Early morning he probably hit 6ft5

I think he was taller than 6'4''. Looked really lanky. In the films he did with Wayne they both looked the same height more or less but I suspect Wayne may have had some help footwear wise. Wayne always wanted to be the biggest guy on the screen.

6ft5 looked believable at times.
Arch Stanton said on 21/May/16
I mean I don't think he was 6'5 flat but at times could look close to it. Overall I think in between 6'4 and 6'5 is the best shout.
Editor Rob: he could look a very tall guy in that era
Arch Stanton said on 21/May/16
Rob, see 5-6 minutes of Click Here Can you see why we think he could look 6 ft 5? Looked taller than 6'4 flat I think, but slim build could account for him seeming a bit taller. Difficult to see him under 194, very tall.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Jul/15
In height and build.
194cm is definitely a safe bet.
Arch Stanton said on 16/Jul/15
Thanks, that looks better now. He didn't look 195-196cm range with Heston but a 5cm difference at 194cm seems bang on, and fits better with Cary Grant and others. A guy with his lanky frame could look 6'5 at times, but I think you could see with Heston he was 6'4" range and not taller.
Arch Stanton said on 15/Jul/15
Rob, do you think you could tweak slightly to 6'4.25 (194cm)? I think that would fit better. I got a good look at him with Charlton Heston in Major Dundee and near 2 inches on him, I think Heston at 6'2.5 and Hutton at 6'4.25 would fit best. He really looked a legit 194cm chap.
[Editor Rob: 4.25 is probably fair]
Arch Stanton said on 27/Jun/15
Me neither. Looks more like Mike Pratt than Vince Vaughn!

Cant see a resemblance between him and vince
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Jun/15
He reminds of a young Vince Vaughn.
Nearer 6ft5 than 6ft4, IMO.
Sam said on 16/Jun/15
Yeah, again, 194 cm is the lowest I can see, the guy too often looks a bit over the 6'4" mark.
Arch Stanton said on 15/Jun/15
Well put it this way, I think he's the tallest looking flat 6'4" guy I can think of on the site! He just really looked too darn lanky to me, for me 194 is the lowest I can really see.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Jun/15
194-195cm range is more feasible.

Jim was 6' 5". In "Period of Adjustment" he was four inches taller than 6' 1" Tony Franciosa, in "Hellfighters" and "The Green Berets" (his films with John Wayne) he was two inches taller than 6' 3" Edward Faulkner, and in TV's "Ellery Queen" he was an inch taller than 6' 4" Forrest Tucker who appeared in one episode. There are many other examples, and yes, Paula Prentiss was at least 5' 9.5".

There are no pictures w/h his son though...
Sam said on 12/Jun/15
Maybe 6'4.25" if you're not willing to go to 6'4.5", Rob? I could see Hutton as having been the same as someone like Alexander Skarsgard.

Timothy Hutton´s father. I thought I read 1`96 for him
Arch Stanton said on 12/Jun/15
Well, I did observe that in Hellfighters he only edged out Wayne, they could look similar in a lot scenes. Well watch Walk Don't Run anyway, I really though he looked in 6'4.5-6'5 range in that film, just by the impression he gave. Perhaps his lanky build made him look taller but in the jetty scene in particular I thought he was a clear as daylight 6'5".
Arch Stanton said on 11/Jun/15
Rob maybe 6'4.5 might be fair, he definitely edged out John Wayne. I think he cold really look 6'5 with Grant though. There's one scene where they got on a boat and walking down the jetty he really looks it.
[Editor Rob: I watched some scenes with him and prentiss and I'm not sure he really looked over 6ft 4 with her, although if you argue she was more 5ft 9.5 then maybe over 6ft 4 is possible]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Jun/15
Rob, maybe somewhere between 6ft4-5?

He was listed mainly at the latter in most places.
Sam said on 11/Jun/15
I thought this guy was in the 6'5" range for sure.
This book states "he was 6'5" to her 5'10"".

However, this book describes him as "an unpolish bean pole (6'3")".

Couldn't find a good still but he looked 2 inches taller I think than Charlton Heston in Major Dundee.
Standing here with John Wayne (albeit an older Wayne) Hutton looks an easy inch taller but could have a slight terrain advantage.

Looks more even with Wayne here.

Maybe 6'4.5"?
Arch Stanton said on 11/Jun/15
Thanks Rob but there's no way he was just 6 ft 4. Watch Walk Don't Run!!
[Editor Rob: it was Grant at age 61 or so, I would be surprised if he was as tall as his younger years. ]
