Ok, so from everything that I've read and have heard, Elvis' heigth was 5'11" and he was 6' with boots/lifts... right? So, he was about average heigth. That brings this question... is it just me or did he surround himself with alot of short people... Charlie Hodge, Joe Esposito, etc.... ?

From nearly every book I have read, it's says 6', and his Dad was 6'2, Elvis weren';t that far off his father so i guess he was in the 6ft range.
Ladies, He's mine
Elvis was 5' 12".
I have a CD where he is being asked how tall he was,and he replied 6ft.
You saved my day (or rather evening )
But since there have been mentionings of his heigth beeing 5'9´' I was wondering...
Since I'm from Germany I also converted the mesurements.
5'9'' would be 1,75m .
Seemed real small to me.
But if he really was about 3 inches higher than me, my Graceland-Imressions were right.

Depending on the source, the average height for an white American male is 5'10" or so.
Getlo - cute'n'cuddly
I believe Elvis was around the 5'10-11 area.
"When I was a child, ladies and gentlemen, I was a dreamer. I read comic books, and I was a hero in the movie. So every dream that I ever dreamed has come true a hundred times. I learned very early in life that without a song, the day would never end; without a song, a man ain't got a friend; without a song, the road would never bend; without a song. So I keep singing a song." - Elvis Presley
That was was I believed, I just understood one posting wrong. I am sorry about that and did' nt want to upset anybody.
I apologize for not beeing a native speaker.
Since all of us now know about Elvis' real heigth, there shoud be peace...
