Child Actress Virginia Weidler, and Two Little People
Aasen became a well-known celebrity in the 1920’s and 30’s as a
showman. He began his showmanship career traveling with
carnivals and sideshows as “The Norwegian Giant.” He made
several movies in Hollywood and became known as the “Harold
Lloyd Giant.” As a sought-after attraction, he became a world
traveler making several voyages to Europe, the Orient and
Australia. News articles recorded him as tall as 8 feet - 9
inches. It is still debated as to how tall he was. It seems most
reports would exaggerate his height probably by including his
high-heel boots and hat in the measurement. However, at around 8
feet, he was a formidable man.
