A real deal 5’4”, more likely over it than under it. She had an easy two inches on Hayley Mills in That Darn Cat!

If you've ever seen Wall Of Noise like I have,notice closely Dorothy Provine and Suzanne Pleshette were both only 5'3". I think Suzanne was a little smaller than Dorothy,but in the Wall Of Noise scene Suzanne and Dorothy stood next to Jean Byron,5'9" Jean tended to overpower petite Dorothy and Suzanne. But from watching The Roaring Twenties TV series Dorothy appeared in from 1960-1962,Dorothy felt "squashed" standing to 6'7" Andrew Duggan. Now I hear The Roaring Twenties somehow shoved into the Dec.22-23 Decades Weekend binge! Sadly Dorothy was 76 when chest cancer took her life in 2010. Yet 5'3" Dorothy always dressed nice!

It's just in Good Neighbor Sam she stood up well in heels with Mike Connors who I think was a decent 6 ft ranger, doubt 6'1.5. So does surprise me she was only 5 ft 4 flat.

Thanks. Could look taller but I think Romy is shorter than listed. I'm going to give her a little more.

I could understand 5ft 4 and change, there is a chance of it.
