I thought Hedison looked approximately 6’1” in Licence To Kill and he seemed almost as tall as Roger Moore in Live and Let Die, so I would not argue with a flat 6’1” for Hedison’s peak height.

Hedison is now in his 90s so u suspect he may have lost 3 inches at least off his peak height. Must be around 5’9 I reckon

If he was 6ft1, then Moore was almost 6ft2

Hedison looked a little shorter than Moore, but maybe because of camera angles and posture, etc. He looked not more than an inch shorter than Dalton. He could have been 6'1 at peak.

Rob, how tall would he be today?
[Editor Rob: I seen him a few years back, he'd lost some height but wasn't near enough to really tell.]

I like this site, but I miss some actors in it: Richard Basehart & Del(bert) Monroe (Admiral Nelson & Kowalski - Voyage to the Botoom of the Sea) or Jonathan Harris (Dr. Smith - Lost in Space), for example.
If Hedison is 184cm, maybe Del was 182 and Basehart was 168cm. Just a guess...

First rule of movie making, the 6'1" star is always taller than his 6'1" co-star, even though they were the same height in a TV series ten years before (i.e. before "lifts"!).

No he has it right. He is shorter than Moore by very little. a half inch.In Live and Let Die there is a scene at the end where Hedison is walking behind Moore as he boards a train with Jane Seymour and there is a slight difference in height. Moore is 6'1. he was not 6'2.So Hedison is 6'0.5.

David still looked 6'1" in scenes with Timothy Dalton when Dalton played James Bond in the 1980's. David was exactly the same height as Roger Moore when he guest starred in "The Saint" in the early 1960's. Rob, I'd give him a 6'1" peak.

David was about 6'1" back when he starred in the TV series Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. Richard Basehart was only about 5'7". And I saw Roger Moore buying a sport coat in Beverly Hills a few years ago and he was no more than my height which is 5'11". He's shrunk a bit over the years.
