A lot of actors wore lifts if they knew they were doing several scenes with taller actors. Sometimes the directors wanted it that way too (i.e. hero versus villain).

He did a movie in the 1950's playing a cop, with 6' 3" George Sanders playing the villain. Merrill appeared about 5' 10" alongside Sanders.

I'd guess he was wearing lifts to not be dwarfed by Sanders. Not a chance this guy was a legit 5'10! Anything in 5 ft 8 range is arguable I guess though.

Steve I recommend Phone Call for a Stranger if you've not seen it.

Terrific actor. I just wached him in Twelve O'Clock High. He and everyone else in the cast gave an excellent, realistic performance.

Cheers, can you add Phone Call for a Stranger, The Wonderful Country, A Girl Named Tamiko and Huckleberry Finn? 5'8 looks spot on, always reminded me of Bogart on screen.
