Rob, who do you think was taller Fairbanks or Gable?
Editor Rob: Rampage, at times I think Fairbanks Jr can give a slightly taller impression.

In the photo with Hudson and Peck he's satnding behind them with the camera photographing upward. He really doesn't look that short considering. I think a solid 6'1" in his youth. And dropping down by perhaps half an inch by the time of that photo. So Hudson at 6'4" was three and half inches talker while Peck was two and a half inches taller. And that's just about what I see in that photo.

Between Rock Hudson and Gregory Peck, he looks under six foot maybe but is older possibly with height loss and is not as close to the camera as the other two.

Here's Jr. with his dad, looking about 5-6 inches taller.

The same is true (not having a pic on his own page) of Errol Flynn.

Rob on the "you might be interested in" thing above there's a photo of Edward G. but not one in his article. Can you add one? The 5'4.5" also needs looking into!!
[Editor Rob: I've still to look at his height again, but I'll add that photo on his page.]

Good to see it up!! Yeah I think he looked a bit shorter than Massey and about the same height as Reagan. 6'0.5" I think is the best listing, although sometimes he could look nearer 6'1".

He looked tall, around 1`85, unlike his father. There are pics of him next to very tall people like Rock Hudson, Gregory Peck or Jeff Goldblum and Fairbanks doesn´t look very short next to them

This listing fits him pretty well. Good to have another father & son pair on here.
