  • Description

    "S-s-sh! Speak softly - we've found him - The Emperor of the Beavers! With 17 feet of Kingdom" M/S of three people in strange garb standing in a garden. Nearest to the camera is a man with a long grey beard. The two other people seem to be holding part of his beard - it looks unbelievably long. C/U of the man having his beard inspected by the woman.

    "And another young man we met had 12-feet to fish with - " Man hangs his beard over the side of a bridge. Another man rolls up the plaited ends of his beard into a big bundle. He then puts it inside his jacket. These beards all look unfeasibly long! Very bizarre. Probably an American story.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial - issue number unknown.
