I saw a clip of Bennett from 1966 and he looks noticeably taller than he did with Sinatra there. He did look close to 5'8 in his prime. I haven't seen him and Sinatra together when younger. Sinatra's footwear looks very suspect in that 1988 one.

@Rob. You sure Bennett was the same height as Sinatra? Click Here That's from 1988, Sinatra 73 and Bennett 62. If Bennett was still 5'7.5 there Sinatra is looking an easy 5'9. Now Sinatra's footwear looks a bit sus, could be wearing lifts but he gives the impression of being a taller man than Bennett and in his 70s at the time.

they looked reasonably close, I think even Tony by that age lost height.

5 ft 7.5 peak is reasonable, around average for his generation. Sadly a few months back he announced that he's got Alzheimers. If it can get a guy as active and health conscious as Tony it can get anyone eventually. Still looks incredible for 94 though has got more frail in the last year or two for obvious reasons. Listen to the album he did with Bill Evans in 1975, one of the best vocal jazz albums in my opinion. Recommended listening:! Click Here

My dad's peak height was the same as Tony's. But today, my dad is definitely taller than him by at least two inches, so this makes my dad's current height be possibly 5ft 7 or still as his peak of 5ft 7.5 as of today.

ALL those less than 5'8" guys wear 2-3" lifts in their shoes! Or "elevator shoes!" It's very common in Hollywood, where camera techniques can make them look MUCH taller! Aging doesn't usually make you lose more than about 3 inches, unless, you have some kind of spinal compression like scoliosis or dowager's hump, and a couple of other physical anomalies that can occur with aging.

@rob: do you think he is 171 in the pic here?
Editor Rob
not in this photo, he was surely 1.5 inches less than peak then.
hej said on 14/May/17
I can't see how this is even close to accurate. Back around 2011, I walked past him (and a much, much younger lady friend) in the Venetian. I was wearing tennis shoes and am 5'5 barefoot, and I was clearly 1-2 inches taller than he was.
Sandy Cowell said on 6/Apr/17
Doesn't Tony look infinitely younger than his years?
I saw his performance with Amy Winehouse, and there were a couple or so inches difference between the two - not many.
Haven't I seen this guy appearing as a performer in a Mafia-based film, as himself! It certainly impressed me!
Peak height - 5ft7.5
Today - 5ft6

This guy just turned 90 on Friday. I saw him three years ago at The Hollywood Bowl and he was fantastic. He may have lost height - but he hasn't lost talent.

Lady gaga is 155....tony was standing at her side and looked shorter than her...well in conclusion..tony is 153...omg
Arch Stanton said on 7/Jul/15
This guy really is one of the last living legends of that swing era though. Everytime I see him perform I feel lucky that he's still with us. Such a guy seems odd in the 21st century, he belongs on the Las Vegas Strip in 1955 LOL but I greatly respect that he's trying to encourage jazz to live on and one of the reasons he's working with Gaga is to do his part for the younger generations.
Arch Stanton said on 13/Feb/15
I think he was calling his height in shoes, perhaps rounded up slightly. He looked roughly about what you listed him at peak, might have scraped 5'8" earlier in the day perhaps.
Arch Stanton said on 28/Jan/15
Astounding that he's 88!!! Healthiest and happiest looking 88 year old in the business. He looks better than most 20 years younger!
Arch Stanton said on 28/Jan/15
Rob can you add a photo and update with American jazz singer, and add songs like "I Left My Heart in San Francisco", "The Lady is a Tramp", "It Don't Mean a Thing if it Ain't Got That Swing", "Anything Goes", "Body and Soul", "The Way You Look Tonight", and "The Shadow of Your Smile".
Editor Rob
he did claim to be 5ft 9

never over weak 5'7
PastaJoe said on 27/Aug/13
Tony is a solid 5' 6 inches in his prime. Today, as a senior citizen minus 1 inch.

Bennett was about five feet six in his younger days.

Here he is with five seven Frank Sinatra:

And with five eleven Bruce Willis:

And here's Bennett with five eight Robert De Niro:

I think that today Bennett has dropped to about five five.

He is shorter than me I am 5'10 and when I was beside him at the Grammy's he was much shorter I'd say he's about 5'4 or 5'5 I think he's shrieking though.
The Big KC said on 8/Oct/12
When I met him in Palm Springs, he was about 5'7" or so. I'm 5'8" and shrinking...and he was a bit shorter.
Christine said on 13/Feb/12
He was standing next to Carrie Underwood at the Grammy's last night and looked shorter than her. She's only 5'3". Couldn't see her shoes, since she was wearing a long gown. If she had on 5" heels, that would make her 5'8" and he looked shorter. Maybe he's shrinking.
Ciccio said on 29/Nov/11
Definitely 5'8.
@nathan said on 1/Oct/11
oh really..5'8? He was about 1 inch shorter than 5'6-5'7 Jon Stewart,
nathan said on 8/Apr/11
I shook his hand and looked straight in his eyes hes 5'8
mcfan said on 14/Sep/08
looked about 3.5-4 inches shorter than Tom Jones in 1969 on Tom's show.
Anonymous said on 9/Jan/07
He looks a full 2.5" shorter than Glenn. Maybe 3", Glenn's leaning and Tony has taller hair. I would say more like 5'5" now from the pic. Probably 5'6.5 - 5'7 at his peak.
leonari said on 11/Dec/06
Then please give him the 5'6" Rob and 5'7" as peek height (like for James Caan). thanks
Brad said on 10/Dec/06
5' 6" when I saw him 20 years ago. I like Jimmy Roselli better.
Anthony said on 7/Dec/06
5'7 seems right. A true legend.
sf said on 25/Jan/06
Yea, Rob, but he doesn't look close to 5'7" in that picture. Standing back to back, I'd give Glenn probably 3 to 4 inches over Tony. Remember, sometimes it's harder to seed disparities in height until people stand back to back. There's no way he's 5'7" there, unless wearing his "lowers"...
Glenn said on 24/Jan/06
he was 5-7 and still is.I dont know why this photo came out like this.bad posture?
sf said on 24/Jan/06
Are you kidding me? In that picture, he doesn't look any taller than 5'6". Hell, Glenn's leaning, and he's still got Tony beat by 2 inches. without the lean, I'd say 3. How can you have him at 5'8"?
Glenn said on 12/Jan/06
in the younger years maybe.he's 5-7 now.
Mr. R said on 12/Jan/06
He was on Conan around Christmas, and looked like a dwarf next to the host. He even made a joke about him getting shorter or Conan getting taller. At this point, I would say about 5'7".
