I love it when a tall man lives a long time (as I am tall and elderly) and Ebsen lived to be 94. He was survived by two sisters, who may actually have been older than he was.
Ebsen was also a professional dancer, which is an occupation that favours short men. Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire were less than middle height.

Not really that familiar with Lee Horsley and I see he has a page here listing him as 6'3" but based on that photo alone with Ebsen I would've guess that guy as 6'2" tops.

Yes, Ebsen was co-stars in the TV series Matt Houston and was pretty much the same height than 191 cm Lee Horsley. And Ebsen was that time 76 years old! Incredible that the guy hasn't lost height.

Rob, on second thoughts The President's Plane is Missing is exceedingly dull and was made for television, despite his role as a Vice President, perhaps change it to Davy Crockett films.

Rob can you add The President's Plane is Missing, Between Heaven and Hell, Mail Order Bride, Broadway Melody of 1938, Night People and The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band? The One and Only Genuine Original Family Band is one film! Requested him a long time ago, glad to see he got added. Ebsen had about three inches on Peppard in BAT so seems about right.

Thanks for adding, he looked a genuine 6'3" and a truly tall guy walking around in Breakfast at Tiffany's. Ebsen held his own heightwise with Jimmy Stewart, John Wayne and Clint Eastwood in photos I posted on request page. I think Baer Jr. certainly had a comfortable inch height over Ebsen on The Beverly Hillbillies but Ebsen could have started to drop height around either due to age or posture.
