I think Peppard was 5'11.25 peak, 5'10.5 A-Team.

In my opinion he looked a strong 180 cm /5'11 feet. Not more.

He might have been 183-184cm range when they filmed Breakfast At Tiffany's and down to 182cm by the The A-Team years

George Peppard tall 183 cm? But since Rob?
I've been looking for him on the internet years ago, and he seems to me that there was 5'9" as his height, not surely 6 ft.
But where from come out six feet?
Come on, he would have been no more than 176 cm at best, look at him near to 173 cm Patricia Neal in "Breakfast at Tiffany's", there will been no more than 3 cm of difference.

Editor Rob: he definitely looked taller than Mr. T and Dirk Benedict in A-Team, so I think he could look close to 6ft.



Well, maybe Rob, I'm not saying no, certainly he didn't look so tall, even close to Audrey Hepburn, though with heels, he was a little taller than her.
Editor Rob: in heels I still felt George had more than an inch on Audrey.

He never looked tall in movies a full 6 ft is tall for Hollywood.
Always liked him but don't buy this height 5 11 peak seems generous.
He actually looked shorter average more often than not quite odd.
His posture looks normal to good so don't see him losing much there.
Dunno I've not seen any of his very early work might have shrunk.

After viewing Breakfast at Tiffany's again. He always looked 5 ft 8 to me. In Breakfast at Tiffany's most of the males in the movie were slightly taller than him.

.Been revisiting the A Team, again, and I've always felt Peppard was 6 feet. Could it have been a half inch under or over? Sure. But roughly, he was a 6 footer, especially based on the people he was around, co-stars included. Love when he was "on the jazz" in the A Team.
charlie said on 7/Feb/16
Audrey Hepburn was 5 foot 5 inches in Breakfast with Tiffany's she wore a standard 2 inch high heel shoe that would make her appear 5 foot 7 inches. George Peppard was 5 foot 9 flat feel. In shoes he would be a near 5 foot 10 inches that is a 3 inch difference through the movie. Hepburn Appeared tall and skinnier than other females but not much much. The average female is usually around 5 foot 2 to 5 foot 3 inches. So she would still be a tall girl at 5 foot 5 inches. You can see she and Peppard look about 3 inches in height difference through Breakfast At Tiffany's.. So George Peppard was 5 foot 9 inches 5 foot 10 in shoes

Could look closer to 5ft11 in The A-Team
Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 24/Mar/15
Newspapers in the 1960's listed Peppard as "six feet tall, weighs 170 pounds, has blue eyes and blond hair." A handsome actor of his day, he was probably in the 182 to 183 cm tall range.
Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 24/Mar/15
5 ft 6-1/2 - on the nose. Beautiful Actress. In Breakfast At Tiffany's she was approx. 3.5 to 4 inches shorter than the 6 ft 0 tall George Peppard, wearing her 3 inch heels, and he in his 1 inch heels.
Arch Stanton said on 21/Dec/14
He could look 6'1 in some of the scenes in Operation Crossbow although next to Loren didn't look over 6ft.
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 21/Nov/14
He looked at least 6ft in 'Breakfast at Tiffany's'. I think a very strong 183 cm to possible even 184 cm at peak.

Rob, how tall would you say Peppard looks here next to Harris and Connery?

This is circa 1990
Arch Stanton said on 30/Jul/14
Looks much better! Cheers!

Rob can you add a photo and American actor, best remembered for roles as the cigar-chomping wise-cracking mastermind of the 1980s TV series The A-Team, as Thomas Banacek in the 1970s TV series Banacek, and for roles in films such as Breakfast at Tiffany's, The Carpetbaggers, How the West Was Won, Tobruk, Blue Max, The Victors, Operation Crossbow, The Executioners and Damnation Alley.
[Editor Rob: yeah thanks, about 4 of those movies I've never seen...]
Arch Stanton said on 28/Jul/14
@Gonzalo in his seventies yeah, probably lost 1-2 inches. Honestly he looked similar to Christopher Lee on film, I'd say 6'4.5-6'4.75 peak for Villallonga.
Gonzalo said on 16/Apr/14
Arch, I saw Vilallonga in Madrid years ago. He was very close to 1`90 and he was in his seventies. Anyway, he was very tall but I don´t think he was over 1,93
Arch Stanton said on 22/Sep/13
Buddy Ebsen had about three inches on Peppard in Breakfast at Tiffany's and he was supposedly 6'3.5" so I think 6 ft more than 5'11 peak. But he did look more 181-2 in the A Team.
Arch Stanton said on 22/Sep/13

Keep in mind that Hepburn in heels in the film looks 5'10" ish next Peppard so I think she's be about 5'10" in that picture in heels. Vilallonga is on the left. I see about a 6 inches difference, maybe 7 accounting for her being nearer the camera.
Arch Stanton said on 22/Sep/13
Rob any idea how tall José Luis de Vilallonga was? See 39 minutes range Click Here He looks 6'4"-6'5" maybe next to George Peppard? I see a 6'6" listing somewhere for him but he didn't look that high. He looked proportionally similar to Christopher Lee. He didn't look under 6'4" I don't think but he might have been 6'5". What do you think?
[Editor Rob: he could be near to 6ft 4, never really seen much of him that I can remember apart from that bit I just watched.]

In the '40s through '60s, official heights added one inch, from shoe heels, for men, and two inches for men.

As a result, Peppard, who frequently wore loafers, in the '60s, in his prime.was probably only 5' 11'', in his barefeet, in his prime
Arch Stanton said on 3/May/13
182cm I'd guess.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Mar/13
It's possible, Jake. But in The A-Team he looked 181-182cm.
Jake: 1.82 m-- 1.83-- 1.84 m said on 3/Aug/12
Actually, I suspect he may've been a half-inch over this mark in his youth.
Shadow2 said on 10/Nov/10
I saw George in an episode of his earlier TV series "Banacek" recently, and in "office" scenes with 5'11.5" Robert Webber, George was an inch taller. However later in the show he and Webber are out jogging in "runners", and George is really struggling to just match Webber's height. Go figure!
Lawrence said on 5/Oct/07
Peppard's actually height was 5'11 and a half. He stated in a magazine that he hated to admit that he wasn't six feet.
MHouillon said on 5/Oct/06
I think also, that Peppard WAS 183cm in his prime, and 181cm-182cm during th A-Team-time.
Frank2 said on 23/Apr/06
Peppard was 6' tall when he was young. By the time of that series he had shrunk by about an inch to an inch and a half. Dirk was about 5'11".
Rut said on 22/Apr/06
Peppard lifts?? ridiculous!
Ohyeah! I think Benedict was more like 5.10 3/4 because I have him at 179cm in a book, not that much of a deal, but maybe you liked to know..
Frank2 said on 24/Mar/06
Peppard was 6', period! End of argument. I met him and he was taller than me by an inch. Hepburn wore two inch heels in Breakfast at Tiffany's and when they're together Peppard is four inches taller. I'm watching the film right now. Go by the long shots, not the damned close up's. It was routine to rearrange actors so they'd appear closer to the same height in close up's. It was an aesthetic thing. I know what I'm talking about.
Stiffelio said on 9/Mar/06
I insist: please re-watch Breakfast at Tiffany's. Peppard is only marginally taller than Hepburn there, not the 5" difference inplied by Frank2. So, either she's taller than 5ft 7in or Peppard is horter than 6ft...or both!
Frank2 said on 8/Mar/06
Peppard was six feet. I met him twice and both times he was taller than me by an inch. And Audrey was exactly 5'7" and wore shoes with one to two inch heels so she wouldn't look too tall with her leading men.
Stiffelio said on 30/Nov/05
Perhaps he was wearing lifts by the time of A-Team. So many people we've discussed in this forum do, or we assume they do, so why not Peppard.
Gotxo said on 29/Nov/05
In the A-team he looks taller than dirk benedict. Who knows maybe that feller was not 5'11 too. But 6 feet to him doesn't look excessive.
Stiffelio said on 29/Nov/05
I saw Breakfast at Tiffany's last night. There's a scene where Peppard is barefooted and Hepburn is wearing pumps and he looks barely two inches taller than her. My guess is Peppard was 5ft 10" max.
itziar said on 5/Sep/05
so how can you list Audrey Hepburn as a 5'7''?? if George Peppard is/was (don't know) 6ft, Audrey must have been 5'9'' at least!!!
