5ft 6 (167.6 cm)

American actor, best remembered for appearing in films The Love Bug, Jack Frost, The Music Man and It's a Mad, Mad, Mad World.. In a 1956 Minneapolis Star he said "I'm only five foot six and i weight 215 pounds"
Look at me. I'm barely five foot six, I weigh 200 pounds and nobody is asking me to pose for collar ads. Sure, my mother and my wife think I'm handsome, but that's only two against the opinion of the world.

Honest enough height claimer but I would have thought a tad under 5'6" actually. In The Love Bug, Michele Lee (who looked under 5'8" with Dean Jones) had a good two inches on Hackett and 5'9" Benson Fong had at least three inches on Hackett, potentially more.

Heart attacks are strange things, Rampage. Tyrone Power, who seemed strong and athletic, died of one at 39. Ian Fleming, who had been a champion athlete in youth, had his first heart attack when he was 41. (Of course, Fleming usually smoked about sixty cigarettes a day.) Oliver Reed, who looked extremely strong, had his first attack when he was about 50, and then died of heart disease after a drinking binge when he was 61. Meanwhile, Peter Ustinov and Alfred Hitchcock, both morbidly obese, lived into their eighties. Peter O'Toole lived about forty years longer than could have been reasonably predicted from his history of lunatic dissipation

I remember hearing a doctor say on the radio that the first sign of heart disease in twenty percent of sufferers of it is death.
