Editor Rob: I just seen a photo of Jim with a guy who used to be at conventions, he could still look close to 5ft 9 in 70's with him...

He seems to have aged very well, not lost much height at all. I would rule out a full 5 ft 10 with Phil Silvers, though he could often pull off looking that and I'm sure did clear it out of bed in his prime.

Jim Dale was exactly 5'9" at his peak.

Yes, I think 177 looks the most accurate. At times he could really look close to 5 ft 10, looked nearer that than 5 ft 9 a lot. 5'9.5 I think is the fairest, 175 definitely seemed too low.

Rob did he once have a 5'9 listing in an old book or something? 176 looks spot on with Phil Silvers but with the others I'm leaning more on a 5'9.5 177. I think he looked taller than 5'9 flat anyway. Because there were so many short actors in that series Jim can pull off almost looking tallish at times!
Editor Rob: I've not seen a mention, but it could be likely he claimed 5ft 10.

5ft 9.5 peak may well be the safest bet for him...

Considering his age Dale has managed to retain his height well seemingly! I still think 5'9.5 peak would be fairer though but 176 is at least a compromise!

A full shot there and you can see footwear. Looks comfortably taller than Cumming to me, though Cumming might be nearer 5'9 flat.

Looks to have the edge even now on 5'9.5 Alan Cumming Click Here He's 81.
Editor Rob: Cumming at 5ft 9 is probably more believable.
Arch Stanton said on 24/Apr/17
Correct my guess to 5'9.5, been watching a few Carry On and he generally looks about 1.5 inches taller than Sid James. I think that would be spot on.

Click Here 50:12 - a 177 guess for Dale again looks right with Sid James I think.
Arch Stanton said on 23/Apr/17
Rob yeah see 1:28:11 Click Here definitely comfortably over two inches taller than Williams. I think something like 5'9.5 and Williams at 5'6.75 is possible, seems to fit more than 5'7 and 5'9 anyway. To me Dale looks around Delon's height, I'd give him 5'9.75.
Editor Rob: I'm not so sure, he was rising up on tip toes a bit in that final scene, but there may well be 2.5 inches.

Click Here Looked 5'10 ish with Kenneth Williams though a bit a nearer the camera. Looking at him in sandals, even footwear with 5'2.5 Kenneth O'Connor in Carry on Cleo maybe 177 is possible. I can't see him under 5'9.5 anyway, but that figure might be possible. 175 looks too low.
Arch Stanton said on 23/Apr/17
Click Here I think he was barefoot in that scene but so might have James been. With Sid James in another film Click Here I'd guess more 5'9.5-5'10 range, maybe 5'9.75.
Arch Stanton said on 23/Apr/17
Rob, not sure he looked this low. He had a good 2 inches on Sid James and 3 inches on Hawtrey in Carry On Again Doctor and I think he was barefoot as well and them in shoes! There's a scene in which he's in his dressing gown. I would have thought around 5 ft 10 might be more accurate but might be wrong, I'd need to see more of him.
Editor Rob: 5ft 9 and change might be ok for him, I wouldn't have thought a big 5ft 10 guy though.
