Seeing Talun's name in the other thread reminded me of some pictures I have. Talun was a big star in Buffalo and lived in the area. I had some emails with his niece who was also local referee Teddy Thomas's daughter. It turns out Thomas was his sponsor when he came over from Poland and Talun ended up marrying Thomas's sister Edith.

G'day Joe,

Thanks for posting the great photos of Wladyslaw "Iron" Talun and the accompanying info.

I have read that Talun was billed as 6 foot 8 inches tall and 300 pounds. He certainly looks a striking physical specimen in the top two wrestling promo poses.

I believe that the third photo features Wladyslaw as the biblical character Goliath from the movie "David and Bathsheba" (starring Gregory Peck).

Cheers!
