While we are discrediting that police IDů..Lucille Ball at 36 weighed well over 114 lbs!

What police ID lies? A police ID that was a hastily produced prop for a movie.
That said, Lucille Ball played a very cool, intrepid and level headed detective in this Film Noir murder mystery. And throughout the movie, she looks well over 5'-6".

In the 1947 movie "LURED" at 1h:10m:19s her police ID states Height: 5' 6'' Weight: 8 stone 2 lbs. sic[114lb] Color of eyes: Blue Color of Hair: Red.
She was a HOT 36yo at the time! I'm watching the movie now, saw the ID, and went to this site. What police ID lies?

In this link with Van Johnson (weak 6'-1"), Ball dances with Johnson in 1/4" flats, and looks about 6"shorter, and then dances with him in 3+" heels, and he only looks no more than 3" taller.

Yeah, I think Lucy needs an upgrade, at. least 5'7".

If you ever thought Lucille Ball was anything less than 5'-7", watch this rare bit of video from 1962, which shows a glamoured up Lucy in 2 1/2" to 3" heels next to Danny Thomas, Andy Griffith, Jack Benny and Gary Moore.

She towers over Gary Moore, is 2" taller than Jack Benny, about the same height as Danny Thomas and less than 2" shorter than Andy Griffith, who is listed at 6'-0".

Probably in the 5'7" range in her prime.

Lucille is about 5'7. She was accused by the American government cuz they thought she was in support of communism but she wasn't so her 5'7 claim is right for her and she could have been a weak 5'7.

she must have been 5ft 7.5 because people loose some inches in older age
