Geraldine Page by Roy Schatt circa 1950s
I learned very young I was destined for character parts. Because I was so tall - I'm 5'8" - I never got the leading parts in high school plays.
-- Tyler Courier Times, Dec 1962

Rob can you add best remembered for films like The Trip to the Bountiful, Hondo, Summer and Smoke, Sweet Bird of Youth, Toys in the Attic, You're a Big Boy Now, Pete 'n' Tillie, Interiors, and The Beguiled. You do appreciate these suggestions and comments on how actors fare in films don't you? Most of the listings I come across really seem to check out but I think it's good having other opinions and comparisons from people like myself and Sam as there may still be a few which might not look right.

Yeah she looked pretty tall next to Wayne in big boots in Hondo and Dean Martin in Toys and I recall she also looked tall range next to Eastwood in The Beguiled. A top notch actress.
[Editor Rob: yes I appreciated comments and contributions. It's a slow process trying to go through and update older entries as it takes time.]

I met her years ago in New York, and this seems to be high. I would say about 5'4" in her later years!
