If Sean Connery was six two in "Doctor No," Jack Lord must have been more like an even six foot.

Nah less than a 1''

Rob, you need to add Dr. No to his credits.

Looked at least 1in below Connery

"a young christopher walken looks taller than him"

I'm not seeing Walken as taller than Lord in the walking scene, would have said he was a tad shorter if anything. And holy cow, a young Walken looks like the spitting image of his impersonator Jay Mohr :)

He looks a weak 6'1" next to Gary Cooper in Man of the West. 185 is OK but no more.

Ok, this guy is strong evidence that Connery was near 6"3". In Dr. No. when he frisks him theres easily more than 1in. But this guy was described from 6"0" to 6"2" and could look close to both of them at times.

Jack Lord was 6"0.75"(185cm) peak and Sean Connery 6"2.25"(189cm) peak, Rob?

About 1in shorter than 6ft2.5 Connery in Dr. No.

Lord definitely wore lifts, if you pause any 50 DVD on Jacks` boots, the angle of the foot in the "boot" is noticable, however I reckon he was easy 6`1" barefoot at his peak, but just felt he needed the "Boost" to make him around the 6`3" mark as in some scenes he does seem to tower over Danno who I reckon around the 5`7" mark.

Been watching the last season of Hawaii Five-O recently. William Smith was a regular on the last season, and he is somewhere between 6'1" to 6'2". Jack Lord appears about an inch taller than Smith in most of the episodes, so if the rumors were true that Lord wore 2" lifts, that would put his real height at between 6' to 6'1".

Jack Lord was pretty tall, I know. =) That dude was an awesome one.

I was just looking at Jack Lord's in the movie data base profile and there's a pic with him and Sean Connery standing beside each other in "Dr.No". Correct me if I'm wrong but Jack looks a good 3inches shorter than Sean. The angle might be off a little but does anyone see what I see....looking at this pic he doesn't look more than 5'11".

I just received the second suit I won on ebay and this pair of shoes does NOT have lifts in them. Maybe he wore lifts on TV when his co-stars were as tall or taller than him so he didn't look short and he wore shoes without lifts on shows where everyone was shorter than him.

I'm guessing JL was 6' or 6'1", I'm making an educated guess because I recently purchased two of his suits he wore on Hawaii 5-0. I really wanted them being a H5-0 fan but more importantly the suits included his boots and they are my size (i knew the clothes wouldn't fit being i'm a little bigger than he was). I was wearing the boots and they have a high heel and it was hard for me to walk around in. I was kinda disappointed because I wouldn't be able to wear them for fear of breaking my neck. My neighbor came over and I showed her the suit and told her about the boots. She looked at them, felt inside and informed me there were lifts inside. Sure enough he wore lifts. I measured them at the thickest part around the heel and they were one and a half inches thick. So if he was "officially" 6 ft 1.5 in then in reality he was 6 feet tall. But most of that height was leg because the pants have a 35 inch inseam. I'm 6' tall and my inseam is 32 inches

6'2 seeme very likely as he did look quite a bit taller than Elvis, but shoes can't be seen in the pic and it was the era of cubans.

There is a picture of Jack Lord with Elvis and he looks 2 inches taller than Elvis. So 6 ft 1 for Jack lord makes sense.

I knew Jack Lord...He was TALL...6 feet 2 inches is correct...He was taller when wearing his trademark boots...

Hawaii 5-0 was recently released on DVD and in watching these episodes from 1968/1969 Jack Lord looks to be around 6'2". He is very thin which makes him look taller. Some shots of his feet reveal shoes that may have lifts in them, but nothing excessive (think current Jerry Lewis footwear).

I just don't buy the reports that he was 6'0" or even below. The height differential between him and most of the actors, including the guest stars, on this show is too great.

Book 'em at 6'2".

I've read that he was actually pretty short, about 5'10" and they covered it up during Hawaii Five-O. He is described in his biography as a 6'2", but he was actually 6'... now I'm not sure, but I believe if he really is short, max 5'11"... no shorter than this!

I find that interesting BLT.why would there be a short rumor on him?

I heard a radio show a few years ago, in which the host said that Jack Lord had a secret--that he was actually very short and went to great lengths to cover it up. He didn't say HOW short he was,though. And 6'-6'1" is hardly "very short." He looks pretty tall to me, on Hawaii 5-0. But in the movie The Court Martial of Billy Mitchell, he is a couple of inches shorter than Gary Cooper, who was 6'2"-6'3". So, I would say that he was around 6'-6'1". Also, in Dr. No, I thought he looked the same height as Sean Connery. In an early scene, when both are sitting together on a little boat, they both appear to be the exact same height, and both their feet could be seen in the boat.

So, who knows? But I don't classify 6'-6'1" as being "very short." I do know he knocked 10 years off his age, in his official biography, and THAT is the great "secret" I thought the radio host had originally been alluding to. he certainly didn't look 42 to Connery's 32, in Dr. No; in fact, he had fewer wrinkles and lines in his face than Connery did.

Jack was closer to 6'1" and was about an inch shorter than Sean Connery in Dr. No.

By the way, Chris Walken is well-over 6'. I'd say at least 6'1". At least that's how tall he looked when I saw him. He was a good two inches taller than me. And he's a very skinny 6'1". I doubt he weighs more than 160 lbs. soaking wet.

Jack is probably 6'1" in shoes.
DB said on 8/Dec/05
He was in reality 5'9". I read that in a biography.
Mr. Klaus said on 23/Sep/05
In Dr. No he looks 2 inches shorter than Sean Connery

I also found this,
An FBI file regarding a stalker lists his height as 6' 0", 2 inches shorter than his official biography.

In a 1970 episode of Hawaii 5-0, he looks shorter than guest star Christopher Walken who is six feet tall.
