For some reason or other, John looks as though he's just seen a ghost! Perhaps this is a scene from one of his films; I noticed that he starred in both a Dracula and a Frankenstein film. Say no more....🤯

Four of John's five sons became actors. Their names are as follows: David, Keith, Robert, Bruce and Christopher.

6ft 😄👌

RIP John 🕯️💐

Carradine was never any taller than 5'11".

Per the Warren Baxter page, Knowitall thought Carradine was 5'11" in his youth. However, I don't think under six feet fits Carradine next to Henry Fonda though in Grapes of Wrath, he really looks an inch or bit less different. I bet young Carradine and Benedict Cumberbatch would be very similar height and proportions standing next to each other.

Yeah, no way he was 178 cm peak. This is the photo I found, he does look 178 cm there but he lost a lost a good deal of height, I think even by the 1950s Carradine was starting to show a curved spine.

He was very thin so he gave the impression of being taller than what he really was. Frank2 aka Knowitall said he was shorter than 1`83. He even said Carradine was 1`78. I think anything under 1´80 for Carradine doesn´t make sense.
There are pics of him next to his son Keith who was at least 1`85 and he doesn´t look much shorter. And he looks old in those pics so he had probably lost some height by then

Yeah, thanks! Like I said on the request page, this is a guy due to his long neck and build suggests a taller guy, you could see he's shorter by around an inch than Henry Fonda & Bela Lugosi and a couple under Lon Chaney Jr.

I think Fonda was a bit taller in Grapes of Wrath MTBlack.

Very nice addition.
