17-year-old Robert Wadlow, over 8 feet tall, with his family in Illinois.
Titles read: "The LONG and the SHORT OF IT!"
Illinois, United States of America.
Various shots of the extremely tall 17-year-old Robert Wadlow. He stands beside a house and we see a measuring chart being uncovered beside him, showing his height between the age of 12 (7') and 17 (8' 1 1/2"!).
We see Robert standing with his family, who don't come up any further than his waist. C/Us of a woman's foot and head beside his, to show the extreme difference in size. C/U and M/S of Robert filming his family with the Pathe News camera.
Note: the tone of this story is rather light and jokey, but I think it is quite sad - poor Robert!
