Dick York's Height
6ft 1in (185 cm)
American actor best remembered for playing Darrin Stevens on TV show Bewitched. In a 1992 article it mentioned how "He kept working for years, though the discs in his spine slowly crumbled. Over the years, he shrunk from more than 6ft-1 to 5ft-10 or so and gradually became hunched."

Rob, Is there any chance that this late actor could've been 11.5? I noticed there was one episode from Bewitched season 5 where Dick(wearing pajamas and slippers) is standing next to David White. There appears to be at least a 3 inch difference in height between the two with Dick only wearing slippers.
Editor Rob: I'd need to rewatch some stuff before being able to say.

Yes seems right. Always pretty skinny so can look 6'2

York suffered a lifetime back injury in the 1959 filming of They Came to Cordura. He's been taking painkillers all throughout Bewitched and this affected him also. He was generally bedridden since leaving the show and his family went broke. He and his wife and kids should have had royalty from being such a great comedian. His role did not involve magic, but when he quit Bewitched, he seemed to be the real warlock since all the enchantment was lost along with him. It's a shame no one except his family helped him until he passed.

I am sad in thinking of this great actor and man; He would deserve more lines if only to show him where he is, he is not forgotten;
I am sure Jim Carrey admires him so much his style proves to cle to his own one; He never looked as tall as his boss and friend in bewitched, David White though offcially the same height. Frank2 is perfectly right about all what he claims; i confirm; Poor, poor and marvelous actor; that timeless series is a graveyard and i remember how shocked i was in meeting by chance the funeral urn contening the D.White ashes in forever cimetery,LA. Who will ever be able to be aware of the fact they, all of those wonderful actresses, actors have gone while we keep on watching them on TV...

Poor Dick York suffered not only from severe back pain, but he also had emphysema from smoking four packs a day. The chief reason he left Bewitched was his poor health. He was replaced by another Dick, this time Dick Sargent who was just under 6'2". That reminds me of the fact that Sargent was about two inches taller than Cary Grant in Operation Petticoat. So much for Grant being 6'1". Maybe some day most of you will believe me. Trust me. I know of what I speak.
