At the time Diamonds Are Forever came out Connery was promted as 6 ft 2, not 6 ft 3 as what Yao Ming 7 "7 says. There is also a brief moment in wich you can see James Bond driving license in DAF wich states his height as 6 ft 2. In Thunderball you see Connery barefoot.

As was stated by another guy, Connery wore bigger shoes then normal to look 6-3, the height they promoted him at. Thats why he might look a littler taller then others around the same or just below his height. Richard Harris is 6-1, so Connery with a half inch more on his shoes will look an inch taller at least then Harris.

Viper, you have said that three times in the Connery page. You can better rent/ buy some Connery movie's of the 60s or 70s, compare then Connery to his co-stars and then take a conclusion. In Robin and Marian (1976), Connery is 1.5 inch taller than Richard Harris.

Connery was 6-1.5 barefoot, 6-2.5 with shoes on

In the Goerge Lazenby page I have posted a photo of the second in wich Desmond is full Straight and Lazenby also. Both guy's have a similiar height. But we can not base or facts in one scene, I don't have watched so much lazenby's movie's. But he looks to me a maximum of 1.89 CM in his Bond movie.
In the Dalton page I have posted that Timothy Dalton is clearly two inches taller than Billy Zane in Gleopatra (and both guys wore sandals). Are you gonna say that Dalton wore flesh-coloured lifts in his sandals? Perhaps why is Dalton as tall as Benicio Del Toro in License to kill? 6 ft + 2 inches of his heals would be 6 ft 2, right? Benicio is a strong 6 ft 2 + 1 inch of his shoes would be 6 ft 3? Robert Davi looks in every scene in License to Kill taller than Dalton and Del Toro, he looks 6 ft 2 in his most recent photo's, but in License to Kill he doesn't look shorter than 6 ft 3, I also renember also a movie in wich Davi looks 2 inches taller than Arnold Schwarzenegger. I think that Davi is the one who wore lifts.
It's also a fact that Connery has been measured without shoes, so Connery was in his 20s 1.89 CM, and I suppose that he was still that height at the time he played Bond.

He was an inch taller than Kevin Costner in "The Untouchables."
Mr. Klaus said on 28/Jul/05
Ehm I would say that Connery is slighty taller than Llewelyn, a cm or Two.
And Dalton ins't two inches shorter than Edwards in Hawks, I rent that movie last night and Dalton has such a bad posture in that movie, he isn't fully straight and that makes him shorter than Edward but when he is full straight he is as tall as that Edward guy. Ah and about the scene in License to kill in wich Dalton looks shorter than Davi, Dalton is barefoot and Davi has his shoes on. And Brosnan did not suddenly grown when he become Bond, in the most of his 80s movie's he looks the same height as what he looks in Goldeneye.
"Roger Moore - He was 6'0" in height barefoot, when he was cast as Bond in 1972 at age 44. Through making A View To A Kill, his last Bond film in 1984-5 at age 56-57, he was still 6 feet even barefoot. When he played Bond they gave him 2 inch heeled shoes, rather than one inch heeled shoes."
Yaphet Kotto was 3 inches taller than Moore in Live and let die, This story would make sense if Kotto also wore lifts.

Er, Klaus - "because Desmond Llewelyn, Charles Gray and other bond actors are listed as 6 ft 2 and Connery is taller than those guys."
Look at any Q scene and you'll see Connery is just ever so slightly shorter than Llewelyn!
Dalton is 2" shorter than Ant Edwards in Hawks so that part about him wearing lifts in all movies except that one is spot on.
Brosnan - how can ANYBODY not see that he suddenly 'grew' after becoming Bond? He has worn elevator shoes in every film since Goldeneye. Watch 'Live Wire', 'The long good friday' - any pre-95 film with Brosnan and tell me with a straight face he is 6'1"!!
Viper652 said on 27/Jul/05
That guys story sounds bang on to me. Especially If you read that long story on the Brosnan page on how Lazenby was 4 inches taller then Pierce when they shook hands. Both storys give the exact same heights for all the others

Dunno if that might help or not but...
Among other things Ian Fleming gave his literary son his own features: A very similar hedonic personality, the same eye color hair cut & color (when young) and yes...also his height.
Wich in books always was stated as 6'0"
We can compare him next to Bon..Ahem..Connery i mean, in some photos.
To me Connery looks near 2" taller in almost of them:
Except in this last one, but Ian is closer to the objective and connery uses a lower profile shoe:
He coul be very well 187-188cm when young, what do you think?
Mr. Klaus said on 25/Jul/05
Why not? Connery whore in the most scenes sandals in that movie and Caine Boots. I have seen also a lot pictures of Caine and Connery and Connery is clearly taller. I have watched a lot of Connery 60s movie's and I have taken the conclusion that he was at least 189cm at his peak. Perhaps, Connery isn't a guy who cares about his height.
Viper652 said on 24/Jul/05
I wouldnt go by that movie comparing him to Caine. Connory was 6-1.5 at his peak, and has lost a half inch at his age. It makes perfect sense really.
Mr. Klaus said on 18/Jul/05
James, you have read that in the James Bond tailorship, but how can Connery be 6'1 and a half if he is taller than 6 ft 2 Michael Caine?
James said on 17/Jul/05
Sean Connery was NEVER the tallest Bond, his real height without shoes was 6'1 and a half, the same as George Lazenby. Timothy Dalton, at 6'2, was the tallest Bond.
Mr. Klaus said on 12/Jul/05
J.J.F, Connery was 6'2.5 at his peak. Connery was slighty taller than Michael Caine in 1975, and Connery wore sandals in that movie! And I have another proofe, Connery is only one inch shorter than Steven Seagal, Seagal was Connery Martial Intructor in Never say Never again and was only one inch taller than Sir Connery. Watch more Connery movie's of the 60s en 70s and you will be convinced that he was this height.
J.J.F said on 11/Jul/05
"Sean was indeed 6'3" and tallest of the Bonds" er...
you must indeed beleive everything you read, JJ. connery was never more than 6'1.5"
And no, men dont typically lose 3", more like 1.5", maybe 2" in some cases.
I'd say Connery was lucky, he didnt lose much more than 0.5 inch.
Danjo said on 5/Jul/05
When you look at how short Moore was next to Christopher Lee (6'4") It seems that his reported height of 6'1" was exagerated a great deal. Connery, in one of his earliest interviews had him at 6'2" tall.
JJ said on 7/Jun/05
Sean was indeed 6'3" and tallest of the Bonds. Entirely possible he is now only 6.1" - men generally lose up to 3" in height between ages of 55 and 80 and Sean is now nearly 75 years old. The late James Stewart (at peak 6'5") once said on Parkinson Show that he had lost 4" - "but thankfully only off my height"
Gotxo said on 2/Jun/05
That 189cm measurement it's supposedly correct because it was for a bodybuilding contest and they are presumably measured by medical staff. Said this i don't belive it all. Many sport stars are rounded up even a pair of inches to be more attractive for teams, Arnold Schwarzenegger also cheated (pecata minuta) ;).
Mr Luis said on 18/May/05
I was talking about his height at his peak.
That site says that Connery was 6'1 1/4 at his peak and that moore was 6'1 at his peak. The Problem is that Connery was always 2 inches taller than Moore!
Sing said on 17/May/05
No way is Connery 1.90m Mr Luis. 1.86m or 6'1" max.
the giant said on 16/May/05
Connery is 6' - 6'1" without shoes, Roger Moore is no more than 5'11", probably more like 5'10" without shoes.
Mr Luis said on 6/May/05
That can be true, that site says also that Moore was 6'1 at his peak. Connery was always two inches taller than Moore.
Connery was also a little taller than the 6'2 Q, and Moore was shorter than Desmond Llewelyn. I'm talking about the Bond movies of the 70, in the 80 Bond movies, Moore was exact the same height as Desmond LLewelyn.
Moore was 1,84 cm at is peak and Connery 1,89/ 1,90 cm.
Viper652 said on 5/May/05
The James Bond Tailors say he was 6-1 and a half at his peak.
JUSTMATT said on 5/May/05
I think he is 6.2 because I saw him near an italian introducer who is for sure 6.2 and they were the same height
sam said on 5/May/05
I believe based on his films, he was slightly over 6'2" as a young man, probably about an inch shorter these days.
Anonymous said on 5/Apr/05
My Grandfather (who was 6 feet at that time) meeted im 1980, and he sayd that he was really tall,(something of 6.3 he sayd), but maybe he has shrunks
JJ said on 27/Mar/05
You guys got it right last time with the 6'1 1/2 so why change it based on a dodgy measurement from the 50's?
Connery is about 6'1 these days, no more.
CelebHeights Editor said on 18/Mar/05
I accidentally deleted a comment, but it mentioned that "Connery's autobiography lists his height as 189cm (about 6ft 2.4), as he was measured in his early 20's for bodybuilding contests." Thanks to whoever submitted this.

I think Mr Connery is more like 6'. I saw him a few years ago at a local theatre and he seemed a lot shorter than my six four(6'4').
