5'6 may be okay next to 5'7.75ish Sellers. no way Sellers was over 5'8

All I can find is Click Here Sellers is leaning a little but Kwouk wasn't much shorter. I think the height difference between Sellers and Graham Stark was greater in Shot in the Dark, Stark could have been 5'6".

Sellers definitely didn't have 2.5 inches on him, If he was just a flat 5 ft 6 peak then Sellers was nearer 172cm than 174. I'd upgrade Kwpuk by half an inch and downgrade Sellers by half an inch, that would be nearer I think, but your call, Kwouk is 83 years old now as I say...

Rob I was about to request this, I didn't realise you had a page for him already. I've been watching the Pink Panther films last few days and he's about 1.5 inches shorter than Sellers. They're involved in a lot of close combats of course and are often close and Sellers had between 1 and 2 inches between him. I watched Revenge of the Pink panther yesterday and my feeling was that if Sellers was 5'8.5" he was about 5'7". I'm not really convinced on 174 for Sellers, I think he looks more a flat 5'8". 169-170cm I'd say is accurate peak. Remember he's the same age as Connery and Eastwood and 83 this year, so quite reasonable that he's lost 2 inches from peak and now 5'5". I'd guess 173cm for Sellers and 169cm for Kwouk peak.

Man, he never seemed to stand up for folk so I only saw him close once, when he was to his signing table, and he looked roughly 5ft 4ish nowadays.

rob, i use to be a big of the pink panther movies ! to me burt kwuok has never looked pass 5'5 -5'6 , because peter sellers was about 5'8-5'9 ! also herbert lom looks about 5'7 !

[Editor Rob: as mentioned, I was not sure on this guy's the summer wine, really does look short, so maybe not lost a great deal and was always shorter than his claim]
