  • Short Summary

    A midget is compared to a giant.

  • Description

    A tiny dwarf or midget turns the handle of a small movie camera. A very tall giant stands in front of the camera. Weird shot.

    The giant places a hat on the dwarf. The midget is one foot nine and the giant nearly nine foot one. The giant holds the tiny person in the air. The giant holds a money bag which is allegedly heavier than the dwarf. C/U of the two men's faces. Spooky!

    The Giant stands with his arms and legs apart. He wears ornate cowboy boots which have the word "Texas" on them. The midget walks through his legs. C/U of the small man standing between the giant's boots. They shake hands.

    Very bizarre.

    The tall man here is Jim Tarver. The small man he holds up is Major Mite.
