@ Rob - How tall are his daughters?
I like the name "Schroder"!
Maybe one close to 5ft 6 and other close to 2 inches taller than sister.

In case it hasn't already been shown -- an 18-year old Rick Schroeder in the 1988 TV movie, "Too Young The Hero" right at the 5'9" mark. Whatdyu think, shoes or no shoes? I had him pegged at 5'9", end of day barefeet height.
Editor Rob: hard to know, but a chance of no shoes there, given they got the guy in his boxers.

i say rick schroder is 5feet 10 inches because he would be taller than me and I am only 4 feet 10 inches and so yes he is close to being 6 feet

I always thought Ricky was at least 6ft tall. He gives that impression.

He did appear the same height or slightly taller than Brad Pitt in Across the Tracks. RS had somewhat lankier build than BP. These were the days before Brad Pitt was a big star. He's appeared taller ever since. Shoes and camera angles help and are often used for the top stars.
I believe the movie is available on dailymotion.

Rob, I dunno if you saw the same movie I did?! LOL In a 1988 TV-movie called "Too Young the Hero", an 18-year old Ricky Schroder standing in front of a height chart, appeared 5'9.5" on the dot, although he has claimed 5'10" more recently, and I thought he actually looked a tad taller than 5'10" Dennis Franz on TV's "NYPD Blue"-?? Maybe Franz is more a 5'9" barefeet height (5'10" in shoes)-?? In the film mentioned below, "Across the Tracks", yes he did appear a hair shorter than his co-star, Brad Pitt, by about an inch.

Better known for Silver Spoons Rob than he is for NYPD Blue.

No he didn't look the same as Brad Pitt in Across the Tracks at all Vibram, Pitt looked 1-1.5 inches taller to me.

Looked the same as Brad Pitt in "Across The Tracks" (1990). Both men are 176cm - 177cm.

An inch shorter than Brad Pitt, 5'9"-5'9.5" range as evidenced by that film he was in.

Rob - I'm going to hound you until you bump Schroder up, or explain to me how he's always taller than Franz in NYPD blue, yet listed as shorter on this site. Okay - maybe I won't hound you...really, I don't really care how tall Schroder is...LOL.

Around an inch taller than Franz, who's listed as 5'10", in every episode of NYPD Blue. Rob, somebody's got to be adjusted and I think it's Schroder. He needs to go up. If you take a straight object across MD's picture, Schroder has Lowe by 2 inches, and he looks to have lost a little in the way he is standing.

Rob in this picture (Click Here
) he is clearly 5'9".
[Editor Rob: that tv movie was filmed when he was 17, the old links are gone I think, there was a few other caps]

With 5'8.5" Chad Lowe:
Glenn looks to have judged Rick pretty well.

Kevin, remember he was a child actor, he looks quite young in that picture against the height chart, do you know when it was taken? Very likely he could have grown an inch if he was in his teens there.
rwfender said on 11/Mar/06
yes Glenn, someone posted a photo i think in the Brad Pitt section of Rick and Brad beside each other.
said on 11/Mar/06
youre right. in across the tracks is pitt only an inch taller then schroder. both of then had the same running schoes. and here is a photo of schroder where he stands aganst a wall. hes barely 5ft 9in but his feet are not visible anyway.
so if schroder is only 5'8 - 5'9 pitt isnt taller then 5'10
Glenn said on 11/Mar/06
I dont understand your question? did they ever stand next to each other? pitt can look 6 even.5-11 minimum.
rwfender said on 11/Mar/06
if he is 5'8 or 5'9 and an inch shorter than pitt, doesnt that make pitt 5'9-5'10?
Glenn said on 10/Mar/06
I saw 5-8,5-9.
