There is a 'Usual Suspects' style pic of the Hussle cast against a height wall. Vaughn stands bolt upright and if you look at his feet it looks like he is on his toes, but I think they are just massive lifts.
Yeah, he'd shrunk a few inches by the time of Hustle.

Sorry to disagree with Rob's eval on this one (Rob is great at height estimations) but he honestly looked about 5'8" in Bullitt, something close to 2" between him and Steve McQueen. Frank2 is on the money in this particular case.

In the 80s I did come across him in an airport: I was 5 11"+ barefooted and I was surprised how shorter he was 5 8" max (with shoes on)

Shares a Birthday with me! Loved him in Superman 3, he and I are just about the same height.

publicity documentation lists his Harry Rule character in the Protectors as 5'8".This sounds about right.

Rob he hasn't lost an inch and he is pushing 80 what's his secret.

Never at 5'9"!! Met him at Danbury CT theater buyung popcorn in 2010. I am at best 5'8" and I towered over him. We visited for 10 minutes and I praised his career. He liked that. .But he was amybe 6'6" or 5'7" unless he were to wear elevator shoes!

I liked this guy's acting, but he always struck me as a vain man, so he may have worn lifts.

He was at least 5'10'' when I ran into him in London a few years back.

I drove Robert Vaughn in a huge black prewar convertible Mercedes in "Inside the Third Reich" (filmed behind the Haus der Kunst in Munich near where Arnold Schwarzenegger lived when I knew him in 1968) in 1981 (released for TV in 1982), directed by Marvin Chomsky. Vaughn was playing a Luftwaffe officer sitting in the back of the car, with the top down. I had been given only 15 minutes to practice driving the car and I popped the clutch by mistake while they were filming, causing the car to jerk, which required a retake, in front of a huge crowd! I remarked to Vaughn, who seemed to me to think that I had a nerve talking to him, that it would have been better if the car had had power steering! He was taller than me at the time, about 5'11'' I would say. Roger Field

Met him in Ipswich UK 21 August 08 and he looked shorter than my 5'9"
I would say 5'8" could well be right

For me, he used to look roughly 5´9" in the sixties films and TV serials.
A sort of "Bond look", in a shorter size.

I saw Robert Vaughn today at a movie theater in Danbury CT, and spoke with him. I am only 5'8" and 74 years old as is Vaughn. I towered over him. He only came up to my eyes. I put him at best today at 5'6" or even less. If he were ever taller he would not have shrunk more than one or two inches. I used to be 5'9" and I doubt he was even that tall when he hwas 20 years old.

Frank2 and Ray are right, watch the Columbo episode "troubled waters" and you'll see he is only 2 inches taller then 5'6 Peter falk, not a 5'10" bloke by any stretch of the imagination, I miss Frank2 now.

When he was younger he was a full 5ft 10. In the magnificent seven he was only a little bit shorter than 6ft 2 or 3 james coburn.
[Editor Rob: he is shorter than marc warren in hustle, so probably around 5ft 8 in the final phase of his career.]
Josh said on 25/Apr/07
vaughn looked the same height as steve mcqueen in bullitt and the magnificent seven so he was round 5ft 9 or a bit over.
but now he could be a little under that.
Brad said on 23/Nov/06
Yeah, he wears blocks as heels. Had to cast all the regular short actors on U.N.C.L.E., much like Robert Conrad.

I've just seen Mr Vaughean near Oxford street /approached him to say hello. I reckon he's around the 5'10" mark (OK - his shoes were a bit chunky)- He looked absolutely average to me... (as far as height is concerned of course!)
D. Ray Morton said on 7/Aug/06
I used to see Mr. Vaughn all the time growing up. I'd put serious dough on 5'8".
Brad said on 7/Aug/06
5' 8" at Ray Courts' celebrity show. Not a nice guy. Both McCallum & Vaughn are really great actors. I saw McCallum do a play and I wondered why he wasn't bigger in films. Obviously trained by London's finest stage teachers.
Frank2 said on 30/May/06
Robert Vaughn was never, ever 5'10". I've met him, stood right next to him and towered over him and I'm just 5'11".

Bob at his peak was 5'10.
lappers84 said on 24/Mar/06
i reckon he's more 5'8 nowadays as he seems just a little shorter than marc warren(5'9) in hustle
Bill said on 14/Mar/06
My man from Uncle Episode guide says that Robert Vaughn was 5-10 and David McCallum was 5-9, perhaps a bit of rounding up, for those in the UK check the ITV series Saphire and Steel with McCallum alongside Joanna Lumley 5-8

Bob Vaughn was an inch shorter than Paul Newman in The Young Philadelphians. I doubt he was ever any taller than five feet eight. I met him about fifteen years ago and he looked to be about that height. back when he did The Man From UNCLE his publicity listed him at six feet. He wore lifts in that series.
