He was definitely 6'5" in his youth. In his senectitude, he was around 6'4" up until his death in 2003.

He doesn’t look that tall imho. 6’4 probably

In an episode of Danger Man, he looked about 2, maybe 2.5 inches taller than Patrick McGoohan, but maybe due to camera angles. He could have been a legit 6'5. He had a great body. An all-around good looking man. I wonder if he had some Native American in him.

In an interview, he said that Shatner and some of the other Star Trek cast members stood on boxes when they had to do shots with him.

Recently saw Blacula for the first time, he certainly gives a tall impression, didn't know he was added but I had guess 6'4" based on appearance.

Something like 1 in 500 when you really think about it would make more sense. I mean I can only think of a handful of guys in 6'5-6'7" range in my town of 50,000.

I saw the chart you're speaking about.I think it takes the average as 5'9.3 (possibly overall average for US/UK?)
Anyways while many figures seem fair 5'9 at 45,7% 5'11 at 72,8% and so on,it seems the end of the chart is somehow unrealistic,6'6 at 99,9% is unlikely that would mean 1 out of 1000 guys in US is 6'6+ hmmm,too much for a maximum 200,000 persons at 6'6+ worldwide.

doubt it arch maybe 1 out 500 at most and that's only for developed countries mainly europe and US.
I would be surprised if there is more than 500,000 persons over 6'5 worldwide.

I'd think it's more something like 1 in 150 men who are a legit 6'5" but I don't know the exact percentiles.
Tunman said on 13/Feb/15
1 out of 80 at 6'5 is unlikely maybe at 6'3.5-4.
I noticed there are also several guys over 7' well it's unlikely to get 1 out 4000 guys at that mark let alone many
We could say that height was a main factor for them to become celebs (Big show,khali,Andre...)
[Editor Rob: yes the database has many people 6ft 4 and over. Probably a very large percentage more than from a random 4000 men, because you also have these big wrestlers, big actors and big Basketballers.]
Arch Stanton said on 13/Feb/15
Yes if you sampled an average 4000 men I reckon you'd probably get nearer 25-30 men at a legit 6'5" than 51, I'm not quite sure the percentiles of 6'5" guys, but I know I've read that roughly something like 0.8 men in 100 is a legit 6'4" or something like that. Even at 1 in 100 4000 would be 1 in 40.

Yes agreed Steve, he had a fantastic voice, in fact if I could pick a voice it would be something like his!!
Steve said on 12/Feb/15
He made Vic Mature look like a shrimp in Demetrius & the Gladiators. 6'5' sounds correct.

What a great voice Marshall had. What they used to call a radio voice.
Arch Stanton said on 12/Feb/15
Just looking we've passed the 50 mark with 6'5" guys now with 51! There's really not many legit 6'5" guys about in everyday places, only the odd one or two in a crowd. 100 guys at 6'5" on here would be quite something, sure we'll reach that eventually, but we don't want to intentionally cherry pick them of course!
[Editor Rob: which if you sampled 4000 men in any city you wouldn't get that many men that tall. The database does have a much higher proportion of males 6ft 2 and over in the 4000 odd men.]
Arch Stanton said on 12/Feb/15
Thanks. Yeah, I was thinking he looked a legit big 6'4-6'5" guy in Demetrius. That comparison with Mature he could look the full 6'5". The Boston Strangler is one I've long been meaning to see, one of those I really should have seen but haven't!
