I thought he was over 6ft from watching Austin Powers. Mike Myers made him look tall...

Naa in some others scenes the diff actually looks more 1.5-2 inches when they're stood side by side with similar posture, 5'10.5 is OK.

It does look a little over 2 inches, Bogarde of course is a confirmed 5'8.5. I think you could argue the 180 peak for York, but this is close.

Rob can you add a photo and add Accident, Alfred the Great and The Three Musketeers? in Accident from 1967 honestly he looks just about 5 ft 11 with Drk Bogarde.

Looks 5'9 with Josh Radnor in HIMYM episode but looks every bit of 5'10 in sword of the Gideon with Avner's actor. Speilberg didn't even credit that movie.

He can look 6ft in The Taming of the Shrew too.

In murder on the orient express he oddly looks 3-4 inches taller than Albert Finney.

Saw him at a screening. This is right.

Rob can you add "known for films like Cabaret, The Island of Dr. Moreau, and the Austin Powers films"
[Editor Rob: yeah, I will add a few more to his description...]

Looks near 5 ft 11 in Cabaret which with a skinny frame makes him look tallish. 179cm peak looks fine.

Met him after a performance of Camelot yesterday -- very nice guy, and very accommodating to fans. I agree with Mr. R -- he's definitely not a shade over 5'10" -- I'd have said 5'9.5" at best.

As I mentioned, I saw Michael York last week, and he is not a shade over 5'10".

His agency CV lists him 180cm, 75kg. He may have shrunk a cm though ;)

Mr. R, it could very well have been possible! I am not quite in my early 20s just yet, but I definately wasn't quite the 6'1" than I am now, back then. It is indeed possibly that he seemed taller because I wasn't full grown at the time. I think the listing given Mr. York by the editor at the moment is fair.
Mr. R said on 11/Apr/05
Smoke, this is interesting. If you were still growing when you saw Mr. York, that means you must be in your early 20's yes? I am now in my early 40's, so when I saw him, I was fully grown. We both saw him about the same time. Could the fact that you were still growing play into our different perspectives? Just a thought.

I'm 6'1" and he seemed to be about 2 or 3 inches shorter than me when I met him, so 5'10"-5'11" is pretty well on the mark. I would give him 5'11" which is a pretty good height for a man, he's also a pretty nice guy as well.

Saw him at a screening of the film Cabaret. Usually listed at 6', but at best, he is 5'10"
