NO,NO, NO Viper. It's not as simple as that. You're blind and you have a problem with tall guys. Connery was never less than 6'2" as a young man. The Bond Tailors BS is exactly that--BS. They refuse to confirm whether or not he was measured at said height; why should anybody believe them if they're going to play that silly game. The man always looked 6'3" in dress shoes in all his films--from the '60s well into the '90s. Furthermore, he's always been noticeably taller than 6'0" and 6'1" men and he holds his own against very tall men (6'2" - 6'4" range). You might as well get over the fact that Sean Connery was--and still is--a tall guy. Deal with it.

@Ka: Agreed. He has about 2" on Harrison Ford in LAST CRUSADE--and he was 59 at the time! He had 1" to 1.5" on 6'1" Kevin Costner in THE UNTOUCHABLES from '87, and he had 6'0" Mark Harmon by 2" in 1988's THE PRESIDIO.

[Editor Rob: I'm not as sure about this 6ft 2.4, whether it was in trainers or barefoot or if it was legit.]

Though there is no details into this measurement, don't you think there is some truth in this measurement? For starter, at peak Sean has to be right on the 6'2 mark. Look at him next to Harrison Ford on The Last Crusade at almost 60 yrs old

Rob, which is more likely. 188, 189, or 186.7 cm at peak?
[Editor Rob: I know there is the 6ft 1.5 been mentioned aswell, but I'm not sure if anyone has ever managed to find a clip or record of that one, both are elusive!]

186-187 peak and 184 today
Viper said on 12/Oct/11
Im way more inclined to believe the Bond Tailors stuff because he flat out didnt look 6-2 plus. Its as simple as that.
miko said on 12/Oct/11
I can buy 6'2.4 out of bed, but as for his real height, he always looked nothing more than a solid 6'1. (Maybe around 6'1.5 daytime).

Looks more 6'0.5 today. Lost an inch or so.

@James: I don't know if I'd go so high as 6'3" for Connery out of bed as a young man. I would say 6'2 1/2" for sure and even well into older age. As mentioned, the 6'2 1/2" measurement carries more weight for me as it was done barefoot for his Mr. Universe competition. Either way, you've seen the films yourself: he was and still is a tall man.

tb7

If he was truely 6'2 1/2 then he would be around 6'3 out off bed.
Ka said on 11/Oct/11
Rob, at what time of the day do you think the 6'2.4 measurement for Sean was done, like 2 hours out of bed? Maybe 6'2.25 at peak?

@James: You mentioned it before: he's kept his height. He's not like Clint Eastwood--a man who's shrunk a good bit over the years. I agree with you: in his prime, Sean Connery was a strong 6'2" man. I place more value in the barefoot measurement taken for him during his bodybuilding days: he was close to 6'2 1/2". Easily over flat 6'2". Also, I agree with you with regard to Carrey, Ford, and Cage. Even with Carrey, however, I thought that Connery had a slight edge. Bottom line: today, 6'2" out of bed, and strong 6'1" territory for the bulk of the day.

Funny note: while watching THE ANDERSON TAPES, there is an early scene in which government agents conduct a surveillance operation against Duke Anderson (Connery). As he enters a Manhattan apartment building, an agent relays intelligence through his radio to HQ, and describes Duke as being "tall, six-three." I've seen too many films--just watch any Bond film he's in--where Connery is easily 6'3" in shoes.

tb7

maybe 6'3 out off bed in younger days?
thebad7 said on 7/Oct/11
Jiao: This is as good as the tripe you posted at Benicio Del Toro's page. Larry Fishburne is a weak 6'0" at best--he's more like 5'11. Connery was always 6'3" in dress shoes--be it Bond films or otherwise. Easy 6'2" barefoot. Get glasses and get over your beef with tall guys. Connery was a tall young man, and even today at 81, he's still tall.

@James: In those pics that I saw from around 2008, I thought he was still close to the 6'2" mark--bare minimum 6'1 1/2" as you observed. Today, in 2011, I'd guess 6'2" in the morning hours and probably a strong 6'1" throughout the afternoon and into the evening.

FYI: I watched Sir Sean in 1971's THE ANDERSON TAPES this past Saturday. Next to a young Christopher Walken, whom I believe to be 6'1" as a young man, Connery had him by at least 1", maybe close to 1 1/2". In his younger days, Connery was easily 6'2"+.

also he does look the same height as jim carrey who is listed on this site as 6'1 1/2. he always look noticibly taller than 6ft harrison ford and 6ft 1/2 nicholas cage so i think even in quite recent times still close too 6'2 maybe?

high chance on his best day in his prime might have measured over a flat 6'2

6"2.25(189cm) in his prime is probably spot on.
Forget 6"1.5 peak. That's bogus. Today he's probably around that height though
James said on 30/Sep/11
thebad7 what do you think 185 or 186cm these days? i think 5 years ago he looked 187cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Sep/11
Eastwood only hit 6"4 out of bed in his younger years.
thebad7 said on 28/Sep/11
I wanted to mention this here since it's been a recent topic on Clint Eastwood's page. Several posters have written they consider the supposed 6'1 1/2" measurement by the Bond tailors to be dubious, and I agree them. Forget the 6'1 1/2" nonsense claimed by the Bond tailors. Connery was a tall, well-built man when younger, and even now at 81, he looks fantastic. Anything less than 6'2" for him as a young man is a joke, and he's kept his height well into advanced age. I have read, too, like others, that in his bodybuilding days he was measured barefoot at almost 6'2 1/2" barefoot, and I can buy that since he's always been noticeably taller than men who are six flat or 6'1". Even today, I think he's still close to the 6'2" mark and probably in the strong 6'1" range by the time night falls.

That's easily two inches. A 6'2.5" Connery would equal at least a 6'4.5" Sutherland and a 6'5" Eastwood.

thebad7 yeah i think 189cm is not impossible for his peak although i think sean connery stayed around 6'2 for DECADES much longer than clint eastwood stayed at his peak off 6'4.

In the Untouchables.
Sean Connery 6'2 (188cm)
Kevin Costner 6'1.25 (186cm)
thebad7 said on 12/Sep/11
Watched him recently in two films: 1987's THE UNTOUCHABLES and 1964's MARNIE. This worked out well because I caught him in both the early and later stages of his career. In '64 for MARNIE, he was wearing dress shoes, and he looked to be an easy 6'3" in shoes. Likewise, by age 57 in THE UNTOUCHABLES, he still looked tall--he had an inch & change on 6'1" Kevin Costner, and both were wearing like footwear. Barefoot as a young man, Sean Connery was a strong 6'2"; I could buy as high as 6'2 1/2" for him barefoot. In fact, I think poster Shaun said something about this on Lee Van Cleef's page, and I agree with his comment: Connery's body type reminds me of Van Cleef's and I think he looks the same height on screen as did Van Cleef--who was himself a strong 6'2" man. Connery has always looked tall in his films, and although I haven't seen recent pictures of him, the most recent pictures that I have seen--circa 2007/2008--indicate that he's still close to the 6'2" mark. I think it's a safe bet that Connery is at least to this day still 6'2" at least during the morning hours. He has aged very well.

6'3 out off bed at peak

Definitely...

In the 1960's
Out off bed: 6'2.75 (190cm)
Early morning: 6'2.75 (190cm)
Mid-Morning: 6'2.5 (189cm)
Lunchtime: 6'2.5 (189cm)
Afternoon: 6'2.25 (189cm)
Evening: 6'2.25 (189cm)
Night: 6'2 (188cm)

Eh,they measured him barefoot at 6'1.5" in the 1960s. 6'2" night height is BS. Midday maybe. 6'2.5" morning.

Don't agree since he had an edge on Michael Caine and was measured in bodybuilding at 189cm.

Connery was a strong 6'2 but he was not 6'3. Still looks 6'1 in recent years.

So in 1975
Michael Caine 6'2 (188cm)
Sean Connery 6'2.25 (189cm)

With 184cm Nicholas Cage in 1996 Connery was still a solid 6'2 (188cm)

In 2006 with Cage 186-187cm range

Notice as well that cage always has bad posture with connery

You're absolutely right James, Connery looks eight inches shorter than Crichton here and appears slightly taller than 6ft Nicolas Cage. He's 6ft1 and no taller than that. 6ft2.25 peak.

Cage i'd estimate to be about 6ft 1/2 (184cm) and I think Connery still looks 6'2 (188cm) in that photo compared to Nicholas.

I am convinced that connery was probably a strong 6'2 peak like 6'2.25. Connery was a weak 6'2.5 if that makes any sense?

Impressive that Connery has not lost much height.

Connery is one of those guys who keeps himself in good shape and therefore only experiences minimal height loss. In the 60s and 70s he looked like a big 6ft2+ guy.

Not always look at Clint Eastwood who was close to 6'5 at his peak and he kept himself in very good shape as he got older yet he dropped from a strong 6'4 to a flat 6'3 during the 1970's and these days might only be 6'0.

Connery in comparison has only lost 1.25 from his peak height not quite as dramatic as clint.

I'm reading his biography at the moment. It said his father, Jospeh, was only 5 ft 8 and a muscular 180 pounds but described his mother as "statuesque" so I presume he got his height from his mother.

As listed. Strong 6' 2". In Diamonds Are Forever he looks 6 feet 3. All the Bond girls I spoke with said 6 feet 2. I saw him at The Bellagio a few years ago, slight forward bend to his upper back, still over 6' with ease.

Agreed Brad. He looked 6ft3 in 'The Longest Day' as well.
Ka said on 23/Jun/11
Legit 6'2 at peak on screen, which matches up to the 6'2.4 bodybuilding measurement. Of course it's a barefoot measurement, like bodybuilder put shoes on shows. At worse it's a 9-10 am measurement, and still he'd still around 6'2 or a fraction over at night. I'm not saying 187 peak is improbable, but I've seen his recent movies and picture, and this man still looks 6'1, so he has to be strong 6'2 peak

IMO the best Bond so far

He's looking closer to the height of Jason Connery, his 5'11" son, these days.
Connery never looked especially big or imposing to me. Had a build that made him look taller than he really was, but I recognized him as 6'1"-6'2" and a slim 180 lbs. in Dr. No and Diamonds Are Forever.

James said on 3/Jun/11
A man who is a legit 6'2.5 (189cm) will probably give of a very tall impression on screen, esspecially if he has a bodybuilder type of frame.

Now Sean Connery is a legit tall but he never looked very tall and imposing in his bond films. that is only one of the reasons why i think connery might have been closer to 187cm than 189cm which i understand is probably a little biased in my part.

then again that said it can all depend on your body type really.....
Mario said on 3/Jun/11
How can you say that when we don't even have solid information about the heights of most his co-stars and lesser known actors of his bond pictures? To me it's pretty obvious that he wasn't any close 6 ft 1, since he had always a considerable height advantage over legitimate 6 ft 1 guy's and looks similar in height next to other 6 ft 2-2,5 actors, even in the 90s.

Don't buy Jim Carrey being 184cm, that's bunk. I think he's closer to 6ft2. Connery in his prime I still believe was a little over the 6ft2 mark.

Didn't seem more than 6'1 in Goldfinger and Russia with Love

James, in his young days Connery clearly surpassed 6'2", and remeber the pics of him with Jim Carrey, Connery was at an advanced age and was about Jim's same height of 6'1.5". Connery CLEARLY SURPASSED 6'2" in his youth.

Some are saying that Carrey is 184cm.
Mr. Kaplan said on 31/May/11
Caine was 6'1" peak. Not 6'2". Watch "Sleuth". He's with a 65 year old Olivier who was 5'10" peak, and he doesn't look more than 3 inches taller.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/May/11
Well James, I have suggested on the Michael Caine page that maybe it wouldn't hurt to give his peak as 6ft1.75. I know on face of it, quabbling over a quarter of an inch looks a kinda retarded. But it's the accuracy thats driving force behind this whole shindig. Like how often has Caine throughout his career appeared 6ft2? seldomly

michale caine being 6'2 is debatable becuae Frank2 i think stated that Caine was more 6'1 at his peak. Also in the picture connery is closer to the camera....

so it could be

Sean Connery 6'1.5 (187cm) peak Today 6'0.5 (184cm)
Michael Caine 6'1.25 (186cm) peak Today 6'0 (183cm)

Both have only really lost 1 inch from there peak heights. Not bad compared to Clint Eastwood or James Garner.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/May/11
Connery is closer to the camera and also looks intoxicated.

I think at that time Connery was 6ft2.25(189cm) and Caine was 6ft1.75(187cm)

Where's your proof that body builders were measured with sh0es on? Plain stupid. LMA0

True.

ats the problem of Sean Connery being a 188-189 cms guy? He looked that tall in his early films
James said on 22/May/11
i don't think he was 6'2.5 becuase he was also 2 inches shorter than donald sutherland who probably was not even 6'4 at his peak.

i am sorry but i think 189cm is very unlikey for connery.
Larry said on 22/May/11
He was a solid 6 1 no doubt, he was barefoot countless times as Bond, but I just see that he was a full 6 2. 6 1.5 seems completely fair

Nope, in bodybulding competitions is very unprobable that they measure with shoes, more likely he got measured barefoot. Please understand it. And that "Bond Tailors" argument is crap, that website was not a very reliable source. Is more reliable the 6'2.4" measurement Rob knows.

He was MEASURED as 6'2.4", so he surpassed 6'2", he was over 6'2". The measurement is the most accurate proof we have.

Funny actually you say that because in his later film carrier in the 90's he actually gave of a more bigger and impressive appearence than he did in the 1960's.

1.- James tryed to contact the bond tailor, and, there was not really good answerd, they only told him that the information was "confiential".
2.- for be quite honest the site of the bond chart looks like a bad joke(even the portraits of the bonds are bad draws whit awful proportions).
3.-cant you simple think for a minute that is posible for connery to be 6ft 2.5 at the morning in his 20s?
4.- in bodybuilding if you ever seen a video competition you are complety barefoot, you stod in line to get weighted and measured.
5.- you are fighting for .5 inch wich if i dare to say is not that big, maybe a full inch will be more beliavle but, seriusly, half inch?
6.- this guy will not be the first guy who is taller than his claimed height.

finaly for be quite hones this guy really looked solid 6tft 2 in his yount, he was pretty much build like charlton heston, broad shoulders, thic neck, long but broad legs, i will not be surprised if this guy make it to the 90s.

It is just my opinion that like most if not all of Bond actors he was significantly shorter than 6'1 - 6'2 which is the legendary 'Bond Standard'.
I remember seeing some of his pictures when younger and when he didn't get overweight and he struck me proportionwise as an average height bloke.
Interesting how noone has actually met him or something? Of course now we can expect PR agents 'I am 5'8 walked past him and he totally dwarfed me'.

Don't underestimate how tall 6'0 is and you can tower some at that height.

It was rarely to see an actor being Sean Connery's height or more in the old Bond movies, you only see one actor per 3 movies that was the same or taller than him XD... At more than 57 years old, when he filmed Indiana Jones and the last Crusade, he clearly had more than one inch on 6'0.75" peak Ford.

The Bond tailors give a height of 6' 1 1/2" inches for Connery. CelebrityHeights.com lists Connery as being 6'1". Connery's official measured Wax Museum height was 6' 1 1/2" tall without shoes.

Wow, so Connery was measured twice at 6-1 1/2. Logic says the 6-2.4 measurement was in shoes.

viper be rasonable, you are fighting for .5 inch, that is 1.27 cm, connery in his 20s after a good night of sleep, could wake upand be 2 cm taller. On top of that he was always taller than moonroe, he always gives a more impresive precense than him, and we dont know i what sircunstances they were measured, James himself try to have information of that and was left why little, because that is confidential we dont know for sure, so they could be barefoot, measured whit what? a proper platform whit a metric scale? or a simple metric tape?.

If you say 1-2 inches more than what Viper wants to think, you are probably about right.

I have been seriously wondering for years why this guy wants to think that celebs are shorter than what they really are, even when they aren't that tall to begin with like Stallone.

I mean, this site seems pretty accurate to me, and in some cases we can debate about a cm 1 or 2 or even the possible loss of height but 4-5cm is just too much, and when a legitimate 6 ft 2.4 scottish towers of a 6 ft guy appearently we have also to downgrade that other fella to make our argument work.

The man doesn't age anymore, today at 81y he looks about the same as he was 22 years ago in "The Last Crusade" it's amazing, plus he is still tall at 6'1 today (he lost only 1inch at 80!).

Well for starters

is jim carrey really as high as 6'1.5?
carrey has footware disadvantage and is not standing as straight as connery


Like I said in his bond movies often looked around the height of say pierce brosnan like 6'1. In Russia with Love as well looked 1.86m.

i think u guys are being biased not mentioning connerys footware advantage in the photo.

Overall judging by the pics i would say a current height of 6'1 (185cm) or 6'1.25 (186cm) looks fair. He's not 188cm these days though.
Mark said on 15/Apr/11
...If you look at a legit 6'3 guy, they don't look like Connery, build-wise. After 6'2, you are either lanky or huge. Connery was sturdy, but certainly not huge looking. And he was never lanky.

viper, connery looked very solid 6ft 2 in the first james bond movie (were he wa at his slimiest body), he easily makes nicolas cage look like a weak midget in the rock, looking alot broader and tall than cage. And rafa tought is correct, in bodybuilding you are meassure barefoot, you need to be barefoot and almost clothless because they need your correct weight. And viper, if connery only was 6ft 1.5 then how he could give the same 6ft 1.5 with Jim Carrey when he was already very old(almost 80) if he wsnt a proper 6ft 2 in his yout?

Hahaha this guy never stops. I dont' give a s__t about "Bond Tailors". That also says Roger Moore was 6'1" and Pierce Brosnan 6'1", when Roger and Pierce probably surpass the 186 cms mark. In bodybuilding competions people are almost without clothes, they are in some sort of "underwear", so It's nonsense to be "measured in shoes". He was 6'2.4". It's not so hard to accept it.

LOL, you are so delusional. The 6-2.4 measurement was in shoes. He never looked that tall in his life anyway. Bond tailors measured him at 6-1.5 BAREFOOT. BAREFOOT, can you get that through your head?

Rafa, i think we never know how was exactly tall mr. Connery. I think that's this site it's full of suppositions and empty of sure notices! The only fact that the editors consider evening's height the real height of someone it's the demonstration of the site's disputability! Rob can certificate the height of the people who met (not always) but cannot certificate the height of the people who never met (who are the majority)! Only one thing is certain: Sean Connery has never been over 6'2.4" (1.89 m) also at his peak and also Bond Tailors ensure he was around 6'1.5" after a working day!
rafa said on 9/Apr/11
Sorry Viper, but you have absolutely no idea of what are you talking about. In bodybulidng comeptitions people are without the majority of clothes. It has no sense to be in your underwear and have shoes at the same time. Sean Connery height in his youth was a solid 6'2.4".
rafa said on 8/Apr/11
Johan Cruyff, this is not only my opinion, It is also the opinion of this website editor. He is a person that has searched MUCH information abut the height of celebrities. I have been visiyting this site for 4 YEARS or MORE, and I don't "overestimate" anyhing. Overestimating is saying Stallon is 5'10". And if you havent read the top of the page , Connery was measured at his youth 6'2.4" for a bodybuilding competition. Bodybuilders get measured after they wake up? No. He was 6'2.4"
Viper said on 8/Apr/11
Connery has never seen 6-2 in his life. Get real. The 6-2.4 was in shoes. Bond Tailors measured him at 6-1.5 barefoot.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Apr/11
Sean Connery was 6ft2.25-6ft2.5 territory in his prime...

Probably 186cm or 187cm today...still close to 6ft2
Viper said on 7/Apr/11
Clint Eastwood could have been as low as 6-3, imo. I think he was just shy of 6-4.

Connery was just shy of 6-2. The 6-2.4 stuff was in shoes.

Sorry, you are laughably wrong. bond Tailors measured him at 6-1.5 barefoot.
Johan Cruyff said on 7/Apr/11
rafa, i think you overstimate the height's of many actors: I'm agree with you saiyng Connery was 6'2.5" and Eastwood 6'4" at their peak, but these height's were morning height's, not in the evening!!! Connery has never been around 6'3" out of bed (real height) and 6'2.5" after, it's too much! I worked in the cinema and i can garante to you that many actors used some artifices, like boots or shoes with the soles strengthened! Trust me, many actors appear taller than they really are!
rafa said on 6/Apr/11
Viper, you are delusional if you think Connery in his youth wasn't more than 2 centimetrs taller than 6'1.5". Between 6'1.5" and 6'2" is a line in my opinion that divides " strongly tallish" and "strongly tall" in European countries and North America. If Connery in his youth was 6'1.5". Clint Eastwood in his youth was about 6'3". But we know that Connery was 6'2.4" and Eastwood 6'4". Nowadays maybe we have Sean taller than Clint XD
Viper said on 6/Apr/11
Rafa you are delusional. Bond Tailors measured him at 6-1.5
Johan Cruyff said on 5/Apr/11
but don't be silly, please! Connery has never been 6'3" or more! Perhaps on heels! I know a person who met him in the 1966, when Connery was 36 yo, so he hasn't already lost his height's! He told me many times that Connery wasn't tall like many people describe him! He told me he was probably no more 6'2.5" (1.89 m) at his peak!
rafa said on 5/Apr/11
Sean Connery height wasn't 6'1.5", because no guy at 6'1.5" towers so many people. His peak was 6'2.4" barefoot, in the morning he was probably about 6'3" or more. Nowadays around 6'1"
Johan Cruyff said on 4/Apr/11
Sean Connery height's are:

25-50 years old
Morning (out of bed)= 6'2.45" (1.89 m)
After 1,5-3 hrs= 6'2" (1.88 m)
Ater 5-10 hrs= 6'1.6" (1.87 m)

Now he's around 1.85-1.87 m range.
James said on 27/Mar/11
187-188cm with 175cm Wesley Snipes in Rising Sun.

Wesley could be 174cm though?
James said on 27/Mar/11
he never striked me as looking a 6ft2+ guy in the bond movies. i am just saying he did not look much over 6feet
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Mar/11
I agree with dmeyer, the 6ft2.4 measurement is as legit as it gets...

Today he's still 6ft1+ ...
dmeyer said on 23/Mar/11
i think this guy is the type of guy who hasnt lost mush height over the years in movies like the rock and indiana jones he was already old and looked a couple of in over 6 ft cage and 6 ft harrisonn ford minimum 6 ft 1.75 in those movie in 2006 pictures he steel looks weak 6 ft 2 was 76 yrs old by then and steel noticably taller than 6 ft cage peak was defenetly 6 ft 2.4 by 60s probably 6 ft 1.75 and 6 ft 1 by now
James said on 20/Mar/11
I actually tried to email some bond tailors today and this is what they said

"Many thanks for your email.

I am afraid it is Savile Row rules that every customer's measurements are kept confidentially!"

If I can help any further, please do just let me know.

With best wishes

if a old sean manaje to look the same(in one of those he looks slight taller, not much, just like half inch maybe is carry jocking) how much higer he reach when young, one of the main reason that i belive him being a 6ft 2 prime(solis) is because even old he pul off the efect so efortless
georgeclooneysmum said on 17/Mar/11
He has said 6'1 1/2 on an american chat show programme. Can I find the link 'no'.

Rob assuming the link of Connery turns up again of him saying he is 6'1 1/2 depending on his shoe leather would you adjust his height?

Rob have you ever ask the bond tailors?

Rob one last think, if both came out as 6'1 1/2 would you change connery height or do you feel other evidence is stronger so they would not be relevant anyway?

[Editor Rob: if the 6ft 1 and half quote is verified then of course it would be great.

would a tailor measure the suit or would he measure the man on a stadiometer? Probably the former!]
James said on 15/Mar/11
Yeah funny he does look 6'2 compared to carrey
EdgarHernandez said on 14/Mar/11

Clint Eastwood might have had 2.5 on connery in thier youths.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Mar/11
His brawny build made him look 6"1 range
Shaun said on 12/Mar/11
Exactly... And he also looked 2.5 inches shorter than that ex US footballer in Never Say Never Again who played the black Felix Leiter (who was also 6'4" legit) ..I think he was about the same height as me shade over 6'2 out of bed and 6'1.5" afternoon height peak.

He was between 2 and 3 inches shorter than 6'4" Rick Van Nutter in Thunderball.

Then that would mean he's 6'1 1/2.

Hes not 6-2 though. Was measured at 6-1.5
thebad7 said on 7/Mar/11
One of the few living film icons remaining. He's still the greatest 007--and always will be. 6'2" sounds right for Sir Sean--he's always looked like a textbook 6'2".

I just watched him within the last few months in 1988's THE PRESIDIO with Mark Harmon. Harmon is 6' flat, and he looks it, and Connery had him by about 2", with both men back and forth between wearing standard dress shoes or boots. Keep in mind that he was about 58 years old at the time of that film. It's possible that Connery has lost some height since then, but from a few recent pics, he looks to be still hovering close to the 6'2" mark.

One other note: in the early '60s, during the early Bond films and Hitchcock's MARNIE, he looked to me to be at the 6'3" mark with shoes on. I wouldn't be surprised if at his peak Connery was 6'2" & a bit. I think Connery can be tricky at times because he does have a thick, muscular build--more mesomorphic, as was pointed out in previous posts, as opposed to ectomorphic (like Clint Eastwood).

Well he could look 6'1 in Russia with Love.

Connery himself admitted he was 6' 1.5'' barefoot. Surprised hes listed higher here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Feb/11
189cm peak and 187cm now
Burrington said on 31/Jan/11
@James

Read carefuly what i wrote, i'm stating that normally there's a correlation between bigger hands & feet and higher height. Connery's hands are in fact massive, hard to find in big men and deviant amongst average ones. I would like to know what do you mean by pretending to have ones comparable in size, prolly a tad over average.
Rich said on 31/Jan/11
I noticed a few people arguing that sean doesn't look all of 6ft2 in thunderball, but that might be because through most of that film hes wearing espadrilles which are flat beach footwear which really only add about half inch to your height.
EdgarHernandez said on 30/Jan/11
6ft 3 is a little extreme, posible 6ft 2 a bit(like .25 or .5)he one time in the day was measurument that, and in other time was measurument 6ft 1.5, probably 6ft 2.5 was his morning height, and he mantanin 6ft 2 for all the rest of the day.
Anonymous said on 29/Jan/11
6'3 peak? Really? He always looked like a solid 6'1 to me, 6'2 would be absolute max.
Lenad is sexy said on 26/Jan/11
I reckon most likely 188cm peak and 185cm now
EdgarHernandez said on 25/Jan/11
sorry, that last one coment in anonymus is mine, sorry, was my mistake

i woulden't rule out 187cm peak. The 6'3 estimates are laughing gas.

Well Edgar I think connery could have been either 6'1.5, 6'1.75 or 6'2 at his peak. Would u agree?
EdgarHernandez said on 23/Jan/11

He was an inch and a half taller than Ford in the movies.
