Both Marlon and Dennis [Hopper] towered over me. As a petite woman - five-foot-two - I am always acutely aware of height.
I know who is taller than I am, and by how much. Dennis listed his height as five-foot-nine, but Marlon is also listed as five-foot-nine, and I just know that Marlon was taller than Dennis...
As an aside: Male actors fool around a lot with their height: they wear lifts in their boots, that kind of thing. And a curious fact: Both Marlon and Dennis played the male lead in Napoleon movies, and Napoleon was way shorter than either of them, only five-foot-six.

Rita looks fantastic to have starred in films dating as far back as that - and so trendy!
