Lionel seemed close to 6'1" in his 1940's era movies, and didn't seem to lose much height as he aged. Sometimes he seemed slightly taller than RJ Wagner (who was 6' in standard shoes - I've met him) back in the original "Hart to Hart" series. Lionel was in his late 80's when he did the "Hart to Hart" reunion movies, but he still looked tall - amazing!

I was a boy when he play " Le avventure di pinocchio"Click Here
I remember very well that he said in an interview to be 181 cm.

Who was taller? Not Hope: Click Here
Stander or Dimaggio? I know Dimaggio was 6'1". Stander was an even 6'.

Indeed he was taller at his peak--at least 6'1" w/ a 48" chest & 18" neck. And yes, he's at Forest Lawn Glendale.

This is a closer shot of Hope where the box (not seen) made him taller than 6'1" Joe DiMaggio: Click Here
It's on a weird fetish website listing female celebs wearing opera gloves. I suppose there's something to turn on everyone!

I found a website with a lot of photos of the rich and famous and one shows Hope standing on a box with other famous people. It wouldn't link properly and now I forgot where I found it. If I can find it again and copy it, I'll email it to Rob to post. The photo is very funny as well as revealing.

On the new TCM Archives Laurel and Hardy DVD collection there is a bonus documentary detailing the history of the "Short subject". Included is a clip from a 30s short starring both Stander and Bob Hope. Standing side by side Hope looks just a hair shorter. This must have been when Bob was at his 5'10" peak and he may have been wearing lifts. There wasn't 2 inches difference between the two. We all know Hope wasn't 6 foot so it just goes to show you can't always go by what you see on screen.
The same DVD has a clip of Jack Benny introducing L&H in a movie in 1929! All three were young men then. There is a brief shot of Benny standing next to Babe Hardy when Hardy was standing somewhat straight and there is a noticable difference. I used to think Benny was of medium height, but even with the lifts he was probably wearing in this clip you can tell he's probably closer to the 5'7" that Frank2 quotes than the 5'9" or so. Either way, it was a treat to see two of my favorite comedy acts share the same stage if only briefly.
I know that Frank2 thinks Hardy was less than 6 foot. I still think he was 6 foot or maybe a half inch taller. He looks about that height next to 6'3" Tom Kennedy in another clip from this set and in watching some of the Fox L&H films that just came out on DVD; Hardy is still looking quite tall even in his 50s. He obviously wasn't 6'2" though as some would say.

My dad is there as well as the many people you mentioned. I can't stand cemeteries. The very idea of planting bodies six feet under is archaic.

Have I mentioned yet that Clark Gable, Humphrey Bogart, Sammy Davis Jr. Errol Flynn, Dorothy Dandridge, Jimmy Stewart, Nat King Cole, George Burns, Walt Disney, and yes, Lionel Stander, are my neighbors? I live across the street from Forest Lawn Cemetary in Glendale, California. Some people find it morbid to live near a cemetary. The best thing....no loud parties from the neighbors!
