Did we miss anyone?


    • 6 feet 3 inches was his peak height.

      He grew 11 inches from the age of 15 to 17.

      He said his height as “6 foot 3” in the biography “A Charmed Life” and also in a 1946 article, describing how during a 2 month break between filming he put on 20 pounds, “but I’m still only 185 pounds for my 6 feet 3.”

      A 1956 article mentioned him as being “six-foot-two-and-a half inch” and a 2002 biography described how “he shot up to six feet two and a half inches while in high school — growing eleven inches between the ages of fifteen and seventeen”.

  1. Sources differ. As he got to be older it was said he gained a bit of weight. And it was also said that he lost some weight. 100 kg was probably at his most when he got very old. And as I stated previously he most likely lost weight at 91 kg.

    • His BMI was 27.4 his build was average but he was said to be overweight. One time he was said to be 230 pounds which meant his BMI was 28-29. He lost 14 pounds.
