Had about 0.5-1 inch on Eastwood in Eiger Sanction, although i think he may have had slight footwear George 6'4.25, Clint 6'3.75.

Dwarfs Cary Grant in scene in lift in Charade. Always seems an incredibly nice humble guy.

Near 3in on Jeff Bridges in Thunderbolt & Lightfoot and edged out Clint Eastwood.

He still looked near 6ft4 in Naked Gun beside Leslie Nielsen.
Shredo said on 21/Dec/14
George was huge, I would bet he was over 6'4 in his prime no doubt. And would go further by saying he stayed in the 6'4 range long into his career.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Oct/14
Rob, is a fraction over 6ft4 possible?
[Editor Rob: yes, maybe it has always been possible.]
Sam said on 22/Apr/14
A fraction over 6'4" is possible, maybe like 6'4.25".
Editor Rob said on 21/Apr/14
Saw another quote from him in 1976 where he did say "I'm over 6 feet 4"

@Arch Stanton
Probably In lifts in charade as his character was meant to be big
Arch Stanton said on 26/Oct/13
He really looks huge in Charade and 6'4.5" looks very possible in that film IMO.

Kennedy was taller than James Stewart in one of those airplanes movies. And he was about four inches taller than Nielsen in The Naked Gun. No less than 6`4 in his prime

From what I recall, Kennedy was about 1.5-2 inches over Simpson in The Naked Gun.

I think George was about 6'3", maybe 6'3.5" in his prime. He looked to be about the same height as Clint Eastwood and about an inch taller than Charlton in the movies they were in together. Heston is about about 6'2.5".

I seem to recall George Kennedy on the Johnny Carson show saying that he was 6' 4". This was when his TV show "Sarge" was on, in which he played a priest/ex-cop. Carson asked if he had played high school football, & Kennedy said he had been given no choice in the matter, that guys his size were FORCED to play football in high school.

I just watched an episode of Charmed that she was in (Don't know the name of it but its the one where she is vanquished and Phoebe and Piper find out Leo is an Avitar) and she and Milano have many scenes together wearing 3 inch heels both and there really wasn't much difference between them at all- 3 inches max!!!!
