This weekend, at a tournament, I saw an adult about 1750 play 1.f3...

That game is usually credited as being Gibaud vs Lazard, from 1924. While both of those people were masters, neither was a GM.

Moreover, the game appears to not even be real.

As stated above, the Gibeau vs Lazard game's authenticity is questionable; also there were no GM or IM titles in 1924.

The shortest decisive international tournament game that was decided by the position on the board (as opposed to a forfeit or resignation made as a protest, like the second game of the Fischer - Spassky match) was probably Dordevic - Kovacevic, Bela Crkva 1984:

 

… and who could forget GM Anand's 6-move disaster against GM Zapata at Biel in 1988?

 

So this last game (Zapata vs Anand, Biel 1988) might be the record holder for GM vs GM decisive games.
