He still edged out Costner in Revenge. Definitely near 6ft2 peak.

My most vivid Anthony Quinn moment: early in 1963 as Whats My Line mystery guest. Never knew,though,Quinn was Mexican! It looked like Phyllis Newman had Quinn,but when she asked Anthony,"Did you make any movies with Sir Alfred Hitchcock?" and got a "no" answer,the next panelist,William Talman,asked Quinn,"Can you paint?"and Quinn said "Yes",Bill nailed Quinn because Quinn was an accomplished painter/sculptor. Just have one Quinn movie,but it was his best:Zorba The Greek! (Nailed 3 Oscars in 1964,but My Fair Lady got 8 Oscars,including Best Actor,Best Director,and Best Picture! Still,if you like Anthony Quinn,you'll shout "OOPAH!" watching Zorba The Greek.)

I think Quinn was just 6'1". He's two inches shorter than Gary Cooper and one inch shorter than Ward Bond in 'Blowing Wild':

He looked about 3 inches shorter than Yaphet Kotto in Across 112th Street. In a lot of shots online, Quinn is in the foreground so seems nearly as tall.

Looked a bit taller than Henry Fonda to me in Warlock but they were very similar.

Yes, 6' 1" is about right! But what a career with wonderful movies!

gvigo, good pictures. The first picture with Niven, Peck and Quinn lined up is somewhat deceptive since it looks like the ground is uneven and Quinn is on a lower part of the soil. The second image seems to show Quinn maybe an inch taller than David Niven. I'd give Quinn about 6'1" tops based on these images, assuming Niven was still about 6' then.

In the movie "Lost Command" Anthony Quinn looks 3 maximum 4 inches taller then 5'9.5" Alain Delon. Thus 6'1" seems accurate.

Quinn and an uncle of mine roomed together back in the early thirties. My uncle had come out from Oklahoma to act and ended up doing small bits before eventually becoming a portrait photographer. He and Quinn met on some film and decided to share expenses. (And no, they weren't bonesmugglers!). Later Quinn met and later married Catherine DeMille, daughter of CB and after that when my uncle would see Quinn he'd get the cold shoulder treatment. My uncle was 6' and told me that Quinn was slightly taller.

He was a big man, at least 6`1. He was a couple of inches shorter than Gary Cooper or Gregory Peck, both 6`3 I think

Quinn was six-one.

Rob, I think you got him just about right. I always thought of him as being a 5'10" kind of guy, but after looking at lots of photos throughout his career, I think the young Quinn was strongly over 6'1".
