Does anybody know whether there's footage of Johnny Eck in the famous sawn-in-half routine?

Don't think that there is footage, but there are still photos as I'm sure you have seen.

I've seen photos, advertising copy, and reviews of the show. The act, however, doesn't seem to be on film. I've found only two movies for Johnny. "Freaks" we know. He also did an uncredited bit in a Tarzan movie, as a Gooney-Bird.

You might want to speak with Jeffery Pratt Gordon, he owns the bulk of Johnny's personal effects.

There is also film of Johnny I believe on the roof of a building and it shows him doing his famous act of climbing up the ladder and doin a handstand. It is a great piece of film!

There are a couple of nice clips on Youtube, which include both of those.
