[For Obsession] He wore inch-high lifts inside his shoes, insisted on standing on an apple box in every two-shot, and lagged back a step or two whenever he walked down a flight of steps with another actor.

One of the greatest actors of all time, and completely underrated in Spider-Man 1 and 2. Greatest uncle Ben EVER..

Looked a strong 5'10 with Rex Harrison.

He must have been wearing lifts. I doubt he was any taller than 5'10".

I met Cliff Robertson in the early 1990's.in Connecticut. I was standing 3ft from him.Later shook his hand. Talked. He was wearing very casual loafers. Low heal. Im five eleven and One eighth. Sorry but he was at least my height.

I'd say 5'9"-5'9.5 at peak and 5'8"-5'8.5 in his remaining years before his death. He was probably 5'8 range next to Tobey Maguire in spiderman and he was in his 70s at that time.

Barely. He was two inches shorter than Bill Holden in Picnic. Holden was reportedly five eleven.
When Robertson appeared again with Holden in The Devil's Brigade, he was the same height. But in that film he wore obvious lifts.
Robertson also wore lifts in Gore Vidal's The Best Man.
