Cass Elliot's Height
5ft 5 (165.1 cm)
American singer, best remembered as part of the Mamas & the Papas. In a 1972 article it mentioned "weight is no psychiatric problem to Cass Elliot, who is just 31, 5-feet-5 inches tall and tips the scales at 238 pounds, though she has just lost 40."

I'm guessing her bandmate Michelle Phillips - who was a former model - would be around 5ft7 then?
She always seemed around two-inches taller than Mama Cass.
In a 1986 news article she was certainly described as 5 foot 7 and 115 pounds.

Always looked smaller than this, probably because of her rotund build.

🎶 Further to my comment, Mama Cass was just 32 when she died, which was on 29th July, 1974.

A sincere "Thank you" Rob!
I was listening to the 'Mamas and the Papas' (1965-1968) yesterday, and Cass had such a beautiful voice your that I just had to Google her. 5ft5 is what they came up with, and then of course, the sadness of her weight and how it caused heart failure in 1974, six years after the group disbanded, I believe.
Famous for the line in the hit song 'nobody's getting fat except Mama Cass', the lady was far from lazy, taking an active part in issues which interested her.
What a shame she died so early, either 32 or 34 I believe.
She could look shorter than this publicised claim especially with the other 3 in the group...
