@ Rob - What about a height comparison chart of video?
If I can get round to it, one day I will.

Would have said she looks 3.75-4" smaller than Rob here considering footwear so she was still around a strong 163 or 163,5 at 56 years old.Probably near 165 at peak.Btw I wouldn't have thought she was 56 on that pic,rather in her late 40's tbh.
By now she probably is 5ft 4, in her 50's she might not have lost much.

Karen makes completely different films to her sister, but is of similar height!
5ft5 goes her way from me!

I am happy with this listing.

Rob, this is not height related, but I would classify her as the ‘most beautiful ladies’ in her young days! Even today, she’s gorgeous!

What a cutie.

Rob if she has 2 more inches of footwear, do you think she is only 1 inch shorter in this pic?
[Editor Rob: actually I saw her again and she could be near 5ft 4 today]

One of my first movie crushes when I was kid from Raiders and Animal House...I think she generally does look 5'5".

She looks more 5' 4" if she had 2" footwear, not 5' 5".

Actually, there is less than 2 inches between them. Knock off off 1.75-2, and she is close to 5'5. Considering her age and that women lose mOre height on average than men, 5ft peak is probably spot on. So I say 5ft5 peak, round 5ft4.5 today.

if she has 2 inch more shoes, i would say 5 ft 4
thorterr said on 19/Aug/12
she hasnt changed much in 30 years ,im sure shes 5ft 4 if you take away 2 inches because of her footwear
Mathew said on 25/Nov/11
If she's 5'5" with the stated footware advantage she should appear about 1.5" shorter than Rob. 5'5" is reasonable but 5'4.5" - 5'4.75" would fit well based on the photo alone.

i thought she was 5'7. how the heck did she get to be 5'5 all of a sudden.
thekiddd said on 7/Nov/08
The Mom From Sandlot! She's probably wearing heels is why she appears taller James.

James says on 7/Nov/08
she looks a bit older since Raiders of the Lost Ark
James, that film was made 27 years ago. Everyone ages in 27 years.
Brad said on 7/Nov/08
I read they had her on a box with Ford in the close-ups because he was so much taller than her.
Markus said on 7/Nov/08
Yes James, Raiders of the Lost Ark was filmed in 1981. It's 2008 now....
steph said on 14/May/08

Two blonds are walkng down the street when they find a small mirror on the sidewalk. One of them grabs it and looks into the mirror. She says, "Gee, this girl looks familiar."
The other blond grabs the mirror to look and says, "You idiot! That's me!"

She looked 5ft 7 in raiders of the lost ark. Harrison ford only looked a few inches taller than her in some scenes.

From Cheesdip.com, "I saw Allen when I brought my mom and Auntie D to brunch at Sarabeth's West the other day. Karen Allen looks about the same now as she did on screen in the early 80s, except she's much taller than I expected"
CelebHeights Editor said on 23/Aug/05
In Starlog magazine she said, "People think I'm taller"
