Here’s an interesting discussion about Leonard’s height in 2002 –viewtopic.php?f=5&t=55&hilit=leonard%27s+height
You know, this reminds me of a scene in The Favourite Game (which tenuously some people say is partly autobiographical) when Breavman stuffed tissues into his shoes to impress a girl at a dance by making him appear taller. He knew she had added tissues into her bra and he thought the same principle would work for him – vertically not horizontally! After about half an hour of dancing the tissues had become a most uncomfortable hard ball under his arches. Read the whole senario - it will most definitely make you smile!
Ah, the heights we try to reach to impress!
For the record, my guess is that he’s 5’6” in his bare feet. He probably hasn’t measured himself for years and may not even know the answer himself until he does.
…..and Gwen, that hat can add at least 2”……unless you stood next to him without it - or his shoes!
