I came here thinking 6’1” and then remembered he was listed 6’4”. Yes, more like Bud Spencer’s peak height upon seeing the telling photos with Arnold.

In that scene in Stay Hungry, Sotiras, Bridges was wearing shoes and Arnold was barefoot.

I’m going to say he’s 6’3”.

He was definitely taller than Arnold, but was so stout and husky, it’s easy to think he’s taller.

@tree Arnie looks shorter than Brigitte, not taller... Click Here I needn't remind you that Arnie is closer to the camera.

6'1" Jeff Bridges (6'2" in shoes) w/ a barefoot Arnie in "Stay Hungry" (1976):
Click Here Arnie was never 6'2", like he says, nor 6'1". He looked all of 5'11" next to Brigitte.

Just for fun, here's Sly in elevator shoes next to Arnie... Click Here Whereas here, we see just how small Sly really is... Click Here

Here's Arnie w/ a now 5'10.25" George W. Bush... Click Here Rob thinks Arnie is now 5'11.25"... He's not.

Brion James was 6ft2 minimum

Brion James is 6ft 1in, and looks small in comparison to Paul, who acted alongside him in Sam Raimi's Crimewave. I'd say he was probably taller than 6ft 4in.

Paul L Smith looked nothing like 6 ft 4.If he was 6 ft 4 he would literally look like a Giant. In Midnight Express he looked 5 ft 10 at most. You see him with the other guards in the movie he is the same height as them.A 5 ft 10. A Turkish man of 5 ft 10 would stand out in a crowd of other Turkish men. In Turkey even a 5 ft 7 man would be taller than the average Turkish man. Brad Davis was 5 ft 6 and he towered over many of the Turks in Midnight Express.'ll say Paul Smith was around 5 ft 10

How tall was Brad Davis,Rob? Smith towered him in Midnight Express,I would have thought 5'8-8.5?
Editor Rob
I'd forgotten I hadn't added him, but he was shorter than John Hurt so I'd rule out in the 5ft 8+ range ;)

He looked like Bud Spencer in this picture.
