yeah, next to bush father (6'2") he does look 5'11.5" at best, but he was quite old...i would put him at 6'0.5" as peak height for sure

A pity we can't squeeze in This Is the Army here, a great WWII morale booster film.
Arch Stanton says on 2/Sep/14
Yeah he looks about 184 in The Winning Team opposite Doris Day.
Arch Stanton says on 2/Sep/14
Probably the most commanding actor I've ever seen on screen, he was just a natural born leader. You could see it even in his earlier films.

Rob can you add a photo and update with best remembered for roles in films such as Santa Fe Trail, Kings Row, Knute Rockne All American, Cattle Queen of Montana, Desperate Journey, Bedtime for Bonzo, The Winning Team, That Hagen Girl and Hellcats of the Navy.

@Arch Stanton
its safe to say Reagan was more like 6'0 flat and strong 5'11 by the early -mid 90s

Reagan was a bit shorter than Gerald Ford (183cm) so i would say 182cm for Reagan. George H.W. Bush is 188cm, there's moore than just 4cm difference there.

I have seen pictures of him and the King of Spain, those pictures were taken between 1981 and 1985.The King once stated he was 1.86 in his youth, maybe he was downgrading his height and was just a bit taller, I don't know.King John Charles looked about two inches taller than Reagan at that time,maybe a tad more...Reagan coulda been around 6' when he was a young man.

His daughter Patty stated he was never 6"1"--she said he was between 5'11' and 6'.

Reagan was about an inch shorter than 6'1.5" listed Gene Evans and about an inch taller than 6' listed Jack Elam. I'd say Elam was more 5'11.5" and Evans was really 6'1.5".
Arch Stanton says on 11/May/13
24:58 is probably the best comparison. Reagan looks taller than Jack Elam and shorter than Gene Evans who is leaning a bit, he was listed at 6'1.5" I think 184 looks about right.

Watching Cattle Queen of Montana. Pause at 5:55. Click Here

Oddly he looks shorter than the guy on the right Jack Elam who was listed at 6ft!
Arch Stanton says on 11/May/13
Yeah I think that's more accurate. I'll watch Cattle Queen of Montana later on today and see how he looks in that. Flynn could have been 189 peak after all, but I'd need to see more comparisons.
Arch Stanton says on 9/May/13
Pause at 1 hr 29:16, Flynn has a good 2 inches on Reagan.
Arch Stanton says on 9/May/13
Rob, I'm watching Santa Fe Trail, Havilland easily looks 5 ft 4 next to Flynn but one thing strikes me is that Reagan doesn't even look close to 6ft 1 when stood next to Errol Flynn, at least 2 inches shorter. Tiny url isn't working at the moment but on the tube Errol Flynn Ronald Regan Santa Fe Trail Full Movie 1 hr 29 range. No way is Reagan only an inch shorter than Flynn.

[Editor Rob: yeah he could have been shy of that mark, maybe 184 is a better shout at the moment ]

Stephen says on 3/Nov/12

Reagan was c. 5'11'' in the years of his presidency. I have a picture of him about 1981 with Australian Prime Minister Malcom Fraser, who was 6'4", and Fraser towers over Reagan - 5" difference is my guess.

He could look 5'11" a lot agreed. He looked a very similar height to Leslie Nielsen to me who I think was 5'11.5" by his later years and like Reagan a whisker under 6'1" peak. I think 5'11.5" would be a good guess for him in office.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP says on 6/Feb/12
5'11.5" MAX when he was in office. I could buy 6'0" flat at peak though.
