I agree Paul, who do you think asked for a downgrade for Kenneth!!

Arch. Rob and myself are quite correct. It's just the angle that they are standing in carry on camping. Look at carry on again doctor and carry on matron. Kenneth Williams is clearly half an inch shorter than Charles Hawtrey.

I'm not sure on those two, but I know Williams only looked about an inch taller than Hattie Jacques in Camping, 5'7 for both seems a tad high.

See 54:07, you really think Hawtrey looks taller than Williams Paul??
Editor Rob: a little bit yeah.

Mmm not sure, in Khyber I agree Hawtrey did seem to edge Williams but others I saw it looked the other way around. I don't think Hawtrey looked 5'7.5 with Sid James. To me both WIlliams and Hawtrey looked in 5'6.5-7 range.

If you watched most of the carry on films you would notice that Charles Hawtrey was always half and inch taller than Kenneth Williams when they were standing next to each other. Charles Hawtrey was 5FT 7 and a half.

Really didn't look a full 5 ft 7 with Sid James, more 5'6.5.
Arch Stanton said on 23/Apr/17
I thought Kenneth Williams edged him out.

I would have guessed him taller. He was exceptionally thin and older than he looked though.
