Oh, I meant to add that Don Galloway was taller than 6'2".

Hollywood bios not only added inches to some celebrities' heights, they also subtracted them as well.

Bill Hopper, Paul Drake on the Mason show, was much taller than the sometimes 6'2" or 6'3" he's often listed as. He's closer to 6'4 or even taller. Thus, you have to adjust Burr's height accordingly if you're going to contrast the heights of the two.

My husband is 6'2" and met Burr in Viet Nam. Says he was either the same height or that Burr could have been a smidgen taller.

Canada's greatest actor! (Of course,it's just my opinion.) One cannot deny Raymond Burr as the DEFINITIVE Perry Mason,yet he was too forceful to be typecast just as Perry Mason. Raymond also scored great on Ironside,The Adventures Of Don Juan,Meet Danny Wilson,Godzilla,A Place In The Sun,and Rear Window,but even picking Burr's best movie is not easy,but he also did some westerns,but originally,he was going to be cast on Perry Mason as the victim! But my favorite Perry Mason star,shockingly,was "swing pitcher" Wesley Lau! (I even look a bit like Lau.) But Perry Mason lost some cases,but new evidence won him the cases. (The only real loss Perry suffered was when he bet on Bright Magic to win a big horse race,but he lost that race because he was doped! Shades of the 1968 Kentucky Derby scandal there!)

He looks noticeably shorter than 6'2" Don Galloway during the Ironside day.

I stood next to him in the mess hall at my Navy duty station during one of his tours for the USO to overseas bases. I was 6-foot one-and-a-half inches tall and well built. Mr. Burr seemed huge and I felt small. Obviously, there is no way to know if used lifts or had elevator shoes, etc. He did a lot for us servicemen and women.

I'd say you have this spot on, he didn't quite look 6'2" next to Lansbury.
Arch Stanton says on 24/Jul/13
Mmm looks more 6'1" actually next to a heeled Angela Lansbury who was around 5'8", only a few inches taller than her.
Arch Stanton says on 24/Jul/13
Looks 6'2 and around 215 pounds I'd say in the film I've watching. Well-built man, broad shouldered with a big chest. Doesn't look 6'!! If he wasn't a full 6'2" he was very close.

Burr was 6'0" at best. Too many people are taller than him in the old Perry Masons...and not that many people in the business were over 6'1.5" William Hopper--listed as 6'3"--has a good 3.5" inches on him in the show. Jim Davis, who was 6'2" and guest starred in an episode--was easily two inches taller than Burr. Not a chance that Burr was 6"1.5'.

In the right shoes, Burr could hit nearly 6'3", so it makes sense that he would look big in person. He was an all-around large dude.

I rode an elevator with him in a hotel in Toronto in the 80's and recognized him right away. I'm 5' 11", but felt he was significantly taller than me. Perhaps it was just because he was so huge, 300 lbs.?

"Paul Drake" on Perry Mason was always noticeably taller that Burr in all scenes, so much so if Burr was 6'2 or 3" then the Drake was very tall.

I forgot to add that this was during his Ironside days. Also, he rarely stood erect, seemed to drop his neck a bit, perhaps because he was so much taller than those around him and it was easier to talk to them that way.

I met him and stood next to him a very long time ago. I was/am 5'6" and was wearing approx. 3 inch heels and I'd say he was at least 6'2" based on my experience standing next to my husband who is 6 even.

If you look it up on Google it says 6'0"
