The way his daughter described him, you'd have thought he were 5'6" or something.

23 cm taller than Barbara Eden barefoot in Jeannie tv series.

162 cm Barbara Eden + 23 cm = Larry Hagman 185 cm - 2 cm Dress Shoes:

Rob, could he have been 6ft1 in his prime?
Editor Rob
at times he could look it, but then was he always just in normal shoes or maybe at times with cowboy heel could pull of that range.

@Mark: We are in agreement on William Smith. I just saw a screen shot of William Smith and Larry Hagman standing nose-to-nose from an episode of I Dream of Jeannie, and they looked about equal in height. I know Smith gets labeled as being 6'2", but I always thought (based on comparisons with other actors) that he was more like 6'1". Larry Hagman was no taller than Smith.

"Larry Hagman height: 6ft 0.75in (185cm)"

And Patrick Duffy a shade over 6ft2 in the early Dallas years

Yeah definitely a strong 6'0

Shorter than Garner on an episode of The Rockford Files by, I would say, at least an inch and a half. And, he was generally a good 2 inches shorter than Duffy on the original Dallas. He was also shorter than William Smith (reportedly 6'2, but I say 6'1, based on many comparisons) from an ep of I Dream of Jeannie.I'd give him the 6.05 this site has him at, but no more.

This needs to be changed to 6"1"(185cm).

Larry Hagman was about 1'' shorter than Patrick Duffy who is 6'2'' So I would say that 6'1'' is a more accurate depiction of his height.

Looked a good 3 inches taller than Matt Baker on the One Shoe, Matt is about 5ft 10, could'nt see if Harry was wearing Cowboy Boots though

I could buy 6`1 for peak, but not now - either 183 or 184.

I went to his 70 birthday party in 2001 and he is difinitely is 6'1"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Apr/11
6"1(185cm) peak

Saw him on Desperate Housewives recently and he appeared closer to 5"11
Hugh said on 1/Dec/08
Maybe he was 6ft1 at his peak. I think he could look it if he stood straight with Glenn.
Hugh said on 6/Nov/08
Looks barely recognizable there. Looks 5ft11ish there with Glenn.
lrua said on 5/Jun/07
Always listed at 6'1" and he did look it back in his "I Dream of Jeanie" days, now looking 5'11".
Stiffelio said on 29/Apr/07
Nowadays he's no way over 6ft. He looks barely 3in taller than Glenn. My guess is 5ft 11in on a good day.
Derek said on 5/Dec/06
Larry is slouching a bit and Glenn is a tad closer to the camera. 6'1" peak and 6' today.
sleuth said on 2/Dec/06
Top of Glenn's head is above Hagman's eyes. Doesn't that mean 3"?
Frank2 said on 14/Apr/06
I always read that Hagman was 6'1". In the movie Fail Safe he was the same height as 6'1" Henry Fonda. But I'm sure these days he's lost acouple of inches. But he did gain a new liver!
Mr. R said on 9/May/05
Actually Rob, you got this one right. I was standing behind old JR at Carroll O'Connor's funeral, and he is pretty much what you have him listed!
Palladium said on 7/May/05
NO WAY is he 184... more like 179/180 (5'11"), it sound better, check him fairly and you see what I mean. ;-"Pallas"
