5’7.75” is a perfect shout for Mr. Lom, my favourite actor. Peter Sellers was probably around half an inch taller than this talented legend. Both men looked very similar in height, particularly in The Ladykillers.

This guy was is some fantastic films and could do comedy and menacing equally well! His comedy was based on his 'little man - big temper' appearance I think! If he'd been huge, it wouldn't have been quite so comical!
Herbert also starred in a 70's horror called 'Asylum', wherein he had the cream of all the patients' roles! It also starred Robert Powell as a young psychiatrist being shown round an institution and hearing the stories of how the patients ended up there! Herbert's little tale is saved until last!
I reckon Herbie was 5ft7.75 in his prime.

I have always thought he was a short man, in the 1`70 área. Great actor and great voice

I guessed him at 5'8" so we all seem to line up regarding him. Actually I think he and Sellers were pretty close in height.

I guess at times he could look near an inch shorter than Sellers though.

Thanks Rob, can you also squeeze in War and Peace, Count Dracula, Gambit and King Solomon's Mines? Well I always guessed him at 5 ft 8 flat, in fact in Dorian Gray he looked to have the edge on Richard Todd! But I'm not going to quibble about 0.25 of an inch :-)
