• Short Summary

    Champion steel bender, The Great Challard, exercises with and stands on his 4-year-old son!

  • Description

    Great Challard and Son. Part of the DIPS INTO COMEDY issue.

    Probably filmed at the Pathe Studio, London.

    Several shots of champion steel bender, the Great Challard, wearing shorts and flexing his muscles. His four-year-old son, Dick, is seen copying him. Dick tells his dad he wants to do some weight lifting and he picks up a weight that his father hits with a hammer. Then we see Challard standing on the chest of his son - it looks quite alarming, but apparently Dick's muscles are already strong enough to support his father.
