Bob, can you please show the interview where she claims 5'-8 1/2". Otherwise, the 5'-8 3/4" interview, which we can see for ourselves, should take precedence. Otherwise, it's hearsay. Just my opinion.
Thank you. Richinkle
It's in January 9th, 1977 edition of a newspaper called Salina Journal.

Why does Celebheights list her at 5'-8 1/2", when she says quite clearly in this interview with Dick Cavett that she is 5'-8 3/4"?
she has claimed 5ft 8 and a half and also I've seen an 8 and 1/4 as well.

Why does google list her at 5'10 when she seemed to be honest and claiming not even 5'9? When I'm famous, Google might as well list me in the pushing 5'11.5 range.

So Bob, do you think it's worth considering a change of height here, based on the below reference?
Editor Rob: the 8.75 is certainly believable too, I will give her that quote.

At 13:35 in this 1971 interview with Dick Cavett, a 19-year old Lucie Arnaz notes: "It's normal to be 5'-8 and 3/4 at 19, but it was tough being 5'-7" at 14". I would venture to guess she may have even reached 5'-9". This is about as verifiable a primary source as you can find!

I agree with Shadow 2. This seems about right. In "Here's Lucy", Lucie Arnaz and Gale Gordon always looked very close in height. Lucille Ball, at 5'-7" is no mo than 1 1/2" shorter than her very tall daughter.

This current height for Lucie is more realistic than other taller heights previously given. She never towered over her mother or Gale Gordon in the "Here's Lucy" shows.

Lucie Arnaz is Lucille Ball's daughter. She's a very tall and leggy - at least 5'-9", if not a bit taller.

Lucille Ball i never would have thought she was that tall 5'9'' and a bit. but Mary Tyler Moore used to get listed at 6'2'' which is outrageous since she never looked over 5'8'' on her show.

Rob, you have an entry for Lucie Arnaz and Lucille Ball (5'9.5" & 5'6"). They are the same person, right?
[Editor Rob: daughter of Lucille.]

She did look about 2 inches taller than Katharine Hepburn, so this is probably accurate.

I think this height is very accurate. A good friend of mine sat right behind her at this year's Tony Awards. My 5'-11" friend said she looked "gigantic", and estimated her to be around 5'-10". He also said she looked terrific. I've seen recent pictures of her and agree.
On "Here's Lucy", she never looked more than 1 1/2 to 2" taller than her mother, which confirms Lucille Ball's height of 5'-7 1/2".
