Hey Rob,

Can you please add his son, Ronald Howard? Was in the hit Sherlock Holmes TV adaptation and a bunch of noteworthy films too. He gets listed as 6ft and often looks close...

What do you think?
Editor Rob
I remember seeing him recently in an old Robin Hood episode and near 6ft looks reasonable for him.

Can't believe it was nearly 3 years ago this was added,for a long time there wans't a page on here! Seems about right, I'd have guessed 5'10 range and 150 pounds.
Editor Rob
a lot of the time it is easy to forget some names that have been added, I certainly have a good idea of them, but a percentage I will have forgotten, especially with nearly 10,000 entries now.

Didn´t look over 1`78 to me.

Still wonder how Vivien Leigh was so crazy about him in Gone with the wind. Specially since she had Clark Gable. Well, I guess she just got the craving. NAughty girl.

I would have said this was right, always looked a tallish guy back in the day, thought he was a bit wooden as an actor though

Nice one! There you go, exactly what I guessed and you found a quote which said it!!
