Comment on the Height of Sam Elliott

First saw him in "Frogs" in 1972 and I was thinking 186cm a strong 6'1" ... reckon his 'tash would also be about 6'1" as well...

Folks, I have a photo of Mr Elliott standing next to my husband. Both were wearing dress shoes with about 1/2 inch heels. Sam has taller hair, but their eyes are at exactly the same level. My husband is 6 feet, 3/4 inches tall with bare feet. You can pretty much rest assured that any actor or athlete is going to be an inch or two shorter that is widely listed.

Rob, I think this guy was never more than 6'1.5" could you take a look at him and consider a downgrade?

He is almost 6 ft tall no taller .

I found a picture where he looks shorter than Ben Johnson, listed as 6'2" on the internet and getting up there in age by that point. He also looks at least 3 inches shorter than Tom Selleck. To be fair, I don't know if Elliott's footing is inferior to the other two.

i watched him play a game of darts in Dick's Bar in La Porte, In. on a Saturday about noon when they were filming the movie Prancer in the area.
I'm 5'10 and played basketball all my life and I can tell you in his cowboy boots at least he was all of 6' 4."

5ft9.5-5ft10 is garbage for Swayze and you know it. He was max 2in shorter than Keanu Reeves in Point Break.

I don't buy Swayze's listing of 5'10.5". I think he was a little under that TBH, more like 5'9.5"- 5'10" range. But I do think Sam Elliott's peak of 6'2" is a good one.

I watched "Roadhouse" today. What a great movie! Here are a couple of Sam and Patrick together...the most efficient bouncer tag team ever! :-)

I just can't see under six feet for Elliott. He looks pretty close in height to Jeff Bridges and (though not the best picture admittedly) clearly has some height on Peter Weller. On the hand, in his 60s he was at least an 1"-1.5" under Eric Bana. I think something close to 6'1" peak works.

Sam was shorter than Swayze in Roadhouse!!?? Rik, no offense, dude, but you need glasses. Look at the scene when the shake hands, Elliott is CLEARLY 3 inches or so taller than Swayze. Check Sam out in The Sacketts. Sam is only a couple iches shorter than 6'4" Selleck. Sam was about 6'2" peak, give or take a half-inch.

I'm watching Roadhouse right now. Elliott is about 4-5 inches taller than Swayze. Elliott's heals are about 1" bigger than Swayze's. Swayze 5'-9". Elliott about 6'-1" to 6'-1.5". No doubt.

5ft11, 5ft10.....5ft8!

The number of persistant trolls is astonishing.

I stood next to him at the ice cream parlour in Malibu. He was with his family, dressed in surfer shorts. I heard that unmistakable voice. He was complaining about his bad back. I'd say he was 5' 8" tops.
Rik said on 2/Sep/13
He was shorter than Patrick Swayze in Road House. Come on. He's 5' 10" max. If you didn't see the BMovie Road House, then I guess you go higher, but you will be wrong. LMAO @ 6' 02" :D

How about adding Sam's wife, KATHERINE ROSS ("The Graduate" and "Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid" to your site. She's 5'5" tall. :-)
Michael B said on 25/Jun/13
I met him at a film festival a couple of years ago and he was the same height as me 5'11"

Elliott is slightly shorter than Bill Paxton. Maybe 6' max. No way he was ever 6'2".
Brad said on 7/Apr/07
I always thought this guy was 6' 2".

David James Elliott is 194-195cm.

ralph said on 30/Jul/06
i was in the air force with sam elliott, and he is probably 5'11" at most. Tom Selleck is 6'4", and chuck connors is close to 6'7".
Donna said on 26/Apr/06
Sam bought a place in Brownsville Or. Ans I have seen him and he is taller than my hubby who is 6ft. So there!
TNTinCA said on 3/Apr/06
He did appear to be a good 3-4 inches taller than Swayze in Roadhouse. Did look close to Eric Bana's height in Hulk as well. I can see 6'2" for him.

Click Here, says elliot is a six footer

Hey Mike, I understand about camera angles, but it doesn't look like the angle of this photo could account for the apparent disparity between Connors and Selleck. Check it again.
mike c said on 9/Nov/05
come on gramps! it's the camera angle!try it yourself..pose two people who are basically the same height....have one step back a few feet..and at a right angle...shorter!

I saw Sam on hte Paramount lot when they were making We Were Soldiers. He walked past me in his soldier gear. He was a little taller - I would say maybe 6'.5". I met Jeff Bridges last year, and he was a solid 6'1".
Anonymous said on 27/Jun/05
No way in hell is this guy 6'2". I saw him standing next to Jeff Bridges in a movie once, and Bridges had 2 inches on him. No taller than 6.
