It makes sense that Piper was 5ft4.5 when 'Carrie' was made as Sissy Spacek was, I read at the time, 5ft3.
I saw the film when I was just turned 16! It was the first 'X' film I lied my way into seeing at Bromley Odeon! They were very strict there and I had to have all my answers ready for the inevitable grilling!
