Peter Graves Height

You cannot simplify human intelligence, emotion, and growth. To watch the frills and furbelows of a human psyche is fascinating.

Peter Graves was a tall actor who came from a tall family -- his elder brother James Arness was even taller -- all sources agree that James was 6 feet 6 inches tall and Peter was a couple of inches shorter than him.

On an episode of The Film Crew, his height was stated as 6'4" (193 cm). But Peter himself once mentioned it as 6'3".

This makes sense, considering that in the original MI series Peter Graves looked slightly shorter than a 6 ft 4 in tall Peter Lupus, but in the movie "Airplane!" Peter looked quite taller than a 6 feet tall Leslie Nielsen. Here is the origin of Peter's family tallness -- in his own words:

I think we were born 6 feet tall and then started to grow from there. My dad's not particularly tall - only 5 feet, 11 inches - but his mother was almost 6 feet and straight as a ramrod: a German woman who used to scare the hell out of me.

The height of Peter Graves was

6'3" or 190.5 cm
