Repost (I forgot to paste in the link)
FYI - link to Paul Henreid's Declaration of Intention to apply for US citizenship. He lists his height as 6'3" and weight 160 lbs. Click Here
Quite a trim weight for that height.

The photo above pretty much sums it up. That doesn't look the kind of guy I want to spend too much time around. I heard he did a bit of a Brando in Exorcist II and demanded more money to appear briefly…

I've Rains wasn't a nice guy either. Same school of insecurities as Bogie...possibly height related

I've read Bogie did not enjoy In a Lonely Place because many people say that was the closest he came to playing himself...everybody has their issues I guess!

Bogie had issues for sure, but I liked him, and one of my favourite actors of all time. I wonder how much of his later problems on set were alcohol related though. Henreid just looked a nasty piece of work!

Also, they wanted Cary Grant first but didn't get him for Bogart's role in Sabrina, a fact that he open groused about on the set. Grant was much more natural in such a film.

This is getting off "height", but based on Audrey Hepburn's biography, Bogart resented Audrey getting the "Sabrina" role instead of Lauren Bacall, hence his cold attitude to Audrey and her then love, William Holden.

Can't speak for Henreid but I've read Bogart was a total professional who rarely took time to socialize while working and he was cold towards Bergman, who was very warm and romantic, since he was being tracked by his insanely jealous wife at time, Mayo. The film I read Bogart was actually a total jerk to everyone on was Sabrina, he may have been over-drinking and had a extremely resentful, bitter attitude towards Wilder, Hepburn & Holden. Seemed like from Arch's link that Rains and Henreid dislike ran both ways and was a bit of mystery.

@Arch: Apparently Bogart was a jerk to everyone on the set of Casablanca including Ingrid Bergman. He had a bit of a Napoleon-complex.

The movie where Henreid's height is given as 187 cm was actually 1942's 'Joan of Paris'. I must say 6'3" Laird Cregar seemed to have a slight edge on Henreid in it, maybe Paul was more 6'2.5" range?

Good walking shot with Henreid and the other mains in Casablanca...you can actually see Bogie's huge, clomping lifts there! Henreid skies over 5'9" Ingrid Bergman.
Around 3 inches taller than 6'0" Robert Donat:
In his films with Bette Davis you can tell they had trouble getting in the same frame, Henreid is frequently leaning over or seated. For his generation, he was about the equivalent of a near 6'6" guy.

Viktor Laszlo forever. He looked 1`91 in Casablanca. A bit taller than Conrad Veidt
Shadow2 said on 22/Jun/15
Henreid seemed 6' 3" alongside 6' 2.5" Conrad Veidt in "Casablanca", and equal to Dan Dailey's legit 6' 3" in "Meet Me in Las Vegas". In a 1940's espionage movie ("The Conspirators"?) his character's passport states 187cm (6' 1.5"). This ironically looked to be Henreid's later height in his senior years while appearing in TV series at Universal in the late 60's and early 70's with Robert Wagner and George Hamilton.

Rains didn't like him either, took an "immediate dislike" to him Click Here
Now Rains seemed like a thoroughly decent chap and good judge of character.

Rob can you squeeze in Rope of Sand and Exorcist II: The Heretic?
Yes, he looked a good 6'3" I thought. I don't think he was a very likeable guy, I can see why Bogie didn't like him aside from his height haha. Came across as a bit of an arrogant p***k.
