Robert Conrad's height is 5ft 7in (170 cm)

US Actor. Don Stroud said in a Psychotronic interview: "Robert Conrad is my dear friend. Yknow Bob is not six foot one. Im a foot taller than Bob. Im not saying what size he is, but a lot of guys his size wont use big guys like me in their movies. Like when I did WALKER, TEXAS RANGER. Chuck Norris is a little guy"

There is a mission impossible episode (season 5, ep 1 "the killer"), that you can see on netflix that has him standing near Peter Graves (hotel scene), and graves towers over him... looks like he has 8+ inches on him. In fact, that was the only part of the episode that Conrad came in contact with the cast. Since the cast is very tall, they probably wrote it that way. I would guess 5.5, 5.6 with normal shoes.

I think of Robert Conrad as a miniature Clint Walker. They both possessed unusual male beauty and athleticism and unforced virility, but Walker was (I suspect) a foot taller. Conrad could have walked down the street before he became famous, and people would have sneaked looks at him. In Walker's case, people would have just turned and stared, without thinking to conceal their fascination.

It isn't hard to tell that the guy is not very tall. He was still a very handsome man with a good physic and a lot of confidence. Not afraid to do anything. I'm 6 feet tall and when young was in very good shape but would trade for the strong features and confidence any day. I still love watching wild wild west. I hate to see all my old action hero's getting older. But they live on in the movies and television shows. What more can you ask for. Sure they may not be like the big Hollywood productions now day's but they are so out there anyway. Guy's like Clint, Bronson, Connery, and Conrad ruled the day. And were down to earth and believable not so much in fantasy land. Personality not special affects. Going to miss them when they are gone. Thumbs up!

I have long been actively interested in how tall celebrities are, and I cannot recall another instance of a man saying that he was five foot eight. This is because that is an unremarkable height, and men who really are that tall, or near it, are rarely asked how tall they are. Only unusually tall or short people are asked their heights. So, if Robert Conrad just volunteered that he is five foot eight, he's probably adding inches. He certainly looks short.

Peter Flak was 5' 6" and clearly 2" taller than Robert Conrad.

since guys exaggerate a great deal about inches, i would say Robert Conrad is 5'6

@Rob Bryant I'd just like to say that I don't think anyone here is judging anyone by their height (the opposite, probably). I think we're mostly just interested in knowing the truth about public figures who are often billed as being sort of "larger than life". For me, it also helps to see how I fit into the world. I know how tall I am, but I can't see myself from the outside. By watching film and television, I can put myself in the place of actors who are my height, and gain some perspective of how I appear in the world.

Watching an episode of Columbo (Season 4, Ep. 1). There's a great shot of Conrad without shoes standing next to Falk in his standard brown Columbo shoes (which look pretty flat, despite a small heel). Falk looks about a half inch taller in shoes. I've always felt that Falk was about 5' 5", and I think Conrad might be in the same range.

I met Conrad a few years back at an autograph signing. I'm a good 5-8 and I towered over him. I could eat comfortably off the top of his head. He couldn't be much taller than 5-3. He is about same height as Michael Fox.

I met him in January and he's 5' 6" tops. He'd be on a small box with Loggia. Seat pillows are common on TV newscasts and motion picture/TV work. At 5' 6" it helps.

With Robert Conrad's amazing good looks, height is hardly an issue. I am 5'8" and although I am female, it would not bother me to be with someone my height.

Still watching the "Wild Wild West" episode. He's in a scene with Robert Loggia whose top height was supposed to be 5'8" or 5'9" and he towers over Loggia. BUT, he's standing behind something (and probably ON something). Now he's in a scene next to a woman, and they're sitting down at a banquet and he towers over her. Except that it looks like he's sitting on a pillow! They really did go to extreme lengths to divert people's attention from how short he is - once you start watching for it, it's really obvious!

I am watching an episode of "The Wild Wild West" right now, there's a scene of him running away from the camera (in a safari compound) and I was struck by his body proportions, his legs are EXTREMELY short (in fact, that's why I ended up on this forum, I was searching for how tall he is). He has the body proportions of a very short man, I would guess about 5'4" or 5'5".

Somebody meet him at the Hollywood Show in January in L.A.. He was born in '29. The state patrol and legal papers in his accident were thrown out there. Weak 5' 6" tops. Casting and camera angles and lifts did wonders.

Robert Conrad is a little under 5'-5". In the mid 1970's I ran into him at a Boxing event. He was wearing a work boot with a Knapp sole about 4 inches thick. Even with the help of the elevator boots he stood about 5'-9". Since when do you judge a man by his height? He's a great actor. I idolized him as Jim West on his TV show. He's a tough individual & could handle himself very well in the boxing ring. He was considering going pro at one time.
