Pulled off a tall looking 6ft2 in For Your Eyes Only and that episode of The Saint...visibly taller than Roger Moore in both instances, enough to pass for 189cm

Looked to be a solid 6'2 in Indiana Jones and FYEO, maybe a flat 6'2, but 6'2 none the less.
Sinclair said on 26/Oct/20
Glover was certainly nothing under 6’2”, in his prime. In fact, I’d vote 6’2.25” for Glover’s peak height and if he had claimed 6’2.5”, I would have believed it. Glover does seem at least one taller than Roger Moore in For Your Eyes Only and an episode of The Saint.
OriginalAnon said on 21/Sep/20
More chance over slightly over 6'2'' than under during his prime I would've thought.

This looks a fairly recent picture of Julian, Rob, but I have seen it before. He's been in some great stuff, and I barely watch Bond!
Peak - 6ft2
Now - 6ft
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Sep/19
Thanks Rory...no real difference between then and FYEO
said on 15/Aug/19
If you want to see how a peak Glover compared to a peak Moore, watch from 16.22 onwards.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Aug/19
It turns out he also appeared in an episode of The Saint. It’d be interesting to see how he looked next to Moore then. Oddly enough Shirley Eatin from Goldfinger (gold painted woman) is also in it!
Jug said on 19/Jan/19
He could have been close to 6'3 at peak and downgraded himself on his CV in order to get more roles, which is what a lot of character actors do. He was clearly taller than both Ford and Connery in Indiana Jones and at least an inch taller than Roger Moore in For Your Eyes Only.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Jun/18
Good analysis, Berta. I think they were close at peak l but like you said different frames. Glover was rangy while Connery was broad and muscular. I still think Sean might have had the edge peak
Both no less than 188cm peak
berta said on 10/Apr/18
skinny guy that could look very legit 188 up to 189 but he was probably as the listing 188 flat. BUT remeber he had 4 cm on ford easy in the scene in the beginning. so there is pretty high evidence of max 184 ford.Also sean connery didnt look in the 187-188 range in the movie so he was probably never taller than 188. Connery could look close to 189 when he was younger but have pretty good muscle development even at old age and big bones so i dont think he really had lost any height at 59. its a good movies to judge height from.

Jordan87 I agree, Julian Glover really is an underrated actor. He was great in Empire strikes back and last crusade. It’s a shame he never became a household name in Hollywood.
The Film Fan said on 4/Mar/18
He looked noticeably taller than both Harrison Ford and Sean Connery in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. I would have thought he was 6’ 4.”
Jordan87 said on 22/Feb/18
For whatever reason with the very small amount of Screen time this guy had im Empire Strikes back, I remembered him well. I think he pretty much was robotic and down to the point in the role as General Veers. Came off as Very Calculating and Cold. I liked him in other roles as well underrated actor.
AS Far as his height, lets see he only looks 5'11.5 with Rob , no more. He was also 75 years old at the time of this picture, so he was likely around a good 1" to 1-1/2" taller in his prime which would mean he was around 6'1 in his prime, but I will admit he looked taller than this usually. Maybe he shrunk more than most men, but he certainly is not over 5'11.5 with Rob.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Nov/17
I'll admit he did look 189-190cm w/h Roger Moore but next Connery I felt he got edged...
JJAK said on 22/Oct/17
Yep he was still 6 2 even into the late 90s did appear even bigger when younger.
Good actor too unmistakable always has a powerful presence no matter how big a role.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Sep/17
He looked 2in taller than Moore in some scenes but then barely taller in others
berta said on 31/Aug/17
he have probably lost a little more height since this. if he was 183 back then ( i personally think he could have been 184 when measured) then he is probably down to 182 today. At his peak he cant have been shorter than 188 beside harrison ford 184. It was maybe 4-4,5 cm beetween them if i remember right.i think this guy could have been 188-188,5 and ford as i said before was about 183,7-184
Jug said on 8/Aug/17
He actually looked taller than Connery in Indiana Jones. He also looked taller than Moore in For Your Eyes Only and in an episode of The Saint. He was not much shorter than Darth Vader in The Empire Strikes Back. I would say his peak was closer to 6'2.5, possibly even 6'3. Sometimes character actors downplay their height in order to get jobs with leading men so he could have rounded down on his CV.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Aug/17
I think Connery edged him out
World Citizen said on 30/May/17
Richardspain said on 22/Apr/17
Great actor in villain roles. In my opinion he was taller than Ford at movie Indy III. Yo can see this when Indy and Walter Donovan( caracter of Julian) drink champagne together.
Glover was 187- 188cm in the last crusade, is possible..
Harrison 183cm maybe
Connery around 187cm .
Not more not less
Now, Glover is a old man, he lost height, I think he is 181-183cm today.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Feb/17
Still think Connery had the edge over him
berta said on 5/Jan/17
peak with roger moore and harrison ford he looked about 189 and now looks 183 but i think he can measure taller
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jul/16
I must say, 6ft2½ looked believable at times.
Peter 179cm said on 28/Jun/16
About 182cm/Strong 5'11.5 guy.Not quite 4 inches difference...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Jun/16
I do think he was a decent 6ft2 in his prime actually.
Arch Stanton said on 1/Apr/16
Yes, in the 70s his body frame could certainly give the illusion of 6'3-6'4 at times.
said on 30/Mar/16Click Here
He looks like a towering 6ft4-5 guy in this picture! Those two guys must be well under average.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Mar/16
I watched Last Crusade and I actually thought Connery (whose slightly older) edged him out.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/May/15
He's lost a lot of height.
Mid190s said on 5/Apr/15
After what this guy did to Indiana jones, skywalker, Dr Who and Bond Id be a tad wary of his motives. I know its just movies but subconsciously...wouldnt put anything past him!
Arch Stanton said on 2/Feb/15
In the 70s this guy could really look a weak 6'3" at times, agreed with Rampage.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Jan/15
Looked a leggy 6ft2-3 guy back in the day
said on 25/Oct/14
Rob, who do you think was taller peak, Julian Glover or Sean Connery?
I haven't seen Glover in 60's/70's as much as, but he could pass for a solid 6ft 2...I don't know if there'd be really much between them at their peak heights.
Judd said on 6/Oct/14
no doubt he's a real 6'0" with rob, perhaps witha good posture he could brush 6'0.25"...however i'm a bit skeptical about his "primitive height"...
loosing 2" is a very large amount and Julian doesn't seems to me the person who had serial back problems...i think he was between 6'1"-6'2", like 6'1.25" or 6'1.5" on a good day.
Oanh said on 5/Aug/14
He looks 6'0 and not a millimeter more.
Sam said on 9/Jun/14
He definitely looked near 2 inches over Ford in the Last Crusade.
Arch Stanton said on 8/Jun/14
He's lost loads of height. If you see him in films of the 70s and 80s he really looked a strong 6'2" weak 6'3" guy. Looked a weak 6'3" in Juggernaut.
Crypto139 said on 13/May/14
A perfect example of what a legit 6 footer is. This is it!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Jan/14
@Arch: Yeah, I thought 188-189cm at least with Ford but once Connery came into the picture my impression swiftly shifted toward 186-187cm range. Remember, the guy was well into his 50s by that point.
His height is a mystery. In For Your Eyes Only he could appear up to 2in taller than Roger Moore in some scenes and in others, not a hair taller. But I will say that in The Empire Strikes Back he looked near 6ft3 if David Prowse was 6ft6.
Arch Stanton said on 1/Jan/14
He actually looks a weak 6'3" next to Harrison Ford in the Last Crusade.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Nov/13
187.5cm - 188cm (6ft1.75in - 6ft2in) at his peak. He wore lifts in For Your Eyes Only to look more imposing as a Bond villian, I suspect. Same with The Last Crusade. He probably was never that much taller than Roger Moore and Harrison Ford.
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 31/Oct/13
6'0 possible. At worst 5'11.5
Matt 184.7-186.7cm said on 22/Oct/13
between 5ft 11.5 and 6ft 0
Jim said on 10/Oct/13
He doesn't look 6 foot here. 6 foot is very generous. Rob is about half inch above this guy's eyebrows. He is perhaps 5'11.25
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jul/13
Yeah he was the villian. He actually looked 6ft3 in that movie
said on 25/Jun/13
Julian Glover barely looks the six foot mark next to Ian Whyte and Kristian Nairn here.
Rob, how tall do you estimate Nairn is Rob?
he's down as 6ft 11 on agency, he might be a 6ft 10 guy though
Connor 184cm said on 21/Jun/13
Yeah he does look 6 foot on this picture with rob id say dead on 183.0cm rob was julian in that james bond film for your eyes only?
VEE12 said on 1/Jun/13
I know movies are deceiving with the use of lifts and all, but in star wars ep. 5 he stood next to vader (whose character and actor are both 6'8) and wasn't much shorter. I know for sure that the character maxamilian veers (played by glover) was 6'4...
LG69 said on 29/May/13
Solid 6 feet.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Mar/13
Looked 6ft3 in For Your Eyes Only
Henrik said on 30/Dec/12
Connery looked to be edging him just a little bit (a hair) in The Last Crusade, if memory serves me right. Thin build and elegant posture probably made him give off a taller impression.
Trent said on 29/Dec/12
Tom Selleck claimed 6'3.5 actually. So maybe this guy was 6'1.5 in prime.
Martyr said on 2/Nov/12
Looked 2 inches shorter than a peak height Tom Selleck in an episode of Magnum. So a legit 6'2 in his prime, though I thought he looked close to 6'3 in For Your Eyes Only...
logan noll 1996 said on 28/Sep/12
He looked to be 6'4ish when I seen him in Indiana Jones 3.
Danimal said on 10/Aug/12
You can see the standard height loss in the upper spine/neck area. When the head naturally starts tilting forward, there is a curve/hunch, which is height loss. If he was able to straighten that upper spine/neck out, he would easily regain over an inch in height. Same thing has happened to George Romero.
Hob said on 6/Aug/12
he only look 181cm here.
Brad said on 25/Jul/12
He looked Eye level with David Prowse in the Empire Strikes Back, he must've been 6'2-3" in his prime to do that!
nice guy said on 30/Jan/12
hmm looks 5'11.5 ..guess his peak was 6'1 nothing more
maio said on 28/Dec/11
today he's a legit 6 ft 0 in/183 cm, but i think at his peak he was max 6 ft 1.75 in/187 cm.
ChiasmataX said on 22/Nov/11
Finally a legit 183cm guy listed like he's supposed to be listed (according to pic) He's about as tall as some of the guys who are listed 6 feet 1 and 6 feet 2 on here.
thebad7 said on 5/Nov/11
@Henrik: I agree with you. This guy was close to 6'2", but not quite. I remember him well from LAST CRUSADE, and you're right: Connery was taller than he was.
USYD said on 3/Oct/11
A true 6'0". Maybe 5'11.85" lol, who can tell the difference?
Shaun said on 14/Sep/11
Yeah the scene in For Your Eyes only where he stands up to shake Moore's hand and ignores Ferrara by his proportions definitely looked close to 6'3", Just his legs and torso screamed 6'3". Maybe 6'2" peak then but he could look close close to 6'3".
Henrik said on 9/Sep/11
6'1.5" or 6'2" at his peak sounds correct. I think he looked slightly shorter than Connery in The Last Crusade. As for people commenting that he looked close to 6'3" or even 6'4", I think it was because of his posture and slim frame. I think he had the best posture you can possibly get during his prime years.
jake said on 17/Aug/11
Glover was near 6ft2 in Last Crusade, Ford was never more than 6ft0.5 at peak.
big d said on 28/Jul/11
He's slouching with rob, as is the tendency when standing next to someone smaller than yourself
dmeyer said on 14/Jun/11
if he was 188cm then he lost 5-6cm
James said on 8/Jun/11
182cm with rob
jeremy said on 29/May/11
doesn't look 6ft.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/May/11
He was indeed 6ft2 in his prime and did a fine job appearing close to 6ft3 with Roger Moore in For Your Eyes Only.
d wade said on 22/May/11
nearly as tall he looks 5 inches shorter than vader i think david prowse is 6,8 in the vader costum so he is 6,3 in footwear and 6,2 barefoot.
said on 20/May/11
he was also nearly as tall as vader in empire, he is nearly 80 years old remember, 50secs Click Here
me and julian from last month, i thought robs listing for him today was correct Click Here
James said on 18/May/11
Shaun says on 16/May/11
Weird but this guy looked a legit 6'3" in For Your Eyes Only.
He also edged out Sean Connery in the Last Crusade.

Physics Enemy said on 9/May/11
He's slouching here and still doing alright. Could be 6' 1" really. 1 inch height loss sounds more pheasible than 2". That's the thing with tall celebrities; they slouch in pics with shorter guys (well Rob is low-average really, not short. Glenn was short for sure.)
said on 1/May/11
Rob what was he like in person?
I didn't get much chance to speak to him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Apr/11
182cm with the slouch. 184/185cm upstraight
Vegas said on 24/Apr/11
met julian last week, robs got him about right, he ain't 186cm these days thats for sure
James said on 24/Apr/11
Actually he looks 5'11.25 (181cm) compared to rob.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Apr/11
He looks roughly 6"0 in this picture with a slouch...if he stood more erect he'd probably look 185cm or 186cm
Johan Cruyff said on 5/Apr/11
I think is necessary to do a reasoning of this kind:
In the Last Crusade is clearly Glover was about 1.5 in (3,8-4 cm) taller than Harrison Ford. You can see the diffrence when they speak inside Petra, at the end, before he shoots to Henry Jones Sr...So If Ford (in the 1989 he was 47) was 1.84-1.85 m out of bed and during the scene 1.82-1.83 m, here he was 1.86 m. So, according with Rob, his peak height when he was young, out of bed, was 6'2" (1.88 m)! Now he's clearly around 6' (1.83 m). Rob's diagnosis is fine for me!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Apr/11
James said on 26/Feb/11
6ft 1/2 (184cm) with rob
Anonymous said on 8/Feb/11
Also Glover looked much taller than Connery in that movie.
Anonymous said on 8/Feb/11
Wow I thought Harrison Ford was 6'1 1/2 and he was 6'4. That's the impression I got from watching Indiana Jones.
James said on 3/Feb/11
yes he defenintly looks a 6ft guy with rob
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Jan/11
James said on 24/Jan/11
this guy has been losing height for decades.
6'1.5 in 1991 and 5'11.75 now in 2010. he was probably a legit 6'2 in his 20's though.
Matt said on 26/Nov/10
looks 5ft 11.5in
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Nov/10
Looked 186cm-187cm beside Harrison Ford
Anonymous said on 12/Apr/09
Glover wore lifts in The Last Crusade to appear taller than Connery. Seeming he palyed the bad guy Spielberg or however directed the film probably thought that in order to make Glovers character appear more imposing he wear lifts. But in reality Glover and Connery are quite similiar in height. But Connery I think is the taller of the two by about 1cm. both men have lost barely any height. Both tall, well-built guys undoubtedly but Connery is taller. I'd say Connery is 6ft2(6ft2.5 prime) and Glover 6ft1.5 (6ft2 prime). Rob that's my opinion.
Anonymous said on 6/Mar/09
I would give him more than 6ft 2in.
\-_-_-(Hugh)-_-_-/ said on 13/Feb/09
okay I'll look up the picture if you look up the google picture of Connery and Glover where Connery claerly has an edge on him of about an inch.
Doug said on 10/Feb/09
Hugh, did you check out the photo I mentioned below? He looked a good 6'3" standing next to Moore in my book. 6'2.5" peak could be possible but one things for certain he was noticeably taller than Moore who was 6'1.5" and claimed 6'2". Please check out that For Your Eyes ONly image I mentioned. Perhaps Glover was standing on higher ground after all?
Hugh said on 9/Feb/09
Glover was and still is a tall man without a doubt but 6ft3.5 is very extreme. I personally think he was 6ft2.25 in his prime and say 6ft1.75 now.
Hugh said on 9/Feb/09
Well it was 1996 when I met Glover, so he probably lost a little height by that time. I refuse to beleive that he was taller than Sean Connery.
Doug said on 9/Feb/09
Glover was looking at least two inches taller than Moore in some scenes. Perhaps he was standing on higher ground which I doubt but google image search Glover and Moore the seventhart files and you'll see the difference. Could somebody show me how to use tinyurl I don't know how to provide the direct link!!
Doug said on 9/Feb/09
OK perhaps not, but I thought he still looked 6'3" peak. I saw more of a difference betwene him and Moore than that, watch the scene where they first meet at the ice rink, Glover looked a full 6'3" in my view and has done in quite a lot of his older films. But if you;ve met the guy and tell me he isn't I believe you.
Hugh said on 8/Feb/09
6ft3.5?! Hardly. I'm almost 6ft3 myself and I had this man by about one inch. I've also met Connery briefly and he was closer to my height. They must have done something with the camera angles in The Last Crusade to make Glover's character more imposing. In Reality Connery is taller than Glover. In For Your Eyes only Glover looked 0.5-1 inch taller than Moore. He might've been a little more than 6ft2 in his prime but certainly not 6ft3 or 6ft3.5! Glover is 6ft1.5-6ft2 max today and Connery is 6ft2 max today.
adam said on 8/Feb/09
Well, I agree somehow with Doug. I think Glover was more 6-3 peak. He looked pretty tall in QUATERMASS AND THE PIT. He towered over Andrew Keir who was around six feet himself.
Doug said on 6/Feb/09
Julian Glover was taller than even Connery at peak. I am convinced he was 6'3" -Glover was taller than COnnery, Moore and Robert Davi all who were between 6'1.5" and 6'2.5" and people still think Glover was not 6'3" peak?
Doug said on 6/Feb/09
Julian Glover I thought was a very tall man at peak, a strong 6'3" possibly 6.3.5". He had two inches on Roger Moore I remember in For Your Eyes Only, he was noticeably taller than Moore!!. This may be his current height but I feel he looked every inch of 6'3" at peak.
Hugh said on 9/Jan/09
Rob this deserves a slight downgrade. 187cm I think fits him more.
Hugh said on 7/Jan/09
Certainly not the 6ft3 that some people see him at.
Hugh said on 20/Nov/08
They definately did something with the camera angles in the Last Crusade because I refuse to beleive that Glover was taller than Connery. I met both men and COnnery was closer to my height (6ft2.75).
Hugh said on 10/Nov/08
Glover looked barely taller than Roger Moore in For your Eyes Only.
Hugh said on 10/Nov/08
They definately did something with the camera angles in the Last Crusade to make Glover appear taller than Connery. I'd say it's the either way around.
Hugh said on 20/Sep/08
Ray, camera angles can be deceiving. Having met Connery and Glover I don't agree with those estimates. Harrison Ford should be 5ft11.75. He practicly is 6ft these days. Glover is 6ft1.25 and Connery is 6ft1.75 as of today. When I met Connery he was only half an inch shorter than me. I'm 6ft2.75. Glover didn't even look 6ft2 when I met him.
Ray said on 10/Sep/08
I actually think its more accurate to estimate someone's height from seeing a number of photos and videos of them. If you're standing next to someone trying to gauge their height its not possible to be accurate to within 0.5 - 1 inch. As for Glover, he was visibly taller than Connery in The Last Crusade and had about 2 or so inches on Ford. My height estimates for them in this film (not peak heights) is Glover 6'1.5 - 2", Connery 6'1" and Ford 5'11.5"
Hugh said on 10/Sep/08
More 186-187cm now.
Hugh said on 31/May/08
This guy is 6ft2 tops.
Halb said on 19/May/08
Glover walks around Connery at the end of the film in Patra, and is visibly taller.
Halb said on 19/May/08
Glover looks taller in the last scene in last Crusade
Hugh said on 6/May/08
Glover is a tall guy. no doubt about that. But I stick to my claim. Connery is a smidge taller.
Hugh said on 16/Apr/08
Ed, you might be right on Ford. But I think Connery is slightly taller then Glover. Glover might be 6ft2 but Connery I am certain is 6ft2 if not more.
Ed(1) said on 15/Apr/08
So you met Glover when he was 61 and Connery when he was 68, both ages in which they most likely would have lost a bit of height. If Connery was around 6ft2 in 1998, he would have been easily this in 1989, and the same for Glover! I'll take your word for it that Connery and Glover were 6ft2.25 and 6ft1.75 respectively, basing it off of your daytime height of approx. 6ft2.75.
Ford I still say was no more than 6ft in Last Crusade, and in my opinion more like 5ft11.75 with about an inch or so for his Indy boots. So 6ft0.75 in the film for him, Connery 6ft2.75 in his flatter soled dress shoes, and Glover 6ft2.5-6ft2.75 in his dress shoes and desert boots.
I still think Connery looked shorter in scenes with Glover by about an inch though, so I don't know what to make of that?
Hugh said on 15/Apr/08
I met Glover in 1996 and I met Connery in 1998. Ford I saw from a distance in 1994.
Ed(1) said on 14/Apr/08
Hugh, I'm curious when did you meet them?
As for Glover, if you saw him at only 6ft1.5-6ft2 tops, there's no way Ford was near 6ft2 in his youth or 6ft1 for that matter, when he stood a good 2-3 inches shorter than Glover in Last Crusade. If Glover was 6ft1.5, Ford would've been 5ft10.5-5ft11.5 in LC. Or if Glover was 6ft2, Ford would've been 5ft11-6ft.
Once again this reinforces to me that Ford was most likely around 6ft, maybe a bit more in his youth, and now in the 5ft11 plus range.
Hugh said on 14/Apr/08
It's funny you asked. I'm 6ft3 out of bed 6ft2.5 by night. Glover was an inch shorter than me. Connery was about half an inch shorter. Connery was definately more than 6ft2 at his peak. Ford I think may have been around 6ft1-6ft2 back in the day. As for Glover, 6ft2 tops.
Ed(1) said on 14/Apr/08
How tall are you Hugh?
I didn't realize you met them, and yes my observations are only from watching the films. My sister met Ford back in the early 90's, and she said he was around my height, and I'm 5ft11.75 straight out of bed. I still can't see Ford at much more than 6ft-6ft0.5 tops in his youth, and around 5ft11-5ft11.5 now. There's been tons of 5ft11-6ft sightings of Ford, maybe more than the 6ft1 ones.
In my opinion Ford easily looked 1.5 inches shorter than Connery in Last Crusade, and I strongly doubt Connery was a full 6ft2.5 then at 59. I still think he was 6ft2 tops in his youth, and by LC no more than 6ft1.25.
Hugh said on 11/Apr/08
Ed, I've seen both men in person. Glover looked 6ft2ish in Notting Hill and Connery looked 6ft2.5 in Los Angelos. Second of all you have probably never seen them. I have met them in the flesh.
Ed said on 9/Apr/08
I too just watched the film a few weeks back for the 100th time, and all my observations were the same!
Hugh, first of all watch the film again and freeze frame the scene when Indy swings into the room at the Austrian castle where his dad is being held, and then the Nazis burst in a minute later. Both Ford and Connery stand side by side, and it's very clearly seen that Ford is at a minimum 1.5 inches shorter than Connery.
Now watch the scene when Indy is brought to meet Donovan, and Glover and Ford square off, with Glover looking a good 2-3 inches taller.
Lastly watch the scenes in the Austrian castle where Ford and Connery are brought before Glover, as well as at the very end scene in the temple when Donovan shoots Henry Sr.. Glover is taller than Connery by a good 1-1.5 inches in both these scenes.
I still say Ford was no more than 5ft11.5, Connery 6ft1, and Glover 6ft2 maybe a tad bit more. Of course you could also say Ford was 6ft, Connery 6ft1.5, and Glover 6ft3. Take your pick!

Watched the film again last night and I stand by my claim. Connery 6ft2 and Glover 6ft1.75.

I think you may need to refresh your memory and watch the film again. He towered Ford and had Connery by at least an inch....saw the film last week.

Ray, Connery in his youth was no less than 6ft2. Glover and Connery are the same height. Connery in my opinion was 6ft2.75 (190cm) in his youth. Sure he might have lost a bit of height by that time. In fact now that I think of it, I vaguely remember Connery and Glover standing right beside each other and Connery looking marginally taller.

I have to agree with Ed. Connery was definately shorter than Glover by more than an inch. Ford, in some scenes looked about an inch shorter and then near the end about 3 inches shorter. I think Ford is about 5'11 - 6'. Connery looked about 6'1". He was in his late 50's then so it''s qute possibly he had lost a cm from 6'1.5" in his youth....which sounds abot right.

Glover is tall. 6ft2. but so is Connery.

Glover is definately not taller than Sean Connery. Both men are 6ft2. Ford is 6ft1 or a hair over. Connery I think was pushing 6ft3 at his peak.

Empire Strikes back was on last week, and I was surprised how close to Vader Glover really was, not much shorter.

Glover is taller than this I think. More like 6'3". He is also in Empire Strikes Back and has scenes with Darth Vader and is not looking up much to see him eye to eye. I believe David Prowse is 6'5" or 6'6"

Well something is up here because after watching Last Crusade again recently Glover has between 2-3 inches on Ford easy, and a good 1.5 on Connery. I paused and rewatched the scene from the pic above and several other scenes as well with just Connery and Ford, and if he is 6ft2 Ford would be between 5ft11-6ft to his 6ft2 and Connery 6ft0.5-6ft1.5. The problem here lies in the consistent claim of Ford being 6ft1 and Connery near 6ft2, this doesn't work if Glover is 6ft2 as well.

Rob I don't know about that pic, could be a strange angle. I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure in the movie during the scene where Indy is brought to meet Glover's character(Donovan), he looks at least 2 plus inches taller than Ford, maybe more. I was always under the impression he was close to 6ft3, again I could be wrong, I need to watch Last Crusade again, it's been a while.
