Did this guy ever look young LOL? Even in his early films of the 60s like Mocking bird and The Chase he look middle aged!!

Watched Mr V's clip from The Fuigtive on Youtube. Barry Morse edges him out. Duvall was 5'9 max, imo.

I will say he is 5'7. I worked at a Movie theater back in 1993 and he came by for the "who shot Ernest Hemingway's" special showing. I shook his hand and he stood my same high, which is 5'7. Any taller on paper and is just PR.

In fairness though when stood his best he still looks 5'8 range with Downey accounting for his footwear.

Really looks shorter than 5'8.5 in The Judge, he looks now like he's lost nearer 2 inches, although he is hunched a bit.

Thanks for the update! Well, he made De Niro look 5'8" range in True Confessions. He could look 5'10 range at times.

Rob, can you update with a photo and American actor, best known for roles in films such as The Godfather, Apocalypse Now, Tender Mercies (Oscar win), The Apostle, Lonesome Dove, Network, The Great Santini, True Grit, and To Kill a Mockingbird to the top? I'd also suggest True Confessions and Falling Down (a memorable role opposite Michael Douglas) but you probably won't squeeze them in. He was in so many great films. Tallest I saw him look was in Tender Mercies where he looked about 6 ft but had on cowboy boots!

Just watched movie "Countdown" 1968. I would swear he and Caan are near spot on the same height, and this would be close to a peak height given the year of the movie. Both probably just a shade under 5 10"

So, Rob, what's your opinion on the clips I posted?

Also, I made some comments on the John Cleese page that haven't been added, was there a problem with them?
Mr.V says on 2/Sep/14
I seriously doubt Duvall was ever in the 5'10" mark in his youth.

Now, here's a clip from an early appearance he did in the "Wild, Wild West":

Watch when, from 20:15 onwards, he's face to face with Robert Conrad: they look similar height. Conrad is listed at 5'7" here and I know some people say he wore lifts in the show, but still, if Duvall was 5'9.5" at the time, he might have been around 179 cm in shoes. What kind of lifts might have Conrad been wearing to match his height?

Also, here's an early Duvall appearance in 'The Fugitive':

If you compare him to Barry Morse, also listed 5'9.5' here, at about 9.20 onwards, he appears to be a bit shorter. Even in the last minutes of the video (14.10 to the end), he's closer to the camera, but Morse still looks like he edges him a bit.

I believe the 5'8.5 he is now may not be much different from his peak height. What do you think, Rob?

He's around 80 years old now and has never lost much in height, he seemed to play more macho ladies man types after middle-age. I think recently he always plays the same guy now but he was a helluva an actor back in the 70s. Rob, could you add The Apostle, Lonesome Dove, Network, The Great Santini, True Grit and To Kill a Mockingbird to the top?

Seen & spoke with him at least a half dozen times in the last few years (in & around loudoun & faquier co. Virginia where he lives). I'd say 5' 9" is pretty much bang on.
Mike says on 22/Aug/13
Saw him at some YMCA in Manhattan back around 1976 (he was chatting up a young lady) and he appeared to be exactly my height, 5' 9" 1/2.
Arch Stanton says on 20/May/13
Rob, he's got an easy inch on Brando in The Godfather. Watching it now, Duvall looks around 5 ft 10, Brando 5'8" range.

I met him in a bar in 1974 Lake Tahoe - I was on a college off campus study - he was filming Godfather 2. I told him I remembered him in a Fugitive TV episode - he asked what character did he play - I said I did not remember the name but that he was playing a guy in a wheelchair - he said very good. I was 5'9-1/2 back then bare feet - he was about an inch shorter in sneakers (I was in sneakers also)
