“What’s a diddler?” asked Kenneth Williams to the crone!

She tells him, and then he says to his friend, “Well, we can hardly have a diddler identity parade!” 😂😂😂

5ft6. 😄👍

Not sure he looked 4 or so inches taller than Kenneth Connor more like 2-3 inches

Nice one, it makes sense with Sid James and Hattie Jacques too. 169 looks spot on.

@Rob, I've seen most of the films in the series now and poeple are right, Hawtrey did mostly edge out Williams. Any chance you can tweak Kenneth to 5'6.75?
Editor Rob
it's probably a reasonable figure, Hawtrey did have a slightly smaller head size from what I remember, I stopped in the middle of the series a few years ago.

guys like Williams and Hawtrey could be argued anywhere in 5ft 6.5-7 range
Arch Stanton said on 23/Apr/17
There's still a chance of 5'6.5 too, he looked that with Cribbins too, 5'6.75 I'll go with anyway.

Rob, a full 5'7 seems a tad high. Looking with Sid James in Carry On Cleo there seems a wee bit more than an inch between them, see what you think at 53:55 Click Here (delete the pop ups). Maybe around G height is accurate. He made Jim Dale look 5 ft 10 range in Again and I'm not sure he really was that. I'll give him 5'6.75.

About two inches shorter than Bernard Cribbins who is 5 ft 8 range. 5'7 seems a tad generous.

He became typecast in comedy. His screen persona was highly unpopular in later years as it was a negative stereotype.

There was a girl in my class at school who was Kenneth's 2nd cousin, but she was TALL for her age! Then there was another Williams girl, her little sister, who was on the small side and really was a dead ringer for her famous 2nd cousin, only with long, blonde hair!
It comes as no surprise to me that Kenneth was 5ft7. I would have even estimated him to be half an inch smaller.
He was well suited for all his comedy roles with that unusual voice of his. In fact, I don't remember ever seeing him in anything else!

In his published diaries there is a picture of his passport stating 5ft 7in

Always one of my favourite Carry on actors. In Carry On he appeared a bit shorter than Sid James so he may well be 5 feet 7.
