Archived link helps yup. Agreed he didn't look 6'1, had to have been a shoe measurement.

Actually I think mention The Last Hurrah instead of Brianstorm, a more notable one.

@Rob, can you add a photo and add films like The Searchers, King of Kings, A Kiss Before Dying, Princess of the Nile, Count Five and Die, The True Story of Jesse James, Hell to Eternity, Brainstorm and The Christmas Kid. On TV he is best remembered for playing Captain Christopher Pike in Star Trek.
Editor Rob: that old link I had was dead (which happens to most weblinks over time), but there is an archive copy of the file which I linked to.

Yep, he did look right around the six foot mark opposite Wayne in The Searchers.

He looked only an inch shorter than Ty Hardin in Custer... reckon he'd have been close to 6'1"...

Agreed, Arch. I think Hunter was 6ft, maybe 6ft 0.5in! The Searchers is just such a superb film, too.

Arch...I agree, and he looks even with Nimoy in "The Cage", and Nimoy wrote in his autobio that he is also 6'0".

John Wayne had 3-4 inches on him in the Searchers, About 6ft.

In the mid 1950's "A Kiss before Dying", Hunter is 3" shorter than 6'3" Howard Petrie, an inch shorter than 6'1" George Macready, and the same height as Robert Wagner who was just on 6' then. Hunter was a fine actor whose life was cut short by a tragic accident.

He wore 2-inch heeled boots in "The Cage", but Nimoy did the same.

He does appear a little taller than Leonard Nimoy in the pilot episode of star trek "the cage"..so 6ft1 doesn't seem impossible.

I just finished watching Hunter and Robert Wagner in "A Kiss Before Dying" (1956). The 5'11" Wagner looked at least 1/2" taller than Hunter.

[Editor Rob: ah yes, wagner has been described at 6ft in the past and might have been, but I'd forgotten about this hunter fella...for sure, also in the last hurray I think, at least the one he done with tracy he looked shorter]
