He was over 70 here and still looked about 6ft1. By now it's possible he's dropped a little more but peak I think there's a fairly good chance he was 6ft1¼-6ft1½

I always found it rather funny that Wolf was a German name when I was a child. Actually, my Mum worked for a German guy called Mr Wolf and he would collect stamps for me to send to the PDSA, which was very sweet of him. The child helpers were called Busy Bees. 🐝

This Mr Wolf 🕰🐺 looks every bit of 6ft1, possibly over that mark rather than under it.

Haven't seen Raiders in many years but I have a feeling this guy did more than just edge Harrison...
Darksol64 said on 24/Aug/22
Big forehead so he could be as high as maybe 6'0 and 1/2 in the pic. Very unlikely to measure below a legit 6 ft.

6'1 peak is near guaranteed, probably a little over. Will guess 6'1.25

weak 6'1 with Rob, peak height? probably
Editor Rob
I don't think at peak as tall as 6ft 2, although maybe 6ft 1.5 is a possible range.

He has the face of 6’4 guy
viper said on 13/May/21
Looks nowhere close to 6-1.

He looks 6-0 with Rob
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Apr/21
Looked 6ft1½ with a bit under 6ft1 probably but easily still clears 6ft
The5'11Dude said on 25/Jan/21
Looks 6'0.5-6'0.75 here, though I thought he certainly 6'1 range in Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Just under 6'1" with Big Rob there.
Mikester said on 3/Jan/21
doesn't seem to have the best of postures here and we can't look at the top of rob's head since there'shair covering the top of his cranium while kahler's hair is very thin. weak 6ft1 here would be my guess.

That’s not the height difference between 6’1 and 5’8
gigantes said on 27/Apr/20
He consistently looked a few inches taller face-to-face with 6'1" Jeremy Brett in "A Scandal in Bohemia" (1984).

@ Rob - How big is 🐺 Kahler's head compared to yours?
Editor Rob
In person I'd have said in 10 inch zone, though his head is a bit closer to Malcolm (who isn't in the middle of us). He was taller than the near 5ft 11.5 photographer, so at least 6ft range, I would give him somewhere around 6ft 1 peak and maybe 6ft and change that moment.
Nik said on 28/Feb/19
🐺 Kahler does look quite a bit short of 6'1"! I like his name!
Sandy Cowell said on 25/Dec/18
❄️ His name reminds me of a game we used to play as small kids called 'What's the time Mr Wolf?' 🐺

The kids would ask Mr Wolf what the time was, and he'd reply with whichever time he felt like. When he said 'Dinner Time!', all the kids would run away screaming! The one who was caught was OUT!

This Mr Wolf looks 6ft1 to me!
Nik said on 24/Jul/18
He looks more 6'0" than 6'1"!
Sandy Cowell said on 21/Jun/18
What a splendid name: WOLF! I wonder if he is! I learnt the (other!) meaning of the word from my Mum when I was still a little girl! She pronounced the word in a really funny way in her German accent and I used to take the ¶iss! 🐺

I can't see Wolf being as tall as 6ft1 now, so he gets 6ft0.25!
berta said on 17/May/18
he looks weak 184 strong 183 in the photo. he was no shorter than 185 peak. i think 186 is very possible for him. its 50/50
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Apr/18
If he was still clearing 6ft just a few years ago then that mark for his prime is definitely arguable. Certainly would have said it was possible next Ford
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Jan/18
He was in his 70's when you met him and still looked over 6ft...then there's no reason not to believe he had probably lost some height.

Here he is w/h George Harrison Click Here
Editor Rob
Yeah he could have lost an inch by age 70 when I met him.
World Citizen said on 25/Dec/17
Looks 6 ft 0.75
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Oct/17
Rob, could he have been 6ft1½ peak?

Still looks about 6ft1 today
Editor Rob
I met him a few years back, he was over 6ft, I am not sure about 6ft 1.5 peak, I wouldn't rule it out of course, might need to catch something again in the 80's and look for him.
Mickey said on 29/Aug/17
looks 6'0.75ft-6'1ft in the photo
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jul/17
Looked 186-187cm in Raiders
berta said on 22/Feb/17
i only seen him from saving private ryan and indiana jones and he looked tall.i guess he was not shorter than this in his peak could have been 186 i mena he looks even now at his age where many lost 1 inch like he is still close to 185.
MaskDeMasque said on 4/Jan/17
Looks 6 foot in the photo.
Kirsi said on 11/Oct/16
Hi I was told that he is 193 cm or 188 cm. Which is truth? I don t think he is only 185 cm tall. :)
Editor Rob
I think he is far from 193cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Sep/16
Rob, did he appear over 6ft when you met him?

If he's still 184cm today then 186cm peak is very possible. He was a bit taller than Ford in Raiders
Editor Rob
yes I thought he was taller than Malcolm the photographer that day by 2cm, so over 6ft flat.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jul/16
Probably still clears 6ft but maybe not quite a solid 6ft1 today. Peak possibly a strong 6ft1
NBAer said on 9/Feb/16
183-184 range IMO
LoganNoll1996 said on 10/Jun/15
Is it possible you could add a page on Ronald Lacey? He's the only major actor from Raiders of the Lost Ark that doesn't even have a page on this site.
Editor Rob
possible, I will try to have a look at him one day soon.

Kostas says on 10/Aug/14
1.82 is possible Rob?
[Editor Rob: he edged out the photographer who is around 182 himself]

he's taller than a legit 5'11.5"-5'11.75"...i would put him at 6'0.5" at least peak height it might be 6'1" or 6'1.25"
cole said on 13/Oct/14
About an inch longer head than you Rob?
Editor Rob
I don't know, if you are slightly nearer, your head can gain a fraction or more. I'd say it was possibly close to 10 inches.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Oct/14
Well if he only "edged out" a 182cm guy, then isn't 6ft1 still a bit much, Rob?
Editor Rob
I think by this time he may have lost a fraction of height, so a 6ft 1 peak seems reasonable.
judd said on 18/Sep/14
Kostas, he could be 6' in the pic, but with a bad posture...standing at full height i'll bet he edges 6'0.5"

"Peak height was 6ft 1.5in (187cm)"
truth said on 12/Nov/13
184cm is closer to the truth.
Connor 184cm said on 26/Jul/13
He looks 184cm with you rob, he doesnt quite look 5 inches taller than you more like 4.5.
otep90 said on 3/Jul/13
solid 5'11.5''
thc said on 20/May/13
His head is big and he has a eye level of a 6 footer(i mean, if a 6 footer with a normal eye level and an average size's head was standing next to him, both would have the impression they are the same height) , but 185 cm is a correct listing
Trent said on 26/Dec/12
This guy's upper head seems to be very long, so one could be thrown off.
Mathew said on 19/Dec/12
USYD says on 9/Dec/12
He looks to be 184cm but I don't think he's standing straight in this picture.


Yeah I see 184 cm here too.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Aug/12
Looks 6ft0.5/184cm tops, possibly even 6ft flat.
Josh B said on 20/Aug/12
Closer to 6ft than 6'1, compare him to the 6ft 1.5 Height Challenge guy.
