Sometime in 1979(after Manhattan was released but before Seduction of Joe Tynan and Kramer vs. Kramer)the NY Times had a brief feature article on her in one of their Friday arts sections and listed her as 5'6" and 120 pounds. Wish I could find that old article online but I don't see it.

5'6.75 in sneakers maybe. Around 5'6", she was about 1.5 shorter than Klaus Maria Brandauer in Out of Africa with a bit of footwear advantage. Klaus was around 5 ft 8 peak, you might remember him in Never Say Never Again opposite Sean Connery and Kim Basinger.
[Editor Rob: she's claiming to be the same height as G...although she laughed when saying it - G certainly doesn't laugh when he says 5ft 6 and 3/4 :(]
