How tall is Barbara Feldon

Barbara Feldon's Height

5ft 8 ½ (174 cm)

American Actress famous for tv show Get Smart (Agent 99). A 1983 article once described her as having a "Fine-boned five foot eight and a half inch frame".
It's not that Don [Adams] is so short...he's average height...but in heels I'm five feet 10 inches and that only looks right with somebody as tall as Dick [Van Dyke].
Like, I'm five-foot-nine and as a teenager i wanted to be a a dancer. Too tall.

Somebody did tell me to get thin ... but I was outraged. I had a sort of middle-west idea of what 'thin' meant. And being five foot nine I thought I was thin at 145 pounds.

Rob, is Edward Platt eligible for his own page on Celebheights?

It’s just that I thought we had agreed on 5’9” for him; a trifle taller than Feldon and Adams, especially considering his older age and lack of hair- sorry about that, Chief.
Editor Rob
Yeah, 5ft 9 seems respectable.
Gerald S said on 20/Apr/24
Agreed on Platt, Rob, so can you please add Edward Platt at 5’9”?

This 5’9” ranger definitely deserves a page. As well as Chief on Get Smart, he acted in major influential films including Rebel Without a Cause, North by Northwest, Pollyanna, Written on the Wind and Cape Fear.
Gerald S said on 22/May/23
So you think Platt had a good chance at the full 5’9” at peak, Rob?

Rob, where does Platt’s height fit in with Adams’ and Feldon’s at the beginning of this clip?

They are all evidently of a similar height range, but was Platt more likely the tallest or shortest of the three?
Editor Rob
Given his age, I'd say Platt might have been a bit taller...they did seem all within half inch of each other, quite surprising.

Rob, who peaked tallest in your opinion out of Don Adams, Feldon and Edward Platt (Chief of Control)?
Gerald S said on 1/May/23
Rob, Feldon looks taller than Don Adams at 23:20 and you can consequently see she has minimal footwear.

Rob, could Feldon have lost have an inch by 50 (1983)?

Happy 90th Birthday 99.
Editor Rob
Not sure if she lost that much by then.

You’ve got Max and 99 but no Chief...

Rob, as Don Adams even admitted Barbara Feldon was taller than him and as you’ve got Feldon at 5’8.5”, might a downgrade to maybe 5’8.25” be a better shout for Adams?

Happy 89th birthday to 99, I’m still saying 5’9” for her peak, she had to slouch a lot on Get Smart, apparently Adams was two inches shorter than her!
Editor Rob
I thought they might be very close, sometimes eyelevel differences can make somebody of the same height feel shorter or taller.

She’s so right in saying that Don Adams is average height!

When she was young she was in my opinion super hot. I think she was 5'8.5" peak. Don Adams looked a little taller.

Wow, my wife is the same height....and I`m 5ft 7ins, how I love tall girls.

Barbara Feldon said in a TV Land interview that she wouldn't stand in stocking feet...she would kind of roll her feet over and stand on the SIDES of her feet, to make herself shorter. She had callouses as a result. Ouch!

Met him. 5' 7" is about right. Looked creepy in a moustache. I'm sure Feldon was in barefeet much of every shot and Don in customs. He told me he worked stand-up for years before becoming 86.
C said on 1/Aug/08
I think Don Adams was also 5'9''. In several episodes of Get Smart, you can tell that Feldon is slouching so that Adams would appear taller (in those days, the guy had to be taller than the female co-star). Plus, in closeups, Adams stood on an apple crate while Feldon were no shoes. However, in certain scenes where Feldon does wears heels, she is only slightly taller than Adams, leading me to believe that they would probably be the same height if they both went bearfoot.

ive also heard 5-7 for him too.not kidding.
sf said on 29/Mar/08
Yea, I agree - officially listed as 5'9", (not on the show, but in real life)but I'm guessing maybe a little shorter for Don Adams.
Daniel said on 28/Mar/08
Thanks, sf
glenn said on 28/Mar/08
i just got feldon again.adams character was 5-11.he was 5-9 tops.possibly a bit smaller.
sf said on 28/Mar/08
Don Adams was reportedly 5'9", as well.
Daniel said on 28/Mar/08
How tall were Don Adams (agent 86) and Edward Platt (the chief)? They both looked 1.74m - 1.76m to me
Brad said on 10/Aug/06
Tall. Probably did every scene with 86 with no shoes.
Glenn said on 5/Mar/06
Possible.I thought 5-8.
