When I saw her in "Singing in the rain", I was so jealous of her extreme long legs...

I always thought she was around 168-170. So 169 could be right. How did the rumor of her being 175 even start?

I worked with Kelley, saw him many times and he was 5'7". And 5'6" for Cyd, I just don't know. I have several photos of her with actors who are not tall such as Fred Astaire (also 5'7") and she looks considerably shorter.

on the same website (Click Here) there is a pic of her standing right in front of Marilyn Monroe - assuming they both wore high heels (as Monroe would have), they look exactly the same height. I think M.M. was in the 5'6'' range.

I've seen Gene Kelly in person several times and stood near to him. There was no way he was 5'7". I'm 5'5" and I would have thought he was very short if he had only been 5'7". 5'9" sounds right to me.

Dee looks about an inch or so taller. Fred Astaire was short and Cyd still looks shorter. I'd say Astaire when younger was no taller than 5'7". He only weighed about 120 lbs. wringing wet which made him appear taller. By the time I saw him in the 1970's he was about 5'6" if that. But he was an older man. He was still standing erect and was still quite thin. Watch Top Hat and you'll notice he's three inches shorter than 5'10" Edward Everett Horton. In the film Holiday, Horton is at least two inches shorter than 6' Cary Grant. In some angles he looks three inches shorter.

I'm now going to say I doubt she was even 5'6". Back when I worked with her on The Fall Guy she wore very high heels. I have a copy of that show and went back and ran it. In those heels she was still quite short next to Lee Majors who in his lifts was about 6'1". She was at least five inches shorter and those spiked heels looked like they were at least four inch, possibly even five inch. I now think she was no more than about 5'5".

Kelly was 5'7". So was Fred Astair, Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby.

I definately think she was about 5'7 or 5'8 back in the day but now that I think about it she must have shrunken over the years. That often happens when women age.

In the DVD commentary for singing in the Rain it was mentioned that Cyd was a little taller than Gene Kelly. Gene Kelly doesn't look any shorter than 5'6 to me so she must be at least 5'6.5 if not taller.
