He must have been wearing lifts. I doubt he was any taller than 5'10".

I met Cliff Robertson in the early 1990's.in Connecticut. I was standing 3ft from him.Later shook his hand. Talked. He was wearing very casual loafers. Low heal. Im five eleven and One eighth. Sorry but he was at least my height.

I'd say 5'9"-5'9.5 at peak and 5'8"-5'8.5 in his remaining years before his death. He was probably 5'8 range next to Tobey Maguire in spiderman and he was in his 70s at that time.

Barely. He was two inches shorter than Bill Holden in Picnic. Holden was reportedly five eleven.
When Robertson appeared again with Holden in The Devil's Brigade, he was the same height. But in that film he wore obvious lifts.
Robertson also wore lifts in Gore Vidal's The Best Man.

5'10" is correct. I worked with Cliff on JW Coop. One day when we ran the answer print for him, Cristina Ferrare showed up fro the screening. She had a large part in that film. I was instantly in love! We spoke for at least an hour waiting for Cliff to arrive. We really liked each other and I could tell she was interested in me. In fact after the screening I walked her to her car and even tried to ask her out on a date. At that time I was a struggling lab technician working at Metrocolor and she was already a highly-paid fashion model. Anyway after a long pause she said goodbye and drove off. Later she married car designer John DeLorean who got into trouble with the US government in a sting operation trying to sell cocaine in order to get money for his ailing car company. He was later found not guilty.
