How tall is Oliver Hardy ?

Oliver Hardy height: 6ft 1in (185 cm)

From the Laurel and Hardy films. Maybe appeared slightly taller than he was due to his large frame. He certainly wasn't the 6ft 3 that some biographies claimed.

Many years ago,Tom Poston called Laurel And Hardy the greatest comedy team EVER! Now true,everybody's opinion differs,but this foxy To Tell The Truth veteran knew what he talked about! The secret as to why Laurel And Hardy is the greatest comedy team EVER is what Tom Poston mentioned about Laurel And Hardy taking simple everyday situations and using them to their advantage without resorting to cheap jokes. Take for example how Ollie sneezed a whole river away in Bonnie Scotland after he sniffed snuff! Or who could forget how in Laughing Gravy Stan and Ollie were booted out of their house in a blizzard because they smuggled a dog in their house what their landlord wouldn't permit,but the house was quarantined for diphtheria in the end! Or Ollie catching a terrible cold in They Go Boom and sneezing plaster on three cops who arrested Ollie for sneezing! That's why Laurel And Hardy are the greatest comics EVER!

Sounds accurate, but this would put Stan Laurel at 5'10. I think there was a 3 inch gap between the two.

Laurel must have been a strong 5'8 maybe 5:8.5 hard to tell he was so thin...

In all the well-taken pictures of the duo together, I can't really see more than a four inch difference between Stan and Ollie. So I'll say 5'9" for Stan (for now anyway).

It's funny cause I always think of Stan Laurel as the tall thin one. In reality Oliver Hardy was easily the tallest of the pair and very big build.
