The Armless Girl
The armless girl I
know best is Louise Capps Hill, from Gunbarrel City, Texas, a
village about 60 miles southeast of Dallas. Louise came to our
show at the State Fair of Texas for a job in 1979. She was
divorced, with two children. Louise met her husband Bruce Hill,
a man who drove nails and ice picks into his nose, with our show
in 1984. The only word to describe Louise is remarkable. An
Indian girl, she was adopted by a teacher, Mrs. Capps, who
raised her. Mrs. Capps firmly implanted the idea that Louise
could do anything anyone else could do, in fact she can do more
than most others. She has an elegant hand, OOPS, I mean
foot-writing, she dances, swims, plays guitar, embroiders,
operates farm machinery, figure roller skates, is an avid
horsewoman, drives a car or truck with a class A Texas license.
By 1986, her daughter Nola was a teenage beauty working as one
of our showgirls.
When I cast her for the motion picture "Being Different" in
1980, the director of the film, Harry Raske declared Louise the
star of the film.
