Rob, I noticed you also have Fess Parker pictured with Reagan in the Oval Office on his page!

Overall, I think Chucks holds up slightly better but by then both guys had probably lost a bit.

I can see Chuck being a weak 6ft6 and Fess a strong 6ft5 based on how they appear with same actors
Editor Rob
Reagan himself had lost a bit of height by that stage, so to might Fess have. Maybe half inch or so.

at his peak he was a guy that always looked over 6´5 flat. I dont agree with average guess of 196,3. To me he did look somewhere in the range of 196,5-197,5 and most likely legit 197. Just look at the photo above, he have very relaxed posture and is at an age where he most likely have lost a fracrtion and still pull of 6´5 if he stood tall he would look 197 beside reagan. Its not impossible he was almost 198 at peak.
Canson said on 23/Dec/22
@Slamo: he could look 6’5 and change there. Maybe this isn’t his low but instead a bit over his lunchtime and maybe he’s 6’5 3/8 around lunch and 6’5 1/4 evening or 1/8” taller. He didn’t look as low as 6’5” flat
Slamo said on 21/Dec/22
Looks 6-5 above imo
Tech noir said on 1/May/22
Legit big guy. 6-5 minimum peak. Made most guys look small
Canson said on 24/Apr/22
@Vincent: yea it’s a bit low. He’s at least 6’5.25-.5 range at a low imho
Vincent Caleb said on 22/Apr/22
Average guess is too low

Still looks enormous next to Reagan

Someone like Connors might have problems getting a career going in modem Hollywood since they are generally less tall leading men these days.

100 years after Chuck Connors was born

197.5 cm - 196.5 cm in my opinion
Hyper said on 24/Apr/21
He really looks like a mixture of Bo Burnham and Conan O'Brien. He has the bone structure and smile of Bo, but the hair of Conan.
Ian C. said on 21/Apr/21
Connors always seemed to be slouching, even when he was walking. It's as if he expected to go into a crouch at any second.

I've been watching old episodes of The Rifleman in Prime, and Connors is in an episode with Jerome Courtland, who was credibly listed at six foot four. Connors just seems bigger in every scene.
Hyper said on 10/Apr/21

A Masculine Bo Burnham, to say the least.

Bo is the most lanky 6’5.5” person on this site, as far as I can tell.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Apr/21
Oddly, Chuck sort of looks like an older Bo Burnham in that photo
Hyper said on 2/Apr/21
Seeing him with Larry Bird and being comfortably taller than Michael Jordan and looking almost the same as Magic Johnson in comparison, it's difficult to argue anything under this listing.

I'd put him slightly taller than Kawahi Leonard and closer to Anthony Joshua.

This would also argue a strong case for James Arness being a strong 6'6".
Black Noir said on 31/Mar/21
Hey rob connors was also in a show called werewolf alongside John J York. How tall do you think think John York is?
Editor Rob
would need to see more of John
recapa said on 7/Mar/21
6ft5.5 at least.
Canson said on 19/Jan/21
@Editor Rob: you have him listed as a bball player. He was a baseball player
Editor Rob
In the late 40's he did play some basketball for the Celtics
Canson said on 29/Nov/20
@Hyper: yea if he is taller than Draymond I could believe it. Carter on the other hand I have around Tom Hopper’s height or a flat 6’5”. That’s assuming Hopper is that. He may be more Kobe’s height
Hyper said on 28/Nov/20

I doubt it. With Larry Bird, Chuck holds up too well, in both pictures. In comparison, Chuck is easily taller than Michael Jordan and looks almost the same as Magic Johnson.

Honestly, Chuck could be dead even with a peak Ralf Moeller. Someone taller than Draymond Green and Vince Carter, truthfully.
Canson said on 27/Nov/20
@Editor Rob: if he’s getting guessed that low he may be closer to 6’5
Hyper said on 27/Nov/20

Michael Jordan would have to be 6’3” and Kobe Bryant 6’3”! Not to mention Magic Johnson would have to be 6’6”!
Editor Rob
yeah it seems a low guess from the stuntman
Hyper said on 26/Nov/20
Happy Thanksgiving, Rob!

Click Here

Also, found another picture of Chuck and Larry Bird. What do you think? The difference looks more accurate but he still holds up well with Bird.
Editor Rob
he can look over 6ft 5 with Bird and Robert Urich.

Interestinly I saw a stuntman once say "Chuck was six-foot-four, and I'm only six-foot even".

That's hard to imagine!

Sure, chuck has the camera advantage. However, 195 cm is clearly a myth. Heck, we could argue that 196 cm is low. This listing is easily legit. If he was 6’5 3/4”, I wouldn’t be surprised either. He gives a taller impression than Kevin Durand.
Hyper said on 20/Nov/20
Rob, out of all the people listed 6’5.5”, would you say Chuck Connors and Ralf Moeller are the tallest looking 6’5.5” people, on this site?
Editor Rob
yeah they could look no less than that mark.
Hyper said on 20/Nov/20

Chuck Connors and Ralf Moeller could be dead equal in height.

Chuck held up extremely well with peak Larry Bird and looked visibly taller than Michael Jordan, with Bird.

195 is an absolute joke. 197 cm at minimum.
recapa said on 15/Nov/20
was 197cm at least peak.
Tall In The Saddle said on 13/Nov/20
In my current opinion (based on what I've seen and there is always more out there), Chuck Connors was a solid 6'5.5" at the least and arguably closer to 6'6".

I'm not trying to play an all conquering card to reject any evidence otherwise but in instances where he might appear as low as 6'5" in some movies, it can be entertained that there was some Hollywood nip and tuck to keep him and his co stars adequately framed.

Alongside Sterling Hayden, Chuck was at least a good 1.5" taller. Hayden himself was a solid 6'4". Here's a great clip I found of Connors with Steve Allen. Allen was listed as 6'3" and the listing was reasonably upheld relative to other celebrities, including Muhammad Ali, then Cassius Clay in 1963. Allen had the edge on Ali and Ali commented on not realizing Allen was so tall, with Ali joking that he would've taken Allen as a sparring partner.

Here's Chuck being presented with a Winchester by Steve Allen. At times, when Connors properly straightens, I even think a 3" difference could be argued for. They are both formally attired, equal dress shoes assumed.

What's funny is that Chuck Connors was not "that" much taller than Conan O'Brien but to me Chuck looks like a king-size and more intimitading version of Conan. He looks very sinister right here: Click Here

LUCAS was 6 Ft 5 3/4 inches tall. I measured him in the jail.
Canson said on 28/Nov/19
@Dream: Chuck has the weak 6’6 proportions I agree
Dream said on 27/Nov/19

Do you think this guy could be similar to Ralf Moeller, or is 6'5 5/8" for Big Chuck, here?
Editor Rob
He has looked as tall as 6ft 6 but also at times less - it wouldn't be a surprise if he measured 6ft 5 and 5/8ths.
Dream said on 27/Nov/19
@Canson @Rampage

Howard Stern, even with his boots, barely stacks up well with a 6'8" or possibly 6'7.5" guy. Chuck Connors, was able to easily hold up extremely well with a peak Larry Bird, who was 6'9", even with the camera advantage. I'd expect the difference on eye level to be much more, but I'm really surprised Chuck managed to hold up that well. While larry still looks taller, he doesn't look that much taller than Chuck.

The average is a laughing gas, honestly. He looks easily taller than peak Michael Jordan, with Larry Bird. Rob, really hits this listing on the nail.

I can see why Chuck is easily guessed between 6'5" and 6'6". I would say 6'5 5/8" is arguable as well.
Canson said on 25/Nov/19
@Dream and Rampage: if he does edge Stern it’s not likely to be anything that any of us could see with a naked eye. They’d have to physically get measured. But at that stage he may edge Stern. I doubt Stern was a full 6’5.5 afternoon. Stern could’ve been more 6’5.25 or 3/8. Connors May be 6’5.5” peak. That’s where I draw the line between strong 6’5 and weak 6’6 if someone falls no lower than 6’5.5 at a normal low. Lots of guys here like Stern and Bo Burnham May be on the cusp but I would still say more strong 6’5 guys than weak 6’6”. Same with Klitschko. Ralf Moeller maybe he was weak 6’6” peak and same with someone like Kawhi leonard or Fess Parker. And then the next level is someone like Bill DeBlasio, He’s really between weak 6’6” and solid 6’6”. If the 6’5 7/8 was accurate and he doesn’t fall below that he’s pretty much solid

@Dream: probably not. I think Rob’s listing is good for Connors
Dream said on 18/Nov/19

Yeah, he’s closer to the camera. I’m not sure about Chuck’s footwear, but I have a difficult time seeing him at 6’5” flat, let alone the average guess, after seeing him with Larry Bird.
Canson said on 17/Nov/19
@Dream: yea he’s closer to the camera
Dream said on 17/Nov/19
Rob, this is strange.

Here's Chuck Connors with 6'9" Larry Bird. -- Click Here

Why does he look close to Larry Bird? I'm still surprised because Chuck honestly looks taller than Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley, with Larry Bird.

Maybe 6'5.75" would be better for Chuck? Now, I can see why you said he could seem a bit taller than Bo Burnham.
Editor Rob
He is nearer the camera, but look at Robert Urich who is 6ft 2.

berta said on 3/Jul/19
the average guess semms way to low. He was in a fight scene with james arness who was around 199-200 cm and he looked almost the same height.
greg lehmann said on 21/Oct/18
NBA players average 6'6" hright wise,about the size of my 6'7" Coast Guard veteran Dennis Crowley. While Connors scored great as The Rifleman,he first tried acting in Pat And Mike in 1952. (Be careful though not to fall asleep or you'll be unable to catch several great 1950's golf stars. Early Pre Rawhide venture too for Paul Brinegar,the cook Wishbone on that boyhood favorite.) Then I was surprised Chuck around Christmastime 1959 on What's My Line? nailed mystery guest Branch Rickey. He appeared on that WML to announce the Continental League,a third major baseball league. Fell through,but it DID give us the New York Mets and teams in Denver,Phoenix,Atlanta,Toronto,Dallas,Montreal,Tampa,Miami,Oakland,Minneapolis St. Paul,and Houston. Just wish MLB would add a team in Buffalo!
Mark Harrison said on 7/Oct/18
Chuck Connors was 6'5".

@Forbin, Chuck wore lifts in that episode to appear taller than Jim. Chuck has confirmed that Jim was an inch taller than him.
Forbin said on 24/Jul/18
There is an episode of Gunsmoke that Connors appears in. In the scene where he first meets Matt Dillon he seems to be taller by a few inches which can't be right since James Arness was 6'7 at the time.
Tony G said on 3/Jul/18
Johnny Crawford was at an autograph event in Chatsworth in April of this year (2018). I was able to talk to him and take a few photos. Of course, I asked about Chuck's height. (BTW, one of Chuck's sons was also there... Steven Connors.) I said to Johnny, "Was Chuck six-feet, five and one-half inches tall?" Johnny said, "More." I then replied, "Oh, so between 6'5 and 1/2" and 6'6"? and he said "Yes."

I did ask him the same question more than 10 years ago, at an autograph show, and I must have misunderstood him. I thought he said 6'5 and 5/16th inches, but that does sound too low. I am glad I had another chance to talk to him and maybe will again. He is now 72 years old.
John barrett said on 23/Apr/18
Watching a film to night with Connors and Charlton Heston I did wonder how tall k Connors was as I knew Heston was a good 6'2 and Connors made him look short by at least 3 inches maybe a little more - so yeah dead on with Connors height i say?
Ian C. said on 5/Jan/18
Chuck Connors a bad actor, James? As a childhood fan of The Rifleman, I disagree. When Connors delivered his lines they sounded like human speech.

He's better than Clint Eastwood, surely, who has two expressions: bland indifference to whatever is going on (when he plays The Man with No Name) and an unchanging ill-tempered scowl (when he plays Dirty Harry Callahan). Arnold Schwarzenegger has never delivered a line naturally in his life, unless he was playing a cyborg. Keanu Reeves? If there were a hundred of him he'd be a forest.

Everybody in Gone With the Wind except Clark Gable is terrible. In fact, watch Turner Classic Movies for a day, and you quickly notice that most of the acting in movies before 1940 is atrocious by modern standards.

The most underrated actor of all time? Robert Mitchum, who never read a line wrong in his life.
James said on 15/Nov/17
Connors was 6'5". He was the worst actor I ever saw, which is probably why he was typecast in westerns and low budget action films.

Big Chuck could look close to the full 6'6' with both Peck and Heston, the current 6'4.25 gues is laughing gas. 6'5.75 I'm giving him.

His average guess makes no sense everybody seems to agree at least 6ft5 but the average guess is 6ft4.25?

a couple of lowballs from somebody who thinks every actor is 2 inches shorter than their listing! It's BS of course, none of their votes have counted for a while now...
Canson said on 10/Sep/16
Agree with James maybe some change on the end or a 77" at his lowest but would close the day closer to 6'5 than 6'6". Never looked even as tall as someone like Rick Fox
James said on 2/Sep/16
Chuck Connors was 6'5".
Robby D. said on 19/Apr/16
He was listed as 6' 5 1/2" in a 1964 magazine which seems accurate to me.
Arch Stanton said on 7/Jan/16
Was the 6'5 and 5/16 claim form somebody legit or just tongue in cheek?
Arch Stanton said on 7/Jan/16
He had about 3 inches on Peck I thought. 6'5.5 is still possible but the lowest I'd have thought..
Arch Stanton said on 7/Jan/16
Rob can you add a photograph and films such as The Big Country, Soylent Green, Move Over Darling, Old Yeller, Pancho Villa, Virus and Airplane II. Looked nearer the full 6'6 IMO. Would you consider a 6'5.75? He really looked it in the 50s. Perhaps he got measured at 6'5 at 18 or something and grew a bit and then they rounded up to 6'6. I got a good look at him with Heston in Soylent and he really looked near 6'6. I'd give him 6'5.75.

He's taller than John Wayne's hat there with poor posture! Click Here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Aug/15
He still looked at least 6ft5 range w/h Elliott.

One of the greatest "athletes turned actor." (Cathy Rigby and Merlin Olsen would match 6'7" Chuck as an athlete turned actor.) Loved him on The Rifleman and have his first season of Branded on DVD. One of the finest TV western actors of all time.
Shadow2 said on 3/Dec/14
In an early "Gunsmoke" episode Chuck did with Jim Arness, the director made Chuck appear obviously taller (than Jim) in his guest role as the town bully. Chuck referred to this in an on-line interview shortly before he died, and confirmed that Jim was definitely taller than him in reality.
Sam said on 2/Dec/14
I think he was about an inch below James Arness when near him.
Ian C said on 1/Dec/14
Now Lurch, there is just so much utility to be had from height, and then it becomes a liability. Connors was a healthy, handsome near-giant with no deformities and professional caliber skill at baseball and basketball. Cassidy and Kiel were both sufferers from pituitary giantism. Connors was a credible heroic leading man, and Cassidy and Kiel played monsters.

As much as I liked Chuck Conners hexl wasnt the tallest in Hollywood. Ted cassidybwas 6'9, Richard Kiel 7'2

You must never have smoked Sandy. I used to smoke and the truth (now unprintable in most newspapers) is, when you're young smoking does negligible damage to your wind. You just cough out most of the tar. I'll bet that many Olympic runners smoked in the fifties. I'll bet that most professional baseball and football players of the sixties smoked. Of course, Connors eventually died of lung disease, but he probably had superb lung strength and stamina when he was forty, as he was clearly a man of considerable physical gifts.

To me, Connors still pulls off looking 6'5" with Cesar Romero in those shots. Sam Elliott looks more 6'1.5" there with Connors and Tom Selleck, Connors height was pretty impressive considering that he's much older than the other two in the photo Rob posted.
Arch Stanton said on 27/Nov/13
Rob can you answer my question? Well, lifts or not he certainly looked about 6 '6" next to Peck 2.5-3 inches taller.
Arch Stanton said on 27/Nov/13
Rob do you think at peak he could have been 199cm out of bed? He looks virtually 6'6" in The Big Country and Designing Woman next to Peck.
daddy cool said on 27/Nov/13
If Connors really was 6ft 6" then Mr. Conrad must be 6ft 7". He was at least an inch taller than Connors in that "Cowboy in Africa" episode.

Conrad allways looked massive in every scene, like in Waltons. He may have been 6ft 7in. Ralph Waite, in the middle, is a six footer.

Connors looked about 3 inches taller than Gregory Peck. I could buy 6 ft 6. Really tough imposing looking guy, I wouldn't mess with him!!
ian c. said on 24/Nov/13
Connors was one of the most athletic people who could also act. He always slouched, even when he walked, such that he seemed to have a pronounced bow in his spine. Maybe this was just the way he was naturally made, but it could have been a longstanding habit of holding himself in an effort to make himself seem shorter. Because six foot five is getting too tall to be a leading man.

I mean Burl Ives, Burl Ives was the big robust Papa in that film. Connors looks about 4 inches taller, Ives was supposedly 6'1" but could look 6'2" I think. Built like a brick house though at least 300 pounds.
Arch Stanton said on 30/Sep/13
Chuck Hayward was a big fella, easily 6'3" peak I'd say (John Wayne's double in a lot of his films). But in The Big Country Chuck Connors has a good 3 inches on him, even if Hayward looks more robust. I'd say he had to have been near 6'6". I get a similar impression to him as Trace Adkins. 197-98 looks about right.
Arch Stanton said on 30/Sep/13
Does look massive in The Big Country in cowboy hat and boots next to Jean Simmons who wasn't a short woman and 5'5.5-5'6".

Connors was a good four inches taller than six foot three Chuck Connors in Designing Women. So either Peck wasn't six three or Connors was a strong six seven.

Paul Picerni, the great character actor, said Connors was the "tallest Actor in Hollywood". Chuck played both pro baseball and pro basketball. He was a great athlete and was the first player in basketball to break a backboard. He also was a tank instructor during World War 2.

Paul Fix was his co-star in The Rifleman, and is listed as 6'0. Connors is about a "foot" taller, so there's no way Fix was 6'0, unless Connors was 7'0. Just a little aside. As for The Rifleman, I SURE wish the whole series would come out on DVD.
Shadow2 said on 12/Jan/11
In normal shoes Chuck was easily 6'6", so the 6'5.5" barefoot seems right. Like James Stewart and Alan Napier, Chuck never lost height as he aged. A fine actor, athlete, and gentleman.
LT said on 23/Mar/09
ive read in guns & ammo that not alot of people were actually able to spin the rifle he used, which is one of the reasons he was picked for the part, the writer mentions that he is 5'10" and was a friend of chucks but when ever he tried it would hit him in the shoulder, but it wasent a problem for the 6'5" conners, id believe 6'6" s he was said to be a very modest man., possobly measured late in the day he would have been 6'5", also concidering he kept a thin figure, this shouldent have decresed much with age.

There was an episode of "The Rifleman" where another actor was not only taller than Connors, but towered over him. The episode is called "The Decision." The actor? A very young Richard Kiel.

Tom Selleck is about 6'3". I'd say that Chuck could have easily been 6'6" when he was young such as when he starred in The Rifleman TV series and had a role in The Big Country.
Mikex said on 25/Mar/06
He loooks much bigger than Selleck in that pic. Are you sure he's not even taller than 6'5''?

camera perspective is enhancing the difference in height

I'd say Chuck could have easily been 6'6". I watched The Big Country once again and in the scene where he's back-to-back with 6'3" Greg Peck he looks like he's about three inches taller. When I saw Chuck walking by me back in the early-1990's he was huge!

Chuck Connors was probably 6'5.5" or around there, so sometimes he was listed as 6'5" as sometimes as 6'6". I watched THE RIFLMAN every week and only once do I ever recall a guest star being taller than "Lucas" and that was 6'7" Don Magowen (who usually played monsters) and Megowen was only 1-1.5 iches taller.
In a later series, BRANDED he seemed to tower over 6'2" guest stars like Leo Gordon and Lee Van Cleave (sp?). 6'5" for Chuck Connors AT LEAST! P.S.: I've seen that photograph with Tom Selleck, and Connors LOOKS at least 3-3.5 inches taller, but if Selleck were standing farther back???

Wow, the Boston Celtics ! That is pretty cool, being a Celtics fan growing up. I should know my Celtics history. Also, looks like Heston is his officially listed height of 6-3 next to Connors. Great photo Rob!

I saw him in person and I'd say he could have easily been 6'6".
Tiger said on 16/Mar/06
I have no doubt that 6-6 is out there for Connors. He is a massive guy and could very well have been close to 6-6. Rob: do you happen know Connors' basketball experience? I don't know if he played pro or not.

From Chuck Connors 6-5, 190 lbs. Major League Debut: May 1, 1949 w/Brooklyn Dodgers and Last Game: September 30, 1951 w/ Chicago Cubs

the different heights might come from him playing some basketball aswell...but I will go with the baseball listing for the moment. Chuck with other Chuck

Rob: isn't Tom Selleck usually listed at 6-4 ? He looks alot more than a couple inches shorter than Connors in that photo you link above. That is a pretty big gap. My initial search on the web has brought only a 6-5 listing for Connors. From the written word, again 6-5!

Editor Rob
there have been 6ft 6 listings for the guy, but selleck was further back in that pic and looks shorter
