Possible 5'6.5?

Yeah, I think she could look more a strong 5'6" than 5'7" range. In a way, though, 5'6" in her day was roughly like the equivalent of 5'8"+ today.

A lot of the male actors tower her in Queen Christina. John Gilbert was listed at only about 5 ft 11 but in the film looked 5 or 6 inches taller than her. I can't see a legit 5 ft 7 Garboforever.

Rob can you add Mata Hari, Queen Christina and Flesh and the Devil? Looks 5'6 range in Queen Christina.

Hi there, i love that Garbo is mentioned here.l i run a website about her. Anyway, her passports all show her hight as 5ft 7in.

She herself tlaked about it too (to friends) which yu can fine in several of her books.

She also said her height was 1,70 cm when she was 14.
This is all very well known that she was 1,70 cm (5ft 7in).
Not even an inch shorter ;-)

Accent's even better in Ninotchka as she plays a Russian. She gives Rosa Klebb from From Russia With Love a great run for her money. Garbo would have made an awesome SPECTRE/SMERSH Bond villain!!!

I love her voice to bits, it reminds me of a Bond villain.

Thanks for adding Taylor Rob. Nah if he was 180cm Garbo was nothing over 5 ft 6. I thought he looked 182 in comparison actually.
Arch Stanton says on 19/Dec/13
Rob any chance you could add Robert Taylor the classic actor? He was in films like Camille with Garbo, Waterloo Bridge with Vivien Leigh, Billy the Kid, Quo Vadis, and a House is not a Home with Shelly Winters. Looked similar height on screen to Robert Donat, 182-3 looks accurate. Garbo looks 5'7 ish in Camille.
