Eve Arden's Height
5ft 7 ½ (171.5 cm)
American actress best remembered for roles in films such as Anatomy of a Murder, Mildred Pierce, Grease, The Strongest Man in the World, My Dream is Yours, Tea For Two, Night and Day, Whiplash, Comrade X and TV series such as Our Miss Brooks, The Mothers-In-Law and Love Boat.
In a 1952 publication it mentioned "Her imposing stature of five feet seven inches has caused her on occasion to adopt a slumping stance", although Eve herself once said "Bette [Davis] is about Five Feet Two and I am Five Feet Eight, so we couldn't hear each other well enough to stay in the same key, but the audience loved us anyway."

Clearly taller than five seven. I've estimated Arden to be 5'-8" for years. She was slightly taller than Lucille Ball in the 1937 film Stage Door, but by less than an inch.

Cheers Rob. In fairness in some films she could 5 ft 8 range and almost 5 ft 9 at times. She was comfortably taller than Doris. In the photo I linked though over 5'7.5 is not so easy to believe with Vincent Price. Probably accurate.
Editor Rob: from what I looked at I think a full 5ft 8 might have been a roundup a bit.
