Thanks! He really could look 6'1" at peak such as in movies like The Black Cat and Dracula...he lost height and curved his spine arguably even earlier than Boris Karloff...one would be hard-pressed to say that Lugosi seems taller than Karloff for sure in The Body Snatcher.

Rob, Murders in the Rue Morgue, Island of Lost Souls, The Black Cat, Ninothcka and Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein, could you add these to his credits?

In Invisible Ray, he towers over Karloff, who was listed at 5' 11"

Why is he mentioned as being Hungarian? He was born in Romania. Anyway, this height listing seems fair.
[Editor Rob: in late 1800's european countries weren't all the same as today, back then wasn't he born in what was then Hungary... ]
