John Green took the appropriate action in June 1968 and made a comparison film on-site with 6'5" tall Jim McClarin. Turns out, it was just about perfect for choosing the filming spot and the path that McClarin walked. It shows the massive bulk of the P-G film subject and should have convinced the world of the film's authenticity.
