5' 11 3/4", but his boots made him 6'2". I always joke that he was really 5'8", but it was his hair that made him so tall!
In an interview from 1956 which you can hear on Elvis.com (i dunno where exactly) he's asked how tall he was and his reply was: "Six feet even".

Well, as I recall when I stood next to him - he was just plain BIGGER than life - I remember thinking it was like he was 8 feet tall and I was 2 inches!!!!!!!

Roseanne, As a matter of interest to me, have you got this cd
I am happy that we all agree that Elvis was or very near 6 feet tall. However, my question for ressurecting this thread was not to debate whether he was 5 feet 11 inches or 6 feet one inch. My intent was find out if anyone remembers reading something where an author wrote that while in the Army, Elvis grew in height slightly. I seem to recall this but do not know where I read it.
