Plot[ edit ] Shortly after the Soviet Union launches Sputnik 1 in Octoberan object from space crashes in the ocean just off the coast of Maine, then enters the forest near the town of Rockwell.

Hogarth eventually befriends the Giant, finding it docile and curious. When it eats railroad tracks in the path of an oncoming train, the train collides with it and derails, and Hogarth leads the Giant away from the scene, discovering that it can self-repair.
He is actually quoting 6 foot 10 as his height. I am afraid that even if he was suffering from Acromegaly, there is a huge doubt that he really was 7 foot tall at any point in time.
The photos should show the entire body of anyone included for comparison purposes example: Maybe some tv producer will create a show for this. They would probably attempt to excavate the corpse for measuring or something unprofessional before all is said and done.
I seen two intervews with him and Studd in one Ladd looked 2. A guy that made Willam Shatner 4 inches taller at times admitted it,and there is a pic from the outsiders and they have Patrick Swayze standing on 2 bricks so he looks like the patriarchal head of the family.
The other pics with Kemp, Noland they are showing Ladd looking down and he makes them all look like 12 year old children.
How can that be a 3" difference?? You post a lot of pics but they do nothing to prove height. Why post pics where there is a huge difference in height or the people in the pics are not side by side or slouching.
Quality pics not fodder. And is there any evidence ron fuller was really 6ft9? He always comes out to 7ft. After pic manipulation,downgrade and a Andre with not the best posture due to his condition.
Click Here Hot diggity dog! Could be morning measurements? Having never met him in person. It really off sets the balance of the photo,and Andre has that most people have when looking at smaller people his head could be tilted higher. Here is a good example of Andre standing with a long legged 6 ft 9 man.
Ernie Ladd height was always very well-documented it was actually stated that he was just a shade under 6 10 so to say he was six seven Peak height is just ridiculous. Also the one still image if Ernie Ladd with the Rock proves nothing.
Even today people mostly use imperial the UK system over metric the French system. EVen though most other things in common usage are metric, but not distance.
Click Here Legs still apart, not perfect posture Andre looking taller next to Gagne And we all know what he did with those sleepless nights, LOL!
Also could have contributed to his early passing. Maybe those were on these days he actually got some sleep? Dibiase was taller than Luger in person. Click Here A wrestling promotion is never going to bill a true giant like Andre at less than his actual height and weight. Richard Kiel of course measures up to how one would expect him to.
I work with a guy from I think is called Grimsby England and he is close to 60,he is an expert on refrigeration.
Like i said most younger people tend to judge his height from The Iron Giant is a rare animated picture that blends mystery, drama and overall family-fun.
