How tall was Christopher Lee

Christopher Lee's Height

6ft 4 ½ (194.3 cm)

British actor best remembered for roles in films such as The Curse of Frankenstein, The Mummy, The Oblong Box, The Devil Rides Out, The Wicker Man, The Man with the Golden Gun, The Three Musketeers and film franchise such as the Dracula movies by Hammer Studios, The Lord of the Rings, and the Star Wars prequels. In his early entries in the Spotlight Casting directory he was listed as standing 6ft 3 before changing to 6ft 4. He once told Cinescape magazine - on filming Sleepy Hollow - "They're not going to have me in the same scene standing up. I'm 6'4!, and they are 5' 6' or something like that; they're just not going to have it. I don't blame them". In his book Tall, Dark and Gruesome he says "Dr No at 6ft 6 tops me by a couple of inches." I saw him up close in October 2006 and thought he looked nearly 6ft 3.

How tall is Christopher Lee

I rose on the legs of a Heron and by the time I was 17 years old I was six foot four inches tall. Whatever fortune tellers and people who give instruction in waltzing may say, there are quite a number of disadvantages to being tall, especially in Britain.
I'm six-foot-four...The first 10 years of my career between 1947 and 1957, I was always being told here in Britain, not in the States - that's why I rather wish I'd been born an American and had become an American actor because my size, either too tall or too short, would've been immaterial - I was told over here I was much too tall for the average British leading man, therefore out of the question that I would be in any kind of film with any of these people because people's eyes inevitably gravitate to something that's either taller or shorter or fatter or thinner or whatever. And so rather than being discouraged by this, which I thought was nonsense anyway - and indeed, in a sense, it is - I was all the more determined that during those 10 years before I got my first break, I would learn everything I possibly could about my craft.
Q: Was your height a problem in your early career?
LEE: Oh yes, it was.
Q: I imagine that was because no one cared to have someone in the picture who towered above the leading man.
LEE: That is exactly right.
Q: I have heard all sorts of estimates of your height, anywhere up to six-foot-six.
LEE: No. I am six-foot-four.
-- Famous Monsters of Filmland
Being six-foot-four was a terrible disadvantage to me. I was the tallest actor in the country. I am also not entirely British in appearance. ... I didn't represent in the eyes of the distributors or the eyes of the audience a typical Englishman — so they told me.

Looks absolutely weak 6-5 peak. In the 60s hammer films he looked 6-4
Andrea said on 28/Nov/23
I don't know why the comment ended up on Christopher Lee's page, but anyway I guess that just goes to show how hard it is to tell how much someone could slouch at times, especially in non full body pictures. I mean, if you showed that pic of you with him, there's no way I could have ever imagined anywhere near 6'6 being possible, and actually I wouldn't have thought he was standing that terribly at all!
Editor Rob
I remember he slouched or had his legs wider apart in 90% of photos that day. I'm sure he dropped 3 inches with us...definitely not 6ft 4.25, looks 2 inches taller than guys like Padalecki!
Andrea said on 27/Nov/23
So is Patrick Brennan 6'6, Rob?
I've recently seen him in Bosch and even if I couldn't really compare him with the cast, he certainly seemed a very tall guy, with quite a big head too I'd add!
Funnily he gets listed at only (a very precise LOL) 6'4 1/4 on imdb...
Editor Rob
Yes, Brennan in person is very tall, seemed easily taller than 6ft 5 guys up close. Never stood properly for a photo.

Haha! I won't spoil it for you then but it's a classic example of something happening the audience doesn't expect which dramatically changes the dynamic of the movie. It's definitely an underrated horror film IMO and well acted by Barbara, though Stephen Furst really makes the film what it is! Lelia Goldoni is virtually unrecognizable as the wife in it, incidentally she starred opposite Christopher Lee in Theatre of Death in 1967!

Rob, what do you think is a more correct height for eddie powell, 6ft 3.25 or 6ft 3.5?
Editor Rob
I think either of those could be possible, though I don't think I've seen enough of him to really pinpoint it.
Sandy Cowell said on 17/Sep/23
@ Arch Stanton - The cover of The Unseen looks terrifying, with Barbara scared out of her wits. Yes, I’ve bought a copy; I couldn’t resist it!

Sandy Cowell said on 17/Sep/23
@ Arch Stanton - I read your comment this morning while I was still in bed and laughed out loud at your calling me a ‘horror film connoisseur’! Yes, perhaps I am; most of the kids in my class were and I reckon that encouraged me, but then, my maternal grandmother enjoyed horrors and thrillers as well. I wanted to watch them with her, but my Mum wouldn’t allow me as I was only 7, 8 and 9 years old. She was never keen on them herself, but I showed them to her anyway! 😂👍🏼

‘The Unseen’ does ring a bell with me, but as I do not own a copy, I’m going along to Amazon to see if they sell it. It sure seems like a film I’d like to own, so if they have it, I will indeed be a proud owner of a DVD in the not-too-distant future!

Thank you for your comical comment, Arch,

My best, as always,

Sandy XXXXX 😁👍🏼

i think 195 cm is arguable id give him a weak 6'5" (6'4.75")
Arch Stanton said on 16/Sep/23
It's a quirky film Sandy. Doesn't suit Lee with blonde hair does it!! Glad you enjoy it! I can see 195cm for Lee, I think Rob said it's possible too. Though watching him in some of his earlier 50s films I thought he looked more a 6'4 ranger.

Being the horror film connoisseur that you are I'm sure you've seen The Unseen (1981) with Barbara Bach. The basement scenes really had the element of surprise and were well shot and turned it from a rather mediocre film into a good one I thought!
Sandy Cowell said on 15/Sep/23
When Christopher is wearing the long, black wig and dancing, I find it very disturbing. It was voted one of a scariest scenes of all time in a documentary I saw in the 90s. My favourite of all the characters is the poodle wearing white high heels! 🐩

🌞 The three girls, Britt Ekland, Diane Cilento and Ingrid Pitt, were blonde for a reason. The residents of Summerisle were worshipers of the sun, and even as far back to the Stoneage times, blonde girls, boys and women, were offered as sacrifices to the sun. The sacrifices would take place at Stonehenge. Their throats were slit and the blood was consumed by all those present. It was considered an honour to die like this. The fair-haired victims would often dye their hair with mud.

Christopher is by far the tallest of all the islanders.
Sandy Cowell said on 4/Sep/23
As I’ve just mentioned on Edward Woodward’s page, I’ve been watching The Wicker Man many times of late. Although Christopher’s acting - and singing - in this film are unbeatable, it can upset me so much that I often have to follow it up with The Devil Rides Out, in which Christopher plays a thoroughly knowledgeable nobleman, whose brainpower and determination overcome a powerful Satanist. I feel the character he plays is rather befitting of the man Christopher was in real life. I never tire of watching his interviews. I loved him so much, and have a signed photo of him, which I bought online.

I see 6ft5 for this excellent human being, who gave to this world his all, in the form of his excellent acting, singing and the relating of his vast array of worldly experience.

I turned my TV on a couple of nights ago and was really excited to see that ‘The Devil Rides Out’ was on. Unfortunately, it was ending so I had no choice but to put on my own copy!

I saw this film as a teenager and it scared me something frightful, but as with anything written by the studious Dennis Wheatley, it ends well.

There was a document where Samuel L Jackson did describe Lee as ‘Very Tall.’

It’s very funny because he actually looks taller than peak Rock, with Samuel L Jackson.

Peak Rock never had much on Samuel L Jackson while an 80 year old Christopher Lee had more on Samuel L Jackson.

A peak Chris Lee must’ve been very big, back then.

Vincent Price holds his own against Peak Christopher Lee but Lee has the edge on Price.

That makes sense, Arch. He looked pretty huge! 😉

I think I requested Leon Greene a while back Sandy. I could have sworn somebody said they saw a 6'3.5 listing for him.
Sandy Cowell said on 24/Mar/23
I’m looking at Leon Greene, who passed away at nearly 90 in 2021. Leon was closer in height to Christopher Lee than anyone else that immediately springs to mind.

Having checked out the great actor’s height, I found 6ft4 and 6ft3. I reckon he’ll have probably been between the two heights. PLEASE, Rob, could you give Leon a page?

Leon was most definitely big and very strong, as can be seen in The Devil Rides Out, in which he starred with Christopher Lee.

Correction Time:

That should have been ‘not exactly unpredictably’ instead of what I came out with! I think it was my autocorrect, because it tried it on AGAIN! 🤪
Sandy Cowell said on 8/Mar/23
Christopher Lee was fluent in English, French, Spanish. Italian and German. He also spoke some Latin and some Russian.
Sandy Cowell said on 8/Mar/23
It came as no surprise to find that Christopher Lee knew the author Dennis Wheatley.

Mr Wheatley was an authority on the black arts, but unlike Alastair Crowley, and I don’t give a 💩 if I spelt that wrongly, he was totally against it.

Wheatley used to sell his books with a protective amulet. I saw the adverts for his books in the 70s. THAT’S how against the black arts he was. How sensible…..

Tall Christopher can be seen pictured with Dennis Wheatley in this interview. Not exactly unpredictability, Christopher looks like a giant next to Dennis, who was probably about 5ft9.

One of the first things I invested in when I had internet facilities was to buy a signed picture of the great Christopher Lee. I was still affected by his death. I wish he was still with us today, filling our heads with his massive knowledge. What Christopher didn’t know wasn’t worth talking about.

I’m giving this incredible man 6ft4.75. Ha ha - he made the 5ft6 Nastassja Kinski look like a hobbit, and I underestimated her height for many years. She was born one day before me!
Sandy Cowell said on 1/Feb/23
If any of you get the chance to listen to a Christopher Lee interview, go ahead! The man is absolutely fascinating.
A couple have been submitted to this page that I’ve seen and probably more that I haven’t, so check ‘em out, everyone! I’d love to have met him, or at least caught a glimpse of him, as was the case for Rob.
Emil said on 27/Jan/23

Back in 1947-1957, I would assume Christopher was taller than 1 out of 1000 British men. Even by today's standards, he'd be taller than more than 99%.
Editor Rob
Certainly would be rarer for Lee to come across a gentleman taller than himself in the 50's.
berta said on 27/Jan/23
i think 195 is closer than 194 peak. But i am looking at the tv seris the macahans now ( old classic that was very popular in europe in the 70s) James arness played the main character and he and Lee is standing togehter inside in a scene. Lee had military posture and arness was slouching and is still atleast 3 cm beetween them. Also lee had a big heel and james was wearing indian shoes, the kind that are like walking almost barefoot, just a thick layer of leather. I guess it only have him 1 cm. So if both stood tall then we would have about 4 cm differance and then 1,5 cm in shoe difference. Thats 5,5 cm. Hm. Lee always looked 195 but in that scene i could see argument for 194 vs 199,5. One thing is clear lee could never been over 195 and arness is underlisted a bit. i guess lee was 194,5 and ofcourse rounded down for roles. And arness was very legit 199. 198 is hard to believe sometimes at his peak. In this scene im talking about he was almost 60 years and looked like a guy that could have shrunk 1 cm and still with bad posture was not a mm under 6´6. Just my thoughts.
Sandy Cowell said on 21/Jan/23
Christopher Lee’s Christmas release was called ‘Darkest Carols, Faithful Sing’ and it depicts the great man on the front cover with a huge big axe, as in guitar. 🎸

It is sung to the carol ‘Hark The Harald Angels Sing’ and is well worth a listen! Heavy, man…..

Sandy Cowell said on 19/Jan/23
On Tuesday just gone, I watched Christopher Lee’s The Devil Rides Out, To The Devil A Daughter and The Teo Faces of Dr Jeckyll. Christopher looked huge in all of them, and made 5ft6 Nastassja Kinski look small!

6ft4.5 at least. I go for 6ft4.75.
Danimal said on 26/Dec/22
6'5" peak (same as John Cleese and Tim Robbins). Both Christoper and Tim downgraded their heights.
Hyper said on 24/Dec/22
He also had an easy inch on peak Donald Sutherland, despite Sutherland being nearer the camera.

That rules out 6’4” flat for sure. I think Lee was 6’4.5”-6’4.75”, prime.
Sandy Cowell said on 18/Dec/22
Sir Christopher made a heavy metal album in his 90s - and that’s a record!

He had the most beautiful soprano, as can be witnessed in The Wickwr Man.

He could've been 195 cm.

I'd believe that over 193cm any day. Could look the full 6ft5 as well at times. He admitted being tall was problematic in his career so no doubt he'd round down to 6ft4.
Sandy C said on 8/Aug/22
I actually got round to watching Christopher’s The Wicker Man last night. There’s plenty of humour in the body of the story, but when it gets to the end, I’m always in shock. I wanted to watch the Emmerdale omnibus, but just wasn’t in the mood.

Definitely Sir Christopher at his finest, and one of my three favourite films of his, the others being The Devil Rides Out and To The Devil a Daughter, both Hammer productions based on Denis Wheatley novels, well the first one definitely is and I’m 95% sure that the second is too.

Yes, I saw 6ft5 for this brilliant man, who towered over all but one of the others. 🕯
Jake: 1.84 m - 1.85 m said on 1/Aug/22
He could've been 195 cm.

Still looked towering in the behind-the-scenes documentary of The Hobbit. Would’ve guessed him at 190 range at that time. 195 peak is my guess.
Voorhees Myers said on 14/Jul/22
Probably closer to 6-5 than 6-4. Imo one of the best horror film actors of all time. Absolutely brilliant.
Rory said on 13/Jul/22
I think 6ft4.5 peak is fair and then held on to his height well,looked 6ft3.75 with Samuel L Jackson age 80. I think with Roger Moore, Moore as a solid 6ft1 and Lee a solid 6ft4.5 looked fair. In those pictures he looks a good 4 inches taller but he has a favourable camera angle compared to Moore. Also in the famous back to back between Lee and Moore I think Lee was on slightly higher ground.
Almost 180cm guy said on 10/Jul/22
Today Sir Christopher Lee would be 100 years old, 20 years after the premiere of Attack of the Clones when he was 80. Here are some more photos of Lee from 2002 with Lucas, Hayden and Samuel: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
Looking at the shoe difference I think 6ft 3 for Lee at the time and 6ft 2.25 for Samuel looks fine. But 6ft 4.75 as Lee's peak height is very likely, here are another photos of Lee alongside Roger Moore from 1974: Click Here Click Here
Lee looked at least 3.5 inches taller than Moore, sometimes even close to 4 inches. Please Rob look again at this of Lee with Woody Allen from 1966: Click Here
Until a few years before his death, he may have looked a little over 6ft 2 as in this photo alongside Johnny Depp from 2010: Click Here
Rob, have you decided to award Lee 6ft 4.75?
Editor Rob

Last time I looked, felt 4.5 was still fair, though it’s less likely I’d ever list him less than that now.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 2/Jul/22
@ Andrey200 - What an interesting interview. I’m only about half way through it, pausing it as I have an overwhelming urge to watch ‘The Wicker Man’.

I liked the bit in which Sir Christopher retorts, “No you haven’t!” to fans who come up to him reckoning that they’ve seen all his films! 😂👌🏼

His references to the horrors of the war are most poignant.
Andrey200 said on 28/Jun/22
Rob, in this interview Click Here the interviewer claims Lee thinks he “lost about an inch from his full height of 6ft 5in”. There isn’t a direct quote from Lee about that, would you say we can assess that he did claim 6’5 at one point?
Editor Rob
he could have said he'd shrunk an inch, and the interviewer filled in the blank saying 'from 6ft 5'
Lee consistently went with 6ft 4.

Sir Christopher mentioned in his programme last night that his favourite role was his part in The Wicker Man, as Lord Summerisle. It was specially written for him.

He was 73 or 74 when the programme was made, and still looked as tall as ever, with an excellent posture. It
was a really ‘cosy’ interview, feeling as though this great man was talking to his audience personally. The only thing missing was an open fire in the background!

He will still be celebrated another century from now, that’s for sure! 👌🏼
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 27/May/22
Tonight on the Talking Pictures channel, there will be a programme about the celebrated horror actor entitled,
‘The Many Faces Of Christopher Lee’. It starts at 11 o’clock.

Afterwards, there will be a showing of his film ‘The Devil Rides Out’, one of my favourites of the late Sir Christopher’s
movies. He plays a knowledgeable nobleman who fights the dark arts, a sect which is led by an evil, piercing-eyed Charles Gray.

That’s my entertainment sorted tonight! 😃👍🏼

Canson said on 21/May/22
@Hyper: yea he may have been something like 6’4 5/8 perhaps. But then again maybe 6’4.5 was his low and 6’4 5/8 lunch. I’d be interested to see what he actually measured. He was a very tall man so I don’t rule out him rounding down all the way from 6’4.75 is he thought claiming 6’5 was too much for an actor. He def wasn’t just a flat 6’4 however. But I will say that I’m proportionately built and have broad shoulders so I can easily get guessed taller esp at a glance. I am regularly guessed at 6’5” even sometimes in thinner footwear but that could be due to sometimes wearing a hat whether they can’t tell based on eye level or because they assess me a shoe height. They don’t usually argue much when I shoot back that I’m a hair over 6’4 or 6’4 1/4” barefoot and that I’m 6’5 in shoes though and that I have good posture which makes people think things through a little more. That’s really the only time I claim the change is when I’m guessed taller or when I get someone who’s visibly a weak 6’4 or weak 6’3 etc claim the full thing. Weak meaning down to 6’3.5 or 6’2.5”. Otherwise I always say I’m 6’4”
Hyper said on 21/May/22

I think Lee was closer to 6’4.75”. He was directly in World War 2 before he started acting. He was reported to have been ‘almost killed’ many times, one from a crash. Another from a grenade.

I could be wrong but there might be reports of his height in the military because that’s classified and I don’t think I would have access to such.
avi said on 2/May/22
Many here are saying Lee towered Moore in Man with the golden gun
It was a good difference but not over 4 inches. Moore was not under Lee's eyebrows so 3.7 ish is probably the difference
6'4.5 for Lee and 6'0.8 for Moore

I think Moore was looking weak 6'1 at times
Canson said on 2/May/22
He could’ve been a 6’4 1/2 lunchtime and 6’4 3/8 afternoon. That’s technically not downgrading himself. Even if 6’4 1/2 or 6’4 5/8 is his low there’s still no issue as he is still 6’4 range. If a 6’3 guy can call himself 6’4 then I’m not seeing why a 6’4 1/2-3/4” guy can’t call himself 6’4”. Has to work both ways
Tech noir said on 2/May/22
Describing himself as 6-4 when he’s definitely over 6-4. 6-4.5 IMO or near 6-5.

@Mike Voorhees
Maybe as not as much as one might think. Back in the day, tall leading actors were the archetype and the standard. Sure, the general population's average may have been shorter than today's, but I'd argue that the average leading actor's height has ironically decreased over the decades.
Mike voorhees said on 9/Mar/22
Must of been a unique look in the 50s being a 6-4 actor. Legit tall guy.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 9/Feb/22
@ Tall Sam - Hi Tall! Indeed why should he have done? The things he saw and lived through made him a cut above. I read somewhere that he saw someone beheaded while still in his teens, yet I had nightmares after reading my history book in one night flat at 14.

I dreamt that I was held down to watch an execution, which failed, probably a reflection on Mary Queen of Scots' own beheading. History sure is gruesome, and I was worried for the young minds having to read about executions at the beginning of this century.

We aren't all as super strong as Sir Christopher Lee! WHAT a fantastic man, and I don't think he actually gave much of a toss about being so tall, but he willingly answered any interviewers' questions when they approached him on the subject.

Cheers mate!

After watching the great man's interview regarding 'The Wicker Man', I went on to see other interviews and in one of them, he discussed his bemusement at the thought of Americans doing a remake of 'The Wicker Man'. Never one to be rude, Sir Christopher said some rather kind things about the film. The guy watching it with him, however, thought differently, saying it was the worst film he'd ever seen! 🤭😯

Oh no, I wouldn't go that far, but I don't own a copy. I wouldn't turn my nose up at one though, to add to my ever-growing collection of Nicolas Cage movies.

I enjoyed Sir Christopher's edition of 'This Is Your Life' again, which was kindly submitted by one of the Celebheights visitors some time back. I think it might have been Ian C. The likelihood of being offered his star-studded edition if you hunt around for Mr Lee's interviews are pretty good. It's happened to me on three occasions.

@ Ian C - I laughed at your comment regarding your height. Does the word 'smug' ring any bells? 🔔 Very funny....!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 3/Feb/22
I've come across an interview with Christopher Lee in which he discussed his film, 'The Wicker Man'. The great man denies it being a horror movie, and in many respects, one has to agree with him. It gives us insight into a pagan religion's beliefs, scary as they are.

Somebody left a comment declaring, 'He's so intelligent, it's scary!'

Having listened to what he has to say, there's no denying that he knew exactly what he was talking about, and that applies to his entire lifetime's rich tapestry of awesome experience. He was more grown up in his teens than I'll be at 90, if I should get to that age!

6ft4.75 - at night. 🕯️
Arch Stanton said on 3/Feb/22
He definitely looked about 195cm in Golden Gun with Moore, but if you see his 50s and 60s films 196cm seems too high. I can believe 6'4.5 at lowest.
ChaosControl1 said on 1/Feb/22
If Rob saw him in 2006 and thought 6’3ish that adds up cause when I watched Revenge of The Sith I guessed he was around 190cm
Jolapizza said on 31/Jan/22
I agree for the peak height. I also doubt that he was never a full 6'5. But definetly over 6'4. In Lotr, he got a solid 4-5 inches on Ian McKellen. And I am pretty sure he was still over 6'2 when he passed away. R.I.P Christopher Lee.

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 22/Dec/21
It's not often that my brother allows me to burst in on him at half past four in the morning to put a film on but I did so with The Wicker Man earlier today, and he was only too happy!

I asked him how tall he thought Christopher Lee was and he said, "Six foot!"

"Six foot? SIX MEASLY FOOT? He was nearer to six foot five in 1973!"

That's what C. Lee gets from me this morning. 🌞

Don’t question this 6’4.5 listing but there a lot of different opinions about roger Moore’s height ( I suspect he was more 6’0 than 6’1-6’2) so I don’t think he’s the best guy to compare with.
RJT said on 13/Oct/21

Look at least 3" on Roger Moore with the lean, so he's this listing.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 8/Oct/21
The films of Christopher's which I tend to watch the most are the Dennis Wheatley novel based movies 'The Devil Rides Out' and 'To The Devil A Daughter', followed closely by 'The Wicker Man'. In the first two I mentioned, the contrast to his characters is vast. In 'The Devil Rides Out', Christopher plays an extremely knowledgeable nobleman and an expert on conquering the dark and dangerous arts, whereas in the other Wheatley movie, he is as dark and as evil as you can imagine.

I was watching Patrick Mower on 'Emmerdale' just a moment ago - getting stupidly drunk! 😵 He starred in 'The Devil Rides Out', as a foolish young man who's about to join a coven of Satanists. Next to Lee and Leon Greene, chalked up as 6ft4, who sadly passed away this year aged 90, not forgetting to mention Charles Gray, Patrick looked, eh, small, yet I found 6ft for him! I simply don't believe it, even if the actors in that 1968 film were hardly going to make anyone of even tall/average height look very statuesque.

Christopher gets 6ft4.75. 🤗....🕯️🕯️
Mrs Gail j Gray said on 27/Sep/21
I like Sir Christopher lee and Peter Cushing no matter how tall they were its talent and skill that matters in a film not there height has for Christopher looking foreign of course he would he has italian blood, there is far to much critism about him no matter what he says or do. My son is 6.3 and has irish running through his body, he many more tall people need respect.
Tall Sam said on 20/Sep/21
Wait that head shot could be Lee’s older twin, you sure those are Christopher’s parents or are they grandparents?
Tall Sam said on 20/Sep/21
@Arch Stanton: You can see a bit of his mother facially in Christopher but tiie could be one of those Rafe Spall kind of situations.
Arch Stanton said on 18/Sep/21
Click Here His parents there, can't see the resemblance much there though. His father doesn't have the legs of a very tall man, but his mother looks like she was tall.
Arch Stanton said on 18/Sep/21
Click Here Lee's father there, a clear resemblance, his dad could pass for Italian or Balkan region too.
Arch Stanton said on 18/Sep/21
Yes I also thought he didn't look English, too dark and brooding. I didn't realise his mother was full blooded Italian, makes sense. And not any Italian, she was from an Italian noble family. Lee did look 195cm with Moore in Golden Gun though.
Arch Stanton said on 18/Sep/21
Reading his comments, if anybody is likely to have downgraded his height it's him. I got a good look at him in numerous 50s and 60s films and there were often times I really couldn't see 6'4.75-6'5. His build and hair style at times could make him look it though I agree. 6'4.5 is best I think, 6'4'75 is possible too but the most I would guess.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 15/Sep/21
The legendary Sir Christopher Lee never continues to spring surprises on us.

There was a question on The Chase recently as to who was the oldest singer to release a heavy metal recording. It was Christopher Lee, who released 'Jingle Hell' at Christmastime, 2013.

This great man recorded 4 metal albums from the age of 89. Well, I knew he had a beautiful singing voice, having heard him singing and playing the piano in 'The Wicker Man', but his choice to decide upon a heavy metal career is really something of a magical career move and well worth checking out! 😲 Far out, Sir Christopher! 💕

Weak 6ft5, peak.

I'm watching Christopher Lee in 'Dr Terror's House of Horrors', in which he makes a living out of art. Each star in this film has his own short story, and when it's Mr Lee's turn, there's a little guy trying to attract his attention. He has to go on tiptoe in order to reach Christopher's shoulders and seems rather hacked off when Lee turns round and looks right down in order to see him!

I know the feeling, mate!

Ian C. said on 17/Jun/21
Lee is of particular interest to me because my own physique and his are very similar. I too am six foot four and a little bit and, at age 69, I have not lost any height. Because Lee lived into his nineties, and continued as a working actor until the last year of his life, I hold out hope that I will be similarly long-lived. Unlike Lee, I have never injured a joint, and I can still walk five miles without pain. (Which is rare good fortune in an old man, my young friends.)

As a point of possible interest, what exercise do I recommend that young people do to maintain good health? Squats. That's a lovely movement, and it strengthens just about everything from the waist on down.
Almost 180cm guy said on 28/May/21
Today Lee would be 99 years old and it's hard to say how tall he would have been if he were still alive. I believe his peak height was 6ft 4.75 and before he died he was about 6ft 2, shrinking 7cm from 195cm to 188cm. In the 90's I believe he could have been in the range of 6ft 3.5-3.25 and at 80 he was around 6ft 3 and when you met him Rob, (15 years ago) he was 6ft 2.75. Here's another photo of him with Samuel, Hayden, and Lucas: Click Here
Now please take a look again at these few photos where Samuel next to Lee could look even in the 6ft 2.5 range: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
Although I believe in 6ft 4.75, in the case of Samuel I have no doubts that he deserves the upgrade even more than Lee. Rob, I understand you may not be sure but I have no doubts about the 6ft 2.25 for Samuel.

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 9/May/21
After the slight disappointment of buying a film in which Christopher made only a brief appearance, I felt I needed to watch a film in which he dominates the screen to a far greater degree, and 'The Wicker Man' fitted the bill nicely. 😄

Mr Lee was 50/51 when this movie was shot in 1973, in fine health, beautifully voiced and looked at his optimum height.

I remember watching a 1990s run-down of the scariest horror film moments of all time, and a bewigged Lee dressed as a hugely tall woman simply had to make the grade. One comedienne described Christopher as 'pant-wettingly scary' in the scene and that's a perfect way to sum him up. He smiles menacingly throughout, adding to the creepiness, and his own personal account of the carefree lifestyles of animals when he observes a couple of snails is classically beautiful and meaningful, letting the viewer into the simplistic way the pagan mind works.

There is one other very tall actor in the film, but Mr Lee stands out as by far the tallest in the procession leading up to poor Edward Woodward's needless and tragic sacrifice by burning. 😿😢

I'm going with 6ft4.75.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 2/May/21
Christopher Lee only made the one appearance, alas, in 'Death Line'. ☹️

Rob, I hope to convince you someday that 6ft 2.25 is perfect number for Samuel's peak height.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 2/May/21
Can you imagine the excitement, people, of finding a film which stars Christopher Lee and Donald Pleasance TOGETHER? Well, I found one called 'Death Line', and I'm continuing to watch it now. It was described as follows: 'This is one of the best British horror movies of the 1970s'.

I've only seen Mr Lee the once, and he was telling Donald Pleasance off! The two haven't stood side by side yet, and that is what I'm waiting for. I'd call it a comedy horror, owing to Mr Pleasance playing a swearing, rude Inspector of the Police force, and the poshly-spoken Christopher Lee definitely doesn't like him! 😆👌
Tall In The Saddle said on 25/Apr/21
Price appeared as a guest on THIS IS YOUR LIFE, 1974, in honor of Christopher Lee. Price would've been about 63 yo and Lee 52. Near perfect vision to compare the two. The younger Lee had the edge but it wasn't by much. It's true that a lot of photos do depict Lee as having a greater height advantage over Price than he actually held in reality. I would say the above vision is the best quality evidence to judge them by.
Hyper said on 22/Apr/21

There are clips and pictures of them. Lee is taller than Vincent Price. I do agree Price is at least 6'4", but Lee is taller.

Looked a solid 3-3.5 inches taller than 6'1.25 Roger Moore in TMWTGG, so 6'4.5, possibly 6'4.75 at the very most seems about right.
Almost 180cm guy said on 8/Jan/21
Maybe I'm not sure about the full 6ft 5, but I do believe in 6ft 4.75 for Lee. In 1966, Lee really looked at least a full foot taller than Woody Allen: Click Here Click Here Click Here
And in 1974, the difference in height between him and Herve Villechaize seemed huge: Click Here
In the 60's and 70's Lee still looked over 6ft 4 but could lose height later. I am sending one more photo of him with Samuel L. Jackson, Lucas and Christensen from 2002 (remember that Hayden and Samuel had slightly less shoes than Lucas and Lee): Click Here
Although Lee less than 20 years ago might still looked around 6ft 3 as evidenced by this 2003 picture of Lee next to Cate Blanchett: Click Here
Later it could drop to around 6ft 2 as shown in this 2010 picture of Lee with Johnny Depp: Click Here
My final conclusions are as follows - Lee peak height 6ft 4.75 and before his death flat 6ft 2 (drop from 195cm to 188cm), Samuel L. Jackson peak height 6ft 2.25 and today flat 6ft 1, George Lucas peak height 5ft 6.25 and today 5ft 5.75 and Hayden Christensen 6ft 0.25.

Editor Rob
I don't see a full 6ft 5
Hyper said on 13/Nov/20
Rob, this is a hunch, but I think he was probably 6’4.75”, prior to World War 2. After World War 2, he did start his acting career.

Maybe there might be some records of his stature, before then, but that’s very much classified knowledge. I doubt I would be able to access such, let alone share.
Editor Rob
I am sure in some deep recesses of army records there would be a note of that.
Hyper said on 12/Nov/20
I feel he could’ve been close to 6’5” flat. He was in World War 2 and he did take a lot of injuries (some of them were near death) and sickness. That’s before he started his acting career.

Christopher gets 6ft5. 😁👍
Leviathan said on 20/Sep/20
I think his fullest height, in his much earlier years was a full 6'6.5" 199cm (a resplendent height!) and later he was 6 foot 4.25 193.5cm in his much older years. I think he was a lot taller than a lot of people think as he is much taller than say Roger Moore who was 6'1.25" and I personally would say there was about a 5 inch difference between them - and around 2 inches is not too much to shrink, which I believe is the case. However this is only my opinion please respect that. yes 6 foot 6 1/2 for Christopher Lee.
Sinclair said on 8/Aug/20
I would have thought Lee would have been at least a flat 6’5” out of bed at his peak, and possibly 6’4.75” for the majority of the day. Lee still looked a very strong 6’4” in The Man With The Golden Gun, when he was over fifty years old. Anything under the 6’4.5” listing, I would not be convinced of, for Lee’s peak height. Without a doubt, I think Lee was the tallest main James Bond villain, Yaphet Kotto was probably the second tallest and Curd Jürgens may have been the third tallest.
Ian555 said on 26/Jun/20
Rob a lot of people seem to think the late Christopher Lee was 6’ 5”, why don’t you list him at that tall?

I'm not convinced he was a full 6ft 5 from all I've seen over the years.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 23/Jun/20
It must have proved extremely difficult to find actors tall enough to play convincing sons of Christopher Lee.

Tonight I watched a film on the Horror Channel called 'The Heavy', and his two sons were played by the 6ft1-2 Gary Stretch and 6ft Adrian Paul. I couldn't help but notice that not once did he stand up with them! 😂😆😂

The film was released in 2010, but I believe it was made the year before, so Christopher will have been 86-87 at the time.

Was it any good? Well, I'm buying a copy! 😉👌

6ft5. 😁👍

I'm about to start in on the series ONE STEP BEYOND 1959-1961, full episodes freely available on YOUTUBE. I don't know if others are aware of or remember this series.

Sort of the lesser known, less heralded older sibling to THE TWIGHLIGHT ZONE. It actually debuted 9 months earlier than TTZ. I sort of remember the name but TTZ and The Outer Limits stand out more in my memory. A number of established and up and coming stars appear such as Joan Fontaine, Warren Beatty, William Shatner etc. It's different to TTZ in that the paranormal, supernatural stories are claimed to be based on stories reported as fact.

Anyway, cutting to the chase, none other than Christopher Lee appeared in a 1961 Episode called THE SORCEROR. Luckily with this one, the print is better than some of the other episode uploads.

If you haven't seen it and ENJOY! Click Here

Haven't watched it myself yet so I can't say if there is anyone of consequence to compare Lee's height against.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 18/Mar/20
@ Arch Stanton - I thought you might, seeming as you're so interested in old films. When I first came here, I thought you were considerably older than you are because of your taste in films and your extensive knowledge of their stars. When I'd see an old name, I'd say, "I bet that was one of Arch's!"

I was nearly always right! 😉👍

Arch Stanton said on 4/Mar/20
Yeah, I watch that early every morning Sandy!! Channel 81!! Run by legit film buffs too, a daughter following in her father's footsteps I believe. I love catching those 40s and 50s British films. Online you can get a lot of the American ones, but a lot of those British oldies are rare online. The adverts are incredibly patronising though, they assume everybody watching is about 88!
Tall Sam said on 3/Mar/20
Unfortunately I don't have a ton of time to watch the movies, but at a glance I would say 1.25-1.5 advantage for Lee over Sutherland seems likely. Back in the Dirty Dozen, I thought Clint Walker made Sutherland look scarcely over 6'3" a lot, but I think Sutherland had fairly poor posture as usual.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 2/Mar/20
@ Arch Stanton - Thanks very much, Arch! I was wondering recently if you have noticed the fairly new channel 'Talking Pictures'. It is filled with old movies from yesteryear, the sort of films which enthusiasts such as yourself would love! I found Christopher Lee on one only the other night, called 'Scars of Dracula', and starring a well-spoken Dennis Waterman and Patrick Troughton.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 29/Feb/20
@ Tall Sam - That was easy to find, I must say! The other two films which starred Christopher Lee and Donald Sutherland together were the 1964 film, 'Castle of the Living Dead' and from 1979, 'Bear Island', based on the novel by Alistair MacLean.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 29/Feb/20
@ Tall Sam - I'm glad I checked out Christopher Lee's page to find your reply, so thanks for taking the trouble. I must now find out the names of the other two films starring both Lee and Sutherland.

I can only, off hand, think of 'Doctor Terror's House of Horrors', which also stars Peter Cushing as Doctor Terror. It's about a train carriage full of gentlemen, who have their fortunes told by a rather sinisterly dressed Peter Cushing, who owns a pack of Tarot cards. The tales are all acted out for us, the audience, making for great entertainment. The special effects are in many cases so outdated that they look somewhat funny, especially the Donald Sutherland vampire tale, but they're immensely enjoyable nonetheless. For a film from the mid-Sixties, it's endured the test of time pretty well! When the gents get off the train, it is then that you can see their heights. The late Roy Castle, who I believe was 5ft8, and famous DJ Alan Freeman, are among an interesting cast.

Have a great weekend, Tall Sam! 😁 XX

On Saturday night, Film Four showed the uncut version of 'The Wicker Man' and I decided to buy it because it comes as part of a 4-disc boxset, complete with an interview with the late, great Christopher Lee. (I have the normal version).

Exceptional taste, that's up there with the best British films of all time!
Tall In The Saddle said on 29/Feb/20
@Tall Sam
Pretty sure you can view all 3 of those movies on YouTube. I recollect a reasonable number of scenes of them together to allow for an averaged out comparison. Just IMO Lee appears at least more than 1” taller and very arguable for a 1.5” max. advantage.
Tall Sam said on 27/Feb/20
I didn't realize that Lee ever co-starred with Donald Sutherland but upon research did so 3 times apparently, not exactly surprisingly since (despite appearing in some great films and always being eminently watchable) they were both in for quantity over quality a lot of the time. There's only 2 stills I could find of them, and unfortunately you can say Sutherland is standing much closer to the camera in one (giving Lee a disadvantage) and the other Lee is closer and Sutherland is slouching.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 25/Feb/20
@ Tall in The Saddle and Ian C - The first picture says it all! No way was the Mad Monk 6ft4, and the belief that he might have been stems from the fact that Christopher Lee played him so convincingly.

@ Tall Sam - I caught the end of the film 'Dr Terror's House of Horrors' the other evening, a film from 1965 which I know very well. Christopher Lee was noticeably taller than the 6ft3.5 Donald Sutherland when all the men got off the train, definitely more than one stingy inch! Lee could even have been 6ft5 back then!

Cheers guys! 😁😁😁
Tall Sam said on 24/Feb/20
I'd agree with Sandy Cowell, I think Lee was really quite close to 6'5", 6'4.75" is the best fit for his mid-day peak. A quarter inch is hard to prove but the guy IMO would comfortably edge anyone in the 6'4" flat range even at the age where a lot of men started to shrink.
Tall In The Saddle said on 23/Feb/20
@Ian C and Sandy

Interesting sideline on Lee as Rasputin. Years ago I saw a stage production of Rasputin and they cast a very tall, easy 6'4", actor in the lead role. It seems that height has long been synonymous with the historical figure. Online bios claim "documented" testimonies to 6'4" by people who met or saw the Mad Monk. I've never read the actual testimonies.
However, I've also never read written arguments against the well circulated height of 6'4" until Ian's post citing the book Nicholas and Alexandra. Ian is well read. Until now I only saw photos for myself which indicated that Rasputin was somewhat below 6'4" but perhaps a bit tall for his time.
Thanks to the wonder of the internet, I chased up some of those photos I recalled.
Click Here
Click Here
It is also handy to reach out to contemporary newspaper articles which might contain early truths that have since been exaggerated. The following linked 1914 article describes the still living Rasputin as a man of medium height, as Ian suggested,

I'll defer to the team and ask, is there enough evidence to say Myth busted? Also, a shout out to Boney M. and "Ra ra Rasputin...…..". Busted some moves to that song back in the day.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 20/Feb/20
Hey, Ian C! I was just roving over to the great Christopher Lee's page to express how pleased I was to wake up the other morning to his voice on my TV in my favourite of his films, 'The Devil Rides Out', in which he plays a good and knowledgeable nobleman, when I came across your thoroughly entertaining comment about the Mad Monk, Grigori Rasputin.

I hadn't really thought about whether or not he was good-looking, to be quite honest. I did think, however, that he was fearsome to look at. Sir Christopher certainly was a handsome specimen, but I think his portrayal of Rasputin suggested that the monk was ugly inside, and that's what matters more than anything, one's character often coming over in one's face. His chilling performance, which I saw when I was in my teens, left me with the impression that he was cruel and rough, and definitely someone to be feared, but I did think that he was kind of on the tall side, yes! Coupled with the information doled out by many a history book, one is left thinking that he was tall, and this is hammered home by Lee's very convincing performance of him, which I have reason to believe is going to be shown on the Horror Channel in the near future.

I'm always interested in the way facts are presented, and for dramatic effect, a tall, more powerful Rasputin is likely to draw in more money to the box offices. On the day I found out that it was his birthday, I was shocked that he was an Aquarian, because they're meant to be the humanitarians of the Zodiac, and humanitarian is the last word I'd use to describe Rasputin! That he allowed for himself to be depicted either alone or with some malnourished, small peasant woman does indeed suggest that he wanted to be taller, and might even have been hung up about his height, lashing out in ways that his level of power permitted back then, but it wasn't even that long ago! He can thank his lucky stars that the paparazzi hadn't been around those days because there wouldn't have been anything he could have squirrelled away from them in the height department!

Cheers Ian and thanks for your interesting comment! 😉👍 Sandy XX

Sir Christopher Lee gets 6ft4.75.
Ian C. said on 6/Feb/20
Actually, Sandy, Rasputin's height is debatable. At least one account (the well-researched book Nicholas and Alexandra) says that he was a man of average height. It is possible that the claim that Rasputin was six foot four is based on the rather strange belief that Christopher Lee actually looked like the real Rasputin. (Who was not a handsome man.)

Most photos of Rasputin are of him alone, with no one else in the picture for comparison. There is a picture of Rasputin with a Russian peasant woman, and he towers over her. Of course, she might have been just a very short woman.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 21/Jan/20
I saw a film about 'The Mad Monk', Grigori Rasputin, when I was still in my teens. Today I found out that Rasputin was born 151 years ago today, so I checked out his height. He was all of 6ft4, so it's entirely justified that Sir Christopher Lee should have played him.

The film showed the Politician at his most violent - and I was quite disgusted! 😃👍

The late, great Christopher gets 6ft4.5.
movieguy12 said on 19/Jan/20
I read that Lee was told he was too tall and dark to play an Englishman when he starting out as an actor. I suppose in acting if you don't look the part you don't get the part. Fairly or not looks are very important in acting. He made it work though and his distinctive looks became an advantage.

Editor Rob,

Who would you say was teller at their peaks, Christopher Lee or Liam Neeson, and how much would you put between them?
Editor Rob
I would still give Lee a slightly taller peak than Liam, however Liam could be a 6ft 4 and 1/8th as he seemed to indicate he measured a little bit over it in his prime.
Ian C. said on 29/Dec/19
You are a generous man, Rob, in that you often tend to give people the benefit of the doubt when they make questionable claims. If Lee was tall in an era when people were shorter than they are today, this would have made his height even more of an advantage. I once stayed for two weeks in a rural village in Mexico. The people in the village were all short, and few of them had ever seen a movie or a tv show, so most of them had never seen anyone as tall as I was. And all I got from those people was admiration.

What I think Lee was doing in complaining about his height was trying to mitigate other people's resentment of the privileges his height afforded him. It's like beautiful women again. They know that they get serious privileges as a result of their looks, and they know that this isn't strictly fair, and they expect plain people to resent them for it. So they to try on that story that beauty can have disadvantages. (Which, to tell the truth, it really does, because they have to develop graceful strategies for rejecting platoons of unworthy suitors.)
Ian C. said on 29/Dec/19
I tell you, Rob, that none of Lee's complaints about being tall are borne out in my own experience. I have never been in the driver's seat of even a small car and been unable to comfortably operate its controls, as long as the seat was all the way back. I can sit normally in a movie theatre without bumping my knees on the seat in front. I have never bumped my head on the top of a doorway. I sleep in a bed that is a two feet longer than I am. I do have to have pant legs lengthened by a tailor, but that's about it.

And sure, I get a lot of You Are Tall comments from people on first meeting, but that's a good thing. It's not as if they're insulting you. (The same people would never dream of mentioning the height of a short man on first meeting, because that would be quite rude.)

Six foot four is for me a lovely height. You're tall enough to stand out (which I have always thought of as a good thing), but you're not over the line into freak territory, which starts at about six foot six.

I have never had a tall man say to me, I wish I wasn't so tall. It would never occur to me to say that. Lee is the only tall man I have ever heard of who wasn't actually a giant (like, say, Richard Kiel) who complained about his height. In his case, this was absurd. He got his big break in Hammer horror movies in roles that required a tall actor. Frankly, I think the guy was being fake-humble, like those insufferable women who complain that they feel handicapped by physical beauty.
Editor Rob
You have to remember Lee at 6ft 4.5 in the 1950's and 60's is the equivalent of being 6ft 6.5 range in the UK today.
Ian C. said on 28/Dec/19
Lee said, "there are quite a few disadvantages to being tall, especially in Britain?" Really? There are none here in Canada, pal. I'm six foot four myself, and I have never known so much as a split second's regret about it. I would describe my attitude about my height as "smug."
Editor Rob
The rest of what he was talking about:
"Cars are made to be steered by pygmies. The only buildings with doorways of sufficient clearance for men of my stature are cathedrals. The normal sizes of cricket bats and golf clubs look like conductors' wands in my hands...Trousers and shirts for the tall man have to be made privately. He is obliged to sit in the back row of the cinema...Long before he had done anything to justify his being the cynosure of all eyes, he is conspicuous in any gathering as soon as he enters the room. In most strange beds he will find himself obliged to sleep diagonally. Waggish strangers feel free to address him as 'Lofty' or 'Tiny' before they ever learn his real name. I went through my school days in a constant state of embarrassment that I could never be overlooked."
Ian C. said on 17/Dec/19
Christopher Lee actually may have killed people at close quarters during World War II. He was some kind of secret agent, I think. Handy for subtext if you're going to play an undead serial killer.

Dracula in the book is described as tall, so Lee had that going for him. The book Dracula has a moustache, which none of the movie Draculas ever did.
Tall Sam said on 5/Dec/19
@Alex Katch, interesting idea, maybe deserving of its own celebheights page, as I think Dracula rivals Sherlock Holmes as the most widely represented character on film (I could be off).

In terms of Max Schreck, his height was a bit a mystery wasn't it? You'd guess based on his frame that he was taller than average (in Germany in the 1920s). He fairly towers over Gustav von Wangenheim who plays the Jonathan Harker-type character but doesn't stand next to others much in that film. On the other hand, people generally averaged shorter back then and I'm not sure he was nearly as big as his director, F.W. Murnau, who was 6'4".

A bit off topic, maybe, but I am curious as to the height of Lady Lee. Having read “Tall, Dark and Gruesome”, Sir Lee comments on his height with regards to dancing — (paraphrased) most dancing partners found their nose facing his chest. My apologies, I mean no disrespect for the Lees. I adored him, and Lady Lee is an icon.
Mon said on 22/Nov/19
Spot on. Watched an in depth interview in eighties on daytime tv (there was a different British actor reminiscing each episode) in which he said that is how tall he was. Also said when he started acting there was no English actor over 6'2'' and it was difficult to get work because of his height, so the early self downgrade was likely for purely career reasons.
Nearly 180cm guy said on 19/Nov/19
I wonder how fast Lee lost his height. Rob, I can believe that, as you said when he met you, he was almost 6'3" because in 2005 he looked good 6 inches taller than Ian McDiarmid who was probably 5'8.75" at that time: Click Here
For comparison, I found two photos of Lee next to Johnny Depp, the first is from 2006: Click Here
The second photo is from 2010 and the difference in height between them looks much smaller: Click Here
I believe that in 2005-6 Lee was probably 6'2.75 "and at the time of meeting James Woods in 1998 he could have 6'3.25" and at the age of 80 in 2002 he still had a full 6'3". I also found more photos of Lee along with Samuel L Jackson, Hayden and Lucas from 2002: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
You can also look at the videos: Click Here Click Here Click Here
It is strange that in one photo the difference between Lee and Samuel looks large: Click Here
On the other photo, the difference between them looks small again: Click Here
The sidewalk can actually play tricks, but keep in mind that Lee had thicker shoes than Samuel so I still see 6'2.25" as a better option for Samuel's peak height. Rob, your thoughts?
Editor Rob
6ft 2 or 2.25 is what I could see for Samuel, though as I've mentioned in the past to you, I am not certain whether 2.25 is a better's up in the air!

The film that scared me more as a youngster than any other, 'The Devil Rides Out', is on tonight on the Horror Channel at 6.55 and repeated at 11am tomorrow morning. In my youth, they wouldn't have shown it until very late! It is my favourite Christopher Lee film because he plays a nobleman who has studied the dark arts well enough to know NOT to mess with them. He plays his part so well, and is knowledgeable and beautifully spoken, which he was anyway!

I often think that this film is semi auto biographical of author Dennis Wheatley, who had himself studied the occult and would only sell his fact-based books with a safety emulet. I read all about him when I was 15. He died a year later.

I look forward to seeing Christopher (again!) in tonight's film. He was 45/46 at the making of it, in 1968, according to my TV magazine, though I used to think it had been made earlier, so I will double check this fact. Whether it was 1967 or 1968, Sir Christopher Lee will have surely been at his peak height.

He can have 6ft5. 💕👍
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 15/Oct/19
I just read on Sean Connery's page a very interesting comment by Ian C, stating that Sir Christopher Lee was considered too tall at his 6ft4 - 6ft5/5 to play James Bond himself. I thought that a little on the odd side as regards the decision makers, since Sean is 6ft2 and Daniel Craig only just tops 5ft10, making a by no means insignificant 3 and 3 quarter inch difference between the two actors. Well, there is a 2 and-a-half inch difference between Christopher and Sean, so why should Christopher's height have been responsible for losing him the part.

I know that this sort of thing is rife in the film world, but Bond, not unlike the actors chosen to play Dr Who, should be able to be any height! Perhaps they thought that Christopher would excel as a super villain instead, which he did, and an excellent job he did at that!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 30/Sep/19
On Saturday night, Film Four showed the uncut version of 'The Wicker Man' and I decided to buy it because it comes as part of a 4-disc boxset, complete with an interview with the late, great Christopher Lee. (I have the normal version).

I did notice that there were some additional shocking touches to the final cut. The boxset arrived today and I can see before me that the actual Director's Cut is all of 15 minutes longer than the Theatrical version. The one shown by Film Four was the Final Cut - I think!

Considered by some to be one of the scariest horror scenes of all time in a very entertaining programme I once saw back in the 90s, I watched as the bewigged Lord Summerisle (Lee) danced, arms flailing, as he led the procession of dressed-up pagans, each representing something of relevance, to the destination where they were to perform the ritual sacrifice of poor Edward Woodward, who was burnt alive with a collection of animals, many of them baby ones, who screamed pitifully as the revolting huge Wicker Man was burnt. Edward, who played Sergeant Howie, was praying out loud all the time to God and Jesus. My brother noticed tears running down my face as he asked God 'not to forget him.'

Christopher Lee stood out as the tallest cast member by far. The film was made in 1973, making the actor 50 or 51 at the time, so doubtless at his full height.

I read he was 6ft5 peak but will have been a bit less at bedtime and a bit more fresh out of bed.

I have decided on 6ft4.75 for this talented legend of an actor and War hero 🏆🎖️
Tall In The Saddle said on 31/Aug/19
If not exactly 6'5" Lee was very close - in a couple of movies with Donald Sutherland he was easily taller by 1" and held up to a reasonably estimated 1.5" advantage. Here's a quick visual grab
Click Here.
Lee also held 1" advantage over Vincent Price on THIS IS YOUR LIFE. Sutherland was always taller than Eastwood. IMO Lee would've appeared 1.5" taller than Eastwood if they stood together. I would've thought maybe there would be a pic of iconic Brits Cleese and Lee together at peak - in the 60s/70s - no such luck finding any so far.

This particular actor from Hobbit definitely has longest legs that I've ever seen just like Importer said. May be super duper long legs with bit shorter torsos... Well, I am actually Fat dude with longer legs than other fat men with bit shorter torso like similar body proportion with him.. 6ft 4 is the best guessed height for him at least!!!
Ian C. said on 21/Jul/19
While I do think that Lee was taller than Clint Eastwood (but by less than an inch), Lee seems so much taller because he is quite thin, and has a smaller head. The young Christopher Lee can be seen wearing a sleeveless shirt in the movie The Battle of the River Plate. He has sticks for arms, and narrow shoulders. You couldn't cast him as a boxer, like the one Eastwood played in those movies with the Orangutan.

Eastwood is quite a bit heavier (and liked to lift weights), and has a head the size of a packing crate.
Importer said on 18/Jul/19
RIP. The longest legs I have ever seen.
Tall Sam said on 16/Jul/19
It'd be hard to determine a mere cm difference. I think he and I are similar looking heights, evening I'd say 6'4.5" is typical and near his lowest peak height, mid-day more 6'4.75".
Dan Dadley said on 14/Jul/19
The intensity that contributors put into arguing over a quarter of an inch on someone the have only seen in films makes me laugh!
David duFresne said on 9/Jul/19
Feels like the site is getting too stingy with the heights. I've known several guys who were 6'4 flat. It's not a common height, but it isn't an unusual height either, if that makes sense. Lee wouldn't have stuck out the way he did unless he was 6'5 or so. Where I'm from only women make a big deal if a guy is that height, although people may refer to him as "the big guy". 6'6 is a totally different universe though. You almost never see guys that height and they will start to get stared at. 6'5 is a nice height I think. Most people will acknowledge it, but not stare at a guy that height. Lee was clearly tall in a way that 6'4 actors like Eastwood and Price weren't. I've measured 5'8, but I still claim 5'7 flat as I only measure that tall if it is a morning doctor's appointment. Apparently so many people lie that a number of people have insisted I'm 5'9 or something and since I don't like arguing about nonsense I'll just say that I haven't measured myself in a long time and it is possible. Who knows why Lee said 6'4, but if that is all he really was than a lot of actors need to move down an inch on here and it would mess everything up.

I'm beginning to believe that Sir Lee may have been a quarter inch taller, prior to World War 2.

Peter Snow would definitely be taller than Christopher Lee, but 195 cm is arguable for Sir Lee.

Another tall guy with a deep voice. (Also, a reasonably competent singer.) I wonder if there really is a correlation between height and depth of voice. There are probably too many exceptions to say for sure.

On that theme, I wonder how tall Thurl Ravenscroft was. Ravenscroft was the voice of Tony the Tiger and the Jolly Green Giant, and the singer of the song, "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" in the How theGrinch Who Stole Christmas cartoon. He sounds as if he should be six foot six.

I think something is wrong with Lee's pictures next to Samuel L. Jackson from 2002. Just look at this picture: Click Here
It seems that Lee had a lot of thicker shoes than Samuel, except that in this photo Samuel is bent backwards while Lee stands tall with good posture. In other photos of Lee and Samuel, Hayden and George Lucas are also standing next to them: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
Hayden, like Samuel, had less footwear than Lee and Lucas had already worn big high heels. In these pictures, Hayden may look just a little shorter than Samuel, but his hair definitely helps him to look taller than he is really. It's true that in these pictures Lee looks much taller than Samuel (although Lee has thicker shoes) but there is something that makes me doubt, look on this photo: Click Here
In this picture, Lee looks barely taller than Samuel and Hayden, it's weird. Another strange thing is this photo: Click Here
In this picture, Lee again is barely taller than Samuel, except that Samuel looks here at least two inches taller than Hayden despite Hayden's hair. Perhaps camera angles can sometimes increase or decrease the height differences between several people. Rob, I have two important questions:
1. What do you think about these photos?
2. How important is the camera angle if we want to compare the height of several people?
Editor Rob
It is a pavement/sidewalk from the looks of it, so not impossible one side benefits a little, plus it might be not much (1/4 to 1/3rd) but samuel/hayden could have less footwear. Sam's heel looks small.
berta said on 19/Apr/19
I think he could have been the full 6 foot 5. How tall do we believe samuel l jackson was back in 2002 when Lee edged him out with 2 inches at around 80 years of age? If lee was194 peak and down to 191 at that time, then Samuel was not a mm over 185, if we go by the photos of them together. I think 6 foot 5 peak. and 192,5 during star wars. Then couple years later when rob meet him, down to 191.

Two questions Height Master Rob:

1) Are you convinced that in their physical primes, John Cleese would measure taller than Sir Christopher ?

2) At age 80 Mr.Cleese is currently sitting at 6’ “3.5. Here is a picture of Christopher Lee at a Star Wars premier circa 2002 (note Samuel L. Jackson next to him) where he would’ve been 78-80 yrs old. How tall would you put Sir Christopher there, and who would you say held their height better/longer?

Here is the link : Click Here

Editor Rob
Lee could still look near 6ft 4 in that photo, but in person 4 years later I just don't think he was over 6ft 3....but then Cleese nowadays can look not that much over 6ft 3 either, but probably still measures 6ft 3.5 range.
Dream said on 23/Mar/19
Because Sir Lee was extremely active in World War 2, I’m beginning to wonder if he was a quarter-inch taller than 6’4.5” before World War 2.
'Annonymous' said on 17/Mar/19
Rob, I think you should once again consider the number 6'4.75" for Lee. In the 40s he started his career and was rarely seen, but in the 50s, 60s and 70s Lee could really look close to 6'5". The fact that at the moment you met with you he was at least 6'2.5" and in the late 90s he was still 6'3". I think that in the 80s and 90s Lee lost a large part of his height. Please take a look at this photo from 1966 where Lee is next to Catherine Deneuve, Raquel Welch, Woody Allen, Ursula Andress, Dirk Bogarde, Julie Christie and Bill Travers, he looked like a giant:
Click Here
Lee really looked at least a footer taller than Woody Allen. Here's another group photo from 1979 where Lee is next to Anthony Quinn, Patricia Neal, James Mason and Kay Lenz:
Click Here
Besides, you could see Lee next to Herve Villechaise, Roger Moore and Britt Ekland, Herve definitely looked no more than 3'10" next to Lee even if Lee was close to 6'5" and the difference between Lee and Moore looked at least like three and a half inches. Please look at these photos:
Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
I think Moore as 186 cm is ok but Lee really could be a 195 cm guy. Rob, maybe 6'4.75" would be more reasonable?
Editor Rob
I'm still ok with 6ft 4.5, Lee himself didn't really go over 6ft 4 with his claim, though I think most folk estimate he looked taller than that. 6ft 5 I feel is just too much, though of course 6ft 4.75 isn't ruled out entirely.
movieguy12 said on 16/Mar/19
Lee was either 6'4'' or 6'5'' or somewhere in between. It appears that he gave both heights for himself on different occasions. His height was originally a problem when he tried to break into acting as he was told he was too tall. Also he was told he was too dark and foreign looking to play Englishmen. At this time I suppose there was a very stereotyped view of what an actor should look like. Thankfully he proved the doubters wrong and entertained the public with many wonderful performances. I'd consider him to be one of the greats of cinema. The Hammer films were sometimes considered trashy by critics but were very respected by many of the great American directors of the 1970s in my understanding. I think that people who make movies are usually better judges of what makes a good movie than people who write about them.
Mister lennon said on 12/Mar/19
Lee at 6'1 or 6'2 is ridiculous and absurd. He was a strong 6'4 minimun. And probably a flat or solid 6'5.

This photo clearly shows that Christopher Lee was not even 6'2. I would say he was around 1,87m on a very good day, otherwise around 1,86m in his older days...and when it comes to his peak height, I think he probably was never over 1,90m (6'3)....based on this photo :)

By the way, this photo was taken somewhere in 2008.
Rising174cm said on 14/Feb/19
6'4.5" is believable for his peak. Probably more 6'4" flat by the time of this interview if Wogan was 6'0": Click Here Of course, Christopher was 62, almost 63 so it lends some credence to a peak above 6'4". Not that height in any way makes a man, but it is fitting that such an impressive man would also be 6'4"+, especially with the baritone he had.
Sandy Cowell said on 4/Jan/19
@ Banaanas - Christopher Lee was famous for being extremely tall. I once was watched a programme on him entitled, 'Tall, Dark and Gruesome', hailing back to the nineties, when he was still very much alive, and it was only the then that I realised he was so tall!

I don't think the 'Lord of the Rings' is a good film trilogy in which to judge people's heights anyway! Just ask Peter Jackson why!

I popped back to tell you that I 'won' the auction, and now I'll be able to watch 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers' for the first time in many years, complete with Jeff Goldblum, Donald Sutherland, Leonard Nimoy and who knows who else, for I know it is a film rich with stars! The last time I saw it, I wasn't anywhere nearly as interested in celebs as I am now....

@Sandy - yes a fan off horror/sci fi (including good old Hammer Horrors) but I only became aware of those two movies via your post.

I like a good scare but the more you have seen the less likely you'll get the fright you're looking for - at least for me. One movie that scared the e out of me when very young was THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN 1957. The title suggests your typical dodgy B-grade movie but it is actually several notches above - and it is somewhat topical to mention on a height related site - Lol.

Btw, IF it's just a normal DVD player you have and associated DVD disc you're after - you might be able to obtain a code online that is input via your remote to make your player multi region - that would open you up to ordering whatever region is available. However, I don't think you can do same if it's in respect of Blu Ray.

@ Tall In The Saddle - I am bidding for a copy of 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers' on eBay! It isn't easy to get hold of a Region 2 copy - and I didn't expect it to be either!
Sandy Cowell said on 14/Dec/18
@ Tall In The Saddle - Hi again! What an interesting reply! I actually saw 'Dr Terror's House of Horrors' on the 'Horror Channel', which shows it fairly often. I don't think I've ever seen 'The Castle if the Living Dead'; I'm fairly sure I'd remember a film which stars Christopher Lee and Donald Sutherland together. Having watched Mr Lee towering over an entire roomful of people in 'Dr Terror's House of Horrors', it was a surprising to see anyone nearing his height at the very end of the film, and that someone was Donald Sutherland, but I swear that the difference between the two was noticeable, and I can't believe that the young Donald was ever 6ft4. 6ft3.5 is fine, but at that time, the 43-year-old Christopher Lee really did look 1 and-a-half inches taller and that is why he got 6ft5 from me on Sunday.

I haven't seen 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers' for many years now, and I might even order myself a copy because it's the best of its kind, with the mighty and often comical Jeff Goldblum, Donald Sutherland - and wasn't Leonard Nimoy in it too? That's done it! I'm going to see whether it's possible to buy a copy on Amazon!!!! The opportunities for height comparisons are many, and the plot is original and still as new and fresh as ever it was!

Great to chat to you, as always, Tall In The Saddle; you do know your horror films, don't you? 😉👍

Lee would still be 6ft 3 range there, Woods can seem around 5ft 11.

@Sandy - Dr Terrors House of Horrors - nice find! Full length movie avail on YouTube - which is perhaps where you saw it. I also found Sutherland in another horror with Lee - THE CASTLE OF THE LIVING DEAD - again full length movie online

I would never have thought to check on Lee and Sutherland together in a photo much less a movie but these two movies present nice opportunities (however brief) to compare the two. This site has Sutherland at 6'3.5" - though he was often listed at 6'4". Personally I think he might've been closer to 6'4" than 6'3.5".

In INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS Sutherland appeared almost equal to or marginally edged by better postured young Jeff Goldblum who IMO was a bit more than 6'4" at best - probably around 6'4.25".

I'll further cross reference and say that Lee held greater advantage over Sutherland than Goldblum held at any point in INVASTION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS - so if were to stand next to Goldblum Lee's advantage would still be clear

Lee is taller than Sutherland for sure - I don't know that he has more than inch on Sutherland though - perhaps he did - because some angles give Lee better advantage - but at any rate Sutherland's exact height is a real key for me - if Sutherland was 6'3.5" I might remain with Lee at 6'4.5" but if the Donald was taller - then Lee's height (with maintained 1" advantage at least) goes up accordingly for me. I will say that I think 6'4" Vincent Price appeared to stand closer to Lee's height than Sutherland did so Sutherland doesn't appear the full 6'4".

I can only repeat height estimation is by no means an exact science but it still makes for interesting light discussion - and a great excuse to watch snippets of old classics.

If anyone wants to see Christopher Lee looking nearly a minimum of a head taller than a whole roomful of people, take a look at him in 'Dr Terror's House of Horrors'! The film also stars Donald Sutherland, who we don't see standing with him until the very end, and he himself is well over 6ft, but no way as much as Mr Lee!

I have no alternative than to succumb to giving him 6ft5! 🤣
Jordan87 said on 3/Dec/18
I Got him at 6'4.5", But If I had to guess In the earlier hrs he was closer to 6'5" than 6'4". Tall Man, Deep Voice, dominating presence in a room.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 18/Nov/18

I was looking more into Christopher Lee, and I thought he was more in the 6'4.5"-6'4.75". I also have a feeling that Sir Lee 'could' have 'potentially lost' height after World War 2.

I was wondering what your take on this speculation would be. Let me know!
Dream(5'9.5") said on 31/Oct/18
@Mister lennon

I understand. He can look slightly closer to 6'5" flat than 6'4".

I do think 6'4" is too low.
Mister lennon said on 30/Oct/18
Dream, i said 6'5 flat, not 6'4.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 28/Oct/18
@Tall Sam

Technically speaking, Bo Svenson did look slightly taller than Clint Walker, but that's more of the camera doing it's tricks, and both of them were standing on snow, a surface not so great for judging height. I'd say 6'5.25" for Bo Svenson is better (similar to 6'5.25" Bo Burnham).

What I'm thinking is that Christopher Lee could have been a 6'4.5"-6'4.75" range even after World War 2. I'm beginning to think that World War 2 'may' have caused Lee to shrink a little. Keep in mind, Lee started his 'acting career' after World War 2.

I do agree that he could have been nearer 6'4.75", and 6'4" flat is certainly too low. He visibly edged out easy 6'4" guys like Vincent Price.
Tall Sam said on 25/Oct/18
I think the average guess might be around right, I'd tend to lean towards 6'4.75" than 6'4.5" but it's hard to say.

IMO Bo Svenson might have been more like 6'5.25" or maybe even 6'5.5" peak, I think he looked properly huge in North Dallas Forty with other listed guys such as Nick Nolte. He looked similar size to me as guys like Clives Russell & Mantle and would've probably just edged the somewhat overlisted (IMO) Nick Cassavetes.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 25/Oct/18
@Mister Lemon

I think 6’4” flat is too low for Lee. I think Lee can pull of a weak 6’5” more than a strong 6’4”.

That’s also taking into account Lee’s World War 2 duties for years.
Mister lennon said on 24/Oct/18
Dream, agree that people like cleese or svenson would beat lee at peak, but a very sligtly.
I think that a full peak lee could be a flat 6'5. There are chances or a strong 6'4 or a solid 6' 5 peak. He could be both of them. There are true chances on both. But i think that the winner bet is a flat 6'5.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 23/Oct/18
Keep in mind, Christopher Lee was active in World War 2, for many years, before he started his acting career.

I'm not saying I'm 100% certainly Lee could have lost height, but I consider it a possibility, based on what I've read from Lee's time and days in the Second Great War.

Of course, I still think a full 6'5" is too high, but I think Lee could have fallen into that 6'4.5"-6'4.75" range.
oooaaaa said on 22/Oct/18
I would say 6'5". this guy is massive
Dream(5'9.5") said on 22/Oct/18
@mister lemon

I wouldn’t call Lee a 6’5.25” guy. I think John Cleese or Bo Svenson will edge him out at peak.

I do think 6’4” flat is certainly too low for Lee.
Sandy Cowell said on 21/Oct/18
@ Dream(5'9.5") - That information you sent in I will refer back to again and again! I sent off for an autographed picture of Christopher Lee, so you see, I really am an admirer of his. I, too, would give anything to travel back in time to meet and speak to him! Good on you, Dream, and thanks once again!
Mister lennon said on 20/Oct/18
I think that he could be a true 6'5 peak. A flat one or a solid one.
Tall Sam said on 19/Oct/18
I agree with an old comment by Dream(5'9.5"), he could look equal height with Charles Barkley.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 19/Oct/18
If he wished to claim 6'5", he could get away with it.

I don't think Vince Vaughn, Tim Robbins, or even Usain bolt would be any taller than a Peak Christopher Lee.
Dream(5'9.5 said on 17/Oct/18
Rob, based on the information given, could World War 2 activities have 'potentially' made Lee shrink to a slightly lower height?

Maybe I'm wrong though.
Editor Rob
If they impacted his spine, it's a chance.
Sandy Cowell said on 15/Oct/18
@ Dream (5ft9.5) - I've just read the information you sent in and it is FASCINATING! It even mentioned the execution Lee witnessed, and that he knew the names of all the executioners dating back centuries. It also pegged him at 6ft5! Wonderful stuff, and a big "thank you" from me for sending it in! 😀👍
Sandy Cowell said on 15/Oct/18
@ Dream (5ft9.5) - That was a really interesting read! I know that Christopher Lee also saw the beheading of a man in the late 1930's when he was still in his teens. He must have had enormous strength of personality to overcome what scars many people for life and go on to make a massive career as an actor.

You're so right - the guy's an absolute legend! 👍

6ft5 at his tallest time of day.
6ft4.75 I reckon, average day's height.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 19/Sep/18
Rob, this is only my assumption, this isn't facts nor truths.

I assume that Christopher Lee held onto height very well. However, I think he could've lost height after World War 2. I mean, he was directly involved in World War 2. In fact, according to Lee himself, he could've literally died in some of the battles. He climbed Mount Vesuvius three days before it erupted. He also had five missions a day. He fought the Nazis in North Africa.

Rob, I'm not saying he definitely lost a little height post-World War 2, but I do believe he's 'could' have lost a bit of height. He's done a lot more physical work than one would believe.

This man is a true legend.
Neelasish Sen Roy said on 4/Sep/18
As per Guinness World Record Lee and vince vaughn are the tallest leading actor. Since you have tell me that lee was solid 6'4.5" then vince vaughn would be same. Is my opnion is right? Rob?
Ian C. said on 28/Jun/18
I can certainly forgive Lee for fudging his height downwards, Rob. He was trying to get work, his height was a potential disqualifier from employment, so he downgraded an inch or two. This wouldn't have been that dishonest, because a six foot five inch man can slouch himself down to six foot three without too much trouble. Six foot four is probably pretty accurate as his real, everyday height. Most people give their heights as measured when they are standing as tall as they can, and craning their necks. So most people, even if they are citing an accurate measured height, are an inch or so shorter than that height in actual fact.

Although even a few inches of height can be quite distinctive. Lee has a brief part in Captain Horatio Hornblower, with Gregory Peck. Peck towers over most of the actors in the movie, and then Lee shows up and towers over him, if only for about twenty seconds of screen time. This happens during a sword fight, so both actors are moving around with their knees flexed, and yet Lee is clearly taller than Peck.
Editor Rob
I remember in the film Devil Rides Out with Leon Greene, Lee could look near 2 inches taller. Leon was another guy who potentially did round down as he too used to get listed 6ft 2 in his earlier years, though could seem taller.
Ian C. said on 28/Jun/18
Lee always said that he was six foot four. He was very specific about it, and I can't find any instance where he claimed to be anything else. Certainly he was at least that height and, if he was really six foot five, was still putting himself in the correct general category.

And height is more of a category than a discrete number. John Wayne claimed six foot four and, even if he was really only six foot three, was still in the category of "very tall." Yul Brynner on the other hand, who was probably about five foot eight, claimed five foot eleven. That was cheating, because he was bumping himself up from "average-sized" to "pretty tall." He was not just misstating his height, he was promoting himself to a higher status category.

Paul Newman is an interesting case, because he just flat-out refused to tell people how tall he was. I defy you to show me a single interview where the interviewer was allowed to ask Newman his height. He was probably about five foot nine, which is a perfectly respectable height for a real live human being, but too short for the hero of a movie. Most movie heroes are understood to be six-footers, and Newman went around acting as if he were the same person he played in the movies. Which might have been something of a strain.
Editor Rob
He did start out in younger years having his height listed 6ft 3 in Spotlight, before he changed to 6ft 4.

Dream(5'9.5") said on 16/Jun/18
I would say Christopher Lee would edge out a peak Dolph Lungdren and Jeff Goldglum.

He'd fall into a similar range like a peak Charles Barkley without question.
Neelasish Sen Roy said on 16/Jun/18
I think he is weak in 6'5" like Tim Robbins, Dolph Lungdren and Jeff Goldglum. They all are 6'4.5"/194cm. Satyajit Ray was not tall as Goldblum Stated in his height. Ray is same as Sean Connery 6'2.5" as Bachchan. Alan Napier was 6'5" at barefoot and he was so lean that he seems 6'6". Sir Christopher Lee was 6'4.5" in Barefoort and 6'5" with shoes. He never Wore Heels. But I think he is 6'4.75" tall an inch over John Wayne who is 6'3.75" tall. Rock Hudson had stated he is 6'5" but he looks between 6'4"-6'4.75" near lee's Height Range 6'4.5"-6'5".

Rob, there is a saying ‘the taller you are, the shorter your lifespan is.’

I don’t necessarily agree with it, since Christopher Lee lived up to his early 90’s.

There are some studies out there hinting there's a link to shortness and a bit more longevity.

Editor Rob
The odds might be better he'd measure near 5/8th than 3/8th, though I'm still happy with right in between 6ft 4 and 5.
James B 170.8cm said on 26/Feb/18
Rob he was already 52 in man with the golden gun.

Do you think he could have been under 6ft4.5 like 6ft4.5 by that point.
Editor Rob
Small fraction maybe...but some men definitely reach early 50's with nothing noticeable, while others seem to shift their first half inch or so by then.

Christopher Lee (at age 80) actually looked taller than a peak 'Dwayne Johnson' (comparing them both to a peak Samuel L Jackson).
Jordan87 said on 5/Feb/18

Sir Lee had Samuel L by 3" and Hayden by 4" when he was aged 80. Hayden hovers right at around 6 foot most of the time. And jackson is Leaning back but Lee is leaning in so not sure that Offsets but this is to show that even at age 80, When most men are a good 1-1/2" shorter than their Prime height, Lee still towered other tall, much younger men.

The man had to have been 6'4.5 in his prime, possibly waking in the morning at around 6'5.
Jordan87 said on 2/Feb/18
@ Dream ( 5'9.5"),

6'4.75 is very possible as well with this guy. 6'4" Flat I would Argue is a tad low.

I’d argue 6’4.75” for Christopher Lee.
Jordan87 said on 1/Feb/18
@ Cob,

6'5-1/2" is pushing it. The man Reported 6'4 and said it was the reason he lost roles. Lee is probably one of those people like my father who doesn't feel to need to round up with his height, but rather round down.

Lee was probably 6'4.5 and reported 6'4. My father was around 5'11 5/8" at age 19 and reported 5'11 and still does to this day.

Jordan87 said on 13/Dec/17
My Logic with Lee is he was 3" Taller than SOlid 6'0 Hayden Christensen and he was 80 years old at the time. AVG 80 Year old losses around 1-1/2" of Height ( taller people lose more I believe). The Minimum he could have been was 6'4.5" until he started hitting his 50's.

Lee can look much taller than Vincent Price here in this video at 2:27.

Though Vincent might have lost a fraction by then and the camera angle is in Lee’s favor, Vincent did have ‘better posture’ and Christopher Lee was still much taller.

If Lee came with a ‘6’5” claim,’ no one is going to question since he’s rounding down with a 6’4” claim but he’s obviously taller than 6’4” flat.
Dreampuffe(5'9.5") said on 10/Dec/17

Though Sir Christopher Lee was noted for being exceptionally tall, dark and gruesome, he was not exactly 6ft 5in as others have put him to be, since he and others who had worked with him say he was a bit less than that. 
However, one would say that him being 6ft 4in would pararrel his friend and colleague, Vincent Price, but the latter seems at least half an inch to an inch shorter than Lee, especially in the 1974 televised 'this is your life' where both men stand next to each other. 
Years later, when Lee and Price starred together in 'house of long shadows', Price seems at least 1 1/2 inch shorter than his counterpart when they are sipping wine together. But then Price was in his seventies so spinal disk might have shrunk a little. Price was quite definitely 6ft 4, which means Lee might have been at least 6ft 4.6 inch if not exactly 6'5".

He defnintly towered Roger Moore in Man with the Golden Gun didn't he?

Not much Difference eh? Prowse reports 6'6 ( and 6'7) and Lee Reports 6'4. I can tell you they aint no 2 to 3" between them.

Lee is downplaying his Height and Dave is inflated his.

Christopher Lee: 6'4.5"
Dave Prowse: 6'5 ( Tops)
Jordan87 said on 7/Dec/17
Rob has him at 6'4.5" and I think that is Accurate.


Awhile Back I posted Pictures of Christopher Lee and Dave Prowse both SEparately next to all time Legend Peter Cushing.

Prowse Claims 6'5, 6'6, and 6'7 ( Yes all in his prime) and Looked not much taller than Lee next to Cushing.

What this means to me is Either Lee is 6'6" or Prowse is 6'5 ( At times I think Prowse is below this height).

I'd Guess Lee's Range is 6'4.5" to 6'5 depending on what time of day you would measure him at 9 of course in his youth).

He even managed to still be a solid inch taller a peak Samuel L Jackson in his 80s! It’s rare to fine 80 year olds who are 6’3”!
