American Singer best remembered for songs such as "Suspicious Minds", "Love Me Tender", "Jailhouse Rock", "Can't Help Falling in Love", "Viva Las Vegas", "Heartbreak Hotel" and "In The Ghetto" and as an actor in films like Jailhouse Rock, Love Me Tender, King Creole, Blue Hawaii, Wild in the Country, Viva Las Vegas, Fun in Acapulco and Girls! Girls! Girls! An Army medical suggested he was 6ft 1/2 inch, although site visitor Ramiro got hold of Elvis' army medicals and he is mostly listed 6ft, with one 5ft 11 listing - See Here

Comment on the Height of Elvis Presley

Steve id like to apoligize for the message i sent for you im so sorry
you know , Elvis fans sometimes get upset by what the people say about the King
im sorry
177cmGuy said on 30/Sep/15
I think 5'11.75 was his night time height and the other recorded height of 6'0.5 was his morning height. 6'1 doesn't seem possible but 6'0 is still arguable for Elvis.

steve how are you ?
how tall is linda thompson ?
she and Elvis are in barefoot in that photo that mike 2 posted .
why dont you give your opinion about Elvis height comparing with Linda height as you did with Sinatra ?
Steve said on 27/Sep/15
"lets forget Parker , Berle , and all the artists that Steve insists to compare Elvis height ."

Amaral, you either can't read, or don't understand basic English. Or you refuse to look at photos posted snowing Berle next to people such as Bob Hope who were 5'10". Do you own research....if you are able.

And no, I don't dislike Elvis.

How we forget anything that disproves Elvis was 6'. Just accept the myth. That's what you all want. Go ahead. Believe what you want. I'm done.
Mike2 said on 27/Sep/15
Hi Amaral, I think it's not right
to accuse Steve of lying, we should respect everyone's opinion and I do believe that Steve puts across a very strong case. I do agree with you though about LindaThompson who is 5ft 9ins tall although I would say that Elvis is more like 3 inches taller rather 4. The reason I keep on going on about this Karate photo is that it is face on and shows Elvis' full height in bare feet next to two others whose heights are reported as being 6ft and 5ft9ins, and until I can find another fine example such as this I can't say much more as I have family shots where due to them being from the waist up and from certain angles I actually appear in some to be the same height as my dad who was 5ft 9 and I'm 6ft 1ins. So I am just not convinced by similar photos of Elvis. The karate photo seems to me to be an ideal photo. Thanks

I think Elvis looked similar sort of height to Leo di Caprio, more 5'11.25-5 range than 6 ft.

dicaprio is not 5'11.5. 5'10 is more like it.
amaral said on 25/Sep/15
Mike 2 how are you ?
i saw the picture of Elvis and Ed Parker in barefoot .
lets forget Parker , Berle , and all the artists that Steve insist to compare Elvis height .
lets just use Linda Thompson height .
as we know she is 5. 9 feet , and in that pic we all see that Elvis is almost 4 inches taller than Linda
so this makes him almost 6 feet .
i think Steve dont like Elvis , i dont know the reason.
and i think he is lying about Berle height
ask Steve to post a pic of Berle and someone who is 5 10 than i ll star to believe him
thas enough for me
Steve said on 25/Sep/15
Most of the photos are unreliable? I just don't get it. I guess they're 'unreliable' if they show Elvis to be under 6', but reliable when they show him to appear 6'.
james said on 25/Sep/15
if elvis was under 6ft barefoot when why did he say in a concert in 1974 he was quote 6 feet 1 and half tall, thats sounds to much but elvis looks to tall to be only 5'11 he looks like 6'1 in those films
Mike2 said on 24/Sep/15
I respect everyone's view here and can see where Steve is coming from, however most of these photos are unreliable due to the camera angles with most being waist up shots. Other photos of the same event with Danny Thomas Elvis looks to be far bigger and in the Daniel Boone photo it's obvious to me that Elvis is a good bit taller. I think that for those who want to prove that Elvis was under 6ft then Ed Parkers height needs investigating as we have photos attached to this site showing Elvis and Parker barefooted and so you can't hide your true height with lifts etc. Ed Parker was officially listed as being 6ft tall and you can see that he and Elvis were the same height, so forget the rest of these waist up shots and footwear shots, these karate photos show the real height of Elvis. Also on a final note, Elvis was measures several times in the army as being 6ft tall; on the balance of probabilities would all of these different occasions have been recorded incorrectly?
Steve said on 23/Sep/15
Sinatra was lift wearer. But not always. Berle was most definitely not a lift wearer. Tom Cruise is short. Probably no more than 5'6". there is more than an inch and a half between Berle and Dick van Dyke. More like three inches.
Steve said on 22/Sep/15
Please explain why Elvis isn't visibly taller than Pat Boone who I suspect in his prime was at most 5'10"?

Steve said on 22/Sep/15
Jerry, I go by all the evidence. Photos in mass do not lie. But the army does! Stop believing official listings. Elvis was shorter in the 1950s then suddenly grew taller with the help of lifts. It's clear to see if you just open your eyes. There are photos taken of him in the 1950's snowing him no taller than Col. Parker. Then in the 1960s he a lot taller. Milton Berle was no more than 5'10 1/2" so explain why Elvis didn't look at least an inch and a half taller. If Berle was only 5'10" which many suspect he was then Elvis should have clearly appeared two inches taller. He didn't. Case closed.
TJ said on 22/Sep/15
Sinatra is tricky though Steve. You call him 5ft 7.5, yet here he was in his 70s looking taller than Tom Cruise, who is around that height himself:
Click Here

The mid '60s photo of Sinatra and Elvis has Sinatra looking taller than some might expect against Elvis, but in other pics the height disparity between Elvis and Sinatra looks similar to the height disparity between Sinatra and Kennedy. In fact, if we could entirely trust photographs to tell us the truth, Elvis might edge out Kennedy by a very small amount using these examples:

Click Here

No, I'm not really saying that Elvis was taller than Kennedy. I don't think he was.

So what to make of the fact that the height disparity seems to change between Elvis and Sinatra? Well, how about comparing the later pic of the two with a pic taken of a then 70-year-old Sinatra looking similarly taller than he should against Reagan:

Click Here

Sinatra looked too tall against Cruise, too tall against Reagan and taller than he had previously against Elvis because Sinatra wore lifts, just as many did. Note that a biographer referenced on Sinatra's page on this site made specific mention of Sinatra being a lift wearer.

In the pic of Berle with Van Dyke, I don't see more than 1.5 inches between them, and in the pic below with Elvis I see Elvis maybe half an inch taller than Berle. It's therefore not a good example if you are certain that Elvis needs a downgrade. The constant use of Berle as a reference point could also be difficult if he was an occasional lifts wearer and who's to say he wasn't? It was rife in Hollywood at the time.

Jerome Jackson said on 20/Sep/15
I emailed Elvis' former road manager Joe Esposito and asked him how tall Elvis was barefoot. He replied: 5"11.75. The army measurements vary I think, because some measured him wearing shoes and others didn't. Look up the pictures. Although some photo's are questionable like Elvis with 5' 10" B.B.King. Elvis does appear to be more than 2" taller...and they are both wearing the same standard heel shoe.
jerry said on 20/Sep/15
steve why is elvis in the army listed at 6'0 or even 6'0.5 barefoot then if your saying he is 5'11 there is so much evidence he is at least 6'0 have you steve ever read kathy westmoreland book about him being six feet plus, no why do you think you seem to be so accurate and keep asserting he was 5'11, he was not steve look at facts and read more on him

Grow up? Is that your answer? Just because you say he was 5'11.75" and I disagree I must be the child? Pathetic.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Sep/15
"Elvis Presley height: 6ft 0in (183cm)"

I really do think that he was measured at 6ft0 in the morning. Therefore, he was most likely walking around at 6ft2 in boots. I suppose 5ft11 is fair listing but it was probably his low. He wore boots a lot so he probably did trick people into thinking he was well over 6ft.
ednerd said on 11/Sep/15
I wouldn't go by Military measurements. my brother is / was 6 foot tall (maybe 5'11 and 3/4ths) and when he was in the military he told me they measured him at 6' 1/2 inches, then the next time they measured him at 5"11" that's a pretty good variance. doesn't sound too accurate to me. My brother just thought it was funny.

gx79, open your eyes and look at the photos. He wore lifts. It's mentioned in several articles and books. Just do an internet search.
Steve said on 7/Sep/15
Elvis and Sinatra. Click Here

I see about a three and a half inch difference in height.

If Sinatra was 5'7" that makes Elvis 5'10 & 1/2".

So lets say for argument sake that Sinatra was 5'7 & 1/2".

That brings Elvis to 5'11".

Sinatra with Cary Grant, Sophia Loren and Stanley Kramer.

Click Here

It's quite obvious that Grant is at least five inches taller than Sinatra. Grant was at least 6', perhaps 6'1" in his younger days.

Of course, without seeing their feet we don't know who wore lifts and who didn't.
gx79 said on 7/Sep/15
how do we know elvis wore lift no one knows
Steve said on 6/Sep/15
Elvis wearing lifts? Nah. Can't be. Never!

Steve said on 4/Sep/15
Gx79, that photo you linked is tilted. Go by the one I linked.

Also, I saw a newsreel where Elvis first worked at Paramount in 1957 on Loving You. In it he meets with various actors working on the lot. It showed him with Jerry Lewis who was starring in The Delicate Delinquant. Lewis was 5'10" and in this newsreel Elvis hardly looked any taller. If I can find it, I'll link it.

When Elvis started out in Hollywood, he didn't wear lifts. But later on he did. That's when he seemed to grow taller.

Elvis is not taller. We can't see their shoes. Dean could be on a box. Or wearing lifts. Elvis could have been on a box or wearing lifts. Both men wore lifts. Neither was 6'.

Bottom line here is Elvis is not taller.

Steve said on 1/Sep/15
I will never agree that Elvis was 6' or especially 6'1". So live with it.

As for Dean Martin being obviosly shorter, show me those photos. And please be full shots showing their shoes. Otherwise, forget it.

I have posted a video showing Milton Berle wearing regular shoes where he is no shorter than Elvis. And I posted several photos showing Berle was no more than 5'10&1/2". Half an inch is really impossible to see. So Elvis was no more than 5'11". He even listed his height early on at 5'11".

Check out the boots on Elvis. Click Here

Definitely lifts. I'd guess they added at least two inches, perhaps two & a half inches. The steep angle of the foot is a dead givaway.
Steve said on 28/Aug/15
Tom Jones was 5'9" while Elvis was 5'11" so naturally you'd see a two inch difference in height.

Also, both men were lift wearers.
Steve said on 26/Aug/15
Check out how much height Berle had lost by the time this photo was taken.

Jonathan Winters who was reportedly 5'10" towers over Berle. I doubt by the time of this photo that Berle was any taller than 5'7".

Looks consistently 2 inches or more taller than 179cm Tom Jones in most pictures. I'd say 182 is too low, closer to 185. Also doesn't look more than 3 - 4 inches shorter than Bass singer JC Sumner who was a whopping 6'5.

Steve said on 26/Aug/15
Dean Martin once claimed on the air he was 6'1". In reality he was 5'10". He wore lifts.

Joey Bishop claimed he was 5'9&1/2". He was no more than 5'7". He wore lifts.

Johnny Carson claimed on the air he was just under 6'. In reality, Carson was 5'10". He never wore lifts. At least I never saw any on his feet.

Danny Thomas claimed on the air he was 5'11&1/2". Thomas was no more than 5'10" and never seemed to wear lifts.

Telly Savalas claimed he was 6'1". Telly was 5'10" and wore monster lifts on Kojak.

Tyrone Power said he was 6' when he was the mystery celbrity on What's My Line. Power was 5'10" and sometimes wore oifts as was the case in The Long Gray Line.

Just about all male celebs under 6' all lie about their height.

For some reason, ages ago 6' became the magic number. To attain it meant more success.
Steve said on 24/Aug/15
Those are not lifts on Berle. You watch it again and this time try to remain objective.
Mike 2 said on 24/Aug/15
Hi allie, I have listened to this show called Desert Storm many times over. It doesn't help that Elvis Was Slurring his words in places but I think he says and I quote " I'm six foot and a half', however you could be right.
Steve said on 23/Aug/15
Documentation from the army isn't exactly what I'd call irrefutable evidence. When it came to famous actors who served, their heights were usually inflated.

Elvis didn't appear taller than Berle who for argument's sake was over 5'10" but certainly not much more. So a half an inch is hard to see. Therefore I believe Elvis was 5'11".
gx79 said on 22/Aug/15
look at shoe milton wearing steve figure it out
allie said on 22/Aug/15
rob i have a tape from elvis from the 2nd sept midnight closing show 1974 elvis said he was six foot one and halfI am "sure" Elvis was six foot and his boots and lifts made him a little taller. but do you think he could have been six foot one half

In his own words I'am six one and a half"

Basically he was 6 feet tall, I just wanted to know where HE said "I am 6 feet, one and a half inches tall." That's quite a difference.:doh::doh::doh
[Editor Rob: it's a barefoot impossibility really, although maybe he's claiming a boot height.]
james said on 21/Aug/15
steve how you ever watched the film viva las vegas, there is an actor in that called Cesare Danova he was listed to be 6ft 2.5 some 6ft 4, i not sure which height is accurate he looked tall but if you look both him and elvis next to each other you can see elvis only was 2 or 3 inches shorter than him, i dont know whether elvis was wearing his 2.3 inches lifts but considering danova was at least 6ft 3 elvis must have been 6 feet at least even 6 feet 1, i agree with you steve that 6 feet 2 was wrong, i think that's fan made but arguing that elvis is only 5ft 101/2 is absurd, when we even have documentation from the army that he was measured at 6ft 1/2, i dont know milton berles height but he was for sure over 6ft
Steve said on 19/Aug/15
Elvis and Milton Berle. Click Here

Neither man is wearing lifts. They appear to be the same height. Berle was no taller than 5'10&1/2". Actors who were truly 6' or taller were obviously taller than Berle. Watch The Whispering Ghost. 6'2" Grady Sutton towers over Berle. Watch the episode of the old Texico Star Theater where 6'1" Basil Rathbone was obviously a lot taller than Berle.
Steve said on 16/Aug/15
A fellow I know and respect who's a very successful retired entertainment lawyer told me that just about every actor lies about their height. They always inflate it. He said he represented several well known male stars who claimed to be at least two inches taller than they actually were.
Steve said on 14/Aug/15
Then Milton Berle was 6'1". That would mean elevating loads of people.
Gx79 said on 12/Aug/15
Joe I agree Elvis was 6'1 rob you can't tell height unless your next to them

Mike2 said on 8/Aug/15
Hi Amaral there is no way that Elvis was 5ft 10 ins, most people agree that he was 5ft 11 ins minimum. To me Elvis was 6ft, there is so much evidence to support this. I don't know Milton Berles correct height or the shoe wear he had on at the time but you just can't argue with photos of Elvis in bare feet, it adds conviction to what some of us are saying. Ed Parker was 6ft tall, I know this for sure. Do you agree that bare feet photos are more reliable that others such as the Milton Berle shot?

Gx79, I'm over 70. And you need to study English. Your writings are next to being unintelligible.
TJ said on 7/Aug/15
Steve is right about the Elvis at 6'2 claims being nonsense in that '50s magazine, but Elvis himself didn't claim that. When asked his height in 1956, he said "an even 6 foot".
amaral said on 5/Aug/15
hi Mike 2 how are you ?
thank you for your explanation about Parker , but did you see the photo that Steve posted of Elvis and Milton Berle . They are exactly the same height and Steve said that Berle is 510 "
what dou you about it ?

Steve your 70 and I'm 18 grow up Steve who cares Elvis height was ps there more proof he's 6'0 or 72 inch
Memphis Lady said on 2/Aug/15
Growing up in a town that's very much in the shadow of Elvis and also my own mom a big fan of his too you could say that we were gate fans at Graceland and growing up in the 70's I got to see Elvis on horseback, car, golf cart and on foot at the gates of Graceland up until the day the day he died. Without doubt Elvis was tall, for most part thin and very handsome. Easy 6ft at least, at least as tall my husband is now who is alittle over 6ft. TCB fellas
Steve said on 1/Aug/15
If he was 6'2" then add two inches to every actor he appeared with.

Again, utter nonsense.

i think Steve is right because you can see that Elvis and Berle are the sqme height .
are you sure that Ed Park is 6" ?
Mike 3 said on 30/Jul/15
If Elvis used lifts then of course we all know so did John Wayne who boosted his height by 4 inches for years in his cowboy boots with lifts.
Mike 3 said on 30/Jul/15
Straight to the point, Elvis without a doubt 6ft.
5'11 guy said on 30/Jul/15
with Richard Nixon he's barely taller by a fraction. So with shoes or boots on he was 6 foot no doubt. Period. 5'11" barefoot is right on. Many of you are mental arguing about growing after 18. Funny how uneducated people tend to have delusions of grandeur. Hahha life is to be appreciated not scared of
Steve said on 29/Jul/15
Jack, bless you. I'm far from being young. Once I past 70 I realized youth is strictly for the young.

Oh, by the time Elvis met Grant backstage, Grant had lost height. And Elvis was wearing height increasing footwear.

I contacted Graceland Archives and asked them whether they had an army document which showed Elvis' measurement as 6ft in barefoot and 6ft 1 3/4ins in boots. I also asked whether they had any information regarding some suggestion that Elvis grew after he joined the army. All I received back was a link to the 1956 interview on Youtube in which Elvis refers to himself as 'six foot even', and then I was informed that the army documents also confirm this. So I was slightly disappointed at the response as I did mention this site and that there is also documentation stating that Elvis was 5ft 11ins.
Graceland are obviously of the opinion that Elvis was six foot ' period', so I tried to get more information for us to debate, but to be honest we are no better off. I am beginning to believe that the document showing the two measurements taken in the army with and without boots doesn't exist as I can't locate it anywhere!
Gx79 said on 27/Jul/15
@cody I agree Elvis was 6'0 tall and his should be changed to 6'0
Steve said on 26/Jul/15
I asked my doctor. He said the vast majority of boys stop growing in height between 16 and 18 years of age. By 18 in 99% of males, height ceases as the bones fuse together. There have been rare cases of height increasing past 18, but by 25, the rarity becomes infinitesimal.

If Elvis gained height as an adult he did so using special footwear.

Finally, and this will end my argument, tall actors always appear tall on screen. When I say tall I mean 6' or more. Cary Grant always looked tall. So do today's actors such as Kevin Costner or Christian Bale. But with Elvis he started out looking no more than 5'11". He even looked 5'10". Then in later films he 'grew' till he towered over most male co-stars.
Jack said on 26/Jul/15
Its more common than people realise here that people do grow after reaching adulthood in their 20's, as my mother did, I did, we both grew an inch and and just over an inch and an quarte. I know friends too that this has happened. This was when we were all in our twenties too. Your body never stops changing and growing in certain ways throughout your life weather it be height, feet, bone density, your body becoming more filled out as you get older. Your body, height, size is in continuous state of change from day one until the day you die, that's pretty much a medical fact. With respect to all of you here. Elvis's body changed drastically over the years and not just in weight but he, shot up very quickly in height as a teenager. People don't tell you that both when him and Buddy Holly were the same age of getting their first driving licences as kids before fame buddy holly at 17-18 was 5ft 03 until his late growth spurt got him to 5.11 before he died tragically. Elvis at 16 was already 5.11, so he was almost 6ft as a kid and very skinny and lanky and had that look until pretty much the army. He started to fill out in his 20's. But Elvis had what you call long limbs, legs, arms and gangly. He was in fact measured at over 6ft for the army with his boots on and 6ft without. The famous photos you see of Elvis physicals or for publicity. But Elvis actual physical height in socks was 6ft.05 consistently on four occasions. His fellow army buddies who served with him and were present at various points of Elvis physicals during his army tenur, not the famous the publicity stunt one but the subsequent ones after, have all testified that serving with Elvis great. He was just another guy but they also state on his physicals his weight remained pretty stable in the army always between 170-175 and his height in stocking feet was 6ft just by .05 inch. Not my words but his fellow servicemen he served with in Germany. If I'm to believe anybody here, I'm going to believe our servicemen whom served in our country, worked with Elvis everyday and pulled and shoved dirt in freezing winters for two years with him. That's real honesty and respect right there. If we can't respect our troops and ex servicemen then and put photos over their knowing the man and seeing the man on a daily basis and not only that but dressing down for his physicals then the question here should be here; Do we all need to see a Dr? Elvis was 6ft and I'm not even saying it from the army facts, I'm saying it from the guys in the army who also had their physicals with him too and were witness to his weigh in and height on physicals in the army as Elvis was to there's. God bless and have a good day.
Cody said on 25/Jul/15
I never met Elvis but been to many of the Elvis conventions over the years at Elvis week, held yearly at Graceland and had the good fortune to meet many of the lovely people who worked and co starred with Elvis from Scotty Moore to James Burton to Kathy Westmoreland. Now all these people worked with him on a daily basis for many years right through his career at the beginning and at the end. Both Scotty and James are 5ft 9 and 5ft 10 respectively each and Kathy Westmoreland is 5ft 0. Both James and Scotty have said on many occasions with or without boots Elvis was at least 6ft. Kathy who not to make the beautiful little lady blush but whom has already stated in her book publicly had shared her bed with Elvis and had a brief relationship with him when she joined the show and his concerts in 1971 said that that the key thing upon meeting Elvis was he was a lot taller in person than she expected at least 6ft. She should know pardon the pun and obvious here but Elvis would not be wearing his boots of cowboy hat to bed if you get my drift. So three very close people whom knew Elvis from right across all of Elvis's career have addressed this publicly and more directly by Kathy Westmoreland in her book years ago which she's now Republishing with an upto date version next year I think. It should be an amazing book that's for sure as this little lady also went to high school and is best friends with none other than Steve Martin the comedian whom she managed to meet Elvis in Vegas and there you have it. Plus Steve Martin thinks Elvis stood at 6ft 2ins just to add fuel here. But I certainly believe Scotty, James and Kathy as they have no reason whatsoever to lie or any basis for gain either so it's based on the truth. Have a nice day. But I definately go with their view that Elvis was at least 6ft.

@steve if you look up people male can grow up to age 25 but Elvis rounded his height down he was 5'11.5-75 he wore lift because people wanted him to be bigger then life
Steve said on 23/Jul/15
Gx79, growing after reaching adulthood is extremely rare. This document you linked is accurate. Elvis was 5'11". A slight lift boosted him to 6'.

And 88, I agree that 5'11" is relatively tall, even today. But I don't agree that Elvis lost a full inch during the day.
katrina said on 23/Jul/15
rob have you ever seen the film love a lot love a little elvis was the same height as actor dick sargent who was 6'2 elvis was wearing lifts but is possible he could have been 6'1 barefoot rob?
88 said on 22/Jul/15
5'11 is tall! Where do people get off thinking 5'11 is short?! I believe he was 5'11 on his day after all his hard work after the latter part of the day,and 6 ft in the early morning and early part of the day. Many people are about an inch taller in the early part of the day.
Gx79 said on 22/Jul/15
here what height Elvis put down in his younger years I think Elvis was 6'0 because some people grow until 22

Lack of progress? Meaning I don't agree with you?

Well, too bad. I don't. And I didn't panic. How childish.
Rattlesnake Jake said on 19/Jul/15
Again Steve proves my argument and back ups everything I've previously stated in my last comment by his lack of 'Progress'. He reinforced his statements in a panic when Mike 2 had verified documents and evidence come in from Graceland. His reply was both laughable and comic to a fault. The old standard Steve reply of 'Elvis is using lifts and below 6ft blah blah blah'. However I did notice with Steve an admitted mistake that I don't think he realised himself. He put Elvis height at 5.11 3/4, and started talking weight as a source of measuring people's heights too now. With the greatest respect that's when I knew really Steve does not really 'Know' what he's talking about. It's all very vague and speculative with him and he's certainly not an attorney that I've ever heard of with respect. What attorney basis his case so much on hearsay without evidence? I'm actually not biased either way on Elvis's height but I'm certainly a realist. I certainly don't have height issues myself as I'm 6ft 2ins myself so I'm only on this page out of curiosity. But I certainly think everybody is allowed to share their opinion on here just as much as you Steve. Mike2 Way to go man. We should get Elvis back to 6ft officially as that's what all the evidence says. As for Dave Hebler he was never the same height as Elvis and in various photos which you can find online of them together online you will see that Elvis is taller by two - three inches. Dave's height officially is listed as 5ft 10ins and I've spoken to him and met him so I can say that with eyewitness certainty. Have a good day people . Respectfully, Rattlesnake Jake
Gx79 said on 16/Jul/15
Rob listing for ones he was measured 6'1 3/4 in boots 1.2 inch boots whitch would make him 6'0.5
@ Steve your a stupid idiot at least rob can tell height better then you tbh this is a good website there just some height that should be changed
Arch Stanton said on 16/Jul/15
I think 5'11.5 is the best shout, I'd say 6'0.5 more likely a shoe measurement.
Arch Stanton said on 16/Jul/15
No way was Elvis over 6 ft barefoot, in fact I thought he could look in 181-2 range. See him Katrina with 6'1.5 Wendell Corey in Loving You who had him by an easy 2 inches.
Steve said on 15/Jul/15
Elvis couldn't have been over six feet barefoot. That would mean Milton Berle was over 6' and that's most certainly not the case.
amaral said on 13/Jul/15
steve do u know hall tall was David Hebler ?
elvis is the same height of David hebler by the photo Mike 2 posted .
i think you are right about Milton Berle
are you sure Milton Berle is 5 11 ?
in that program in 1956 elvis was 21 years ,, maybe Elvis increased in beight till 1957 ,?
because you just post pics of Elvis in the pre army films
why don t you post some pics of Elvis besides any actor in barefoot in the 70 '

I've consulted Graceland Archives of Elvis Presley Enterprises and they say that Elvis was measured in the army in bare feet at 6'0.5'' or 184.15 cm, according to the army records. They use to round it down to 6' but the exact Elvis' height was 6'0.5''. Ramiro.
The above I located online, I believe Ramiro has contributed to this site too
[Editor Rob: yet we have a photo Of Elvis in his boots being measured]
Steve said on 13/Jul/15
Jake, I have no idea what you're saying except it appears angers you I refuse to agree with you. I guess you believe it would be better if I said something like "Well, Elvis could gave been six feet, even over it, but I still question it."

Steve said on 12/Jul/15
"Elvis was 5ft 11.75in (182 cm); however, he routinely wore shoes that had "lifts" inserted into his size 11 shoes making him over 6 feet tall."

I believe the lift claim. But I think Elvis was no more than 5'11". If he was 6' he wouldn't look that short next to actors who were over 6'. And he would have towered over Milton Berle.

I also believe he was around 165 to 170 lbs. in his prime. That helped him to appear taller than he really was.
Jake said on 12/Jul/15
The problem we have here regarding Elvis's height Steve is whilst other's are open to depate, you are frankly 'NOT' surely if as you suggest that your truly an attorney, then debating should be part of your practice rather than fictional, one sided views. Your just stuck permanently on your one view with listening to what others are debating or talking about here. Everybody is also entitled to their own Elvis opinions on this page just as much yourself. Please try listening and reading alitte more openly as it will lead for far more interesting discussion rather than repeating yourself. There is many well respected people on here that are just as equal to you whom know an awful lot more about Elvis history than we do. It's best to show respect and be a gentleman.

Hi Steve, no you don't have to accept what I say, that's the whole point of this site, however I have to be honest and I can't help it if it goes against your opinion. Ed Parker was my height and I so my mind is made up. As I have stated previously I have much experience taking people's height and so at the time of meeting EdParker I actually studied his height and this was long before this site existed! All the evidence on the balance of probabilities with the documentation will is official and won't go away means that Elvis was 6ft . My evidence about Ed Parker is not hearsay evidence, I have spent years also dealing with court evidence!!
Steve said on 11/Jul/15
With all due respect, anyone can say they met some celeb. But that doesn't necessarrily make it true. I read lots of personal sightings where people make claims about heights. Some are accurate or at least fall within an inch of being accurate. Others are obviously false such as someone claiming they met Paul Newman who they swore was no more than 5'7.

Mike 2, you say you met Ed Parker. That means we must accept your word as being 100% true. But we have conclusive evidence Elvis was the same height as Milton Berle. And that Elvis was considerably shorter than other celebs listed as being 6'1".

Having been an attorney, I must go by the best evidence available. Heresay doesn't qualify.

Now if you had photos taken of you with Ed Parker....
amaral said on 10/Jul/15
please i want know who is right ?
Steve who says Elvis is 510" cause has the same height of Milton Berle and with enbasement cause we can see in tv show that Elvis has the similar height of Berle or Mike 2 is right who posted a photo of Elvis and Ed Parker in barefoot and they both have the same height .
milton Berle is the same height of Ed Parker who is 6" or Ed parker has the same height of Berle who is 510" as Steve said .
Steve said on 7/Jul/15
Ramiro, that's not true. There are people who met Elvis who said he was less than 6'. I've read their comments going way back. One guy who used to post here who claimed he met Elvis said he was 5'11". I forget his name.

You're right that hardly anyone is exactly 6'. Then there's the question were they measured wearing shoes or barefoot.
Steve said on 6/Jul/15

Ramiro said on 6/Jul/15
The problem with these kind of discussions, is that it`s literally impossible to arrive to the desired answer. NOBODY is exactly 6 feet tall, 5'11'' tall, or whaterver; and if we take into cosideration other factors as time of the day, if the person went to bed or not, etc..., everybody's height can vary a lot. Then, if we have to discuss using pics or images, the amount of distorting factors in presence makes it ridiculous trying to say "that person is exactly...."

In any case, there isn't a single quote of people who knew or met Elvis saying less than 5'11.5'' and there are a lot saying 6' or more. And that exactly agrees with Elvis' medical measurements, being all 6' except the one where he didn't go to bed all the previous night.
Gx79 said on 5/Jul/15
@ Steve how do you know if your right Elvis height at 17 was 5'11.5!he prolpitly grow another inch

Steve said on 4/Jul/15
Not seeing the feet you cannot say for certain Wagner was wearing cowboy boots. And if he was, how do you know they had large heels?

Somewhere there are a set of photos showing Elvis with Wagner when Elvis went to work at the Fox studio. Both are in street attire. They are basically the same height. If I find them I will post them.
Ramiro said on 3/Jul/15
Again using pics where we can't see feet (even from waist up), nor floor or ground, without knowing if they are somewhat tilted, and where Elvis' companions are clearly in cowboy boots, where Elvis, according with clothes, is surely in regular shoes or even in slippers. As an example of the latter, in one of the pics with Robert Wagner Elvis is "dressed" in housecoat, very probably in his dressing room, while Wagner is dressed as his cowboy movie role.
Mike 2 said on 2/Jul/15
Regarding the karate photo Jerry Schilling does look a lot taller than Elvis and Dave Hebler appears to be of similar height, however in reality Jerry was similar in height to Elvis, perhaps a bit taller and Dave Hebler was shorter than Elvis, so whether the group on the right of this photo were on a raised level, or it's just an angle thing I don't know, but Jerry does look huge. I am satisfied with Elvis, Ed Parker and Linda Thompson though, as they are in the centre looking straight at the camera and you can see Elvis' and Ed's feet. It is worth looking at the New Gladiator footage on Youtube to see what I mean about Dave Hebler, who is now a grand master of Kenpo. In the film you can see that for some strange reason Elvis is training in boots in some of it, but there is plenty of footage of hm barefooted and he seems to be a couple of inches taller than Dave Hebler and Bill 'Superfoot' Wallace who was listed as being 5ft 10ins tall at the time. So for me it really depends upon how tall Ed Parker was as he is virtually the same height as Elvis, and having met himI truly believe that he was 6ft tall. People can disagree with me, but of course I disagree with them. Perhaps we should follow Steve when he describes himself as being roughly 5ft 9ins tall, and agree that Elvis was roughly 6ft tall. Now that we have this karate photo I can't take other photos seriously as they are mostly from the waist up and either person could be wearing a variety of different footwear. So, how about a photo of Elvis and Johnny Cash standing next to each other barefooted. Now there's a challenge!!
jboliver said on 1/Jul/15
steve how tall is jerry schilling ?
elvis is few inches shorter than him .
i think he is 6,3" , in the photo that mike 2 posted elvis is standing in barefoot besides ed parker .
but you can compare him to david hebler and jerry dchilling and for me he is a tad under 6' , but never 511" as you insist to say

A mountain of excuses. Oh, the reason is...

Come on!

Elvis and Milton Berle were the same height. Neither wore lifts on that television program.
Elvis was a lot shorter than 6'3" Steve Forrest. He was shorter than 6'1" Johnny Cash. Nearly five inches shorter than 6'3" Jimmy Dean. Several inches shorter than 6'2" Edward Andrews.
Jake said on 27/Jun/15
Look at What Elvis is wearing closely in that picture with Rob Wagner and you will see he's actually in a robe and on the set, in between shoots for Love me tender. The bigger photo of this which exists shows both men full body and Elvis is in slacks underneath and a shirt with loafers shoes which were flat and Rob Wagner was in Cowboy gear with guns at his side and wearing western boots. Truth.
Gx79 said on 26/Jun/15
@ Steve you can't see there feet
Mike 2 said on 26/Jun/15
Regarding Ed Parker I'm afraid that it is true but if I'm not believed then so be it. A barefooted photo of Elvis next to 6ft Ed Parker is enough for me. Waist up shots with other people prove nothing. to me this barefooted photo says it all. As has been said 6ft Ed Parker on Elvis' right and 5ft 9in Linda Thompson on his left. Nothing left to say.
Nick said on 26/Jun/15
Word for you guys out there,Steve is well known on this website and it's pointless trying to argue with him, he will show a million silly photos that simply do not prove anything. For the record I'm a professional photographer in LA and I suggest Steve find either a hobby or a woman lol other than just this website in his life.
katrina said on 26/Jun/15
Rampage I don't think Elvis was quite as tall as that. Lisa was only a little girl when he was alive so he would probably seem a lot bigger to her, the army have said he was 6'0.5 he has a driving licence which listed him as 6ft and 6ft 1 I believe he was about 6'0.5 which is why he was similar to Ed parker

Steve sometimes i agree withyou about Elvis height
i Think Elvis is a tad taller than Berle , as you posted the video in 1956.
Now i dont know if you are right .
Mike 2 posted a pic of Elvis standing beside Ed Parker in barefoot and they have the same height .
Ed Parker is 6" .
what do you have to say about ?
so why dont you post a pic of actor that is 6" beside Elvis and stop post actors that everybody knows that is 6 3 ' as jack lord and Forrest .and we ll stop arguing .
Mile 2 did this why dont you do the same , search in the web an actor that is 6 " besides Elvis .

@ mike 2 and @ nick jack lord website aside he wore 2 inch Cuban heel boots which would make him a solid 6'3 tall
Steve said on 20/Jun/15
Jack Lord wearing lifts😂
Mike2 said on 20/Jun/15
There is an entry in Jack Lord's page that he used to wear lifts to make him 6fy 3ins tall, so that probably explains the height difference too
Nick said on 20/Jun/15
simple Jack Lord was well known to use two inch lifts inside his Cuban heeled boots. This was confirmed on several occasions when his clothing was auctioned at memorabilia auctions by his estate. His boots had lifts inside plus this photo in question and also it's other photo from the same shoot Jack is much closer too the camera, giving the impression of greater height and size, broader shoulders etc. anybody whom works with camera, photography, film, lighting, staging will totally understand this from a professional perspective. Like a certain angle can make person look fatter or thinner. It's as simple as that. We've all had those photos that don't serve in the best possible light. It's just all about position.

@ mike2 thanks for the post
Mike 2 said on 19/Jun/15
Click Here The explanation Steve seems to be that Jack Lord was 6ft 2ins according to his gun licence. Personally I think that you cannot judge a person's height by' from the waist up 'shots when the people concerned are in different footwear. I go back to the photo of Parker and Elvis which does show their true heights as they are barefooted, so we can discount the other photos such as the one with Jack Lord. Parker was 6ft and so it seems was Elvis. No footwear involved in this photograph. With the army documents, driving licence, gold suit measurements and the Ed Parker photo the evidence is overwhelming to support that Elvis was indeed a six foot male. I personally cannot change my view having met Ed Parker and seeing this 6ft male standing next to Elvis.. I don't think that I can add anymore, having seen other 6ft males on this site with little evidence supporting their height I fail to see why Elvis is now not upgraded to 6ft. Thank you
Mike 2 said on 19/Jun/15
Click Here This shows the measurements relating to the gold lame suit and as you can see it mentions Elvis' height without shoes. Again it's 6ft.
Steve said on 18/Jun/15
Just because someone claims Ed Parker was 6' doesn't mean it was true. I've been told people's heights, only to discover it was inflated. I have a friend who swears he's 6'2" yet it's obvious he's barely 5'11".

Elvis was no taller than Milton Berle. Berle was considerably shorter than Basil Rathbone. And Rathbone was two inches shorter than Red Skelton!
Steve said on 18/Jun/15

Lord was 6'1" because he was an inch shorter than Sean Connery in Dr. No.

Click Here Hi GX79, I'm very well thanks, please cut and paste the above, it's the best I can do. Steve, Ed Parker is the grey haired male on Elvis' right and having met him I can confirm is 6ft tall. I have spent 33 years taking people's height and so i am quite interested in the subject as well as being an Elvis fan for over 50 years, which is how I met Ed Parker. I am very good at estimating peoples height and sometimes people say that they are shorter than they really are! I closely studied Ed Parker in order to compare his height to Elvis', and this is why I am certain that the 6ft readings are accurate. I do appreciate how photos can distort people's height, however if you are able to see this photo you can see that Elvis and Ed Parker are standing shoulder to shoulder, barefooted which helps to make a very good comparison with someone who is also listed as being 6ft tall (Parker), together with my own assessment following the time I met him.I hope this helps.
clive said on 17/Jun/15
i have read many books by linda thompson his girfriend before he died andnshe was 5ft 9 she said elvis was 6ft 1 i think i agree with her that he was 6ft 1 more than 5'11.75 because as people have said he is slighty taller than ed parker who was 6ft
cathy said on 17/Jun/15
rob if as other people have asserted that elvis was a fraction taller than ed parker who was 6ft then surely elvis was taller than your listing of 5'11.75 i am aware he did wear platform lifts in the 1970s but i think elvis was most likely 6'1 do you think an upgrade to 6'1 is possible?
[Editor Rob: not when he's been measured around 6ft]

Then Milton Berle was a tad over six feet. And Basil Rathbone was at least 6'3".

I don't buy that Elvis was any more than 5'11". He wore lifts starting in the 1960's. Anyone a tad over 6' doesn't need to wear them.

That isn't Ed Parker with Elvis Steve.The photo being referred to by jboliver is a group shot with Master Ed Parker standing on Elvis' right and Linda Thompson to his left. You can see that both Elvis and Ed are barefooted and I think that Elvis is just a tad taller out the two, which is repeated in their many photographs together, both with and without shoes. As I have mentioned I have met Ed Parker and believe him to be six foot for reasons I have already covered which is why I am therefore positive that Elvis was at least 6 feet tall and probably a tad over in bare feet .

Mike 2 said on 6/Jun/15
I met Ed Patket and have previously mentioned it as I have seen a photo of Ed and Elvis, both in bare feet. I am 6ft 1in tall and I was wearing training shoes when I was standing next to him. Ed was wearing black leather shoes with small heel and I was eye to eye with him, so Ed was definitely 6 ft tall as had been stated which is why I think Elvis should be upgraded to 6ft, especially when we have documentation referring to a measurement as being 6ft without shoes.Personally I think Elvis was just slightly taller than Ed Parker
Gx79 said on 6/Jun/15
Ed Parker was 6'0 maybe 6'1

someone here know how tall was Ed Parker ? He worked for Elvis as a body guard .
He and Elvis are the same height .
If you goes to the site Elvis collector .com
There is a pic of Elvis and some guys in the Ed parke karate school in Pasadena in 1973 .
I try to find out Ed park height , in some site says he is 6feet .
He and Elvis are the same height .
For this pic Elvis is 6'
Steve said on 3/Jun/15
Then Milton Berle was 6'. That means so was Jerry Lewis. Seeing Lewis was three inches shorter than Fred Clark in Visit to a Small Planet, Clark had to be 6'3". If Clark was 6'3" then so was Roger Smith, both seen in Auntie Mame. Which means Henry Branden must have ben 6'6" because he towered over both actors. Gee, that means John Wayne was also 6'6" because he and Brandon were the same height in The Searchers. I think all these actors need a two inch upgrade!
Mike 2 said on 3/Jun/15
You can view his measurements online for the gold lame suit and it states height without shoes and then in brackets, in stocking feet - 6 ft. This is quite significant as it is clearly stating that this height was taken when Elvis wasn't wearing shoes, so adds yet even more evidence to the 6ft argument irrespective of the army measurements!
Steve said on 2/Jun/15
No, we don't all agree. At least I don't.

I think we all agree that his army height wasn't two inches out like Ladd and Power, and that he was very close to the six foot mark either a tad under or over, and the army then rounded it up or down. There have been many friends of Elvis who claim both heights so who do we believe? It will never be proven so all we can go on are the official documents which none of us are disputing are out by much, and so this is why Elvis has been and will always be a six foot male.
Steve said on 31/May/15
We are told lots of things by official records. Many are proven to be not true.

The Marine Corp officially listed Tyrone Power as being 6'. He wasn't. More like 5'10".

The Army enlistment record had Alan Ladd standing 5'7". We all know that was far from being accurate. He was more like 5'5".
Mike 2 said on 30/May/15
You can view online the discharge report for Elvis, dated 11February 1960 and the army is still stating Elvis to be 6 ft!
Elvis will always be classed as a 6ft person due to official records and also because he most probably was that height.
MJKoP said on 30/May/15
I was watching the British series "Autopsy: The Last Hours of..." and apparently his autopsy listed him as 5'11". But, as most of us know on here, most of these "official" reports aren't 100% reliable.

Your link at the top of the page clicks to 6 Army records, 5 of which state Elvis was 6 feet tall. Yet the site admin on here chooses to go with the one report which states Elvis was just under 6 feet. Bit mean-spirited don't you think?
[Editor Rob: I'm going with the fact that Elvis has been seen to have been measured in boots At 6ft 1/2 inch. He could be 5ft 11.5 without footwear, mean-spirited might be giving him 5ft 11 and saying the boots were 1.5 inches.]

Rob if 6'0.5" was with boots on and you have the proof of it I don't understand why you still keep him at 5'11.75"? All kinds of boots give at least 1" I think almost 6' is a more than optimistic for him!
5'11.25-11.5" would be much better!

5'11" was still on the tall side. He was the same height as 5'11" Robert Wagner.

katrina , unfortunately i think Elvis was 5'11'
as Steve said . if he was 6 ' why he is the same height of Milton Berle in the program in 1956 ?
do you have some picss of Elvis with Red west before his army days ?
i think that Steve is right . after the army he started using boots .
katrina said on 23/May/15
rob i have read lots of old newspaper articles from 1970s about elvis and they say he was 6'1, he i know was measured as 6'0 in the army but is it possible he could have reached 6'1 linda thompson said he was 6'1
[Editor Rob: I believe the almost 6ft more than over 6ft.]

Rob can you add a photo for Elvis and think about adding Pat Boone? He really ought to have a page. Can't you remember him in Journey to the Center of the Earth? Odd but he looks in 6' range there was in Journey I think he looked around 5'9.5-5'10 range with James Mason. 5'9 might be too low for Boone.

Yea for sure Elvis wasn't' with it' during the 70s.. He used most of those guns as a remote to literally turn off the Tv for good if he didn't like something on it.! Boom! The guy was a legend. And even if nearer 5.11 than 6 foot... A pretty tall legend at that too, and doubtful had he lived would be looking at this site like the rest of us short arses.
Steve said on 21/Apr/15
Maybe he meant when wearing shoes.
TJ said on 20/Apr/15
Elvis claimed "an even 6ft" in the 1950s, even when the publicity machine sometimes claimed taller. He was perhaps a little less "with it" at times when he said things in the '70s.
Steve said on 20/Apr/15
Yes, some photos can be misleading. But we have hundreds of photos available. And videos.

Elvis claiming to be 6'1" is meanigless since almost everyone, especially celebrities, exagerate their height. But I do believe Elvis was on the thin side. At least until he ballooned out.

I'd say he was 5'11" and 165.

TJ said on 18/Apr/15
Photos are frequently misleading though Steve. There are examples on this very site where Rob has more than one pic of himself with a celeb and the height difference doesn't look the same in both. For all the pics where Elvis looks more 5'11, there are also pics where he looks a comfortable 6ft. Take this one with 5'6 Gary Player:
Click Here

The posture of both doesn't make it easy to judge, but I don't think anyone would be surprised if there was a 6 inch difference.
Steve said on 17/Apr/15
The excuses are amusing such as photos prove nothing. Well neither do people saying he's 6' or more just because they believe the official line. I believe he was 5'11". Never under or over.
TJ said on 16/Apr/15
Hi Jboliver. My opinion has been the same for ages. I think that Elvis likely hit 6ft out of bed or even a tiny bit over and went down to 5ft 11.5 or maybe even a little under later in the day. I think that the 5'11.5 and 153 pounds stats on the driving licence that he had issued aged 17 were likely what Elvis knew himself to be from being measured and weighed. If exaggerating, you would expect him to have claimed the extra half inch to reach the 6ft. Over the next 2 or 3 years, maybe he gained that little extra so that he was 6ft for parts of the day. Hard to be certain. Lots of the 1955 and 1956 pics of Elvis backstage with other stars feature people in cowboy gear, including cowboy boots, so Elvis would tend to be at a disadvantage there. The two pics with Cash are a good example of that, with Elvis looking nearer Cash's height in one than the other.
TJ said on 16/Apr/15
The Jimmy Dean comparison has been raised before. Here's what I said a few months ago...

Dean looks to be around 4 inches taller, probably with a cowboy boot footwear advantage, at least in the earlier photo. I don't know how exact Dean's 6'3 is though. Look how comfortably taller a slouching Dean looks compared to Buck Owens, who was apparently 6ft (and looks it in pics with Cash):
Click Here

Looks a very strong 6'3 if Owens really was 6'0.
jboliver said on 16/Apr/15
Steve i saw the pic that you posted of Elvis and jimmy dean
how tall do you think Elvis is ?
Sam said on 16/Apr/15
IMO, this listing is a good fit for Presley.
Patrick said on 15/Apr/15
I think a lot of pics on this site showing various people next to others supposedly taller or shorter than them can possibly still be slightly inaccurate. For example there are a couple of photos of Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash together and one has Cash quite a bit taller than Presley yet it is believed Johnny had high cowboy boots on. Now granted Cash was a tall guy but probably only slightly taller than Elvis if they both had flat footwear on. In the early days Elvis did wear very flat shoes so I guess most other guys especially on the Country circuit obviously would seem quite a bit taller than him when in concert wear ie cowboy boots or 2 or 3 inch Cuban heels. I think again the fact Military and medical forms state Elvis Presley at around 6 foot tall should be accepted as exactly that and accurate. let's face it also, most people short or tall always round up their height to the nearest and don't often mention the half or 3 qaurtet inch!. Therefore if Elvis Presley was around 5 feet 11/ 5 feet 11.75 ? That's as good as 6 foot as anyone's going to be as doubtful many ,not only Rock n Roll stars are Bang on 6 foot tall anyway in life.

Army Records say that Elvis was 6 feet (183 cm) tall.
Patrick said on 13/Apr/15
I have also recently been to an exhibition in London at the O2 with artefacts from Graceland. On Elvis Presleys Army issued Driving licence it states clearly that he was 6 feet tall and even lists his weight in 1958 as only 180 pounds. it's obvious from quite a lot of footage available online or wherever that Elvis was not a short man and had long arms and legs, the dude looked a regular clothes horse, and was for the most part of his short life a very lean and lanky guy. A particular good example of his height being a six footer is the famous 1968 television show. Elvis does not appear to have much of a heel on his shoes throughout that event, yet seems to be exactly the height that the people that knew him, and indeed medical and important documents stated him to be in size.

Steve said on 9/Apr/15
I believe Lawford was 6' even. He and JFK were the same height. Lawford was taller than Dean Martin. Just how much taller depended on whether or not Dean was wearing lifts. Lawford was at most two inches talker than Martin.

Lawford had a bad right arm which was caused by an injury when he was a boy. He accidentally walked into a plate glass door which nearly severed his arm. He never fully regained use of it. And it appeared slightly withered. But he hid it brilliantly.
Steve said on 9/Apr/15
Berle didn't wear lifts. Just look at his shoes in countless videos. He was 5'10". Same height as Bob Hope in his prime.

Peter Lawford was around 6'. He and JFK were the same height. Lawford never wore lifts. There's loads of photos to study as well as films. He was two inches taller than Berle and about the same next to Dean Martin who did wear lifts. They can easily be spotted.
TJ said on 9/Apr/15
Also worth noting that Lawford seems to manage to look the same height, smaller and taller than Berle all in one video here - Click Here
Posture and camera angles playing a role again, as they perhaps also did with Elvis.
TJ said on 9/Apr/15
Lawford is in the 6ft range I think Jboliver, but can look shorter or taller. Confusing guy.
Jboliver said on 8/Apr/15
Steve how tall is peter lawford ????
TJ said on 8/Apr/15
The pics with Elvis and Berle sometimes show them very similar in height and other times with Elvis around an inch taller. Depends on posture and angle I guess. Elvis was a bit of a sloucher back in the day - full of rock 'n' roll cool. :-) Not sure how you can know for sure whether or not Berle wore lifts. I'm not suggesting huge heels of course, but plenty of stars would have worn a small lift inside for a boost and they aren't easy to spot.

The Lawford pic might muddy the water as that guy's height seemed up and down against the likes of Dean Martin. Lawford either had very variable posture or there were lifts involved with either him or Martin at times.

182-183cm is the lowest I would go for him. 183cm is the better shout. He was probably 6'0 most parts of the day and during the later parts on rare occasions might dip few mm under. Don't know about 6'1 but you could argue 184-185 as out of bed height.
Art said on 3/Apr/15
In my personal opinion, he was 6' even. The reson that he looked taller is, because he has long legs.My brother is 6 feet, & looks taller. Why ? Also he has long legs.

Lockstep, do you know where you saw the photo of Elvis and Linda Thompson? Also there is a journalist who met Elvis from the start of his career and she stated that when she met Elvis after he had joined up she saw a slimmer and taller Elvis, so perhaps he did grow after starting his national service.
Carl said on 21/Mar/15
Wow Steve or Stevo is all over this website and seems to be the one whom wants to be the person with the final word on most celebrities of the last 50 years lol. :-) It's amusing to see how many people on here have become obsessed with photographs and use ones that are the least flattering as proof to validate their claim. The reality is here that I've seen photos of Elvis standing next to men of 6ft 2ins like Sonny West his body guard and are of similar height. Photos never prove a thing. As for Billy Stanley I think he when he was questioned if it was really himself, well, enough said, it's childish. The FACTS ARE THE FACTS ELVIS WAS 6FT end of story. Cue Steve... !
Mike F said on 20/Mar/15
I do recall reading Ian Bailey's account when he met Elvis backstage in 1972 with the British fan club. Many photos exist of this meeting when Elvis is standing in the middle of the group, next to Todd Slaughter, with Ian behind ( who has a moustache). Ian stated that he himself is 5ft 10ins tall but with his shoes on, which at that time had two inch heels, put him at 6ft. He was surprised that Elvis was still taller and so checked out his shoes, which were low healed loafers, which I believe were a favourite of his. It is still very difficult to guess someone's height even when you are next to them. i have measured people's height for decades and although i can usually guess correctly, i am sometimes out by an inch. I therefore believe that it is virtually impossible to gauge a person's height from photos etc. I don't think Elvis had an issue with his own height as there is plenty of footage around of him barefooted, such as Blue Hawaii and the Karate film in 1974, when he can be seen wearing boots as well as being barefooted, or with socks on, and you see Kang Rhee taking Elvis's sock off to show the crowd his ingrowing toenail.In this film he does appear to be two inches taller than 5ft 10ins Superfoot Bill Wallace,and certainly comes across as a tall male whilst barefooted.Even his girlfriends don't seem to have had an issue as Linda Thompson has apparently quoted 6ft 1ins and Ginger Alden made reference to his Army height of 5ft 11ins, and of course we all know that most of his army records show 6ft. It obviously wasn't an issue to them or Elvis, and looking at the difference between 5ft 11 3/4 and 6ft, perhaps we need to get out more!! Have a good Easter !
Steve said on 19/Mar/15
Lockstep, you make a great point. His height doesn't really matter. His talent made him a star.
Lockstck said on 19/Mar/15
Another dimension that every one has overlooked. When did he stop growing? 1958 would put him at 23and 25 when he was discharged. I am 6-3" and didn't stop growing 'till I was 26 years old. There are pictures of Elvis with Linda Thompson in hospital where Elvis is in his bare feet and stood with her. She was tall 5-9" and he's a good 3" taller than her. So maybe he did end up being 6ft.
Lockstock said on 19/Mar/15
Hi Folks, ( Norfolk UK) I am with Steve on this one, as much as it pains me, I think he was a tad under 6ft. In an early radio interview he is asked his height and replies " An even 6ft, Sir" to which Scotty Moore says " Are you?" or words to that effect ( In disbelief) Anyway, the interviewer says, " You are a tall boy, much taller than I expected". Todd Slaughter also said that Elvis was tall, as did Billy Fury. When you see him in videos with Buddy Holly, he looks slightly shorter than him and also shorter than Johnny Cash, who was supposed to be 6'-2". The picture with Ali where they look to be in a lift, Elvis looks well pi55ed off and Ali looks a good 5 or 6" taller than Elvis, then there's another picture where Elvis is in a Karate stance and Ali in a boxing stance, once again , Ali looks much taller. I take on board what Carl says about images. But when you go to videos you get a better perspective. Who was the Flunky in Jailhouse Rock, he looked quite a rotunda chap and Elvis didn't look much taller than him? The thing with Elvis, if you look where his shoulders finish you would put him at a man of 5-10" but he had a long head and that makes the difference in my opinion. At the end of the day, what the fcuk does it matter, he was the greatest entertainer that shall ever grace this earth and came across as a thoroughly nice man to boot. So sad he lost his way in his latter years. I listen to the guy just about every day and I thank heaven I was around on his shift.
NewsFlash said on 16/Mar/15
I wouldn't believe Elvis' stepbrother.

In one interview (I watched on youtube) from the 80s, I heard Elvis' stepbrother admit that he had lied previously on a controversial subject (Elvis' drug issue), and did so to avoid negative publicity on the Legend.

So willing to believe anyone else, even Pinocchio, but not Elvis' stepbrother's claim that "Elvis was indeed 6 feet tall".
Steve said on 15/Mar/15
5'11" is not average. Especially when Elvis was alive.

If he was 6', please explain why he was three inches shorter than 6'1" actor Jack Lord? Lord was an inch shorter than Sean Connery in Dr. No.

Why in The Trouble with Girls was he several inches shorter than actor Edward Andrews who was reportedly 6'2"?

Andrews was around 6'2" because he and James Garner were the exact same height in The Thrill of it All.

And Andrews was at least two inches shorter than Rock Hudson in Send Me No Flowers. In some angles he looked three inches shorter.

And Andrews was two inches shorter than 6'4" Leif Erickson in Tea and Sympathy.

And why was Elvis the same height as Milton Berle? If Berle was six feet then we have to elevate a lot of people who were taller than him.

Mike F said on 12/Mar/15
I can't believe that we seem to accept people's opinions, or their brief meetings with Elvis when claiming his height to be under 6 feet, but then when we have his very own step brother, who was with Elvis for 17 years tell us that Elvis was indeed 6 feet tall, he is simply written off as being an imposter!. I think that this is very disrespectful and no wonder that Billy has given up! All I can say to you is, what if it really is Billy, would you be prepared to accept his word, or would you pick another excuse out of the sky. I have been an Elvis fan for over 50 years and so i didn't have to ask Billy whether he had ever met Elvis, because I have studied everything about Elvis, not just his height, and believe me Billy said many things in his text which i picked up on and I am absolutely positive that it really is the brother (step) of Elvis, and we should be grateful for his input. If Billy's comments together with official documentation are not enough evidence for us then we are wasting our time. The documentation alone should put Elvis at 6 feet and then we should be able to argue against this. To me we seem to have it the wrong way round, and anyone who backs up the 6 ft height is just shot down without good reason.
ElvisInGermany said on 11/Mar/15
My mother met him when he served military time in Bad Nauheim in Germany (Bad means Bath).
He was standing right next to her, looking at posters outside a movie theater - the town was pretty boring at night. She says he was just a little taller than me (her son). I'm 176,5 cm (5'9.5). According to her, Elvis was between 179 cm (5'10.5) and 181 cm (5'11.3). HOW COULD SHE TELL? She has three brothers (5'11, 6'1 and 6'4). She says, Elvis was around the height of her youngest brother but never as tall as her middle one. BY THE WAY: Most men interested in the King's height are under the magic number of 6', I bet (like me). In Germany the magic frontier is 180 cm (to be considered tall) which is 5' 11.5. The average german male today is 5'11 compared to U.S. males 5'10.5. Elvis was tall at the time (1958 in Germany people where smaller then). Hope I could shed a light on the subject. Long live the King! He wasn't 6' but still the greatest!
Steve said on 1/Mar/15
TJ, you bring up a interesting point. No one is exactly spot-on a specific height if that height is to the foot. Take me. I'm about 5'9" plus maybe three-tenths of an inch. But that's in the morning out of bed. During the day, my spine compresses to where I end up around 5'9" plus a tenth of an inch.

And shoes make a big difference. If a person wears cowboy boots with 2" heels, and another who's roughly the same height is wearing deck shoes that only gains them perhaps half an inch, the person wearing the boots will seem much taller.

Elvis wore a variaty of shoes and boots. Some that to me look highly suspicios. The angle of the front of his foot tells the tail.

I think Elvis was roughly 5'11" out of bed. But with boots with 2" heels and a lift inside he could easily pull off well over 6'. Maybe as much as 6'2".

Bottom line is Elvis was taller than the average man.
Steve said on 1/Mar/15
TJ, I based Edward Andrews's height on what's officially listed. He looked 6'2" in his movies. Of course peoplecaren't exactly a specific height.

And I don't believe that's really Bill Stanley.
Steve said on 28/Feb/15
Can anyone explain why Elvis and Pat Boone appeared to be the same height? I saw some photos of the two standing next to one another. Both look the same. And Boone is no more than 5'10".
Billy Stanley said on 27/Feb/15
With great respect to you all on here my friends films, photos, camera angles can all make us all look taller shorter fatter or thinner. But if you actually look back at all the records on Elvis over the years even when he started out proper on the Lousiana Hayride they actually billed him at 6ft 2ins and other times 6ft 1ins. All I can I say from my own point of view on a daily basis and spending 17 years with the man he was the same height as my brother Ricky at 6ft. Elvis even used to say his height on stage many times when Charlie Hodge whom was only 5ft 3ins used to adjust Elvis's Mike for his guitar on his solo sometimes on 'Are You Lonesome Tonight', Sometimes Charlie would get the mike height wrong and Elvis would joke with Charlie alittle on stage and tease him and say 'Hell Charlie I'm over 6ft and you've put the mike down to your height' but it was all just great fun and Elvis loved Charlie a lot, they were great friends. Actually on stage with his boots on Elvis always looked tall and the king. He was the most wonderful man next to Jesus Christ. I miss him everyday. Hope this all helps here but just to finish here in my opinion Elvis was 6ft and that's the least I would say he was as I seem to always remember him and my stepdaddy Vernon over 6ft.
Steve said on 26/Feb/15
Billy, did you ever meet Elvis?

Please explain why in The Trouble with Girls he was over three inches shorter than 6'2" Edward Andrews. Watch the film. Elvis is considerably shorter.
Mike F said on 26/Feb/15
Well said Billy, I have been hoping for ages that someone close to Elvis would tell us the true height of Elvis. I met Ricky in the UK many years ago and he seemed pretty tall too
Did Elvis ever comment on his height to you during the many years that you were with him?
Rob, don't you think that it's time to put Elvis back to 6ft?
Surely Billy's comments have real authority, us Elvis fans are fully aware of the closeness Elvis and his step brothers were.
Billy Stanley said on 26/Feb/15
I also would like to state for the record here there is no way in hell Elvis was lost any height when he passed away at just 42 years old. Ridiculous that anybody could assume any human could loose height at that age apart from serious medical problems. I spent almost everyday with the man and I will tell you I always looked upto him not just as my big brother but because he was a tall man of 6ft. My stepdaddy Vernon his father Vernon was a big tall man too so was his Grandmother Minnie Mae, that lady was stick thin and very tall lady too. So just to put all this rubbish to rest, Elvis the man was 6ft tall. How I know this is I was with him for 17 years almost daily. He was the King but he was my brother and with dam big long feet.:-) TCB Billy
Arch Stanton said on 26/Feb/15
Rob can you add Wendell Corey and Lizabeth Scott then? I think 6'1.5 for Corey is honest.
Arch Stanton said on 26/Feb/15
Corey looks a shade taller than Mitchum, I say the 6'1.5 is legit. Elvis would have had to been nearer a flat 5'11 then?
Arch Stanton said on 26/Feb/15
Elvis had to be shorter then Steve as there's definitely not just 1.5 inches between them.. I think he looked an honest 6'1.5.
Billy Stanley said on 25/Feb/15
I've been to Graceland many times, saw all his costumes and his clothing and his wedding tuxedo demonstrated completely this was a tall man of six foot. Clothing cannot be used as references to a persons height but solid evidence supports that Elvis was 6ft and that's fact. He wore size 12D boots most of the time. He was mostly a very slim man for much of his life. His prime stats were 42chest, 32/32.5 leg n waist, neck 15-16. End of story. PS: I was Elvis's stepbrother for 17 years until his death. My mum married his father. TCB Folks.
Steve said on 25/Feb/15
I believe he was over 5'10". Probably peak around 5'11".
Daveq said on 25/Feb/15
If you look at Elvis' jump suits on display at Graceland, there is no way he is over 5'10. In fact in his earlier years he must have been quite thin as the suits don't even look like he could fit in them - both in height and in girth as we remember him on TV.
