Clear 3 inches on 6ft3 Ebsen.If Ebsen was 6ft3 then Parker was an easy 6ft6.

I remember watching them and knowing about Arness's height but not Parker's so I was shocked that it had such a towering guy in another role.

Saw a Disney Show on Youtube with Buddy Epsen and Fess Parker talking about their Davy Crocket show. Buddy said that when the show began in 1954 he was 6'3 and 1/4" and Fess was 6'5 and 1/2"

I guessed Fess is somewhat 6'5 because Jim Arness may be listed at 6'7 because he was listed with shoes. My opinion is Jim is actually 6'6. Most tall chaps in Hollywood are measured with shoes so an inch here & there is pretty common.

I'll tell you the truth, daddy cool, you may have got me there with superior research. And good for you.

There's quite a difference between Arness and Parker in "Them" movie.

Parker is tho wearing slippers in this scene and he allways slouched in his movies. I truly believe Parker was a legit 6'6 guy. An inch shorter than Arness.

Fess Parker never looked an inch less than six foot six. You can see him in a bit part in the giant ant movie Them where he stands next to James Arness (credibly listed at six foot seven), and there is little difference between them. Or you can see him in the Adventures of Davy Crockett with Buddy Ebsen (six foot three),and Parker is easily three inches taller. When he stands with Steve McQueen in Hell Is for Heroes, he looks like a tree.

I think how a shot is framed automatically calls attention to the height of people. Unless a lead man can give being shorter an edge, as Cagney did, we lend more focus and more pure rooting to the taller actor. Victor Mature knew this and blew up at directors who positioned him either with taller actors or ones standing on higher ground. John Wayne began to see, as he got older and was less the romantic interest, that his being "the big man" ensured the continuance of his stardom, so he wore lifts. So from the audience's viewpoint this is understandable, and the actor is thinking in business terms.

Good call Rob, if he was eye to eye with Napier must be this.
