I found out from The Chase the other day that Andrew was born in Germany.

Andrew looked so TINY on 'Fawlty Towers' next to gigantic John Cleese that I was quite surprised to find that he was as 'tall' as 5ft5!

I remember one episode was changed to 'Farty Owls'; the titles at the beginning had always been fiddled with in the most amusing of ways!

5ft5. πŸ˜πŸ‘

Arch Stanton: Polly (Connie Booth) wore big wedge sandals in most of her scenes in Fawlty Towers.

How sad to hear this morning that Andrew had passed on.
RIP ANDREW - you will be remembered with great affection.

He was listed as 5ft7 on his resume? Well, he looks smaller to me - 5ft4 - despite the fact that he was starring with the huge 6ft5 John Cleese in 'Fawlty Towers!'
He's guested on Countdown and was thoroughly nice!

Sounds about right Rob. Rob do you get many American visitors to your site?
Editor Rob
it's easier sticking to one name, I can respond better that way. American visitors are a good percentage of visitors, then UK/Canada/Aus/India.

What height did Burt look on the pink panthers?
Editor Rob
been a while since I watched those films.

Rob do u think then maybe he was 5 ft 7 in the 1970s like it said on his resume?

And Burt Kwouk who played Cato in Pink Panthers was he once 5 ft 7 too like on his CV?
Editor Rob
no, I think that was too high. A few resume heights do get boosted, and I'd have said both Burt and Andrew's were cases in point. On Fawlty Towers he really didn't look 5ft 7.

Today though he looks similar to Prunella Scales I think.

Thanks. Yes I got a good look at him with Cleese yesterday and thought in fairness he was looking near enough 5 ft 5. I'd always perceived him as shorter though. He could look shorter than even this in some scenes. 5 ft 7 is pretty laughable though! I'd thought Polly was about 5 ft 5 though and thought she was a bit taller than Manuel.
