Like Travolta, solid 6ft guy who was bumped up to 6ft2

@5'7 and a bit because that cast is tall. Peter Graves 6ft 3, Leslie Nielsen 6ft 1, Lloyd Bridges & Robert Stack 6ft, Julie Hagerty 5ft 8; therefore Robert fails to look tall like he would IRL.

Just watched "Airplane!" last night. It was … quite unexpected to say the least XD.
I didn't realize Rob was this tall though! Thought he was only 5'9 range.
Either way he looks comfortably over 5'10 here, especially considering his posture so 6'0 is rather believable for a peak height.

6ft0-0½ range peak, 5ft10½-11 today

It's possible, in that film with Peter Weller, he could seem the bigger 6f t range guy...

He looks to be about 5'-11" tall, next to Rob! I think he was at least 6'-0" when younger, maybe a little more, but not 6'-2".

A bit over 6ft peak is my guess (w/h 6ft2 in boots)
Duffer 5ft 11 said on 6/Apr/19
183 peak (at a stretch) is entirely possible, looks about 178 or 179 cm tall with Rob in the main pic 5 years ago, but he IS stooping a bit, so I'll vote him in at bang on 5'11" in 2019.

LOL 6'2!!!!! Some Men have ego problems.

He looks sort of compact in the torso area, so I can see how he was a taller man.

in airplane i thought 183-183,5 range and looked it up here right after i saw the movie, i think this is about right. the strange thinf is that he have lost 4 cm and isnt relly that old. Maybe he still can measure taller than he looks?

Giving yourself 3" of height in a claim. Good Job.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Nov/17
Not under 6ft and quite possibly stood a fraction over it. In some shoes I could see him getting close to 6ft2
Sam said on 29/Nov/17
Rob, any chance you could see him 6'0.25"-6'0.5" at peak? I think he might've edged Leslie Nielsen in Airplane.
Editor Rob
not entirely impossible...I believe the last thing I watched that Hayes was in was an old episode of Wonder Woman, I'd have put him as a solid enough 6ft in the scenes he had.

Peak: 184cm

on airplane i thought he looked 6 foot ore 1/4 over that. he have lost alot of height
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Apr/17
Strong 6ft in his prime I think.

He looked 187cm or near 6'2 ft in airplane.

Good role and good role had uncle Leslie too!

The unforgettable Ted Stryker. He looked like a six footer in Airplane

Rob, is near 6ft 0.5in possible for his peak?
slothee said on 23/Dec/14
I never thought of him looking 6'1-2". I always thought he was about 6'0". Looked 6'0" in Airplane.
Sam said on 22/Dec/14
I thought he could have passed for 6'1" back in Airplane but I see that he looks more a six footer in photos. 1.5 inches is a relatively large amount of height loss I think considering that he's 67.
Arch Stanton said on 21/Dec/14
6'2" peak is hilarious but I was going to say that he didn't look at low as 5'10 range peak. Somewhere around 6 ft is good I think.
Editor Rob
he's lost height for sure since Airplane days
