  • Short Summary

    An extremely tall man called Otto poses in a park with some 'normal' size people.

  • Description

    Otto - French Giant.

    France?

    Man gets out of car and is obviously very very very tall. He walks to left; other men crossing in BG; boy stands looking after him. Then Otto poses; standing on pavement; next to the boy who's about half his size. Otto takes off top hat.

    (Goes blank; then some flash frames) CU boy - teen - on rt; w/ part of Otto (cut off at neck) on left. The short guy is holding out his hand to compare its size with that of Otto's; a few other people are peeking between them. Then MS the giant man standing on pavement w/ several people staring at him. He walks toward camera; people stare after him like he's a side-show freak.

    Height. Size; oddities.

    Note - November 2011: A visitor to the site has written in with additional information. Otto was called Battista Ugo and was born in Vinadio - Cuneo - Italy.
