I happen to have seen Nancy three times at the cinema. The first was in Dressed to Kill, second was in Carrie and lastly, I saw her in Poltergeist III, a film in which she played someone NICE!

Nancy looked taller in Carrie than the listed 5ft4.5 because she was very slender.

She gets 5ft5.

@ Sandy Cowell - I fully agree with you, Nancy looks so youthful and Rob does too! She has certainly not lost much height but the average guess (5’5.18” after 7 votes) is surprising, she doesn’t look this tall in the above picture! It is hard to believe that she starred in Carrie in 1976 unless she was a child star!

Rob you need to add her peak height. She certainly looked 5ft 6 in robocop might be 5ft 4.5 now.

@ Nik - She's a Random Celeb for me too, and having seen this picture twice in a short space of time, I feel compelled to write on it!

It's hard to believe that Nancy starred in a film made in 1976, (Carrie) but there you are - she did. Nancy still looks fantastic in the picture, and even if this is a depiction from over a decade ago, she's wearing so well that I can't see her having lost much height.

5ft4.5 🌝💐

⭐ Ah, I see this image hails from 2007, so it is indeed over a decade old.

Her hair makes her look taller!

The average guess is 5'5.15" (5 votes)!

⭐️ Ah well, I thought the Stephen King/Lars Von Trier series would take presidence, but when I went to bed that night, even the ferocious winds outside were scaring me, so now I am watching my trusted old friend, 'Blackadder'!

Still looking good this girl!

I remember when everyone in my class was reading 'Carrie'! Of course, after that introduction, seeing the film was a natural progression. Ideally, I should see it again before picking out a height for her, but I have a long Stephen King series arriving later, so that takes precedence!

5ft4.75, but those days, she did look lanky enough to pass for 5ft5+, and in her 'Dressed to Kill' part too.

R-A-N-D-O-M C-E-L-E-B! The average vote of 5'5.17" is crazy!

In her Robocop days she would have been 5ft 6 for sure she didn't look tiny next to Peter Weller

Looks about 5'4 flat here.

I remember her as a scheming, gum-chewing cow in 'Carrie' but I've also seen her in many other films, including 'Dressed to Kill', which I clearly don't remember as well as 'redshoes' does, who wrote last December 15th that he/she noticed Nancy's height and weight from a scene in that film!
So I would agree that Nancy must have been 5ft6! Now she is probably 5ft5 or so!

her height is written 5ft 6in in dressed to kill movie's criminal record(weight 114 lbs)

so i guess her peak hight was 5ft 6in

timex said on 27/May/14

looks 5'4 flat considering heels

Wow this woman looks like my mum! Same height too!
Zoe said on 22/Oct/08
She is about average then. She has managed to keep up that lean figure from her youth. I was watching Robocop the other day and she does look a deal shorter than her male costars.
Lego said on 29/Sep/08
i do see 2 inches indeed, now if we consider the shoes, the hair etc the 5'5 actually isn't too far from the truth, but i guess 5'4.5 makes more sense cause i just noticed she's standing kinda straight and you're leaning a bit.

right, 5'4.5 but certainly not shorter than 5'4 ;)
Lego said on 26/Sep/08
looks more or less 5'6.5 - 5'7 considering the heels, i reckon she's actually a full 5'5.

Editor Rob
she's looking 2 inches below my eyeline...she's got a nice thicker hairdo

She looks 10 years younger, obviously shes taken care of herself.
MIA said on 20/Sep/08
I love Nancy Allen since the days of Carrie! She was a very famous NY model back in the day too. Models were smaller then, so 5'4" makes sense to me.
Gago said on 20/Sep/08
WOW, I gotta say that she looks great for 57 year old woman, what you say Rob, obviously you saw her in close distance.Thanks.

Editor Rob
yes she still looked good for her age.
