Life History of Count Olaf (Four Pages)
This pitch book from Cliff Thompson's billing as "Count Olaf, The Norwegian Viking Giant" was perhaps an attempt to capitalize on the success of that other Scandinavian Giant, "Icelandic Viking Giant" Jóhann K. Pétursson. This simple "Souvenir Picture and Life History of Count Olaf" was probably sold in the late 1940s while Cliff was with Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey Circus.
