Jessica appeared in an episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents this afternoon called The Glass Eye. As it centred round a ventriloquist’s dummy, it scared the 💩 out of me! After seeing the Ann Margaret/Anthony Hopkins movie in the late 70s, entitled Magic, I have been terrified of things like that, as indeed I am of masks.

5ft4, but I thought she was taller.

Rob, did you see the photos of Jessica with Morgan I sent? If we assume that Morgan was 6ft 2.5, is it possible that Jessica was already just under 5 feet 3 then? Looking at their shoes, I'd say Morgan was a good foot taller than her.

Thanks Rob for your last reply under the page of Morgan Freeman! I also found photos of Jessica next to Morgan from 1990: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
The first photo shows his shoes and her heels. If Jessica was 5ft 3 or a bit below it then Morgan looked even near 6ft 3 then. Rob, what do you think?

Yeah I was going to say around 5'3" and probably 5'4" peak. Didn't look over 5'3" accounting for heels next to Morgan Freeman in Driving Miss Daisy.
