Finding Yeti

Twin boys were born on October 12, 1916, but one of the baby boys died shortly after birth. The surviving boy was named Joseph Lockard Martin Jr., and he would quickly grow to a thin 7-foot 7-inch adult (2.31 meters). As an adult the tall and lanky Martin used the name Lock Martin, working odd jobs around Hollywood.

For a while he was part of the comic musical group Spike Jones and His City Slickers, and occasionally performed as a tall attention-getting cowboy for Knott’s Berry Farm and Arden’s Dairy. He also hosted a Saturday morning television show on a local Los Angeles station as the Gentle Giant, reading stories to children. Then he got a steady job as the doorman for Grauman’s Chinese Theater. It was while working at Grauman’s that he was spotted by a movie studio, and he got occasional bit parts where a very tall man was required.

His moment of fame came in 1951 when he was used to fill the foam costume of a giant from outer space named Gork, in the classic The Day the Earth Stood Still. In total he appeared in ten movies and one episode of the Peter Gunn TV show. His part in this movie was his final big screen appearance. He was supposed to be in one more sci-fi movie after this one, but his scenes never made the final cut.

In this low budget sci-fi story he is the one actor you never see clearly. He is Yeti, the snow monster from the Himalayas. A botanist from Los Angeles brings him back to L.A., and of course, the monster will escape his frozen box and wreak havoc on the citizens of Los Angeles before being killed. Lock Martin died four years after this movie at the age of forty-two. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
