Wilt Chamberlain, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Andre the Giant on the Set of Conan the Destroyer

2013-07-02 2

I doubt anybody in the set could stand next to these guys and not feel very small.

Conan the Destroyer is an 1984 American adventure film directed by Richard Fleischer and starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as the titular Conan. Wilt Chamberlain and Andre the Giant played the villains Bombaata and the horned giant god, Dagoth, respectively.

While they seem like your average men in this photo, let us be reminded that the shortest in this trio, Schwarzenegger, stands at about 6 ft. 2 in. Chamberlain’s listed height is 7 ft. 1 in. while Andre the Giant is billed to be about 7 ft. 5 in.

I dunno about you guys, but at a personal height of 5 ft. 4 in., I’m feeling pretty puny.

    The Infallible Electric Eye

    By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
