Robert Conrad in his heyday must have been a little bantam rooster, no doubt about that. A few years back I was over at the Planes of Fame aviation museum in Chino and spoke with a pilot who flew the Vought F4U Corsair warbirds during the 1970s filming of the Baa Baa Black Sheep
TV series. Although Robert Conrad didn't know an aircraft P&W R-2800 radial engine from a Toro lawn mower 4-stroke, he strutted around the Santa Clarita movie set in with huge shoe lifts hidden in his flying boots, acting every bit the Hollywood star he was at the time.
In 2003 Conrad was involved in a tragic car accident where he was badly injured and the other driver was killed. His alcohol level was .22. In the aftermath it was revealed that his actual birth date was March 1, 1929 and not 1935. His actual height is between 5' 5" and 5' 6" minus the shoe lifts.
