Mark2 stated on 17/Apr/20I just remembered the write-up I made right here years ago, mine opinions tho stand, although ns did underestimate Curly a bit. He absolutely pulls off a full 5"5", at times he could look 2-3 inch taller 보다 Moe depending upon the shot, various other times the difference is not as much.
5feet3onehalf stated on 16/Dec/19Rob,at what time the day would you say was a person"s real height? I"ve to be curious.....
Editor Rob
I think if we get measured after being up several hours then it fits in with the type of timeframe most people get measured in ~ appointments.

jabberwocky stated on 15/Mar/18Moe and Larry I"d say to be both 5" 4", Curly was 5" 5" and Shemp was the tallest at 5" 6".
Scott stated on 22/Nov/16I have actually been a Stooges fan for plenty of years, and also Larry good has constantly been mine favorite. He has actually been described as "about 5"4"" which could mean 5"3 1/2"" to 5"4"" ~ above the nose. Moe Howard has been defined as 5"4"" the entire time I have viewed his height in every media. However, I once read wherein a other who met him described Moe as ""5"3"" not long before he passed in 1975. I am sure he shed at the very least an inch throughout his 70"s. As plenty of stooges shorts I have actually seen in mine 31 years, I"d to speak Moe and also Larry were roughly around 5"4"" in your youth, and also Shemp and Curly were approximately the 5"5""mark. Joe Besser was most most likely marginally taller (5"41/2"") and also Curly Joe DeRita may have been 5"6"" tops.
Carl claimed on 6/Jan/16Moe and also Larry were in the reduced 5"3 range, Curly in the top 5"4 range, and Shemp roughly 5"5 (edging the end Curly anyway). On a semi-related note, 5"7 man Kassir played a very good Shemp in 2000 (average height has actually risen 2 inches because the 1940s) both personality and also physically speak (of food the previous mattering lot more).
Steve: I"d say Moe was an ext in the mid-5"1" variety there, the looked a little taller than Mike"s chin (the best comparison in my eye was as soon as Moe go by Mike to execute his pie-throwing demonstration, and yes i took perspective, stance and the like right into account as well). Furthermore, it"s difficult to tell through the low quality (using the same scene), yet I think Mike"s footwear looked a bit heftier 보다 Moe"s, so that could obviously make the latter look even shorter. It"s likewise worth stating that by the moment of this episode"s filming, Moe was 76, and also considering the physical activity involved in the slapstick he and the various other Stooges did, ns wouldn"t it is in surprised if Moe had actually lost 2 customs (or close to it, much more than 1.5 inches anyway) by this time. Therefore Moe"s listing below is reasonable, maybe a fraction less. I"d say for all the well-known Stooges (meaning no Joe Besser no one Curly-Joe), I"d say:Moe-5"3.25"Larry-5"3" Curly 5"4.75" Shemp-5"5.75"
Steve stated on 9/Apr/15I doubt Moe was any talker 보다 5". As soon as he showed up on The Mike Douglas Show, that came up to Mike"s chin. And also Douglas to be no much more than 5"9".
Shadow2 claimed on 8/Apr/15Interesting exactly how in that current movie recreation that the three Stooges, but set in today"s civilization (and not to be puzzled with the Mel Gibson created biography film), the actor playing Curly seemed to be around 6" 3".

Sam said on 2/Apr/15Mark"s listings seem fairly accurate, didn"t recognized Shemp edged out Curly though, I thought Curly to be the best stooge. Wow, the Marx brothers actually averaged taller 보다 the Howard/Horwitz brothers...

Mark stated on 1/Apr/15In their an initial short at Columbia "Women Haters", you have the right to see throughout the scene once he and Curly start Walter Brennan"s personality (listed below at 6"0") the Moe comes approximately his lips more or less. However, in that very same short, Moe has actually some nice hefty footwear on, so taking that into account, Moe"s certainly no shorter than 5"3". The Stooges, favor Keaton and Chaplin, used approaches to do themselves look shorter than they currently were to appear an ext as the diminutive antiheroes we understand them for. Because we have actually Moe on below now, i think us can figure out the remainder of the Stooge"s heights. Larry 5"3-5"3.5" (like Moe), Curly 5"4.5" (could show up to pull off a full 5"5" at times), Shemp 5"5.5".
