Shemp was the tallest Stooge at about 5' 6", or MAYBE 5'7", but don't quote me on it. After watching many of Shemp's solo shorts from the 1930s, he doesn't look as small as he does in the Three Stooges shorts (in fact, to sidetrack a bit, as short as they looked on screen due to most of the supporting actors being 5'9"+ and women's heels of course, they really weren't that short in real life, a 5'4"-5'5" white guy is about equal to a 5'6"-5'7" white guy today). Anyway, 5'5"-5'7" is a safe bet for Shemp.
