I'm inclined more towards 5'7(or maybe 5'7 1/8 or something) after seeing him opposite 5'9.5 Marcello Mastroianni in The Sunday Woman.

Rob, can Trintignant have 5'7"?

Please see around 19:30, with 5'9" Roy Scheider looking two inches taller than Trintignant, and weak 5'8" Michel Bouquet looking one inch taller than Trintignant: Click Here

Yes. 172 cm is accurate

Never a full 5’8”. Even with his heels on in And God Created Women, Without Apparent Motive and The Outside Man, Trintignant always struggled to reach 5’8”.

5ft7.5 he was.

More 5'7.5" than 5'8". He always looked well under average height but 5'6" is cutting it too low, especially seeing Trintignant had a good inch on 5'6.5" Michel Serrault in Le Bon Plaisir.

Looks more like a 5’6” guy in every movie i have seen him in

Rob, could Trintignant please have 5’7.5” instead?

The above photo says it all, even with Trintignant’s booster heels, he clearly looks under 5’8” to me.
Editor Rob
It's arguable, but maybe the lowest I would go for him.

RIP monsieur Trintignant. I only just watched Flic Story this month on the 13th! Now Delon and Bardot are the only giant living French icons left from the 1960s!

5’7.5” to 5’7.75”

Similar height to very worthy add Jean Gabin. However, out of these two groundbreaking French performers, I reckon Gabin was a stronger 5’7.75”. I generally see Trintignant as a more 5’7.5” guy at peak, although 5’7.75” peak was definitely more likely than 5’7.25”. Trintignant could be 5’5” range today, he is 91 years old!
Sinclair said on 15/Feb/22
Rob, what peak height would you put Anouk Aimée at? 5’7”?
Editor Rob
At most 5ft 7, even bit under
Sinclair said on 23/Dec/21
Good one Rob! 5’7.75” for Trintignant is a great listing, 5’7.5” also possible but a full 5’8” was probably too high. He looked at most a weak 5’8” in all of his projects, notably in And God Created Women, The Conformist and Z. Alain Delon had two full inches on Trintignant in Flic Story. Trintignant made Michel Serrault seem 5’6.5” in Le Bon Plaisir, which is actually entirely plausible as Serrault was shorter than 5’7” Bernard Blier and 5’7” Jean Poiret. Now aged 91, I imagine Trintignant would be 5’6” range, if lucky.

If he only claimed 172 himself (like mande2013 said), why don't you give him that mark, Rob?
Editor Rob
it would seem reasonable.
Sinclair said on 20/Aug/20
I thought Jean-Louis Trintignant looked rather short in And God Created Women. 5’7.5” is my guess for Trintignant’s peak, he did not seem any more than two inches taller than Brigitte Bardot.

He mostly looks shorter. Handsome man but shortish ;)
mande2013 said on 20/Dec/15
Deneuve looks shorter than 5'6 in that picture.
Sam said on 30/Aug/15
Forgot that he states that in Maud's, just as likely 1.72 m as 1.73 m for Trintignant, after reviewing everything most likely a weak 5'8"er.
mande2013 said on 19/Aug/15
The character he plays in My Night at Maud's describes himself as 1m72. I'd say a weak 5'8.
Gonzalo said on 18/Aug/15
1,73 at the most. I wouldn´t be surprised if he was actually shorter than that
Sam said on 13/Aug/15
w/ Brigitte Bardot: Click Here
w/ Catherine Deneuve & Gerard Depardieu: Click Here
w/ Alain Delon: Click Here
In that last one, 5'8" looks pretty accurate compared to Delon at a smidge under 5'10".
Sam said on 13/Aug/15
Thanks for adding, this guy is a great actor, often as a quiet, internal kind of character but wow, what great later performances in Red and Amour.
Could you add Il Sorpasso, My Night at Maud's, Les Biches and The Great Silence?

Z is one of the greatest political thrillers ever made IMO.
