* James Whitmore wore lifts in his shoes during the filming of ''Film/{{Them}}'' to compensate for the full foot difference in height between him and his costar, James Arness. (One assumes this was common with the six-foot-eight Arness, including in his most famous role on ''Series/{{Gunsmoke}}''.)

** Bernadette is played by the under 5' Melissa Rauch, but Howard, her boyfriend, isn't that much taller and thus it isn't that big of an issue. In one episode at her apartment she got a ring at the doorbell and in order to look through the peephole she had to use a step stool. Rauch mentioned that most of her family is pretty short and her husband is around 6', so whenever they get together it feels like he is visiting [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings the Shire]].

* CNN reporter Frederik Pleitgen typically ends up with a cameraman on a box. Fred is very tall, and when doing interviews stands with his legs apart to bring himself down to the level of most of his interviewees. This way, they aren't looking up and we don't get a lovely shot of the subject's nostrils. However, when doing a OneShot, to avoid the opposite effect of Fred looking down, the cameraman needs a boost to operate the camera at a suitable height.

* Used occasionally in ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' when somebody is too short for the witness stand, such as Cody Hackins from the first game, who is a young boy. [[FirstPersonSmartass Apollo]] lampshades this at one point when a witness makes fun of him for being short, while the witness himself needs a box to testify.
