No way. Belmondo height 174, maybe 175 but no more.

Whereas Lino Ventura claimed 169cm and 82kg

Rob,how tall do you think Lino Ventura was?I found 176 for him but since he claimed 175 that's ruled out.Strangely IMDB gave him only 169.Hmmm,in 100,000 Dollars au Soleil he seemed maybe 5cm smaller than Belmondo so I guess rather 172-3 and 175 in shoes?
Editor Rob
yeah a couple of inches under Belmondo might be fair...can't see him as only 169cm though

Belmondo has looked roughly 5 ft 10 in a lot of films though. I never saw him as a 5 ft 9 range guy.

I think Belmondo was a tad shorter than Alain Delon, as seen in Borsalino, but the height difference between Delon and Belmondo was not significant. I’d estimate 5’9.75” for Delon, 5’9.25” for Belmondo. At a pinch, maybe Belmondo could have pulled off 5’9.5” but in my opinion, 5’9.25” seems the best option for Belmondo’s peak height.

I love that guy!
I think he was 176cm

He was 174 cm.

Bourvil who claimed 171 was 2-3 cm smaller than him in the movie "the brain" 1969. I can t see 3 inch difference.

Delon s height 177 always got 2-3 cm on him.

belmondo was know by wearing boot ..

5'10 flat looks accurate with Bisset in Le Magnifique. Both barefoot by the pool and Belmondo looks between 2 and 3 inches taller. Belmondo had a surprisingly great physique, obviously dedicated to fitness, like Charles Bronson I think he was a heavy snoker and drinker too, can't understand all that effort going into fitness and then polluting it like that!

Peak 5'10.75" (180 cm)
Now 5'9.25" (176 cm)
Arch Stanton said on 20/Sep/15
Taller than 5'9 unless he wore lifts all the time. He was a few inches taller than 5'6 Catherine Deneuve even in a heel. Spot on I think at 5'10.5

Maurice Pialat and Carlos Saura are underrated.

How is Bresson underrated? He's one of the most prominently ranked directors on They Shoot Pictures, Don't They? (

179cm it is absurt. his height is 174-176cm
Sam said on 4/Aug/15
Arch, on your old idea on Asselin. I really like Bresson, actually think he's often underrated as one of the greats, even something as bleak as L'argent, but I personally just can't stomach cruelty to animals, so Au Hasard Balthazar was too disturbing for me to enjoy. The ending is beautiful in its own awful way, sort of like the hunting scene in Rules of the Game. I don't recall any individual actors' heights from Balthazar.

I remember Le Professionnel well and he seemed a compact average 5'9" in that role, he was probably c.50 yrs... 176cm sounds like a more realistic peak imo...
mande2013 said on 21/Jul/15
I think the point is Delon and Belmondo were solid 5'9+ guys in their respective primes, even verging on 5'10.

As for other French New Wave icons, what do people think the heights were for say Anna Karina, Jeanne Moreau, and Jean-Pierre Leaud. You could also throw in Jean-Claude Brialy.

Karina I'm guessing was 169-170 cm range. Jeanne Moreau was a more modest 160, but hardly tiny for a female. A tiny female would be someone like Veronica Lake. Leaud's listed as 5'7 just about everywhere but I suspect he was more like 5'6, possibly 5'6.25. 6'1 Michael Lonsdale had almost a whole head on him in Stolen Kisses. Leaud was just an excellently built and proportioned guy for his height, which is why he didn't always give such a small impression. Brialy I guess was 5'8.5-5'9 range. What do people think?
Arch Stanton said on 18/Jan/15
Sam how tall would you guess Philippe Asselin, a one off actor from Au Hasard Balthazar? He looked 6'3" or 6'4" to me. Stood out a mile compared to François Lafarge who was surely nothing over average.
Julian said on 7/Jan/15
I think he was 176cm. in his prime years. In my oppinion Delon was jus a little bit taller then him.
Sam said on 6/Jan/15
I'd agree, but a likeable kind of seedy.
Arch Stanton said on 6/Jan/15
Something a bit seedy about him I always thought!
Sam said on 6/Jan/15
Delon had kind of pretty looks. I'd say Belmondo has an ugly-handsome kind of looks, along the lines of Javier Bardem and (his on-screen hero) Bogart.
littlesue said on 5/Jan/15
I'd say this was about right, not the best looking of blokes, funny mouth on him, Delon much better looking!!
Sam said on 5/Jan/15
Actually, on even footing, I think Belmondo edges out Delon. Click Here
Arch Stanton said on 4/Jan/15
Looks better now than he did back then IMO.
Arch Stanton said on 4/Jan/15
Rob can you squeeze in Two Women, Mississippi Mermaid, Is Paris Burning? and Cartouche?
Gonzalo said on 3/Jan/15
He was shorter than Delon. Are you sure he was that height?
Sam said on 2/Jan/15
Thanks!! This is what he looked at peak. Now in old age, he can look maybe 5'8"-5'9" range. 5'9" & 6'0" are too little & too much, that's seems fairly certain.
