I give him credit for admitting to the elevator shoes, you can see he has big heels in this 1990 appearance on Good Morning America: Click Here
Those are probably custom boots with an extra lift inside as well. Don't know how much height he's lost or if he still wears elevators, but Stallone towers over him in recent years: Click Here
I remember seeing him as the killer in an early 80s slasher film, which I think was called "Blood Song" and they did make him look pretty close to average. Not big by any stretch and I'm sure he had his elevators on in hindsight, but he's probably pretty honest and was about a weak 5'7" or this listing.

He always looked really short to me. What I don't understand is that he admitted that he was barely 5' 7" yet he gets listed at 5' 8".

I just saw him on a 1975 episode of Celebrity Bowling. He was one of four bowlers, the others being Kate Jackson, Edward Albert (age 24), and Rory Calhoun. They were all wearing bowling shoes. Kate, who is listed as 5'7½" on some websites, was taller than Frankie by at least 3 inches. He is 5'4½" max.

More like 5'4. Rosemarie Frankland was 5'6 and appears 2 inches taller standing next to Frankie Avalon in 'I'll Take Sweden'.

Here's 5'6.5 Frankie Avalon next to Alan Ladd. Frankie in my opinion is 5'3-5'4, never taller than 5'5.

Avalon is 5'3" flat, based on his film and television appearances.

A lot of box work through the years, he isn't even 5' 6".

Oh, he was definitely lying. It was so obvious on screen. I just saw a Patty Duke rerun he guest starred on. He was only a couple of inches taller than the 5' Patty. It changed a little from scene to scene. In the static scenes, where they stood still next to each other, he looked maybe 6" taller; but where they were walking around, he looked 3-3 1/2 inches taller. In scenes with Jean Byron (5'9"), she was about a head taller than him. He was 5'7" maybe in lifts and standing on a box!

Him saying he is barely 5'7" would pretty much confirm to me that he is under 5'7". I think he should be downgraded to 5'6" or 5'6.5" at most.

Rob is there a chance he is the 5ft 6in range now he is 71 nearly 72 he must have lost a inch by now he was defiantly in the 5ft 7in range when he was younger.
[Editor Rob: that would be probable ]

Total lie, met him 6 times, 5' 6" might be generous, 5' 5" is correct, wears elevators is correct, nice guy..doesn't age.

He always looked really small to me? I think he was a weak 5f4 in his prime :S
