Actually sepia, there are three definite "no" votes in this thread, and several "uncommited." Together, they outweigh the "yes" votes.

I don't mind being the one correct voice amongst a sea of wrong.

Multiple sources list Blue as 6'2", yet this guy is several inches shorter than the other men, which means they both would have to be at least 6'4" and over to be taller than him. The photo that was posted by wich2 is also from the 1950s and looks nothing like this man, especially the hair.

Richard Roberts on Silent Comedy Mafia says it's not him and once again lists his height as 6'2":

It ain't Monte Blue, Blue was 6'2" or 6'3", Dan Seymour, who wasn't six foot, towers over that guy.


I actually like his site over there. But his eyeballs are no better than mine. 8)
