The same height as Michel Bouquet, I would think...

When comparing my height to celebrities I usually add 1 cm per decade, because average height is increasing.

I was born 2000, so he would be average in my generation at 180cm.

Rob do you agree with my thinking?

Don must have been taller in his younger days. The above shows don’t ring familiar but Don’s face does!

Good to see TV legend Knotts finally get a page. I would say not greatly higher than 5’7” is likely. Click Here

Rob, at 36:18 what peak height would you put Julie Sommars at, compared to Don and Dean? 5’6”?

It looks like she has on 2 inch heels at 36:18.

As far as Don’s listing is concerned, right on Rob! It is great to finally see a page for him, he often looked 5’7.5” around Dean Jones and was 1.5 inches taller than Tim Conway in The Private Eyes. 5’7.25” more probable than 5’7.75” I’d say, but I had guessed 5’7.5” too previously.

Lorne mentioned Don and I realised he was never given a page, there were a few clips on youtube (couldn't find whole thing) about the episode "barney's physical" and not quite hitting 5ft 8.
