I feel anything from 6’1” to 6’1.5” is possible for Tomlinson’s peak height.

I would say 6’0.5/184cm David Tomlinson and 6’/183cm Dick Van Dyke

Sinclair, he could look that range. Wouldn’t dismiss it

Rob, do you think David Tomlinson could have been 6’1.25” or even 6’1.5” in his prime?
Editor Rob
I think he was a good 6ft 1, there may have been a greater chance of over than under that 6ft 1 mark.

I’m tempted to see my second favourite actor be awarded the full 6’1.5”, but to play it safe, instead I’ll politely suggest upgrading Tomlinson to 6’1.25”. Tomlinson was a fair bit taller than the younger Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins. Moreover, Tomlinson still came off as a solid 6’1” at the end of his career in The Fiendish Plot of Dr Fu Manchu when he was 62 years old, he was at least an inch taller than Sid Caesar. Tomlinson also looked over an inch taller than Dean Jones in The Love Bug. Tomlinson may have been the tallest 6’1” person I’ve ever seen.

Could look a strong 6ft1 compared to Van Dyke

Rob, did this guy edge out Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins?


I thought they looked similar, maybe he had the edge
Editor Rob
I'd have said Tomlinson probably was taller.

You just have to watch Up the Creek to see he was mininum this. 6 inches in shoes on Peter Sellers barefoot. He could look 6'1.5 in that film.

WOW shocked he's this tall I thought he was like 5'11

Tomlinson looks 1´85. Taller than Dean Jones in Herbie and way taller tan Angela Lansbury. A legit 1`85 man

A familar face for sure, from this picture looks like that actor Toby Jones but obviously rather taller.

A bit overestimate IMO! I can't see him over 6'0.5"...
Arch Stanton said on 8/Mar/15
I asked for him last Christmas I think, seems about right.
[Editor Rob: I think from seeing those films listed that he could pull it off.]
