I once met Ringo's good friend Harry Nilsson,I'm 6' tall and Harry was 6'2" just like his Biography says so compare photos of Harry to Ringo,John,Paul + George.

He really looks about the same age as a few guys I know in 55-60 age group!

Rob can you add a photo? Have you noticed that this guy doesn't seem to age?
I just noticed that he's an astounding 75 now!! Click Here No wrinkles whatsoever!! He still looks 58 like he has done since the 1990s! Even like Cliff Richard who was previously ageless has aged a lot now in 70s but Ringo still looks young enough to be the son of a guy in his 70s! I wonder what his trick is, going to bed with Barbara Bach every night I'd imagine!
[Editor Rob: he's aged well, hair colour helps a lot, as does the demands of Barbara probably...]

-Rob. Before you said that you thought Ringo was 5'6'' maximum in the 60:s but now you have him at 5'7'' peak. What made you change your mind?
[Editor Rob: from looking at more footage I think there was a chance he was near 5ft 7 and shrunk by now.]

Some new data has come to light. The Beatles trouser measurements from 'Help' from D. Millings who were the fabs tailor. In inces: John W32 L30 3/4, Paul W31 1/2 L31, George W31 L30 and Ringo, W29 1/2 L29. So probably pretty small guys...

1,68 is about right

About 3-4 inches shorter than the other Beatles.

Ringo was definitely short because he got ragged on about it by Beatle-hostile reporters. People would (rudely) ask him how tall he was and he'd say, four foot six, or something equally ridiculous. He probably wanted to be tall, because he got himself cast in a spaghetti western as a villain, and looked perfectly ridiculous with his Liverpool accent and small body. The least talented Beatle, but also the most stable and personally likable which, come to think of it, are very useful talents to have if you're a working class boy from Liverpool who suddenly becomes a pop culture god.

All the Beatles' height were exaggerated in the '60s when they were superstars. Plus they wore 2-inch Cuban heels. Ringo was advertised as 5'8" back in the day. I guess he was 5'6" in his peak.

Maybe at his peak 5'6". Check him out against Peter Sellers who IMOb claims 5'8". Sometimes he looks 3 inches shorter that Sellers.
Seb said on 4/Sep/13
Just watched Ringo in the Magic Christian and he looks 2-3 inches shorter than Sellers. So once again even then, about 5'5", unless Sellers is wearing lifts. There is also as scene with Richard Attenborough who seems even shorter that Ringo.
Irving said on 24/Aug/13
Hey any guesses what his weight was on the Beatles? I read somewhere that he was 134lbs is that a fair estimate?
marc said on 6/May/13
some people say ringo is 5ft3 wich i dont think is his proper height he looks 5ft6 i also herd on the radio he was 5ft6 and a half

I also heard somewhere that John was measured to be 5'9.5", although I don't remember where. But it seems pretty believable, I've always thought John, Paul, and George looked in the 5'9"/5'10" range just by their figures. So that would put Ringo at 5'6" for sure.
Seb said on 13/Apr/13
I read somewhere that yoko measured john at 5'9.5". So I'm with lagnagal at 5'5" today for ringo.
