Here's a photo of Johnny Aasen and another actress named Mary Brian, in the movie "Two Flaming Youths" (1927) .
http://community-2.webtv.net/THOMASPRESCOTT/TENGIANTSANDTHEIR/scrapbookFiles/mailedD5.jpg Mary Brian was only 5'2", and even though she's wearing heels in this photo, you can see that Aasen's real height was probably around 7 feet.

Took this out of the article:
According to some sources, his father was Nils Janson Bokke, a Swedish man of around 2.44 m (8 ft) tall. (This cannot be right, the Kristi Danielson that was married to Nils Janson Bokke (Bakke) was Johns mothers aunt, she and Nils Janson moved from Norway to America in 1867.
- Not that I know anything in particular to say Bokke either was or wasn't Aasen's father, but the facts you mention certainly don't mean that it "cannot be right": Being married to someone's aunt does not preclude one from having an affair -- or even just a one-night stand -- with the niece. (When one takes a trip back to "the old country" a couple decades after emigrating, for example.) -- CRConrad (talk) 11:12, 12 June 2010 (UTC)
According to the Norwegian moviepage "Filmfront" his father was Siebert Aasen, and the same site claims his height to be 2.43 m. They use his deathcercificate as their source. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 16:53, 15 July 2009 (UTC)
