  • Short Summary

    Very tall man is contrasted with a very short woman - a giant and a dwarf.

  • Description

    A very tall man - over 8ft tall is seen coming out of some revolving doors with a much shorter woman - possibly a dwarf or midget.

    The girl gets into a car and the giant squeezes himself in next to her. They wave out of the window (there seems to be someone else driving at this stage) to show the difference in the size of their hands.

    Some shots missing.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 570.
