Rob, maybe 5’8.25” peak is most appropriate. I can see how a flat 5’8” might be a tad stingy.

Rob, I feel 5’8.5” is a trifle generous for Cribbins. Maybe a downgrade is necessary?

Please see around 1:34 with Cribbins and Andrew Sachs.

Could still seem 5ft 8ish in the clip, that would be absolute lowest I'd guess he was in his prime.

I had no idea Bernard starred in Frenzy.

I must have noticed when I watched it, but it’s completely left the sieve I pass off as my head!

Nothing over or under a flat 5’8” I would have thought.

Very good, Nik! 😁👍

@ Sandy Cowell - That is a great spot! His age can be found in the average guess (5’9.15” after 5 votes!) and so can the year he got married!

Oh, how fantastic! Bernard is on a Christmas Chase! I found 178cm for him which is probably his youthful height.

On the 29th of this month, Bernie is 91 years old. 😁👍

Though in Carry On Jack Cribbins didn't come across as the type he later portrayed, more a bumbling buffoon in that!

If they did a picture dictionary this guy would be the entry for "priggish" haha. That word sums him up quite perfectly! Whether or not he's like that in real life remains to be seen!

Rob are you sure on almost 5 ft 9? See 3:45 here with Andrew Sachs Click Here If you look at most comparisons with Cleese and Sachs it's clearly at least a foot so anything over 5 ft 5 for Sachs is too high. Cribbins doesn't look taller than 5'7" range there to me.

somewhere in 5ft 8 range for bernard I believe is quite possible, he does have several inches on Andrew from that brief moment.

Rubbish. He's little for christ sake. He's at least 5'7.

Looks about right was a couple of inches shorter then Peter Cushing in SHE. Had quite a muscular build in that film, quite shocking actually.
