Voxsartoria states that he was "diminutive." Clifton Webb and my uncle were friends, and I met Clifton and visited him at his house a number of times. While he was certainly lean, I wouldn't describe him as "diminutive." As I remember, he was a man of average height. Admittedly, I was but a boy at the time, and that might have skewed my perspective, but I was a big boy, and if he had been a tiny man, I think it would have stuck in my memory. As best I recall, he was not appreciably shorter than my uncle, who was about 5'10" or so, perhaps even a bit taller.
Webb was 5'11", above average height then and now, so your memory is correct. We'll just add this to the J. Libourel Should Write an Autobio library.
I meant that he was slightly built...I apologize if that made him sound like whnay.
