By the 21st century U.S. standards of female height (ranging from 5'3" to 5'6"), Stein (5'1") and Toklas (4'11") were quite short for women, but for their time, Stein was of average female height for a woman born prior to 1900, and Toklas was only very slightly shorter than average. In the film, they are portrayed with a very noticeable height difference, with Linda Hunt
being 4'9" (per Hunt's imdb profile) and Linda Bassett
being at least 5'6". See more
