Nicholas Cuccia (January 11, 1912 – January 29, 1994), known as Nick Cravat, was an American actor and stuntman. He co-starred with Burt Lancaster in nine movies. He played a mute character in movies such as Davy Crockett and King of the Wild Frontier. He did not have speaking roles because he could not hide his thick Brooklyn accent.
