I don't believe it! It's Ruthie from 'Rosemary's Baby'! 5ft seems fine for Ruth at the time that the famous Roman Polanski movie was made, which was '68, I believe!
I had no idea she was in those two Clint Eastwood films! I'll keep my eyes open for her next time I have an Eastwood evening! My, she'll have looked small next to him!
I have reason to believe she was in a follow-up to 'Rosemary's Baby', about Adrian when he was a grown-up man!

It was made in around 70 I think and she'd have been 74 by then. It's possible she was near the 5' mark in her youth and and shrunk to 4'10 range by then isn't it?

Rob watch Harold and Maude, she's over a head shorter than Bud Cort who was supposedly 5 ft 9. She makes him look 6'2"! Click Here
More than 9 inches in the film. In fact she reminded me of Linda Hunt in it. OK, she wasn't quite that short but I think something in 4'10-4'11 range would be more likely. Check out 53 minute range standing with the cop for instance Click Here

Rob can you add a photo and films like Inside Daisy Clover, Every Which Way but Loose, Any Which Way You Can, What Ever Happened to Aunt Alice?, Abe Lincoln in Illinois, Maxie and Boardwalk.
Are you sure she was really 5 ft? In Harold and Maude I thought she looked nearer 4 ft 10, although she was in her 70s by then and probably lost a bit.
[Editor Rob: hard to say as a lot of stuff I seen her in was more when she was 50's onwards.]

yeah she is the one from Harold and Maude, Rosemary's Baby, and Whatever happened to Aunt Alice. She became famous in old age in the late 60's and I am pretty sure that by then she was far smaller than 5 feet!

I saw her in the Village with Lee Strasburg in '64 or '65, and she's 3' 8" if she's a day.
