BUCK NOLAN
CIRCUS GIANT


 


Buck Nolan - 7 feet 4 inches (223.5 cm)
From: thetallestman.com
Buck Nolan was born February 1936 in Princeton, West Virginia, USA. Date of death: November 2004 Richmond, Virginia, USA. (colon cancer). Buck Nolan's real name is Charles Logan Buxton. He was the tallest clown in the world. He toured with the Clyde Beatty-Cole Bros. Circus. He received modest royalty checks for his film work in the 1993 Debra Winger movie, "Wilder Napalm," and reportedly turned down the role of Darth Vader in Star Wars because he had a contractual conflict for another obligation.
Buck was on the Great American Circus where Bill and I met him.
