Honor Blackman's Height
5ft 3in (160 cm)
Peak height was 5ft 5in (165 cm)
British actress best known for appearing in movies like Goldfinger (as Pussy Galore), Jason & The Argonauts, The Avengers and Cockneys Vs Zombies. Her agency listed her height as 5ft 6, although in a 2008 edition of Daily mail she is quoted giving her height and weight, "I am only 2lb heavier than I was as a teenager (I'm 5ft 4in, and weigh 9 st)"
I met her in 2010 (I had half inch more sneaker than her footwear), she had clearly lost a few inches of height.

Lotta custom made footwear with Connery who owned everybody. Tania that jacket is from '65.

Rob, is 5'4.5 peak possible? Honestly Brigitte Bardot looks an easy 2 inches taller in Shalako.
[Editor Rob: it could be possible]

One of my favourites of that era was Veronica Carlson. Have you heard of her? She for me was the quintessential 60s bombshell, she was absolutely divine and well spoken too which made her sexier IMO, but of course there were many of them, these two, Brigitte Bardot, Ursula Andress, Britt Ekland etc.. Carlson could look tallish next to Christopher Lee and Roger Moore. She was in a few of those great cult ITC series like the Saint, Randall and Hopkirk and a few horror movies. I'd have guessed 5 ft 7 for her, she looked taller than somebody like Honor, but I see a 5 f t 6 listing. A lot of 5'6 women of that era could pull off looking quite tall though, being of excellent proportions, the fact that average height for a man was nearer 5'7"-5'8", and of course the old camera tricks/heels etc to make them look tall. Honor at about 5 ft 5 seems about right, although I think she could look taller next to Patrick Macnee but then again I'm not dead certain of his peak height are you? He could look as high as 6'1" and then look barely 5 ft 11! For sure being a young actor/rockstar in the 60s and being exposed to women of that sort of calibre must have been amazing. Peter Sellers was no oil painting but the beauties he pulled in his time are unbelievable! His first marriage broke down because he had an affair with Sophia Loren I think and he couldn't get her out of his mind and used to brag about her to his wife and make her feel ugly. Nice man!
[Editor Rob: not as familiar with her, she is a stunner in the 60's.]

Rob, d' you reckon they must have consumed gold beverages on set of Goldfinger which made them age so wonderfully? You rarely see such attractive older women. Both Blackman and Eaton were stunning in Goldfinger, especially Eaton and still look almost as good.Surprised to see Honor this short though I always thought of her as about 5 ft 6.
[Editor Rob: being about 80 can easily knock 2 or even 3 inches off...yes, they were the kind of women in their heydey that I'd have crawled over broken glass for a chance with.]

Same quoted height when she was in the Avengers in the early 60s
