Arch, I don't think Roger had lost anything yet. He looked textbook strong 6ft1 just a couple of years earlier opposite Christopher Lee in Man With Golden Gun. By View To A Kill, it was clear he was struggling with 6ft1 though. Curd likely was at an age where a bit of loss had occurred. Possibly was always a flat 6ft3 guy? That'd be worst case though....but no way was he above this listing. 192cm could have been earlier in the day. Smoked, heavy drinker, weight gain and awful posture. Looked like a guy with back issues

Yeah, the question is if Moore was nearer 6 ft 1 flat by the late 1970s, I think it's possible and Curd was about 6 ft 3 in that film then.

Rewatched my DVD of The Spy Who Loved Me the other night and I stand corrected. Curd actually looked about 2 inches taller than Roger, some of the angles weren't the best for comparison but I got a good look at him and think he would be about 2 inches taller if stood his best and measured. He was 61 or 62 in that film. He looked taller than the 189 I and some others thought in the past.

He's losing a bit of height in that photo Arch. I have a feeling he could have lost a little by Spy Who Loved Me and been more 6ft3 flat though

Delon was nothing over 5 ft 10, must have been wearing big lifts! It's good to see that people still watch obscure films from pre 1980 on here. In Vault of Horror which was only four years before Spy he did look about 6 ft 3. Big, solid built man, built a bit like a German car! Odd though, in this photo here was 1978 with his wife I think, he's barefoot by the pool and looks more like a 6'-6'1 ft man! Click Here

Maybe more 6ft3 flat in Spy Who Loved Me

I have seen Jürgens in And God Created Women, The Longest Day, Battle of Britain and The Spy Who Loved Me. Although these films came in the later part of his career, in none of them did Jürgens ever strike me as someone much over 6’3”. In The Spy Who Loved Me, I would have estimated he was only 6’2.75” or 6’2.5” but I think he had started to shrink by then. My peak estimate for Jürgens remains 6’3.25”, I would only vote 6’3.5” for his peak height if I was feeling really generous.

Looked 6'4" peak and probably was 6'4" peak, regardless of comparisons to Roger Moore's height when Jurgens was older. Hats off to this guy, who ended up being interned by his own country during the second world war because he was considered "political unreliable" since he opposed national socialism and Hitler.

He was a legit one inch taller than Roger Moore 185-186 cms during The Bond movie. He was a legit 188-189 cms and a 190-191 cms range seems likely.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Sep/17
I think he was at least 6ft3.
Jug said on 29/Jul/17
Maybe Jurgens was 6'1.5 in The Spy Who Loved Me? I don't know, I think he looked the same height as "Mr. Boond." He was 62 in 1977. He may have been an inch or so taller in his younger days. Everyone says he was quite tall. I would give him 6'2 or 6'2.5 for a peak height. 6'4 is a bit of a stretch.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Apr/17
Arch, I reckon he had lost a bit by the 70's...didn't look this next to James Coburn in Golden Girl either. I suspect he may have been a smoker
Arch Stanton said on 9/Apr/17
Mmm. This guy bugs me because although he could look a clear big 6'3 ranger in his early films in the 1970s he could look almost two inches shorter than this. In the Mephisto Waltz if anything Alan Alda looked to edge out Jurgens, though his posture wasn't great. Jurgens would have been 56 at the time, unlikely to have lost that much height. The more I see of him the more I doubt he was ever a legit 192 guy and am wondering if he was actually more like 6'2.5 peak and wore bigger shoes at times to pull off a big strong 6'3 look.
Arch Stanton said on 16/Mar/17
He lost height quite early I think, in The Battle of Neretva he looks more 6'2 with Hardy Kruger who I have at around a 180 5'11.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Mar/17
192/193cm peak

Rob, have a look at this..Bond being re-acquainted with two former foes!

I would say 6'3, although no more than 6'1.5 by comparison with Roger Moore in 1977. I'm watching the film and they look more or less the same height.
Arch Stanton said on 6/Jul/15
Looks massive here, Click Here Over a head taller than 5'6.5 Brigitte Bardot in shoes!
Arch Stanton said on 6/Jul/15
This might seem a bit of a wildshot but he does actually look a lot like Ginger Rogers facially LOL!!
Arch Stanton said on 6/Jul/15
Rob can you add the following: The Longest Day, Die Ratten, And God Created Woman, Bitter Victory, The Blue Angel, and The Assassination Bureau and correct to "heyday".
Arch Stanton said on 6/Jul/15
I think you could argue anything in 6'3-6'3.5 range, he did loose height later on though.
Arch Stanton said on 6/Jul/15
Jurgens had nearer 3 inches on Mitchum Shadow when stood his best I thought.
Arch Stanton said on 6/Jul/15
I wasn't aware we had a page for him! If you really watch his earlier films he wasn't far off 6'4", he could look like a lumbering John Wayne from a distance. I think this is accurate for peak anyway, he had about 5.5-6 inches on Richard Burton and about an inch-1.5 shorter than Christopher Lee.
Shadow2 said on 12/Jun/15
In one of the final scenes of "The Enemy Below" Jurgens stands on the deck alongside 6' 1" Robert Mitchum and appears two inches taller, making the 6' 3" listing seem right. With shorter actors Jurgens does give a 6' 4" impression at times, perhaps because of his strong build.
Anon said on 1/Mar/15
In Vault of Horror, he looked taller than the others. 6'4 in his prime, possibly.
eutre said on 22/Feb/14
Met him in late 1970s. He was 6'4 maybe taller. Very fine actor and very cultured man.
JimMorrison said on 19/Oct/13
He probably lost a lot of height as he aged. In the 50s (when he was in his 30s and 40s) he did look close to 6ft4. In AND GOD CREATED WOMAN he looks quite large. In VAULT OF HORROR looked to be about the same height as Tom Baker who was a legit six three.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Oct/13
Rob, could he have been 6ft3.5?

I seem to recall him having 2in on Moore.
Editor Rob
not improbable, although Moore I think could look 6ft 1 by 50
JimMorrison said on 16/Sep/13
Was a notorious alcoholic and probably shrunk at least two inches. In AND GOD CREATED WOMAN he looks clearly tall, but its difficult to say whether he looks six foot three or four. He has been described as tall as 6-4½ in old articles.

I dont think there is a shot in ENEMY BELOW where he is standing next to six foot one Robert Mitchum. That would be interesting to see. Had a very strong, charismatic presence.
