    Not all folk with medical disorders have entered show
    business, though many have. Here are a few famous
    people who were born with the pituitary glandular con-
    dition known as Acromegaly, often marked by tallness
    but, often, by progressive misshapenness, most no-
    ticeable in facial features. Some did exceedingly well
    in other pursuits, among them sports and even politics.

    Richard Kiel, Actor and Activist -- Keil's long character-acting career
    dates from "Eegah!" in 1962. Here, he clowns for a publicity shot with
    Roger "Bond" Moore, his co-star in "The Spy Who Loved Me" and
    "Moonraker" in which he famously personified "Jaws," the spy's cold-
    blooded, steel-toothed arch enemy! Photo thanks to ThisIsNotPorn.
    Today, Kiel still makes public appearances, including speaking for
    public awareness of Acromegaly.

    Robert Wadlow, the Alton Giant -- Robert grew to 8 feet, 11 inches, due
    to pituitary Hypertrophy, technically not Acromegaly. Verifiably the tallest
    man ever, Robert poses here with his dad, who stood just under six feet
    tall. Photo thanks to Maniac World.

    Leave it to comic master Mel Brooks to create a screen symposium lampooning
    every sort of bias and stereotype -- and not only make the lesson entertaining
    but an all-time comedy classic! Though the cast was populated by innumerable
    comedy vets, it is hard to imagine 1974's "Blazing Saddles" without the talents
    of inimitable Cleavon Little.

    His portrayal of Sheriff Bart --master-minding the salvation of a sterotypical
    redneck western town where everyone's surname was Johnson -- is, perhaps
    surprisingly, Cleavon's best-remembered screen appearance. But he was, in
    fact, a multi-award-wining stage, screen and TV personality. I've always felt
    that his nice-guy looks and manner may have actually kept him from landing
    more meaty leading roles. Though he never won super-star status in his 53
    years, Little amassed an impressive portfolio of work. He died of colorectal
    cancer in 1992.

    HAMBers will appreciate that he had key supporting parts in the car flicks
    "Vanishing Point" and "Greased Lightning."

    Ha ha! Hey Jimi, is it true that the real Heddy Lamarr had a problem with the Hedley Lamarr character?

    Absolutely TRUE, Automaclism! :eek: Apparently, Heddy felt Brooks' cavalier handling of her name did not show consideration for her real-life promotional use of her own moniker. (At one point, Brooks as the GOV says to his finicky flunky, Hedley Lamaar, "Relax! This is 1874. You can sue HER!!!" LOL:D)

    Brooks said her settled with the real Heddy Lamarr out of court.

    But RE hearsay, I don't know if there was any truth :rolleyes: to the contention that Robyn Hilton got double-billing for playing the GOV's busty secretary. :D Anybody?

    The 369th. Nicknamed the Harlem Hellfighters, ( The Germans named them Hellfighters because they fought like hell, never lost ground, never had any men captured, one third of the 369th diec in combat). Were the first all-black regiment to fight in World War I. Even before they left for duty, the Hellfighters had to endure the racist taunts, jeers and violent attacks of their fellow white soldiers on the Camp Whitman base. The regiment had arrived in France in early 1918 and was trained for several months in French military camps. By May they were fighting on the Front lines, where they spent the next six months— longer than any other American unit during the war. The entire unit was given the distinguished Croix de Guerre by the French national government for their service.
    But their heroism and valor were never recognized back home.
