6ft1 is fair...

I caught sight of Doug next to Peter Cushing in 'At the Earth's Core' yesterday evening a few minutes before 'The Twilight Zone' started on the 'Horror' channel's weekend fun and frivolities!
Having already done a write-up on Peter, I was aware that he was 5ft11.5; he was also on yesterday with his friend 6ft4.5-5 Christopher Lee and he did look just under 6ft, when comparing the two masters of horror.
However, the films were twelve years apart, so Peter might have shrunk a bit by the time the 1976 film was made with Doug McClure, who looked about 6ft3 next to him!
I knew that couldn't be true as I have looked at Doug's page before, so I resorted to studying some of the comments. I'm going along with 6ft1, though he did look taller in 1976!

He never looked 6'1".

Doug was almost a reference for the height of 6'1" actors in TV westerns, i.e. his role in the long running "The Virginian". He also proved Stewart Granger was never 6'3", except in "lifts" in earlier movies.

Sat next to him at dinner in the early 1990's real nice guy. Was shorter than me at 6'2", I would say a hair under 6'. He did tell me he had lots of back problems from his days as a stunt man, so maybe he slumped or had lost some height.

Yeah. He is about 5'10" maybe 5'10 1/2". Check out Shennendoa next to jimmy Stewart.
