Ann Miller's Height
5ft 7 (170.2 cm)
American dancing Actress from the 40's and 50's. When she was in Mulholland Drive, playing Coco she was noticeably shorter than her heyday, in fact from Dance Magazine 2002 she said aged 79, "I was 5' 7", but time marched on and now I'm 5' 3'. If I [had been] the height I am now, I could have danced with Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire"
, although in another interview around that time she was quoted saying "I was really too tall for [Fred]. I had to wear ballet slippers and when the dress flares out during our number, 'It Only Happens When I Dance with You,' you can see them. Now I've shrunk an inch and a half and would be the perfect height for either Fred or Gene Kelly. Cyd Charisse was the same height I was and so was Rita Hayworth."

I believe she may have lost as mush as 7 inches. Her peak height is around 5'6"

Having just seen Ann in 1953's "Kiss Me Kate", I'd now like to upgrade her to 5'8" in her MGM days. Early in the movie she does a dance routine around Howard Keel and near 5'11" Ron Randell (based on Keel's 6'4"), and wearing heels, has to be peaking at 5'11". I think Ann lost height as she aged, so it was easier to give her the 5'7" publicity tag in retrospect.

Ann seemed a legit 5'7" in her MGM days, and with heels, could be a near 5'10" companion for 6'4" Howard Keel and 6'2" Red Skelton in their movies together.

She said in a 2003 program '100 Greatest Musicals' in relation to Easter Parade, 'At the time I was 5ft 6 and a half'
....and paraphrasing: 'Fred Astaire was 5ft 7 and I done dancing in ballerina shoes'
