Editor Rob: you could say at times Ralph could look more than 6ft

Rob, could he have been over this peak?


He looked this mark in his 70's
Editor Rob: would need to see him again in 30's with well known people.

Richardson was six feet. Gielgud was five-eleven, the same height as James Mason. And yes people, I also knew Mason. He and my dad were good frinds. I even have a couple of rolls of 16mm kodachrome sound film that my dad took of me with Mason and his daughter Portland when I was about three and she was two. The last time I ran into Mason he was at the Motion Picture Academy samuel Goldwyn theater for a screening of Odd Man Out. that must have been only ayear or so before he died. At that screening he still looked to be a solid five-eleven since we stood together and spoke for a few minutes. God! He was a great actor! Sadly, Portland died in 2004 at age 55.

hard guy to get an exact height for. he looks to have a couple of inches on john gielgud in pics, and most descriptions describe him as tall, one from a biography refers to his "six foot frame" while discussing rehersals from a play in the 70s

not sure, but your right, height loss differs from person to person. really need to se an old film he was in to get an idea of his peak height

if he was about 5'11"/6' when he was 80, he proberly wouldve been about 6'2"/6'3" when he was younger, as everyone loses a few inches when they reach their 60s or so
