There's a couple pics here with his friend Clark Gable and Gable edges him out. If Gable was 6'0.5" as listed instead of 6'1", than Montgomery was no more than 6'0", although the listing may be accurate if Gable was actually 6'1".

Rob can you add best remembered for roles in films like Night Must Fall, Here Comes Mr. Jordan, Mr. & Mrs Smith and Piccadilly Jim? Yeah I think this looks about right, weak 6'1".

Tilt the photo! Stewart is at least three and a half inches taller.

I see a 2 1/2" to 3" difference in height in that picture between Jimmy Stewart and Robert Montgomery, making Montgomery about 6' to 6'-0.5"

Frank2: absolutely excellent commentary about today's movies and "stars"; no doubt about it. I laugh when I hear about people they call "stars" nowadays. Duke Wayne was STAR, Gregory Peck was a great ACTOR, Charlton Heston was a great ACTOR, etc. Most today are neither stars nor even decent actors, they are just well-known people in average movies. Over-hyped and over-rated! Talent should sell itself and today there is a lack of talent. Hooray Frank2! I don't go to the movies hardly at all anymore.

If you rotate the photo with Stewart which I've done, Bob comes up to Stewart's eye level which makes him around 5'10" to 5'11". Have you seen the old Mutiny on the Bounty starring Clark Gable? Tone has a major part in the film. Tone played an admiral in the film "In Harm's Way." He's in the scene with John Wayne when Wayne is relieved of his command after the attack on Pearl Harbor. Tone had a magnificent speaking voice, very deep and commanding. Or as they used to say, a "radio voice." We no longer have actors like Tone. Instead we have kids like Tom Cruise. No wonder people have stopped going to the movies. Forget that the films are terrible. The so-called stars are mostly juveniles who if placed next to actors like John Wayne and Franchot Tone would completely disappear.

I don't know who Franchot Tone is, but IMDB.com lists him at 6 feet even. I guess that would make Monty at least six feet tall also. Do you really see a 4 inch height difference bewteen Monty and Stewart in that photo? 2 / 2.5 maybe ? Ed Lowe is also listed at IMDB.com at 6 feet and Monty looks to be a half-inch taller than Lowe. I am trying to be better at analyzing photos! I do agree with Frank2: Monty is probably not 6-1.

Check out this one of Robert Montgomery with Jimmy Stewart: Click Here
If you rotate it properly to where it should be you'll clearly see that he's about four inches shorter. Or does Tiger think it's the other way around? Here's Montgomery with Joan Crawford and 5'11" Franchot Tone: Click Here
So Tiger, maybe Tone is on a box or was really 6'1". Tone was at leat two inches shorter than Gable in Mutiny on the Bounty.[Editor Rob: With Ed Lowe they look close in height. Did you ever seen Edmund, Frank?]

Speaking of egos......

Rob: you better change Montgomery to 5-11 1/2 ! There is no doubt about ! :)

Nope. Montgomery was about five eleven and a half. Don Defore was taller than him and Defore was a very close family friend. He was 6'1". I saw Don shortly before he passed away. Nice man.
