  • Short Summary

    A "he-man" performs a strength stunt - lifts a table on which a dozen men are standing.

  • Description

    No title.

    Around a dozen men stand on top of a piece of wood supported by a table. A man in a "strongman" outfit stands on the ground in front of them. He bends down under the table and leans on a small stand. C/U of the men standing on the platform. Tilt down to the strong man who stands up slightly, lifting the board and turning it around slightly. The strong man likes to eat ice cream and we see him tucking in to a HUGE bowl of ice cream and some peanut shaped biscuits.

    Note: there are two "strong men" films in this can so might be easy to confuse them...
