I'd say more 5'9" to be fair. He was the shop steward in Carry on at Your Convenience, and did the most
atrocious London accent, it was truly awful. Shame on the producer really, they could have got a genuine Londoner,
like Michael Robbins, who would have been perfect. Dick van Dyke did a better job than this guy.

Haha, yes, it's a basic admission that many of the heights are faked if they have to resort to ACTUAL. For Kenneth I think 5'10.5 might be an honest shoe measurement though. At times Kenneth could really look a full 5'10, at other times look more 5'9 range, I think 5'9.75 overall is the best fit but there's a good chance of 5'9.5 as well. He was a little above average for his generation but could often not seem it in R+H and several of his films where he was often with tall -very tall actors.
It might be worth having an ITC Entertainment category, then you can lump together all of the actors from those cool series like Randall, The Saint, Danger Man and The Baron etc.

Thanks. Well there's no chance he was a legit 5'10.5 as Mike Pratt certainly wasnt anything over 6 ft, it was probably a shoe measurement If you google image them he generally looks a little over 2 inches shorter I think. I got a good look with Cope in numerous episodes with different people and in Carry On and this looks accurate. 5'9.5 is also very possible though as there's a chance Pratt dipped under 6' and 182 range.
Editor Rob: half the heights in spotlight were a bit dubious, although it is still amusing how in the early years there were some actors who had Height: 5 feet 5 (ACTUAL) beside it, as a kind of 'this is my bloody well real height!' remark.

I had a little feeling Kenneth was a fraction less! That means the guy who played Randall must have been quite a bit more, if I remember correctly!
Hopkirk was my favourite!
I've seen Kenneth turning up in many things over the years, for instance, crime dramas.
I'll go with 5ft9.75.
