According to his co-star on the television series The Adventurer (1972-73)
Catherine Schell, Gene was about 5'9" and was sensitive about his lack of height.

He appeared to be two inches shorter than 6'1" Robert Mitchum in Thunder Road.

Here again,though,the November 24 "Bat Masterson" episode with the Sugar Smacks commercial did have two cough syrup commercials with coughing women.One was for Vicks Formula 44 cough disks.In this commercial,the coughing woman had a bad chest/head cold,but she had a hacking cough,which the Formula 44 cough disk calmed after she took it.In the other one,the coughing woman had the flu and bronchitis,which calmed down after she took Vicks Formula 44-D for her nagging bronchial cough spasm.

Liked him on "Bat Masterson," even last Nov.24 catching an old Kellogg's Sugar Smacks commercial in which Quick Draw Mc.Graw said,"Must be one of them Washington Redskins!"

Gene was just 6 feet tall. I worked with him in the sixties and again in the eighties..it was his ears that drove him nuts. "Dont shoot both ears", this was his mantra, and he wanted to re-voice everything so he could use the lowest possible register in his voice, close to the mike, almost sotto voce. No way you could shoot with it that close without seeing the boom shadow.

A driver's license means nothing. Many people list optimistic heights and get away with it since most DMVs do not check it. In fact the people at my DMV are so brain-dead I could be 5'2", put down 6' and they wouldn't blink an eye. Something to do with having a job where it's almost impossible to be fired.

Well, when I met Barry he was only slightly taller than me, about the same difference as when I met Elvis. And Peter Falk never stands up straight. I saw Peter for years when I worked at Universal. Sometimes he looked like he was 5'3" from being so slouched. I could always tell where he was in the editing building since he smoked the foulest smelling cigars imaginable. Back then almost everyone smoked and smoked indoors, but Peter's cigars were strong enough to blanket all the other odors.

And I'd like to see Elvis's recorded height while in the army. Do you know where I can see the official document?

I lose about a quarter of an inch by the time I retire to bed.

Gene was just shy of six feet. I met him and he wasn't hardly that much taller than me. But Rob just emailed me after I sent him a few more shots of me with various people and he suggested that I re-measure myself.....at night!

Gene Barry evokes memories of Black & White TV with OVAL screens, Episodes of "Bat Masterson" and "Burke's Law", and the clicking knobb of the channel changer... I faintly recall a very funny "Burkes Law" episode in which Gene Barry and Cantinflas (Mario Moreno Reyes) were togethere. Cantinflas was about 5'6" and topped out at Genes eye level, so 6'0" for Gene Barry looks pretty close.
