Noticeably shorter than William Holden in 'Damien Omen II' by about an inch, I am happy to go with 5ft9.5! Not that either actor will have been his peak height in 1978, but I still noticed a marked difference of three-quarters quarters of an inch to an inch.

What a nasty way to go - disappearing under the ice....

Peak height 5ft9.5.

I just found him chalked up as 175cm! He was in Stephen King's 'Salem's Lot' and I am now watching him in 'Damien Omen II', so I'll get back on this one...

Lew with his lovely wife, Ginger Rogers, pretty good example of a 5'9.5" guy I think.

Rob did you watch him in a film recently or something? I think I requested him a while back, can you also add Johnny Belinda, Holiday, The Unfaithful, The Dark Mirror, The Capture, Donovan's Brain, The Carpetbaggers and The Man?
[Editor Rob: I had a moment to look at him when sam reminded me.]

Could you also add to his credits?: State Fair, Holiday, Rich Man, Poor Man, Johnny Belinda and Advise & Consent.

Thanks for adding, Rob! Pretty accurate listing IMO, he looked 4-4.5 inches taller than Jimmy Cagney, 3-3.5 inches under Cary Grant.
