Even from her brief appearance at the beginning of 'Damien Omen II', you can still see that Sylvia was once a very beautiful and elegant woman.

I just found her written up as 162cm. As I am just starting to watch 'Damien Omen II', in which she stars as the lovely and intuitive Aunt Marion, I am only going to be seeing the older version of this classic actress, so I will agree with 5ft2.5!

Rob can you squeeze in Summer Wishes, Winter Dreams, she got lots of Best Actress noms for that film, her only acclaimed film performance critically really. I know her best from Sabotage and Fury, yeah I thought 5'2 range. Out of curiosity what films have you been watching of late Rob? I'm pretty sure I requested her and Rhonda a while back but can't see any recent requests so I'd guess you saw some films with them in.

Great find!! You only live once was another great movie she was in. Simply a masterpiece.
She looked in the 1`60 area.
Thanks for the new additions, Editor Rob.

Extremely attractive in her younger years, but then I see her in her Tim Burton roles, smoking can beat you up but she still had charisma and charm. Rob, would you consider replacing Mars Attacks! with Beetlejuice, a better movie IMO and I believe a better known role for her.
[Editor Rob: yeah I'd say it was probably the better movie.]
