Honey, a figure like mine is like having too much money...it's tough now trying to convince people I'm not eight feet tall - they always gave me five-foot leading men.

@Arch Stanton I don't understand what you mean, today a 5'7" woman would be the equivalent of a 6'1" man today, if the average height is 5'4" for a Woman and 5'10" for a man.

Rob can you mention films She Demons, The Beat Generation and Five Gates to Hell? Typo on tall BTW.

Yes, I think she was one of those downgrades, over 5 ft 8 in that generation for a woman was like over 6 ft 4 for a man in the golden era, seen as freakishly tall. A 5'9.5 woman in that generation is rather like 6 ft-6'1 today I think. 5'9.5 is probably honest but leaked out!
Editor Rob: she could look more within that 5ft 9 range than 8, a beautiful and strong women who could probably Lift you up without breaking a sweat.
