  • Short Summary

    A collection of elderly men with incredibly long beards!

  • Description

    "S-s-sh! Speak softly - we've found him - The Emperor of the Beavers! With 17 feet of Kingdom" M/S of three people in strange garb standing in a garden. Nearest to the camera is a man with a long grey beard. The two other people seem to be holding part of his beard - it looks unbelievably long. C/U of the man having his beard inspected by the woman.

    "And another young man we met had 12-feet to fish with - " Man hangs his beard over the side of a bridge. Another man rolls up the plaited ends of his beard into a big bundle. He then puts it inside his jacket. These beards all look unfeasibly long! Very bizarre. Probably an American story.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial - issue number unknown.

    The two men are Hans Langseth and Zachariah Wilcox.

    When they are on the bridge Hans is closest to the camera and Zach is behind.

    Hans' beard grew to 17ft 6in (longest ever!) and Zachs grew to 14ft.
