In the 60s and 70s, women regularly wore heels, 2" and 4". It's easy to see how she could be confused for 6-6'2". Still a beautiful woman.

Barbara wasn't in her prime THAT long ago, I mean 1974 isn't so far back in history that women averaged out at enormously less, yet they mistook this 5ft9 actress for 6ft2! That's crazy!
