World's Tallest Woman Sandy Allen in Fellini's Casanova

Universal Pictures
Sandy Allen was featured in Fellini's Casanova, a 1976 Oscar-winning film (Best Costumes). Sandy played an arm-wrestling champ, and in one of the film's most talked about scenes, she shares a tub with two dwarfs. "I was definitely proud of what I did and to be a part of a critically acclaimed filmmaker's work. When it played in Shelbyville, I was the toast of the town."
