Spot on I think, though his thin build and presence could certainly give the illusion of 5 ft 11 range at times.

Secondo me il picco poteva essere 178 cm
Editor Rob: peak height 178cm?

Brando was told to wear lifts in "Mutiny on the Bounty" so he would look in line with Howard.

I'd say that next to Brando, Howard looks more than an inch taller.

Always looked a strong 5'10". He was taller than Brando in Mutiny on the Bounty.
Arch Stanton said on 5/Jan/15
Yeah you're right. 5'10 ish, my mistake. Most of the films I've seen him in I wasn't paying too much attention to his height at the time!! Once upon a time he was one of those actors I shamefully didn't know! I did think in the Offence he could look 5'11 range, perhaps it was camera trickery or posture from Connery, I dunno.

Added those photos before the downgrade was posted, obviously! I would buy 177-178 cm peak for him.
Arch, does he really seem like a near six foot guy to you w/ Cotten in The Third Man. Howard is bending a bit in the photo I posted but in the film I think Cotten can look around 3+ inches taller IMO. He also appears edged out by William Holden I think.

I think he looks 5'10" range, a weak 5'10" at times but probably a tad over it at peak.

Great actor. Don´t see him at that height though. 1`77 fits him better

With 5'5 Sidney Lumet and Connery stooped over while filming The Offence. He really looked a strong 5'11 in that film I thought. Baffled at how short he looks in the Sea Wolves pic!!
[Editor Rob: he could look anywhere in 5ft 10 up to 11 at most, maybe 5ft 10 is a safer bet for him.]

Wow check out this gem of a photo Rob/Sam Click Here Roger Moore, Niven, Peck and Howard!!
Something doesn't look right there!! Howard looks 5'9" tops there and Moore looks 6'4" LOL!

Nice one, can you squeeze in The Offence, Ryan's Daughter and Battle of Britain? Gandhi and Superman perhaps not quite substantial enough roles for inclusion. The Offence I think must be the best Connery film I've seen perhaps with the exception of Goldfinger. I still highly recommend Ryan's Daughter if you've not seen it yet. Been a while since I saw Father Goose, can't remember how he fared with Grant.

Actually I'd thought he could look nearer 6 ft at times. With Connery in The Offence I thought he was looking around 182. Towered Claude Rains in The Passionate Friends. Not sure he was just a 180cm 5'11", perhaps Sam feels the same.
