than the State of Massachusetts vs. Chesty Morgan."
Morgan's performances at the lounge in December dispensed with the audience interaction, but, claiming that the ban on touching infringed on her right to freedom of expression, she filed an appeal to the December decision. The appeal was argued on September 19, 1984, again claiming that Morgan's performance was "protected expression." On November 2 the decision was made against Morgan and George F. Alexopoulos, the owner of Alex's Lounge. The opinion of the court was that, since the town had no intention of further action against the lounge, and injuction was unnecessary.
About 1984 one of Morgan's two daughters died in a car accident. In an eventful life with many trials, Morgan commented of her daughter's death, "It was the greatest tragedy of my life." After meeting Morgan on a TV talk show in Boston, humorist Dave Berry wrote, "She has a very interesting and tragic life story, and I wouldn't be surprised if, in the very near future, she comes out with a book."
It was reported in 1984 that Lloyds of London had insured Morgan's bust. For the Christmas season of 1984, Morgan had the distinction of being the subject of a question in the "Sexual Trivia" game. Her question was: "What is the reported chest size of Chesty Morgan? 48, 52, 62 or 73 inches?"
In February 1987, Morgan was performing in Richmond, Virginia, and the subject of an Associated Press biographical interview. She was referred to in the article as a "queen of the nation's strip joints". She had made investments in real estate and the stock market, and worked as an exotic dancer for four months a year. A week-long booking of her show at this time cost a club between six and eight thousand dollars.
Morgan stated that she continued her exotic dancing career because she enjoyed it. "It makes me feel young. It makes me take care of my body. I meet very nice people. It gives me something to look forward to. If I didn't have to go to work, I wouldn't have to take such good care of myself. This keeps me in line. Morgan did not abuse drugs or alcohol, and did not smoke. She followed a healthy excercise routine including a daily seven-mile walk, and-- according to the 1987 interview, but hard to believe she was not joking-- trampoline jumping. She pointed out, "The difference between me and a lot of those girls that do have a big chest is that they're heavy. I'm size 5."
Morgan's last appearance was in Houston, 1991.
Dick Stello's death
On November 18, 1987, Morgan's ex-husband, Dick Stello died. He had been standing between two parked cars on Florida State Road 33 when a third car hit one of the cars, crushing Stello. Friends and colleagues expressed their grief at his sudden and unexpected death. Umpire Joe Brinkman said that Stello's MC background left him with a good sense of humor and sharp wit, "He was always a comic relief." Another friend recalled, "He always had a joke to tell you and never a bad word about anybody." Don Barber, head pro at Feather Sound, Florida, said, "Every time he walked in, it was a ray of sunshine... It's a tremendous loss to everybody. He has a lot of friends around the country."
Morgan had been working in Virginia when she received news of Stello's death. She came to St. Petersburg the night of the news. They had planned to spend Thanksgiving together, as they had done in the six years since their divorce. Morgan said, "We were just talking about it. He said, 'We're divorced and look, we're still together. How come we are still together?' I just can't believe he won't be calling me anymore."
When interviewed in 1987, Morgan reported that she enjoyed a quiet life at home, listening to Frank Sinatra records and going to the movies. She was a fan of the U.S. president of the time, saying, "President Reagan is my favorite man. When Reagan comes up on the TV, everything is dead in the house. You know, he always holds his wife's hand. They stick together. There's something there. Of the Iran-Contra Scandal, Morgan said, "I'd do a free show to support his case."
Morgan expressed patriotism and gratitude to her adopted country, and its military, "This country is super. This is the greatest country in the world." In her post-show business life, Morgan retired to her real estate profession, working as a landlord.
As of 2009, she lives in an expensive house on Tampa Bay, but - due to never reducing her very large breasts - has to take aspirin for chronic back pain. She owns apartment buildings, which manual labor she often likes to perform herself.
Though Morgan was a popular and successful exotic dancer throughout her performing career, her film performances are often the subject of ridicule from critics. Due to the transient nature of live performance, it is her film roles for which she is best remembered today. Once relegated to grindhouses and drive-in theaters, by 1992, Morgan's starring role in Deadly Weapons could be seen nationwide on cable TV channel TMC at 11:00 p.m. John Waters used clips from Morgan's films with Doris Wishman for his 1994 comedy Serial Mom. San Francisco Chronicle film critic, Mick LaSalle, reviewing Waters' film noted, "Waters' love of the vulgar and the absurd permeates Serial Mom... By the time a teenage boy is shown getting off on a grotesque video of porn star Chesty Morgan, Waters' sensibility has become infectious."
In contrast to her film work, during her performing career in the 1970s, Morgan was a highly-regarded and popular exotic dancer. She was called the "queen" of strip shows during the 1970s, and looked on as a savior for clubs needing audiences. Memorabilia related to Chesty Morgan is preserved at Exotic World Burlesque Museum & Striptease Hall of Fame in Helendale, California, under the supervision of Dixie Evans.
