Rob, could Rossiter get an upgrade?

I just watched Oliver! and I would have guessed about 5’11” for him, had I never seen him before. He had several inches on 5’7” Harry Secombe. 5’9”-5’10” is a range Rossiter really could have been.

Rob, could Rossiter have 5’9”?
Editor Rob
I'm not sure about full 5ft 9

Rob, surely Rossiter was over 5’9”?

He gets 5’9.5” from me, he was only about an inch under 5’10.5” Dudley Sutton and was much taller than 5’8” Colin Blakely in The Pink Panther Strikes Again. He also easily edged out 5’8” Harry Secombe in Oliver! Rossiter never once looked under 5’9” to me. He even looked like he was closing in on my 5’10” at times.

I would never have guessed him that tall.

I once went to the pictures and I saw a film about a real life flatulist, played by Leonard Rossiter. It was at the time when you used to see a second film as part of the showing.

I didn't even think it was that funny because the farts weren't realistic and all sounded the same: fabricated!

Leonard gets 5ft9.25. 🤣💨
