Paul Newman is not 5'10"
neither was Steve McQueen -- 5'8" at most. In the movie Hell Is For Heroes
there is one shot where he and Fess Parker walk alongside each other. Fess makes Steve look like a midget.
I'm really surprised McQueen allowed that shot to be in the film. He had the original director fired, and allegedly got into a fight with co-star Bobby Darin that put the latter in the hospital -- in McQueen's defense he, like the public, was unaware that Darin suffered from a congenital heart defect. Supposedly Darin nearly died after the incident, but it was hushed up.
