Rob, any chance you could squeeze in The Swimming Pool, Christine, César and Rosalie, The Things of Life, Sissi and Innocents With Dirty Hands, to Schneider's credits?

Rob, how tall does Piccoli look with Schneider in the below photos? 5ft 11.5 range?

Rob, would you consider 5’3.25” for Schneider?

There seemed less than seven inches between Schneider and Alain Delon in La Piscine, although Delon was a doubtful 5’10” even at peak.
Editor Rob
I haven't seen much in recent years to decide on that.

5’3.25” is conceivable in La Piscine.

Rob, does Jean-Claude Brialy look over 5’10” with Schneider?

Definitely 5’3” range, yet, Alain Delon did not seem a full 7 inches taller than her in The Swimming Pool...

She was stunning, I wonder how tall Michèle Mercier was, as there is a photograph of them together but you can't see Michèle's footwear. Click Here - she is listed as 5'4 everywhere

Anyone know how tall Lilli Palmer was?
Editor Rob
she could look taller than Romy, how much bigger her heels? I'm not sure, though I know she was described over 5ft 3 and 5ft 4.

Yes 5'2.75-5'3 certainly looks more accurate!
Arch Stanton said on 18/Dec/16
She looks easily 4 inches shorter than Jack Lemmon in shoes, so weak 5 ft 6 even in heels. I'd knock an inch off myself.
Arch Stanton said on 18/Dec/16
@Rob, there's little chance of this being accurate IMO. In Good Neighbour Sam she's markedly shorter than Dorothy Province in flat dap like shoes and looks much shorter than Jack Lemmon. See 37:44 Click Here , just ignore the Russian dub, the taller blonde on her left is Dorothy Provine, also listed at 5 ft 4. Looks nearer 5 ft 2 to me though Dorothy looks to have footwear advantage, even a full 5 ft 3 is questionable IMO.
Editor Rob
at most Arch, she could look close to 5ft 3.

She was in not many movies but one of the most beautiful actresses ever, reminds me a bit of Gene Tierney.

No, she was a german citizen...she was just born in Austria
Jim_16 said on 26/Apr/09
if she was that small then alain delon must have been around 5'9''. Not 5'10'' like some people say.

She was neither nor, I wouldn't say it's appropriate to debate about that!
Romy herself may regard herself as French cause' she lived in France for the longest part of her life.

Let's say Romy is Austrian, French and German. She's aweseome at 5' 3.75". A great actress!!

It's nonsense to fight about her origin, we can't ask her and we are not in the position to answer that!
