In her prime, this woman was so lovely & striking (I'm talking purely physically, of course) that she may even rank as the most beautiful screen actress of all time (if such a thing is possible!). I always thought of her as a full 5 ft 6 (168 cm) so I can absolutely accept 5 ft 5.5, lol!

Agreed that Paltrow in particular is quite annoying with her health-obsessed, hippie-ish life style, mainly because she rubs in everyone's face with a condescending manner. Gardner would have been a lot more fun to be around, but Paltrow will probably age well like her mom has. In her day, Ava was better than any other actress I can think of in making you think dirty thoughts with just a raise of eyebrow..

With her lifestlyle I'm not surprised, her and Liz enjoyed their self with food, drink, sunshine and men!! more refreshing than today's diet obsessed stars like Kidman and Paltrow

She aged so prematurely though. I mean in 55 Days in Peking you'd think she was only 40, looked more early 50s.

Rob can you add Pandora and the Flying Dutchman, Show Boat, The Snows of Kilimanjaro, The Barefoot Contessa, The Angel Wore Red, Seven Days in May and Earthquake?

Yeah when you think classic Hollywood you picture her as Pandora or in the early 50s as the icon of Golden Hollywood. More than Marilyn or Liz although they come close and also could claim it.

Arguably the most beautiful woman to ever appear on the screen. She looked around 166 as Editor Rob has stated

She was gorgeous in her younger days though a bit skinny, can't see her being more than 5ft 6 though.

Although barefoot on the boat next to Mason in shoes who would have been about 6 ft in them she looked about 6 inches shorter, so yeah 5'5.5"-5'6" is a good shout.

Looks close to 5 ft 7 actually in Pandora and the Flying Dutchman, managed to find it after all, very difficult to find! Worth watching for her alone, she was amazing looking in the early 50s. Iconic. Those lips, jeez!!
