5'10" x 2

Lately, one of the cable movie channels has been playing the 1971 film Cold Turkey incessantly. The female lead in the film is Pippa Scott (above left) and in a few scenes of the film, I noticed that she was right up there height-wise with the male lead Dick Van Dyke. Upon further investigation, I discovered that Ms. Scott is 5'10" and deserves a spot on the Famous Females of Height List.

Just as I was dotting the I's and crossing the T's on the previous paragraph, a missive from Peaches came in over the DSL informing me that television actress Roma Maffia (above right) of Nip/Tuck and Boston Legal fame was also 5'10" and deserves a spot on "the List."


  1. Don't forget Roma Maffia in "Disclosure" -- a great performance that will probably be forgotten since (a) the premise is probably non-PC by today's standards and (b) the flick is forever linked to Michael Chrichton, author of the book and, until he died, a vocal global warming critic.

  2. Here is a link to info about Disclosure.

  3. I'm fairly confident you can add Weather Channel OCM Stephanie Abrams to your list. Even if she is in heels, Abrams is clearly taller than Al Roker, who is listed at 5'8".
