It was made in around 70 I think and she'd have been 74 by then. It's possible she was near the 5' mark in her youth and and shrunk to 4'10 range by then isn't it?

Rob watch Harold and Maude, she's over a head shorter than Bud Cort who was supposedly 5 ft 9. She makes him look 6'2"! Click Here
More than 9 inches in the film. In fact she reminded me of Linda Hunt in it. OK, she wasn't quite that short but I think something in 4'10-4'11 range would be more likely. Check out 53 minute range standing with the cop for instance Click Here

Rob can you add a photo and films like Inside Daisy Clover, Every Which Way but Loose, Any Which Way You Can, What Ever Happened to Aunt Alice?, Abe Lincoln in Illinois, Maxie and Boardwalk.
Are you sure she was really 5 ft? In Harold and Maude I thought she looked nearer 4 ft 10, although she was in her 70s by then and probably lost a bit.
[Editor Rob: hard to say as a lot of stuff I seen her in was more when she was 50's onwards.]

I saw her in the Village with Lee Strasburg in '64 or '65, and she's 3' 8" if she's a day.
