How tall was George Romero

George Romero's Height

6ft 4 ½ (194.3 cm)

American film director, best remembered for directing movies such as Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead and The Crazies. John Leguiziamo called him '6ft 5'. A 1982 news article mentioned "Romero, a solid 6-foot-4" and in 1979 "He is 6 feet 4 inches tall with a gangly gait and slight stoop. He says of his height, 'I feel indiscreet.'"

There’s nothing quite like an introduction by Caroline Munro for arousing one’s interest in a film and tonight on the Talking Pictures channel, she has introduced George A Romero’s first ever movie from 1968, entitled ‘Night of the Living Dead’. If I’ve seen it before, it hasn’t been for many years, but I do recognise much of what I’ve seen so far.

Caroline added that this film inspired directors John Carpenter and David Cronenberg with their horror style. It’s in black and white, so won’t be as vivid as those from the aforementioned directors, but it’ll be good to observe how far film making of the horror genre has come in over half a century.

Rob maybe 6’4 ¾ for his peak would be a good starting point? You have Stephen King at 6’3 ½ peak, and safe to say he was at that mark in the photos Rampage provided.
Tall Sam said on 2/Jul/22
I agree a good candidate for 6’5” peak, he looked pretty strongly near the mark at least.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Jun/22
Rob, I definitely wouldn't discount 6ft5 peak for George

Looks to have more than an inch on Stephen King. I think there's a pretty good chance Stephen was a 6ft3 and change guy (only ever claimed 6ft3 - never heard him say 6ft4).
David Tang said on 17/Jun/22
6'4.5-6'5. rob do you that is more likely than 6'4 6'4.5 peak.
Editor Rob
At peak I think it's likely he cleared it, but was he a full 6ft 5, that is the question.
Trooper said on 2/Jan/22
Are you sure he edges out Jared Padalecki?
Editor Rob
Certainly in early 60's still looked a big 6ft 4 guy. Just a question if he was 6ft 4.5 or 5 peak.
Tall Sam said on 1/Jan/22
195 cm listing would be fitting, Romero bordered on hugely tall even next to tall people like Stephen King.
Ian Momo 'Questionable 5'10' said on 1/Jan/22
look about 1-1.5 inch taller than peak Stephen King depends on the photos.

Arch Stanton said on 31/Dec/21
Yeah he could give the impression of a 195cm guy in his prime. It 's rare to see a guy his age that tall as in the above pic! Not a massive fan of his films, some better than others but certainly a legend in his field.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 29/Aug/21
What a delightful 'Tales From The Darkside' I've just seen!

It was from 1985 and about a young family with a little girl with a mischievous teddy bear. Entitled 'Ursa Minor', and the 10th episode of Season 2, the very name gives away that there're going to be bigger bears showing up.

The Mum starts believing that the naughty goings on can't be down to her daughter, her husband having a more light-hearted view. After chatting to a specialist on mysticism, she learns that the bear has a scary history dating back centuries.

She's advised to buy her daughter a doll, but she chooses one with golden hair! The teddy is thrown away, but predictably he returns at night, ruining the child's doll and eating her hair, which the mother finds in the teddy bear's 'stomach'. The story ends when the bear's parents, who are real bears, show up to take revenge for the Mum destroying their 'baby'!

The late, great George gets 6ft4.5.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Aug/21
Rob, is 195cm peak possible?
Editor Rob
yeah there's a chance of it
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 19/Aug/21
What a massive guy George was, and he was big in the field of all things mystical and mysterious as well. 🔮🃏

And to think of it, George was still with us when I first came here. So much has happened in five years..... 😢

6ft4.5. 🕯️💐
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Jun/21
I would say he still looked 6ft4 w/h Rob...peak wouldn't rule out 6ft5...looked like a stretched out Martin Scorsese
ChaosControl 6'2.50 said on 25/Jun/21
He looks about 6’2-3 with you Rob. How okd was he then?
Editor Rob
he still looked near 6ft 4 in his 60's, however like I'd mentioned in his 70's he had dropped to nearer 6ft 2.
Mikester said on 31/Mar/21
didn't lose much with age.
Editor Rob
Up till this photo he looked very tall, but a decade after this photo he did shrink more and look over an inch shorter
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 10/Jan/21
I saw a very interesting episode of 'Tales From The Darkside' last night about a dishonest art dealer who got his hands on a 16th Century painting and Saint Bartholomew's drinking mug, which assuaged the thirsts of many suffering people.

He underestimated the power of the ancient cup and didn't realize that the painting was a depiction of someone being tortured by a red-clad monk from the Spanish Inquisition. Consequently, he was transported back some 4 centuries and it's then that we see that the picture is one of HIM being tortured. The monk questions him and he lies, and then the art dealer 'wakes up' back in the 20th Century again, the picture having changed.

Then there's a knock at the door and it's the red-clad monk, telling him how perilous the consequences are when you lie to the Spanish Inquisition.

The episode concludes with the greedy, dishonest art dealer spending the rest of eternity burning - that's if the second picture is to be believed, and the original one is a painting of his first fateful encounter, in which he shows no respect for Saint Bartholomew's bowl and throws it, and openly lies when he's questioned.

You could say that many of these stories have hidden meanings and are, in fact, modern day fairy tales, often with parable style qualities.

George gets 6ft4.75. I've often thought how annoying it could be to be so tall, and on show all the time. George's word 'indiscreet' sums it up nicely!

RIP George A Romero 🕯️XXX

"Brian Tobbs said on 7/Sep/20
Rob, How tall do you think the guy immediately to the right of romero (with the black jacket) is? Click Here
Editor Rob
Romero by that stage lost more height, so that guy could be shorter than myself."
Surely you mean the guy with the green sweatshirt, Rob? The guy with the black jacket... I know him, not sure about him, but he always looked a big guy over 6' to me. Certainly, I would safely rule out him being shorter than you ;-)
Editor Rob
yeah, I was looking at the guys on the right who look significantly shorter than George.

195cm prime.

6'4.75 prime
OriginalAnon said on 8/Jul/20
Must have been very close to 6'5'' in his prime, if not over.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Apr/20
This mark is fair since he was usually described either 6ft4 or 6ft5. But then again, I’m sure Tim Robbins was also given the former in his early career
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 28/Feb/20
This man had such an amazing mind. Last weekend I saw an episode of 'Tales From the Dark Side', about a 7-year-old little girl, Audrey, whose Uncle finds her an abandoned dolls' house with 4 of the most revolting dolls you ever did see!

Whatever happened to the dolls happened to her family. It appeared that she could communicate with them and that they spoke to her.

It was really freaky!

MatthieuLenson said on 29/Nov/19
Rob, how big could his head be?
Editor Rob
For 6ft 4-5 I think a typical 9.5 range
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 27/Apr/19
What a loss George was to the American film industry. Always enjoyed his movies and always will.

6ft5, peak.
James Keffer (185 cm) said on 30/Dec/18
Could've been 6'5 in his peak.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 23/Aug/18
@Canson Yes sir! Peter Hermann
Canson said on 31/Jul/18
@Dream: Peter Hermann too
Dream(5'9.5") said on 30/Jul/18
Nah. I would say he's closer to 6'4.625".

Also, big, proper, and strong 6'5" guys would be Metta World Peace, Wladimir Klitschko, Bo Burnham, Howard Stern, Nonso Anozie, Tom Noonan, Douglas Adams, John Cleese, King Felipe, and Will Sampson.
Rourke said on 26/Jul/18
He could probably pull off a little over 6’5 in his younger days
Dream(5'9.5") said on 20/Mar/18
Rob, he actually still looks frail in this photo.

Now, I really wished I had the chance to see him in person.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 19/Mar/18
If he managed to appear closer to 6’4” In 2005, then
Maybe 6’4” 5/8ths would be a strong possibility for George Romero.

I mean, he was definitely taller than a peak Stephen King (who was once close to 6’4”, but he got hit by a camper truck and broke two of his legs during a car crash).
Dream(5'9.5 said on 11/Mar/18
Rob, you mentioned you say Christopher Lee up close.

Who left you with a taller impression, George Romero or Christopher Lee?
Editor Rob
Romero up close was taller than Lee, much closer to 6ft 4...but then, Lee was older and naturally had lost some height.

But the last time I seen Romero was in Brighton in 2015...believe me, he had shrunk to looking at most 6ft 2 then, compared to near 6ft 4 10 years previously. He looked more frail too then.
Danimal 5'9 3/4 said on 28/Dec/17
This picture is a decade old Rob. The man died 9 years after the pic of you and him was taken. I am sure he lost more height since then.
Editor Rob
he did lose a couple of inches by the last 2 years, at least in person he wasn't anywhere near 6ft 4 in his last few years...but of course, when somebody passes, they get put back to the peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Oct/17
He still looked at least decent 6ft4 w/h Rob so chances are he was once 6ft5
Bobby said on 3/Oct/17
In a lot of cases, at 6'4 and beyond, you really stand out. That said, once you clear a certain height by half an inch or more, you're easily mistaken for being half an inch or a quarter inch taller than you measure at that time.
Slim said on 17/Sep/17
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Sep/17
Rob, is 6ft5 peak a possibility?
I know I'm not rob, but this Guy was probably 6'5" in his youth.

Rob, is 6ft5 peak a possibility?
Mark(5'9.5 said on 22/Jul/17
A 6'4.5" can easily be mistaken for 6'5" since it's only rounding up by half an inch. Also, even in this photo, this guy is already very tall.

R.I.P. George. You are missed.
Hans Meiser said on 21/Jul/17
I thought he would be a 5'8-5'9 guy, but wow, he was huge. RIP to a director who shaped the film industry and made original movies with heart & soul. Cheers.

the height is 6 foot 4 , the weight must be at least 250 pounds

Goodnight you charming, talented legend.
Always to be missed.
Forever to be respected.

RIP George xxx
Editor Rob
the last time I seen George was over a year ago, he was at a convention in Brighton and was still giving pleasure to fans who met him.

He was quite frail by then, in contrast to how I remembered meeting him 10 years previously in Milton Keynes.

So, so upset.
I can't take this in yet.

I believe he was 195cm when he was young..

Next to Rob George seems still a strong 193cm
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 12/Jun/17
Looked 192.5cm here in 2008. Peak maybe 194. He was never 6'5" as some people here say he was.
World Citizen said on 6/Jun/17
Looks 192 cm
RichardSpain said on 4/Apr/17
Good genetics Romero. He always was 194cm as today 194cm. Doesn't lost!
Peter 179cm said on 4/Jan/17
Looks like a weak 192cm in the photo,maybe around 6'3.5
Jordan87 said on 14/Dec/16
6'3.75" at age 68 ( When photo was taken). Believable to be a 6'5 Man in his youth.
Sandy Cowell said on 13/Dec/16
What a fantastically friendly guy! Meeting people like him, Rob, must be a tremendous thrill for you and Jenny!
I somehow figured he would be tall, and he is - he's quite a giant of a man with a grin to match! I'll go with 6ft4.5.
Giorgi said on 24/Nov/16
I think I read that his father was Cuban Spanish and his mother was Lithuanian. The Spanish don't tend to be tall so I guess his eastern European roots must be responsible :)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Sep/16
He looks like a very tall Martin Scorsese
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/May/16
But Rob when you met him for this picture, did he still look 6ft4 range then?
Editor Rob
10 years ago he looked much nearer to how a 6ft 4 looks...the last time i seen him was november last year, he really looked a couple of inches smaller, but then he is much more frailer these days and has clearly lost height.
Lord Beerus said on 23/May/16
I'd say strong 6ft3.5 and weak 6ft4.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Mar/16
Wow, really as low as 6ft1-2 today, Rob?
Editor Rob
he's much frailer now and really does look a couple of inches smaller than 10 years ago.
pablo77bar(184cm) said on 27/Nov/15
Very very similar to Mcpartlin in this pic.
Probably touched the 6ft 5 in the early days
Editor Rob
I seen him up close again not that long ago and was surprised that he looked to walk about 6ft 1-2 range, but then his posture is poorer now...what he'd be able to stretch up for to measure is harder to tell.
Sam said on 21/Oct/15
I still think 6'5" at peak is quite possible for Romero.
SJH said on 26/Sep/15
He was 6'3 here. Look at the high up neck. He could have lost height from neck and spine. Maybe 6'5 at peak. 6'3.25 if standing straight
Ice said on 19/Apr/15
Small heads look thousand times better than big heads ..
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Dec/14
195-196cm peak. Around the same as Tim Robbins
Lonestar said on 15/Dec/14
Maybe a flat 6'4 nowadays consider he was in his 70s
Editor Rob
this year I saw him again and he is getting more frail and more 6ft 3 than 4 today, but I think just giving him his peak is ok.
Dmeyer said on 10/Nov/14
Good thing with being 6'2-6'4 is that évén if you shrink you are 6ft or over
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Oct/14
Actually, maybe still a strong 6ft4 when straightened out.
Editor Rob
this year he is nearer 6ft 3 I believe
Danimal said on 13/Oct/14
Just saw Just Desserts: The Making of Creepshow and there's a scene of him standing side by side Ted Danson (from 1981) and George TOWERED over him. Easily 6'6" in his prime. He had developed a serious hunched back/neck (a la Robert Plant). Clearly lose height since his prime.
mike said on 21/Jun/14
Rob, no period at the end of (photo by Malcolm)
Editor Rob
I'll edit that.

Rob, when will get a peak height i 194-196 peak and 191-193 today.
Arch Stanton said on 5/Feb/14
5'6 is surely the most Scott could be, Flyboy I think 5'10" ish.
Sam said on 5/Feb/14
Scott was made fun quite a bit for his diminutive size by Ken Foree on the Dawn of the Dead audio commentaries. I'd guess 5'5"-5'6" range. "Flyboy", I think was around 5'9" or so.
Arch Stanton said on 3/Feb/14
Reiniger's listed at 5 ft 7, no way!! 5'5" max.
Arch Stanton said on 3/Feb/14
Of course!! Yeah I enjoyed Dawn of the Dead, a lot more action even if the quality of imagery isn't great and the white face paint and blood looks cheap and fake. How tall would you guess Scott Reiniger to be Sam? I always thought he never looked more than 5 ft 5, Ken has a full foot on him I reckon.
Sam said on 3/Feb/14
Have you seen Dawn of the Dead, Arch?
Arch Stanton said on 31/Jan/14
I know Sam, Night of the Living Dead seems to be one of the very few films I disagree with the majority on. For me it lacked suspense. It's a horror movie, yet within the first ten minutes a big black guy it boarding her up in the house and gives a commanding manly demeanour in doing so which destroys the vulnerability of her character. Compare it to Texas Chain in terms of creepiness. I rather liked the beginning and end of the the Night, that looked stylish, but it was the time inside the house with little focus on the zombies with so many people which took away the fear factor and suspense for me.
Sam said on 30/Jan/14
Respectfully disagree there, Arch. I think Night certainly shows it's age and budget but is a very effective, creepy film nonetheless. Dawn of the Dead is better IMO but they are both solid horror classics, I feel.
Arch Stanton said on 27/Jan/14
Zombie says on 26/Mar/13
Amazing director. Night of the living dead (1968) will always remain a classic amongst his other films.

I've got to disagree mate about Night of the Living. Most of the film is pretty boring. It's more a DIY movie of boarding up a house than a proper horror movie. Obviously the guy's a legend in the horror film world but it was a low budget film with amateur actors and it showed. If you want a good edgy movie from 1968 try Rosemary's Baby or Hour of the Wolf.
Arch Stanton said on 27/Jan/14
Rob any idea about Duane Jones, the black guy from Night of the Living? I see some bizarre 5'6 listings on the web but he's way bigger than the other guys in the film and actually gives a similar height impression/look to Sidney Poitier, he was surely more 6'1 or 6'2 than 5'6"!!
Editor Rob
he was a tall guy yeah over 6ft, I think you can safely rule out 5ft 6.
Lenad said on 25/Dec/13
192cm. Probably closer to 6'5 prime
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Dec/13
"Peak height was 6ft 5in (196cm)"
"George Romero's height is 6ft 4in (193cm)"
Matt 184.7-186.7cm said on 27/Oct/13
Rob should this guy be given a peak height of 6ft 5 then? he looks like his torso lost a bit of height, and would 6ft 4 flat today be more realistic?
Editor Rob
but about 6ft 4 when I met him, he could have lost a bit or a full inch, that is something I'm not sure of.
Sam said on 10/Sep/13
Ice, then either you or the 5'8" guy believes they are the wrong height. To me, this is what a 6'4" guy looks like posing with a 5'8" guy.
Ice said on 8/Sep/13
ist funny how i am 6'1 and look this tall next to a 5'8 Person

I have noticed guys in the 5'8-5'9.75 range are the most height obsessed
Bard said on 6/Apr/13
Looks at least 6'4. But he's old so he could've definitely been 6'5+ in his prime.
Zombie said on 26/Mar/13
Amazing director. Night of the living dead (1968) will always remain a classic amongst his other films.
Mike said on 12/Mar/13
Bet he got a lot of his height from his Lithuanian mother. I'm part Lithuanian and I can tell you those folks are some of the biggest white people you'll ever meet. Tall, broad shouldered, square jawed fierce looking folks.
James said on 8/Feb/13
6'4 (193cm) today
6'5 (196cm) peak
Sam said on 15/Jan/13
He is called 6'5" in the extra features of Dawn of the Dead (specifically Ken Foree claims 6'5" and says Romero is the same height as him) and he was 68 years old when you meet him. Rob, would you consider listing a 6'5" peak for him/6'4.5" or 6'4.25" current height?
The Horse of FUNK said on 21/Nov/12
I could believe 6'5" for his younger years.

Also, those glasses could see into the future.
Shaun said on 14/Oct/12
Rob do you think he could have been 6'5.5" peak? 6 ft 6 would be pushing it don't you think? The average 68 year old has probably lost 0.5-1 inch?
Editor Rob
it is possible he was 6ft 5, but that weekend he really wasn't much taller than kevin sorbo
Shaun said on 14/Oct/12
Well he'd have been 68 here, might have been 6'5.5" peak. I saw he was easily 6 ft 5 as a young man 6 ft 6 might be pushing it a little but he could have been it out of bed at peak I suppose.
The Exorcist said on 8/Oct/12
Wow! He must've been REALLY tall when he was younger. He looks 6'5" in the photo with Rob.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Aug/12
196-197cm peak, 194cm now
Danimal said on 6/Jun/12
Was an easy 6'6" in his younger days.
Adam said on 31/Jan/12
Considering how old he is, he could have well been 6'5 in his younger years.
Mark D. said on 29/Jan/12
I'm 6'4.5", that's how much taller I'd be next to someone who is 5'8" (Rob). John Leguziamo calling him 6'5" confirms it, since that's what people often refer to me as (folks tend to round up, not down, referring to tall people).
steven said on 7/Jan/12
looks like he tip down his head a little look 6'3 but when stand straight he could pass 6'4 and 6'4.5 is right. his beard and hair fool people he had longer head it atually look like a regular long size 9.75-10.25" for 6'4-6'6 people. shaq o neal is 7" and he had a small head and shorter than 10.5" for a 7footer height should have.
Editor Rob
are you going to stick with this name rather than the older name, if you do then I will let comments through.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Jan/12
196cm(6"5) in his prime. Taller than Tim Robbins
and identical to Vince Vaughn. Today is near
6"4 flat or 193-194cm.
Sam said on 12/Dec/11
I don't see how people (considering posture and stance) could consider Romero to look under 6'4" in that photo
ACG said on 27/Nov/11
There's a teacher at my college who looks nearly identical to him(same glasses, too) but is more than a full foot shorter.

I don't know his name so whenever I see him, I just think "George Romero's mini-me". haha
Physics Enemy said on 22/Nov/11
Strong 6' 3" but no more these days.
Physics Enemy said on 21/Nov/11
Shaun - Matt's pic shows this guy stands 6' 3.75 in the pic with Rob against the stadiometer (deducting 2mm error). But he's in shoes (as Matt ALWAYS forgets!). That's 6' 2.75". But he could be standing taller. Solid 6' 3" (1-2 mm over).
leo said on 15/Nov/11
definitely 6'6" or even slightly more in his prime.
LAN Jiao said on 8/Nov/11
yes shuan he could be 195cm stand tall. by the way his chin beard and hair makes illusion of 11 inch head. lol he can't had over 26cm head. his head length is more like a fraction over 10". 11" is 27.5cm it usually fits a 6'9-7'0 giant , most 6'7 to 6'10 people had normal head length 25-26cm i have seen. paul wight had about a head length 11.75"(28.75cm) due to acromegaly that pull down looking shorter than his atual height.
Danimal said on 2/Nov/11
At 70+ years of age he has lost quite a bit of height. I'd say a full 2". His posture these is horrendous. If you saw pictures of this guys from the late 60's up until the mid 80's, he looked MUCH more imposing than he has in recent years. He's frail today and has developed a horrible hunch in his neck and upper back. I say he was 6'6" in his younger days and 6'4" today. A picture of him in the late 70's: Click Here

Him 30 years later: Click Here
Shaun said on 2/Nov/11
No he doesn't Lan Jiao. Look at the link below I provided. He looks nearer 195 than 190.
LAN Jiao said on 31/Oct/11
he atually stand relax and look about 190cm with rob. a push straight 194cm i think.

193cm with Rob, 194 upstraight, the listing is accurate.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Oct/11
192cm-193cm max with Rob
Shaun said on 6/Oct/11
Thought and are Andreaita are two different things entirely Andreaita. A head is generally about 10 inches. This guy might have an 11 inch head as its sort of egg shaped! Rob comes up to his lip level, so this guy looks an easy 8 inches taller. Just remember that a head is about 10 inches in future when you estimate.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 4/Oct/11
yeah! thought he looked that next to Rob! I mean... he's just under his nose! but with this pic i can say i was wrong :) i know that from the eyebrow to the top of the head, its 10 cms, if the head is not tilted up or down! In this pic he doesnt seem to tilt his head much! he has 4 inches from the mid of his head to the top? O.o its strange

He's nearer 195cm than 190cm Andrea. You don't seem at all that bad , so apologies to say "pathetic" but I think you really underestimate people's heights, not the first time I've seen you do so.

190 you say..
EdgarHernandez said on 30/Sep/11
andrea ita, lets get this straight, the man is not forcing posture, in fact he is relaxed, and his chin is just 2 inches from being over his head, well, lets take in acount that a common head is, lets said between 8 to 9 inches, but this guys head as you can see, is massive. If romero just stod straight he could do what i do with my 5ft 1 mother, put his chin just over his head withour difucult. only guys at 6ft 4 or higer can do this.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 20/Sep/11
O yeah! Shaun! You are bad at estimates! I just see the photo and say what he looks! Rob's top head is a bit lower than his nose, so that would be no more than 17 cms! I just say in this photo he looks 190! Im not saying he's 190! :@
That's how a legit 190 man would look next to a 5'8 man!
Tommy said on 29/Aug/11
He looks like the old man from UP lol. Btw he looks what he claims
Shaun said on 27/Aug/11
Andreaita you are even worse than Viper and Legend with your pathetic estimates.
Heightgirl said on 10/Aug/11
Holy crap he's tall lol He certainly looks 6f4ish.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 5/Aug/11
Looks 190 next to rob! Maybe 192 standing straight!
Shaun said on 18/Jul/11
Yeah its very rare to see a 70+ year old man this tall.
Shaun said on 18/Jul/11
Had to have been 6'5" in his 20s.
Cranberries (18m, 192cm dinnertime) said on 8/Jul/11
Indeed, those are some VERY large "specs" he's wearing. :P.
Lenad said on 5/Jun/11
Looks 6'3ish with his posture. Up straight 6'4ish
Jonny said on 31/May/11
I had no idea how TALL he was! Or how BIG his specs were!
Chameleon said on 24/May/11
Actully he looks 6'4 here with Rob and 194cm if he stood straight.

James says on 17/Apr/11
Rob would you agree George looks 6'2.75 (190cm) compared to you in the photo??

He is clearly about 9" taller than Rob. That would make him about 6'5". If you can't see that, then you don't know what you're talking about. He is 6'4.5" minimum next to Rob. I'd bet my life on that.
Zach H said on 18/May/11
He is a big guy looks a little bigger than 6 foot 4 inches
biggie said on 18/May/11
I never thought that he is so tall.
great director

Omfg, what a huge gramp he is :o)
Lenad said on 29/Apr/11
I'd say 6'4-ish today

192-193cm with Rob...

I think he appears 6ft 4 range.

although I think he looked very close in height to kevin sorbo that day!
Davy Jones said on 14/Apr/11
He might not be very old, but hes definatly lost some height. Coulda easily been 6'5" peak.
Aaron said on 4/Apr/11
You're right, Derek. I didn't realize; he looked so much older. 6'4" Selleck is 66 too, and looks more spry than this guy. Still surprised Romero is so BIG; Hollywood's usually a dwarftown.
Derek d said on 2/Apr/11
Everyone keeps saying he's so old but he's really not. He was 66 in this picture, only 2 years older than Sly who's still jumping out of planes and doing his own stunts.
Aaron said on 2/Apr/11
How did I never know Romero was this tall? I figured he was De Niro sized... Christ is he big! Legit 6'4.5"++++.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Mar/11
Looks 191-192cm or 6"3.5 max with Rob...with better posture no shorter than 6"4.

He most likely peaked at a solid 6"5 maybe even 197cm
James said on 23/Feb/11
190cm with bad posture
James said on 22/Feb/11
Looks no more than 6'3 (191cm) with rob that is probably bad posture.
Shaun said on 9/Feb/11

Funny how he is still meets people taller...

Yeah you could be 7 feet and there is always somebody in the world even taller!! At times I've felt really big at 6'1.5" compared to some people but when I've met blokes built like Martin Johnson (6'7" 18 stone) I've really felt shrimped out...
somebody new said on 26/Jan/11
he could be pretty close to 6'5

Legit 6"5 at his peak...196-197cm
Matt said on 18/Nov/10
I actually used this photo with the photo of rob standing next to the height stand and he came up to an exact 193cm, flat 6ft 4 nowdays. in his prime probably 6ft 5
hashkieloeloe said on 11/Nov/10
a big guy. definatley nothing less than 6´3. probably 6´4/6´5. gyeah!
yoyo said on 8/Jul/09
6ft5 was with shoes.. 6ft4 in reality still fits a 'huge' guy.. i just encounter that 95% peak height with shoes.. To say a guy barely 5ft11 could peak at 6ft
Doug said on 22/Jun/09
Derek if Romero stood up straight he would be virtually a full head taller than Rob. He has a large head too. Looks to me like a clear 8-9 inch height difference so 6 ft 4.5 is bang on.
Anonymous said on 22/Jun/09
There are only 2 inches seperating the top of Rob's head and his eyes. Rob's head comes up to the bottom of his nose. Thats 7 inches.

Are u sure he is 6'4 ? looks 6'6

The most Romero has shrunk is an inch Id say. 6-5.5 peak and now 6-4.5
Danimal said on 3/Jun/09
spence says on 23/Dec/08
his looks alot taller than 6ft2 Donald Sutherland. his 6ft5. look above he has a very bad standing posture and a little hunch makes him look 6ft4 beside Rob.

Donald was 6'4" when he was younger. Romero was said to have been 6'6" in his younger years. He's an old man now who could have lost close to 2" from the looks of it.
Hugh 190cm said on 3/Jun/09

dmeyer said on 31/Jan/08
glenn is similar height with rob
glenn said on 31/Jan/08
another tall old brother? this is a legendary director.
Ejel Khan said on 3/Nov/07
Met George, he's such a lovely man. I will cherish the time I met him. Got a pic with him unfortunately he's sitting down! I saw him stand up and take a pic. I estimated he was 6'4".
18,181 said on 16/Aug/07
I can say that he looks at least as tall as my dad,whos 6'4 3/4in,since my dad has a friend whos also glenns height this guy is truly very tall.Surely over 6'5 at his peak.
5'11 guy said on 18/Apr/07
This guy is huge. Looks 6'6.
bosse said on 13/Apr/07
looks a legit 6'6 standing straight.
Brad said on 15/Mar/07
Yeah, 6' 5" at an L.A. horror convention. Saw "Night Of The Living Dead" in '69 and couldn't sleep for a week. Awesome in black & white. Color would have made it too bright. He agreed.
Anonymous said on 17/Jan/07
Considering people start to shrink as they get older, i'd say he started @ 6'5.5" & has lost an inch so 6'4.5" is about right IMO.
Glenn said on 15/Dec/06
Thank you Sam.Id believe 6-6!
sam said on 13/Dec/06
On the Dawn of the Dead, Ken Foree said repeatedly that he's 6'5" and that George is the same height.
Alex said on 18/Oct/06
Looks 6'5, no more than that.
venus said on 10/Oct/06
He looks 6'4.5. I will give him that.
Glenn said on 12/Sep/06
Im pretty sure strectched out this guy is 6-6.
Viper652 said on 11/Sep/06
Yeah, he looked at least 6-5 or taller in a Dawn of the Dead the making of documentary.
trueheight said on 10/Sep/06
he looked humongous in archival footage of Night and Dawn, towering over everyone; he even looked gigantic sitting down when I saw him
Viper652 said on 29/Jul/06
I find it funny on this page that Jone says Romero is only 6-3, while he also says Arnold Sharzenegger is 6-4 LOL. This guy would tower over Arnold.
Viper652 said on 27/Jul/06
Is Bruce downplaying his height?
Glenn said on 27/Jul/06
Thank you Trueheight.
trueheight said on 26/Jul/06
I agree, I saw 6'3 for bruce. plus he's a big guy all around. I dunno why even in his book he mentions 6ft(indirectly) b/c I saw him standing for photos and he towered over almost everyone. again he was ALOT bigger than other 6ft+ around him weight-wise
Glenn said on 17/Jul/06
I love this site more than any other in the web world,but this isnt the be all,end all and 100% accuracy on heights.neither is my words.but I believe,even in films,Campbell is at least 6-1,possibly as big as 6-3.and I couldve swore he told me 6-3 in 1989.I could be wrong.
Viper652 said on 16/Jul/06
Campbell might have been wearing lifts when you met him. Hes quoted on this site that hes 6-1 in boots.
Glenn said on 15/Jul/06
Yeah,where did this 6ft campbell crap come from? he was 6-3 when I met him too.
Viper652 said on 14/Jul/06
Hes shocked that Romero is that tall.
super said on 12/Jul/06
Glenn, you look kind of shocked in the that picture.
trueheight said on 22/Jun/06
yea. also bruce cambpell is really about 6'3, i just met him for the 1st time a few weeks ago
Viper652 said on 14/May/06
Rob should probably upgrade this guy to at least 6-5. Hes always looked over 6-5 to me.
Glenn said on 13/May/06
I agree 100%.Im almost willing to bet my life he is close to 6-6.
trueheight said on 10/May/06
he is a humoungous guy. I've seen him numerous times over the years at conventions. I've never had a photo taken w/ the man but he was about as tall as my girlfriend at comicon '05 SITTING DOWN LOL. Met Ken Foree(huge as well) as well and he's the coolest guy, even gave us some tickets to the DoD evening screening that we didn't have(in which Romero, Foree and Reineger did a Q&A). He even tolerated my Keenan and Kel questions!
Steve said on 5/May/06
I forgot to add he was slouching so maybe he could be 6'5" if straight. One hell of a nice guy thoe.
Steve said on 4/May/06
Romero is 6'4" I am just under 6'1" and was surprised by how tall he was at the Premier of "Land of the Dead" last year in Edinburgh.
sam said on 3/May/06
Coming from a guy who's almost 6'5", trust me when your that tall, lifts aren't something you'd be into.
Glenn said on 11/Apr/06
No way 6-3.near 6-6.I was there.friend witnessed this height as well a year ago in vegas.

Editor Rob
maybe a lifts guy?

larry said on 11/Apr/06
My wife is 5'8" and there are myriad photos of me with her. George looks 6'4.5" to 5" tall to me.
