Marv was 6'2" on mugshots from Home Alone 1990. Not 6'4".

i used to think he was closer to 191-192 but i agree on the 193 listing.

Doesn’t have the typical proportions of a 6ft4 dude. Watching Home Alone it’s evident he’s tall but not in that looming sort of way. But in City Slickers he did look every bit of this.

Today could be dipping below it now

I’d say 6’4.5 out of bed and 6’3.75 at his afternoon/evening in his prime
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Sep/22
Looked a decent enough 6ft4 in the 90’s
Matt6'4.5 said on 18/Sep/22
Rob, here in the US, he has been listed at 6’5 for at least the last 10 years or so. I definitely see him as more of a 6’4. What do you think would account for the discrepancy? Could it be to make Joe Pesci seem a tad taller?
Editor Rob
I don't think he looked that tall even in 90's.

In Bushwhacked when the kids were going through his wallet it said 6’2” I guess he was still growing after that movie lol no just kidding. Movies don’t normally count. No he really is 6’4” he’s way taller than 6’ tall prime Peter Weller when they were together in that monster movie.
Toby Barrett said on 2/Dec/21
if i were to guess current and peak i would say 6'4 peak 6'2.5 current
JordanC17 said on 7/Oct/21
Legit 6'4".
Canson said on 22/Dec/20
He doesn’t strike me as a legit 6’4 even in Home Alone. But I wouldn’t go under 192cm range
Height_Guesser said on 10/Dec/20
He is 6’ 4 1/4” he looks possibly 12.5”-13 inches taller than Joe Pesci.
Ian C. said on 5/Dec/20
About an inch and a half taller than the elderly Jack Palance in a cast photo from City Slickers. So, six foot four is pretty close.
tony t. said on 2/Dec/20
Really never thought he was this tall. I know there's different camera tricks and scenes in movies are made to look certain ways but in the part where Joe pesci's hitting him with the crowbar in Home Alone 1 it doesn't look like there's a full 13 inches between the two of them. In fact at times Stern looks only around 6'0 in that movie, so I'm gonna just assume that he slouches pretty bad. Also there were certain ways the filmmakers wanted it to look at times I suppose.
Canson said on 30/Oct/20
I think 192 over 191
OriginalAnon said on 27/Oct/20
191cm prime.
Realist said on 21/May/20
He was 6'4 in Home ALone that guy even looked more like 6'5 was very tall indeed.
James B 172cm said on 6/Feb/20
weak 6'4
billionaireslayer said on 23/Mar/19
6'2 n half maybe scrapping 6'3 I think he would be close to someone like Bob Saget or Chevy Chase all in their Prime around that range with him edging out Saget and Chevy Possibly edging out Daniel.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Jan/19
Could be little under this today
Michael, 5'10" 178 cm said on 3/Dec/18
He was definitely 6’4”, he towered over Joe Pesci in the Home Alone films by at least a foot. I know Joe Pesci was actually 5’3” and not 5’4” like Google has down for him, but Marv looked over a foot taller than Harry. There is absolutely no way that he was 6’2” peak, that’s ridiculous, maybe now he could be near that mark since he shrunk a little bit today. Also, if he was really one inch taller than Brendan Fraser who was 6’3”, then he was 6’4” hands down. He maybe looked a bit shorter than 6’4” in the second Christmas Story movie, but that’s because he’s a lot older now and is probably more around the 6’3 or weak 6’4” range now. Daniel was definitely 6’4”.

@ sulu2019 - I am talking about adults, 5'4" is nearer to average than 6'4"! A lot of adult men are 5'4" or under.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 29/Oct/18

I'm sure Nik's only talking about adults. I see more 5'4" adult men than I do 6'4", and I live in the US. Might be the opposite in some European countries though.
sulu2019 said on 29/Oct/18
@ Nik

Are you only talking about adults, not kids?
berta said on 2/Sep/18
he is somehwere beetween 191-193 i think 192 is best listing. 193 in the morning
Nik said on 17/Apr/18
@ sulu2018

You may be right but in general society there are a lot more men who are 5'4" or less!
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 14/Apr/18

You might be right, although there are no statistics to prove it. Because the average male celeb here is about 5'10.5" IMO.
sulu2018 said on 13/Apr/18
6'4" is a towering height, but I think more male celebrities on this site had 6'4" as their peak height than 5'4" or less.
Canson said on 19/Oct/17
Weaker 6’4”
Faza said on 10/Aug/17
6 4 peak for sure he looked a few inches taller than akroyd and wayans in celtic pride who are both over 6ft his posture can be bit bad but i cant see him being much under 6 4 if he is
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/May/17
Definitely around 6ft4. There was an easy foot between him and Pesci in the Home Alone movies. He's got dreadful posture though and might appear like a 6ft3 guy at times...
MJKoP said on 22/May/17
Either he's shrank an immense amount, or Pesci has taken to serious lifts. In a very recent "Wet Bandits" reunion photo they looked WAAAAYYY closer in stature than ever in the past. Perhaps Pesci was standing on something, because it wasn't a full bodied shot. I'll try to hunt down the picture and post it.
berta said on 5/May/17
i think he could be a fraction under this ore even a full half inch. But clears 193 in the morning
josh jeffords said on 3/Jan/17
Very tall man in earlier 90s and late 80s seemed about 6 4..and bad posture almost always.
He is not this anymore he seemed much shorter by late 90s now he is quite heavy and looks over 6 ft little more.
Funny guy never cared for him in serious roles hes a bit too goofy for that.
He did slouch in many films making him look more..normal.. those crazy long arms always gave him away.
My guess will be peak needs a current field he has to be at least an inch shorter now "6'3"
Phil said on 26/Dec/16
6 foot 3 is possible.
S.J.H said on 1/Nov/16
Heard rumors that he was not over 6'3 in real. I bet so. He look 6'3ish in the 90s movie
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Apr/15
He did look 194cm in the Home Alone movies.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Jan/14
Is a fraction over 6ft4 peak possible, Rob?
IR said on 15/Dec/13
i'm surprised he's not related to Howard Stern! they're both tall. They tower over Joe Pesci by at least a foot.
cd said on 7/Jul/13
Yes there was definitely over a foot between him and Pesci in Home Alone (Pesci is around 5'3" or maybe 5'2.5"). I wouldn't be surprised if he was 6'4.5" or even 6'5" either.
ReturnofG said on 1/Feb/13
I think he is closer to 6'5.
maio said on 8/Jan/12
I think 6 ft 3.25 in/191 cm is the right mark for him. i'd say he never looked a weak 6 ft 4 in and also 6 ft 3.5 in it's too much for him...I'd say:

Daniel Stern: 6 ft 3.25 in/191 cm
Michael Caine: 6 ft 1.75 in/187 cm (PEAK), 6 ft 0.75 in/185 cm (TODAY)
Max Von Sydow: 6 ft 3.25 in/191 cm (PEAK), 6 ft 2 in/188 cm (TODAY)
Mac said on 4/Sep/11
In "Hannah and her Sisters" Daniel looks much taller than Max Von Sydow 6'4" and Michael Caine 6'2". Maybe it was the hair, but in that film he looked 6'5" esp next to Von Sydow.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jan/11
Maybe 6"3.5(192cm)?
James said on 21/Dec/10
I was thinking exactley the same thing as you anonymous when i saw that film earlier tonight. he does not look 6'4 even with his perm.

I was thinking 6'3 or 6'2 as well when seeing him in that film. I think 6'3.5 is closer for his real height.

this pic is dodgy but i must admit he looks massive near richard gere

Doesn't really look 6'4" next to Joe Pesci in Home Alone. Maybe 6'2" ? What do you think Rob

Editor Rob
I do think this fellow was near 6ft 4, but I haven't seen that movie for ages.
T.J. said on 9/Dec/10
Definatly did not look 6'4" next to Joe Pesci. More like 6'2"
and RampageClover 190.8cm, you always seem to give a taller height then the celebrities themselves claim.
Mr. Kaplan said on 18/Nov/10
Just watched "Breaking Away" and thought he was around 6'2.5"-6'3", certainly not as high as 6'4"!
Hugh 190cm said on 17/Jun/09
This guy is really tall so 6ft4 is right.
Anonymous said on 22/Nov/08
He is definitely 6'4 at least.
Big King said on 5/Sep/08
Well, Fraser said that he could reach 6'3 1/2" full stretched and if Stern looked an inch taller, maybe Stern could be something between 6'4" and 6'5".
Mendo said on 16/Mar/08
Yes, 6'4" is his height! I rembered watching Home Alone and there he looked at least a foot taller than Harry.
Anonymous said on 18/Feb/07
On "The Last Time" film with Michael Keaton and Brendan Fraser, he was definitely 1 inch taller than 6'3 Fraser.
Cm8000 said on 28/Oct/06
I think hes 6'4 myself
Derek said on 21/Oct/06
Looks closer to 6'3". He wasn't that much taller than Dan Aykroyd or Damon Wayans.
6'2'' JK said on 20/Oct/06
Looks about 6'3'' to me, but could be 6'4''
Ball-A-Hallic said on 19/Oct/06
in celtic pride he looks about 2 to three inches bigger than the 6'0 dan akroyd and idk how tall damon wayans is but he has about 2 on him
TNTinCA said on 19/Oct/06
Does seem a tad tall. But possible. Unfortunately, the only two actors I can think of standing next to him were Joe Pesci and Roe Scheider, neither of whom are that tall.
Viper652 said on 19/Oct/06
I always thought he was 6-2.
