    France's tall boxer. Originally part of News in a Nutshell - international news stories in brief.

    Paris, France.

    Various shots of extremely tall man. He is Mitou (sp.?), the Romanian / Rumanian boxer. We see him do various things to demonstrate his phenomenal size - getting out of car, standing next to child, touching street lamp, holding clenched fist next to that of normal sized man. C/U of his enormous feet. C/U of man taking photograph - Mitou puts his hand over the camera lens.

    Note: unsure of correct spelling of boxer's name - more information gratefully received.

    "He is Mitou (sp.?)" - he boxed under the name Gogea Mitu.

    Sadly he died the year after this film was taken, at the age of just 21.
