House of Wax premier, 1953. A certain seven footer is glimpsed among the crowd! (Lock Martin)

Great clip. Nice to see the elderly Bela Lugosi and ape-suited friend. I saw the movie when it arrived in the UK, it being in the 3D system requiring polaroid glasses, as opposed to the red/green variety. The wonderful irony is, the director, Andre de Toth, had only one eye! This was the film that launched Vincent Price on his career as a horror star.

TTM::: Based on the recent confirmation of Brahim's immense height, I personally think he should be upgraded to 10th place on our 8" height list :cheeseygrin: He is clearly close to Kosen's height so I believe he has earned it :cheers: Until we have more positive proof on Morteza (I think he could be 8") I think Brahim should be moved above him :cheeseygrin: Seen as I provided the original picture :shock:

Morteza stands 8' when not perfectly straight on his long leg, if he would do could easily be in the 8' 1" or 2 ". The 8 '1 "Morteza is an estimate that was discussed with TTM and agreed, and we know the measures taken by Reza the giant Iranian stand 8' (the real height) but their estimate for TTM is 8"1". Actually it is suspected that could reach 8 '2 "at most, but it's just a guess! The only evidence we have are to be photographed with Reza, Lasoi has been measured in several of those pictures and always exceed 8 '. Reza measured him personally and measures 8' 0.1 "(2.44m) stopped. Kosen and Brahim only know the height projected an ideal s`psine, but do not know their real height, which is seen in the photos are not 8'1 "or 8 '3" GWR assigned by the deviation of its column. Monjane is less evidence that other current giants but in the photos whit C. Greener can see that it could reach 8 '1 "with a spine normal. Nashnush is the least amount of evidence has to be on the list of genuine 8'.
My guess is if Brahim and Kosen are standing at 8 '1 "and 8' 3" barefoot without the degree of deviation from the column then the projection height for a normal spine they would be well over 8 '2 "for Brahim and about 8 '5 " to Kosen. Not to mention that add height shoes with thick soles and heels.
