Yes, a reasonable shout though from what I've seen 5'11.5 fits best peak. 5'11.25 is decent too though.

He was taller than Richard Harris.

Also, could you add to his credits The Bible: In the Beginning..., Companeros, Keoma, Letters to Juliet and Django Unchained?

Didn't realize he had a page...pretty good call, tall for an Italian guy for his day and age I'm fairly certain. No match, not even close, for Eastwood's screen-presence but good in Django nonetheless. I'd say Nero has maintained height better than Eastwood, Nero looks 5'10" range recently.

Rob, you have left off Franco's most famous role - that of the coffin-pulling, fastest-ever-gun-in-the-West DJANGO! Franco was the original & best of the Djangos (there were dozens of 'em)!

I don't think he's less than five eleven, maybe half inch or so. I met him in 2010 with his partner Vanessa Redgrave. If his peak height was 5'11 then he has pretty much retained it.

Rob, i dont know about his peak but i've seen recently photos of him and he struggles to look 5'10!

The film in the begining richard harris looked a few inches taller than nero. And harris could have been as tall as 6ft 3 which he has claimed. 5ft 11 seems about right for franco nero as he looked it in die hard 2 aswell.

I saw him in italian tv near sandro porcaeva (6'1") and antonio sticazzi (6'2") and he was shorter.I think 1,80 is exact.

I belive what you're saying, i spected him to be taller but 5'11" is quite respectable for his generation.

Franco Nero is 179-180 cm. I've seen him a lot of time in Rome and he is a almost 1 inch taller than me. I am 5'10". In an Italian program "La vita in diretta" last week he said : I am about 180cm or a little bit less. I am sure he is in the 179-180cm range. P.S. I am from Italy.

I agree with Ayreon. Franco Nero was at least 6ft tall, maybe still is. He was slightly taller than Vanessa, herself standing at 6ft or 5' 11". And please, Rob, set Vanessa back to her original pre-shrunk height: 5' 9" is ridiculous.
[Editor Rob: since she's actively working still, her current height is listed since she's shrunk...if she dies before me or stops working in tv, I'll put her back up of course]

Yeah, since Nero comes from a rich country (more advanced on 7G than UK), he could have been raised as wealthily his anglosaxon counterparts and reach the 6'2" IMDB claims form him.
Also Bud Spencer (ex pro-swimmer) was 194cm and Ternce Hill about 182 cm (but weared boots to compensate the height diff). All of these actors are Italian and had a height hard to find in other mediterranean countries on 70'2 decade (say Spain, Portugal). Nowadays this wellfare diff is extinct but made it possible for an italian to be taller on three decades ago.

Are you sure this is all Franco Nero is? In "Camelot" he looked about the same height as Richard Harris. If Nero is only 5'10" Harris can't be the 6'1" you have listed him as.

I agree with this listing.I met Franco a few years ago in a hotel in Budapest and he looked to me about this height.
