Peter was a strong 6' 3", similar to Gary Cooper. I agree with the comparisons previously given with Leslie Nielsen and James Drury. Pictures with his brother Jim Arness are sometimes very misleading, I am yet to see one that shows an accurate height comparison between them as adults. Also when aged in their late 50's and beyond, Jim may have lost more height than Peter did.

He looks about 2" taller than Neilsen in airplane. Strong 6'3 sounds right for Graves

No Sam that would probabably make him 6ft2,he looked 6ft2.5 here Click Here next to a 6ft3.5 guy,and Peter was probabobly 6ft3.5 like that guy,also in Charade he looked very close in height with 6ft4 listed George Kennedy,maybe half an inch shorter

That would make Bud Spencer 6'1.5"? Graves was for sure a solid 6'3" guy, he could have been 6'3.5"...he was not towered by his brother.

Tall man, yes. 6'5" as he claims? No way. Just saw him in 1956's IT CONQUERED THE WORLD, an obscure but interesting B sci-fi film co-starring Western legend Lee Van Cleef. 6'3" is spot-on, Rob--there are several scenes in which Graves stands face-to-face with strong 6'2" Van Cleef. Graves is a hair taller--the difference is about 1/2"--than Van Cleef, but it's noticeable enough, and both men are wearing dress shoes with like heels. Even towards the end of his life, he looks like he kept most of his height. In his prime, Graves was an easy 6'3".

He might have given himself an upgrade since his brother James Arness was a little taller. He does look less than 2 inches shorter than his bigger bro, however.

This guy could have been 6'4" in his youth, he seemed near 3 inches taller than Leslie Nielsen in Airplane!, almost by the same margin that George Kennedy had over Nielsen. Also, Clint Walker was really 6'6", being noticeably taller than Rock Hudson & everyone else in The Dirty Dozen.

I was just watching a movie he was in with Clint Walker called Scream of the Wolf. If Walker is 6`5 then Graves is probably 6`2-6`3 at the most

I was a cook at Howard Johnsons Restaurant in the early 80's. Peter Graves came in for dinner. I cooked his food and the waitress said he wanted to meet me.He was probably shocked a woman cooked his meal...not sure. When I met him I was amazed at how tall he was...definitely over 6'2"...more like 6'5"!! I am 5'8" and 6'2" doesn't make me go "wow, he's tall"

We sat and chatted for about 20 minutes or so.He was a very nice man.

6'5"! Is he freaking insane? Or I should say WAS he freaking insane? He's clearly shorter than 6'4" Peter Lupus on Mission: Impossible, and not much, if any, taller than 6'2" Gregg Morris from the same series.
