I consider Green to have been at least a solid 6’2” maybe even a weak 6’3”. I thought Green was taller than both Michael Caine in The Ipcress File and 6’2” listed Glynn Edwards in Zulu. However, I believe Rock Hudson was not much over 6’4” by the time of Tobruk and he still looked approximately two inches taller than Green. There was also not a significant height difference between Green and Patrick McGoohan in a Danger Man episode and the same can be said between Green and Roger Moore in an episode of The Persuaders! I’d therefore vote 6’2.25” for Green.

Just watching the ipcress file and him and Caine look similar, 6'2 would be a good call on him

Green did an episode of Patrick McGoohan's TV series "Secret Agent" (aka "Danger Man") and he was very close in height to McGoohan. In "Tobruk" with 6' 5" Rock Hudson, Green was about three inches shorter than Hudson. 6' 2" seems quite right for Green.

No he wasn't. In some scenes he could look a tad taller, in others Caine could look to have the edge. They were about the same height.

connery was taller than caine in The Man Who Would be King. one of the reasons why i don't think caine was 6'2.
Arch Stanton said on 6/Apr/15
So Connery was also 6'1" then Jtm? Connery and Caine looked the same height more or less in The Man Who Would be King.

6'1 tops and so was caine.

It might have been the other way around then. Been a while since I've seen them. I must have been confusing him with Richard Johnson with Charlton Heston.

I recall he was very even height with Michael Caine in Zulu.

He was taller than Michael Caine in the Icpress files, are you sure he is not taller?
Arch Stanton said on 2/Apr/15
Can you also add Countess Dracula and The Wrecking Crew? Play Dirty was another one he did with Caine which I need to watch.

Thanks, can you squeeze in Khartoum? Are you sure on 6'2"? I thought Heston had him by about 1.5 inches in Khartoum. I'd have gone for 6'1" myself. I vaguely remember him at the end of the Ipcress File with Michael Caine and I thought Caine edged him out. I might be wrong on both but he is one I took note of in a few films and always thought 6'1" for him.
[Editor Rob: not sure if he was just 6ft 1.]
