Carl Anthony (born Carl Anthony Wuco; November 4, 1932) is a pilot who flew airplanes thoroughly blindfolded in 1955. These stunts were performed twice in a seaplane over Biscayne Bay, Florida, which was televised on national news, and once over land for the “You Asked for It” television show. For the promotion of this stunt, he proclaimed he had ESP, and used the stage name Count Alessandro di Cagliostro.

After appearing on the You Asked for It show, Anthony remained in Hollywood to pursue an acting career, while simultaneously training to become a commercial airline pilot. As an actor, the best film roles Anthony could land were in the Ed Wood films: Plan 9 from Outer Space (1956), as Patrolman Larry and The Sinister Urge (1960), as Johnny Ryde.

Anthony decided to leave Hollywood, and successfully became a commercial airline pilot. Anthony traveled to approximately 64 countries and most recently resides in the Philippines, where he was hired to help with flight details for a mining company in pursuit of the hidden gold and treasures looted by General Tomoyuki Yamashita during World War II.
