Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

61-63 CM according to Rivendell's sizing for a 700c wheeled bike. If you score one with 27" wheels, it will be much the same.
Rivendell uses "French Fit", though, so you could likely do quite well with a 60cm frame. All I can say is ride and see.
If compact geometry with a long top tube, you could get by nicely with a 58 CM frame (Specialized calls this XL frame, 58 CM seat tube and 59.5 CM top tube. Just don't cut the steer tube down and use spacers.
