Comment on the Height of James Brolin

Didn't he claims 6'4" or have that height listed for him back in the day? I think a lot of 6'3" range actors try to claim 6'4" for themselves at some point.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Sep/15
Arch, I agree. He could look close to 6ft4. A strong 6ft3 peak is possible for him. Today I think he might be nearer 6ft2.

He's 75 but looks barely 50...
Arch Stanton said on 1/Sep/15
I'll have to watch Skyjacked and Capricorn One to see how he fared with Heston and Elliott Gould. That would be good for comparison.
Arch Stanton said on 1/Sep/15
Rob see also 1 hr 32 to the end of that film. Bisset's in heels and he still looks a good 8 inches taller at the end I think.
Arch Stanton said on 1/Sep/15
Rob see 25 to 28 minutes him walking about from Cape Town Affair in 1967. Click Here To me he could pass for weak 6'4. Clearly easily 6'3, you might be undercutting him a bit, I guess 6'3 is still a big height though.
Arch Stanton said on 1/Sep/15
In Amityville he could look a strong 6 ft 3 type of guy but long hair with quite a lot of bounce in it could make him look almost 6 ft 4.
Arch Stanton said on 1/Sep/15
Rob can you add a photo and films Capricorn One, Gable and Lombard, The Cape Town Affair, Catch Me If You Can, The Reagans, The Car, Skyjacked and Von Ryan's Express and TV series Marcus Welby, M.D., Hotel and Pensacola: Wings of Gold?
[Editor Rob: I'd forgotten he was in those TV shows.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Mar/15
Rob, maybe 6ft2 flat now?

That's pretty good going for 74.

Rob, would you say he's lost a bit of height now at the age of 73. He might be more 6'1.5"-2" range today.

[Editor Rob: he could be down that range yeah]

"Peak height was 6ft 3.25in (191cm)"
"James Brolin's height is 6ft 2in (188cm)"

Looked near 6ft4 in his prime.

Glenn, That was a wonderful report on James Brolin - sorry I didn't get back to you sooner - I've been away from the site so long I forgot I'd even posted! That situation with security made me think that the hype and frenzy over these celebs sometimes creates an environment in which it's hard for them to act like real people. It was gratifying that Brolin turned out to be genuinely nice. Viper: "The big question is was he ever 6-4?" Yes, I think if you look at "The Car" (1977) he was stated as 6'4" in those days and looked it, and in the photo with Glenn I just don't see that he's lost much height - maybe an inch max. Observe that he's slightly behind Glenn, is slouching just a little, and that
his eyeline is almost imperceptibly tilted downwards. You guys who have him at 6'2" are being a little stingy with the man's stature. 6'3" seems dead-on.
guy said on 10/Oct/07
He seems like one of those guys thats just big all round. He doesn't seem lanky or leggy like a lot of tall guys. Kind of built like a bear.
glenn said on 8/Oct/07
exactly viper.great pic tom.i didnt post that below rob.find out who that was and ban.the come to think of it post.
guy said on 8/Oct/07
He is s tanding behind Glenn. I might allow another inch if they were side by side. I still think 6'2".

[Editor Rob: actually I remember seeing a recentish film with him in it, that steve coogan dvd, his demeanour could be a bit slouchy nowadays.]
Viper said on 8/Oct/07
The big question is was he ever 6-4.
venus said on 7/Oct/07
James is what in his 70's. I used to watch him and Robert Young in Marcus Welby. He was tall, he looked 6'4 to me. He has shrunk since then. I give him 6'2 right now according to the pic above.
glenn said on 7/Oct/07
oh i agree misha.if i say he is 6-3,then its just the pic decieving.
glenn said on 7/Oct/07
misha-im good,you? interesting you bring up the brolin encounter cause i was just as curious as you are being barbara 99 percent of the time doesnt pose and 70 percent doesnt sign.i was afraid it would rub off on brolin and im a huge fan of his mainly from his appearence in the amityville horror.i couldve sworn i had a bad report from a friend of mine,but do remember he posed for one of my maybe im imagining the bad report.then when i had my minute or 2,twice this night with brolin,i realised the bad report couldnt be further from the of the sweetest men i ever same actual guys that sometimes get in my way)tried there best to block me,but brolin went around them to make sure he posed with me.then after the event,same deal,he is walking down a street,security yelling at me that its enough,brolin notices im 10 feet behind him trying to catch up,he then breaks through security to sign my amityville horror soundtrack vinyl album.i knew id get an interesting respone by asking him the following question "how often do you sign one of these?",he then shocks and delights me by saying "i actually never saw one of those".i was pleased that as usual,i bring out an item a celeb usually doesnt sign.i usually get the same reply.its great when someone you admire is so nice to you.they should all be the same.

It is ludicrous to estimate James Brolin's height as slightly over 6'1" based on this photo. Just compare the photos of Glenn (Hello, my friend - how are you?) with Arlo Guthrie and Michael Caine, who are both probably around 6'1" now - Brolin towers over these guys. David (6/13/06), who is 6'1.5", stood right next to him and thought he was 6'4', So please dump these estimates of 6'1"+. Brolin is also slouching. My guess is he's not substantially under 6'3",
the height that Glenn, standing right there, estimated him to be. I'm also a little curious - Glenn, what sort of person did he strike you as being? I always liked him but was puzzled that he could marry an egomaniac prima donna like Barbra Streisand.
saga said on 7/Oct/07
glenn is leaning too. He looks 186cm so i give him 188cm (6'2") with good posture.
danius said on 7/Oct/07
his back is hunched, hes leaning or something, 6'1 there, add 2 inches and ugget 6'3, terrible posture.
idc said on 6/Oct/07
he looks 6 1"/2" in that picture
ed said on 6/Oct/07
Compare the picture of George Hertzberg who is 6'5'' standing next to a 5'8'' person with this one.(Click Here) Hertzbergs chin comes to the top of the head of a 5'8'' person. James Brolins chin comes to the eye level of a 5'8'' person so there must be a difference of 4-5 inches betwenn Hertzberg and Brolin. That would mean Brolin is nowadays more like 6'1.25''.
guy said on 6/Oct/07
Refer to James Herzberg for a 6'4.5" height. Nothing close. James looks almost sub 6'2" here.
guy said on 6/Oct/07
Looks big here. Seems more a 6'2" guy. Look at his eyeline to the top of Glenn's head. He is definately not 6'4" here that is for sure.
glenn said on 6/Oct/07
maybe he was 6-4 in youth.hmmm.
derek said on 6/Oct/07
I've always seen him listed as 6'4
dwight-howard 6\\\'11 said on 6/Oct/07
he's 6'3 got it
Franco said on 5/Oct/07
doesnt look 190cm at all....i see 187-188cm max.
Derek said on 5/Oct/07
Looks closer to 6'2".
glenn said on 5/Oct/07
i felt 6-3.i couldve sworn i read 6-3 as well.6-4? was he really mentioned as that?
derek said on 5/Oct/07
i think his peak height was 6'4
Cairo86 said on 5/Oct/07
Not both are standing upright. We must consider Glenn has his body in front of James. As we see it 6ft 1, 1.5 seems reasoned. Compensate for photo angle and 6ft 2 is better.
Matt Thomas said on 5/Oct/07
Nah looks 6'3 here
danius said on 5/Oct/07
Schnouzer Breath said on 5/Oct/07
Looks big and imposing (hey, he was PW in bigtop Pewee, after all).
Viper said on 5/Oct/07
I thought he was 6-4.
David said on 13/Jun/06
Having stood right next to Brolin, I will go with 6ft 4 in. (I am 6ft 1.5in)
