I'd say 6'3.75". He looks a little over an inch taller than Ebsen, who was more like 6'2.5" rather than his billed 6'3".

He looks like Simon Cowell in the above photo...

I'm six foot four and I have never done a crunch in my life. I apologize. Jethro.

I think the 189cm might be an official boxing measurement.

Rob, could you add Max Baer Sr?
He was also described as 6ft4 but then listed 6ft2½ in other places. I reckon that would be closer. Naturally you can see where his son inherited the height from. A 'strong' tall father and mountainous 6ft6½ uncle
Editor Rob: called 6ft 2 a few times yeah, but would need to look into it.

Max Jr was definitely 6' 4". As "The Beverly Hillbillies" series progressed, there appeared to be a widening gap between Max and Buddy Ebsen who was originally 6' 3" peak. Buddy was getting older and heading towards 6' 2.5". Rob, how about a Buddy Ebsen page? In his later TV work (e.g. "Barnaby Jones", "Matt Houston"), Buddy was closer to 6' 2".

His father was Max Baer 6'-21/2" who was heavy weight champ in the early 30's. He killed a man in the ring and never got over it. Max was a lovable clown who should never have been a boxer but was one of the hardest hitters in boxing history. He also starred in The Prize Fighter and The Lady, and many more including the last movie for Bogie The Harder They Fall.

If you watch The Beverly Hillbillies (and I did, as I was an unusually backward child) Baer seems to be just about an inch taller than Buddy Ebsen, who claimed six foot three. So: two actors on one TV show who were telling the truth about their heights. Odd.

Buddy Ebsen was 6 ft 2.5 to 6 ft 3 in. Max was a little taller at 6 ft 4 on The Beverly Hillbillies.

Is former Heavyweight champion Max Baer this guy's dad?

In the movie Born to Dance, Buddy Ebsen looks the same as James Stewart.He always looked 6ft 3and half to me. His website also says this.

Does anyone know the height of co-star Buddy Ebsen
