Taller than 5'6 according to my airman grandfather who met her at the Hollywood Canteen. He was 6'5 in his prime. He estimated her at 5'8 ish and very long limbed, long hands and feet. Thinner than she looked in her films. And the most beautiful woman he ever met.

Almost a head shorter than 6'3" Stewart Granger in 1953's Salome. 5'6" ish.

How gorgeous was she in Cover Girl? Holy Moly. She had about an inch on Gene Kelly in heels, around 5 ft 6 barefoot seems right.

Saw Affair in Trinidad earlier and thought she looked around 5'8-5'9" next to 5'11 Glenn Ford in heels, barefoot I'd have guessed around 5'6". I'll try to watch Cover Girl and Gilda tomorrow, Glenn Ford was also in Gilda of course, been a while since I saw it.

Watching They Came to Cordura right now. Gosh she was a hottie wasn't she! Sure you'd agree on that one Rob! Gary Cooper has a full head on her in this film, footwear is about even with cowboy boots. Cooper looks about 9 inches taller. Cooper could have been 6'3.5", I don't think she was under 5 ft 6.

My grandpa was a soldier and met her at the Hollywood Canteen, which he vividly recalls. He still says and has told this story for 70 years that she was very tall and small boned . He guessed without her 1 inch heels she was at the smallest 5'8. It was common for dancers to lie about their heights and pretend to be shorter and even wear smaller heels to get better roles. Male dancers were notoriously vain about tall women upstaging them. She looked very svelte and long in "Gilda".

I always thought she looked taller than five six. She looked like five eight or nine. She was very long limbed looking unlike a lot of the female stars of that time.
