In 1982 Halloween III: Season of the Witch i thought Tom look a full 180cm at first glance and then change look more 5'10 1/2 so maybe 5'10 3/4 was legit. 5'9 now i supposed was true.

I'm surprised by this. I thought he was about 6ft. One of those guys where you recognise the face but probably wouldn't be able to name him, at least prior to the web.

Love this guy in the classic horror movies! I met him a year ago and could NOT believe his height because I always thought he looked a strong 6'-6'1 on film. I'm 5'8.5 and I was a little taller. He's about 5'8.

met him a month ago and 5'9" is dead on. I always thought he was quite a bit taller but I guess he is about 78 years old now.

Is in 5 of my favorite 80's horror movies: The Fog (1980), Creepshow (1982), Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982), Night of the Creeps (1986) and Maniac Cop (1988). Underrated actor. Hard to believe he's lost 2", but then again, for his age, that's about average height loss.

@the shredder: But Gibson was in cowboys for much of the film.

I think he looked around 5'11" at times in The Fog but yeah was probably sub-5'11" near Danny Glover, as to whether he's shorter looking than Mel Gibson at peak compared to Glover, I'm not sure.

Weird hes listed as 6-1 everywhere else. Hes so commanding on scren he gives the impression hes taller

he lost 5 cm? thats alot
people lose around 3cm on average
[Editor Rob: in the 80's I think he could look above 5ft 10, but then 7 years ago I thought when I seen him he wasn't that much taller than myself.]
