I admit, I am shocked by this. I thought he was 5'10'' to 5'11''.

Much taller than I thought.

6'1.5-6'2 range yeah, overall average I'd say 6'1.75 is a perfect guess.

Red was consistently an inch shorter than 6' 2.5" Conrad Veidt in one of the "Whistling" films. Sometimes in movies he appeared 6' 2", other times closer to 6' 1", as in "A Southern Yankee" alongside 6' 1" John Ireland. A 187cm listing covers this range.

For once Steve and I agree :-)

One of the greatest comedians. Thanks for including him.

He always looked tall.

Thanks. Can you also add Flight Command, Whistling in the Dark, A Southern Yankee and The Yellow Cab Man? Seems a good shout, somewhere in 6'1.5-6'2" range. He wasn't 6'3" or 6'4" that's for sure, I always saw him as a weak 6'2".
