"How tall are you?" [Robert] Taylor asked.
"Oh, I don't know, probably six feet," Mitchum answered.
"That can't be," Taylor said, looking up to the taller Mitchum. "I'm six-one. You have to be six-three or -four."
("In those days," Mitchum recalls, "every actor was supposed to be six-one...including Alan Ladd. And in this scene, we're supposed to be eyeball to eyeball. So, okay, he was six-one, but I know I'm about six feet and he had to look up at least an inch at me.")

[William Wellman] and his assistant director Robert Aldrich ran into Mitchum on Hollywood Boulevard...
"What kind of parts have you done?"
"For two years I've been supporting horses -- or vice versa."
"You mean to tell me you haven't been knocking 'em dead on Broadway? How tall are you?"
"Six foot or so, I guess."
"You guess? Don't you know? Every goddamn midget that comes in here says he's six feet tall. Alan Ladd is six feet three."
