I really believe that a young Sid Caesar was over 6', probably close to 6'1". In your Show of Shows, he looked fairly substantial - he lost a lot of weight later on and his later posture was pretty bad. In the 1967 film The Busy Body, he's a good inch shorter than Jan Murray, who's listed at 6' almost everywhere and barely taller than 5'10" Dom DeLuise. By 1983 he didn't look that much taller than 5'9" Eddie Murphy in this obit photo: Click Here (scroll down to SNL photo)

Caesar was often more likely under six feet than over it; he was more than five years younger than 6’1.25” David Tomlinson and more than 3cm shorter than him in The Fiendish Plot of Dr. Fu Manchu. However, Caesar was 57 years old at the time, so maybe he could have started to shrink a fraction by then. Six feet peak is about right.

Great listing, Rob. Still looked a six footer by the time of The Fiendish Plot of Dr. Fu Manchu. Perhaps Dick Shawn and Terry-Thomas were stronger six footers in It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World.

I do think that Caesar is more likely in the six foot range. As aforementioned, he looked a bit under Carl Reiner. It’s possible that Caesar could’ve been six foot and a small amount of change.

This looks pretty accurate. I've also read close to 6ft 2 before, but it's not plausible. He was clearly close to 2 inches below Carl Reiner in the 1950s

I read 6ft1 and 6ft2
