The tallest man I have actually seen standing before me was 6 foot 8. I've known four others who were 6 foot 7. So Crichton was one in hundreds of thousands.

I worked for a few weeks in a rural village in Mexico in the early seventies, and the villagers had no electricity, and consequently no television. Most of the people in that village had never been more than fifty miles from it. The Mexicans are short, and I am 6 foot 4, and the villagers stared at me as if I was a freak, which I kind of was, to them.

6'9 at least.

I think that photo was late 90s though and Connery looked more 6'1" range by then so 6 ft 9 is probably accurate.
Arch Stanton said on 10/Oct/14
Rob he looks nearer 6'10 with Conner and Cage doesn't he Click Here
Funny, he makes Connery look like a 5 ft 8 fella and Cage like 5 ft 6!

Rob, somehow "Back" got in there, I think ER without the dot is correct. Is there no photo you can use? That's a pity.
[Editor Rob: there is a photo but not really much to illustrate his height.]
Arch Stanton said on 9/Oct/14
Is there a tall photo of him or something which can be used? The one with Harrison Ford and Spielberg is good.

Rob you might want to update the US Author, best remembered for Jurassic Park, The Andromeda Strain, Disclosure and creating the NBC TV series E.R. Can you also update (remove) the Now he's a big guy, but that big???. If you g image him with Connery and Harrison Ford he really did look easily this. He looks 6'10 with Connery and Ford and looks a foot taller than Michael Douglas. He also looks at least a full head taller than Dennis Storhi who is listed at almost 6 ft.

I think he could have been 6ft9 or 6ft10. A very articulate and good looking man who left us far too early.
Arch Stanton said on 25/Nov/12
Rob, you indicate that you don't think he looks this big in your above comment with three question marks. Don't you think he looks this height next to Spielberg? Is it because he has also been listed at 6'7" or 6'8"?
[Editor Rob: not looked at this page or him for a few years, ]

Ive met this guy .I fought he was taller , looked like flat 210 cm to me

I think he also claimed 6 ft 10. Possible he was 6'10" morning height. But I think he just about looks a legitimate 6 ft 9. Clearly at least a foot on Spielberg and looks virtually a giant in that photo.

Might be taller than 6"9 but that's by looking at photos

It is Spielberg. Here's another take:

The angle seems tilted to the right, but even so, he's clearly every inch of 6'9".

always been a legit 6'9".

Na I don't think its Spielberg but Crichton's legs come up the chest of the guy next to him!!!

Boost the resolution size. Looks over a foot taller than anybody else in the picture here, although the camera angel is slightly in his favour. If it were level I still think all are below shoulder level so he's a least a foot taller. The second guy from him look s a bit like a younger Spielberg and perhaps 5'7"-5'8" range so it could be him. But I think he actually was that tall, he looks taller than 6'6"- 6'7" guys and I've heard stories of people getting a !!!!! giant alert whenever they saw him. Egghead glasses aside he was something of a handsome geek much like Jeff Goldblum.

I change my mind. Connery 6'1 , cage 5'10 and late crichton 6'8.75
LAN Jiao said on 25/Oct/11
Cage is 5'10. 6'1 in lift. Crichton is 6'8 and connery 6'0.5

I wonder why he's cited some places as being 6'7"?
Maggie said on 7/Apr/11
I once sat across from him in a restaurant,- he was dining alone. Even sitting, he had a looming presence.
Very handsome.
Bleemo said on 30/Jun/07
This guy is all over the shop I've read as low as 6'7" and sometimes 6'8", either way he is bloody huge.

6'8" claim here

I've met him, my uncle Charles "Chip" Kidd did the jacket design for Jurassic Park for him. I'm 6'10" and he's the only person I've ever met as tall as me. It felt nice to know tall people can be successful too.

Another tall author is William Gibson:
"I used to be something above 6-foot-5, but I think I've lost some height", in 1997.
Beverly said on 30/May/06
I've met him, stood next to him, and asked him. He's 6'9." I'm 5'9" and he towers over me.
J. said on 23/May/06
He says "I am 6'9" tall", in this interview: Click Here
J-Dog said on 4/May/06
He is a huge man, period.
Editor Rob said on 15/Apr/06
Another couple authors:
Scott Adams, "I'm 5'8", Harlan Ellison "I'm 5ft 5", J Michael Straczynski "I'm 6ft 5...maybe in shoes"

Elizabeth is right. MC was always listed at 6-10 in the 70's when Coma, and his other novels and movies appeared. He may be 6-9 now.

[Editor Rob: yeah the quote was "6ft 9...today", which maybe meant he lost some height]
elizabeth said on 12/Jun/05
he is 6'9". he's commonly listed at 6'10" in interviews and articles, but i guess he's 6'9" at his own admission. i'm a fan of his writing and was also incredulous that he was that tall, but when you look at him in pictures with other people, including actors who are supposedly 6'1" or 6'2" he is easily 6'9".
