I spent some time with Paul in Boulder in 1982. I would say he was close to six feet tall, maybe 5'11" or a little over.

Never looked less than 6' to me. Always looked tall.

I went out with him and a couple of friends a long time ago. He wasn't taller than 5'10.

Saw Paul in what I believe was his last movie, called ABOMIDABLE (the monster, not the movie). It is a SciFi movie and Paul was a bright spot (as usual). He played a clueless sheriff. How odd he should die from "black lung"?! :-(

He was hysterically funny in Trading Places. I'll never forget him with the gorilla! Paul was wonderul as the wimpy, clueless policeman in Die Hard. His classic line (delivered after the helicopter crashes), "They're gonna need some more FBI guys" still cracks me up. He'll be missed.
