I think he was 5ft6-5ft6.5...he looked 5in/12,5cm shorter than Elvis the pelvis, who was between 5ft11 and 5ft11.5!

What about Paul Anka then?
Can you see him as a strong 5'5, Rob?

Although known more for his baritone voice, Sinatra was a hell of an actor. My favorites are The Manchurian Candidate, Suddenly, both taking out of ciculation after the assasination of JFK and From Here to Eternity. As for his peak height, I think this is a pretty good listing.

Posted this before, but the army measured him at 169 cm.
[Editor Rob: what is the reference for this, it would be of great use to discover it! I have a quote from a biographer I'm going to add about his height...]

Robby D, you also say Sinatra was the same height as Gene Kelly, but in On The Town I think when level he looks a bit taller. He was also only about an inch shorter than Brando. I can't see him under this.

I saw the movie "Oceans Eleven" last week and Frank Sinatra was standing eye to eye with Angie Dickenson who is listed as 5'5" in height and she looked a tad taller than him. Granted she was wearing heels but they were not very high and Sinatra was wearing dress shoes with a heel of about an inch. On that basis I would say he was 5'7" maximum.
Arch Stanton says on 26/Dec/13
Looks at least this next a heeled Grace Kelly in High Society, his footwear looks normal, unlike Bing's...

Who was the super short guy in Guys and Dolls? I'd guess he was 5 ft flat tops. Sinatra looked about 8 inches taller!!
Arch Stanton says on 24/Dec/13
Spot on. Barely an inch taller than Brando in Guys and Dolls who was around 174cm I think.

Would have placed him around 5'8" - actually no shorter than that. There's a very good image on the Laurence Harvey W iki pedia page that shows both in long shot (can't link to it because it apparently is identified as s pam on this website)
but Sinatra kinda looks around 5/8" next to 6'1" Harvey.

I looked at his footwear in his earlier films and they didn't look suspicious. H was extremely thin in the 40s and 50s like 120 pounds max. In the Manchurian Candidate he looks about 20 pounds heavier and more a decent sort of weight. He had such a tremendous aura about him which is extremely rare. It's in his eyes, he was one guy in a million for sure.
Brad says on 8/Aug/13
As listed. Built up footwear the norm.
Ian C. says on 28/Jul/13
I recall a biography of Sinatra that reprinted his U.S. Army draftboard assessment, in which he was listed at 5 foot 7.
Maio says on 23/Jul/13
I guess he was 5 ft 7 in/170 cm.
Sam says on 16/Jul/13
Looked around as listed next to 6'1" Cary Grant:

Frank Sinatra was around 5ft 7 - 5ft 8. But he was never called Frank's 5ft 9in ever. Though I don't think he was even measured. He has been said to be just at 5'7 1/2" tall, IMO. He is a rather small guy, enough said.
Rob Bryant says on 3/Feb/13
I saw Frank at the Ali / Norton rematch at the Forum in the early 70's. 5'-7" would be a good estimate of his height. I have to say he was honest. Check it out all of these short actors that were Frank's height or shorter have themselves listed at 5'-9".
Will says on 29/Jan/13
Frank Sinatra was short. So stating his height as 5ft 7 would be called appropriate. 'Cause 5ft 7 is short.

5'7 , 120 pounds. Tiny man with a big voice
Matt says on 11/Nov/12
Always seemed a tad bit shorter than Gene Kelly in Anchors Aweigh. BUT sometimes they evened up in height...I guess because Sinatra had a smaller frame...Hm..might have to watch that movie again.

Lancaster was 6'1", Clift, 5'10", Borgnine, 5'10"-5'11". Sinatra was 5'7" and his thin build made him look even smaller.
