Home :: About  Latest :: Comments :: Top 50 

Angela Lansbury's height is 5ft 7in (170 cm)

Peak height was 5ft 8.5in (174 cm)
British actress best known for starring in the TV series Murder She Wrote. In film she appeared in The Manchurian Candidate, Samson and Delilah, The Picture of Dorian Gray, Gaslight, State of the Union, Please Murder Me, All Fall Down, Something for Everyone, Death on the Nile and The Mirror Crack'd. In 1985 a NY Times article called her surprisingly tall at "5 foot 8" and Lansbury herself wondered "why people think of me as a small woman". I read Angela saying in People (Nov 07,1988): "I'm 5'8 1/2" and I weigh 147 lbs. at the moment. It's a good weight for me. I don't think I'll ever be skinny because my bones are too big"

Comment on the Height of Angela Lansbury

I was asked by casting and directors, constantly, back in the 1960's "How tall are you anyway?". As if I was a giant. One show in the early 70's I wore, to a perfect fit, one of Ms. Landsbury's old costumes. I felt so good. At 5'81/2" I was Not a huge dame. Now I see these young actresses at 5'9", 5'10. No one seems to care anymore if your a long legged girl. I wish I'd had that.

I'm surprised that she's only 5ft 8ins, I'd have guessed she was more like 5ft 10ins.

Rob can you add a photo and films like The Manchurian Candidate, Samson and Delilah, The Picture of Dorian Gray, Gaslight, State of the Union, Please Murder Me, All Fall Down, Something for Everyone, Death on the Nile and The Mirror Crack'd.

She may be 5'7 now that she's close to 90 but she was definitely 5ft8-8.5" when she was younger. I remember her in the 1944 movie Gaslight where she played the maid to Ingrid Bergman's wealthy character. Bergman was 5ft10 and Lansbury didn't look much shorter.

I knew she wasn't short, but I looked up her height because I recently saw a MSW episode w/Tom Selleck &, 'tho taller, he didn't tower above her.

She really looked a lot like Shelley Winters!

Yeah I was watching murder she wrote last night. And I said damn I didn't know she's that tall... she towers over other female actresses in the show.

Tall, definitely. Laurence Harvey in The Manchurian Candidate looks tall next to Frank Sinatra and Lansbury is close to his height in whatever footwear she is wearing.

Looks about right. In heels she's not much shorter than Raymond Burr who I've concluded was between 6'1" and 6'2" as Rob lists him at.

Yeah, she's 5'5"-5'5.5".
