Where did this listing come from, Rob? I thought he was six feet, at least that's what they were pushing when enormous Brad Garrett played him. I can see from another look that he's only 1-1.5 inches taller than Paul Newman and Steve McQueen, but that still makes him near 5'11" I think.

Also, could you "best known for The Hustler, Gigot, Requiem for a Heavyweight, Skidoo, Smokey and the Bandit and his role as Ralph Kramden in The Honeymooners".
[Editor Rob: he might have been nearer that yeah in his 30-40's]

I caddied for The Great One one time back in the 60's. I'm 6'1 and he was easily three or four inches shorter. He was a GREAT loop, and funny as the devil on the course... his jokes could not be repeated on tv! :)

I remember as a boy watching footage of Gleason golfing with 5'10" Richard Nixon and Gleason looked a lot taller.

I recently watched "The Toy" in which a 63 year-old Gleason was the same height in shoes as Richard Pryor was in socks and a spidey uniform. I think by that age Gleason was under 5'9"

Now This one I wondered about--from watching 'Honeymooners' or 'Smokey and the Bandit', it's really hard to tell. I figured about 5-11 max.
