Would have made a great Superman...right height and had a pretty decent build for his era. Not overly muscular but a bit more dialed in and he could have pulled it off

Watching him on GUNSMOKE. Doesn’t look to be more than 3 or 4 inches shorter than 6’7” James Aries’s.
I estimate 6’ 3 1/2”

I just saw the 'Starsky & Hutch' season 2 finale "Murder on Stage" guest starring Rory.

The opening scene shows him standing next to a young Jeff Goldblum and I was surprised to see him only 2 inches shorter at most.

Impossible for RC to be anything less than 6'2.5" and possibly the peak 6'3.5" listed height was actually true.

This 1948 column (page 4) mentions him as Six foot Four inches. Maybe he was something in between, like 192 cm? Always looked very tall.
