Yes, he certainly milked it for all he was worth! Although Ava Gardner and others haven't exactly raved about his prowess in the sack, Frank Sinatra on the other hand..

Well being short never did Mickey any harm!! some of the women he bedded! Ava Gardener, Lana Turner to name just a couple!
Arch Stanton says on 20/Nov/13
Seeing her next to Mickey Rooney, I'd say she was 4 ft 10 range in National Velvet. How embarrassing for a grown man of 23-24 to only be a few inches taller than a 12 year old girl!
Arch Stanton says on 20/Nov/13
Hehe she looks about 4 ft 8 in National Velvet but she was only about 12 when it was shot!

Its best judging peopl'e height when they standing next to someone an inch or two smaller or taller not 5 or 6 inches. When she is walking up the Isle with Spencer Tracey in Father of the Bride he looks about 5 inches taller, if he 5ft 9 Liz would be about 5ft 4 in her high heels so that would be about right.
Arch Stanton says on 14/Nov/13
Yeah, see the final scene out on the castle courtyard that's easily an inch. I'd say Fontaine looks about 4 cm taller for whatever reason. Liz looks 5'4 range next to weak 5'9" Spencer Tracy though in Father of the Bride and Father#s Little Dividend.

Liz taylor always was 5`2, as little sue has said. Little sue has just nailed it exactly. She is shorter than 5'3 people like Joan Fontaine or Gina Lollobrigida. She is shorter than 5'4 people like eva marie saint, joan collins or eddie fisher. How on hell she could be 5'3 or 5'4??? 5' 2 at the very much at her peak. 5 at her last days.

One proof more, debbie reynolds, who was not more of 5'1 at peak is always half an inch shorter than Liz, maybe a full inch shorter in a lucky day. Not more. Even in some pics they look the same or liz being so slightly taller, very sligthly taller.

If little sue could post those pictures, it could proove even more than words.
little sue says on 14/Nov/13
Maybe not 1.5 inches but around an inch. I will have to try and learn how to put some pics on here as I have some really good ones of her photographed next to 5ft 4 people like Eddie Fisher, Joan Collins. Arch you should watch Raintree County, she is along side a 5ft 4 Eve Marie Saint and clearly looks two inches shorter.
Arch Stanton says on 13/Nov/13
She's right Rob, 5'3" Joan Fontaine looks about 1.5 inches taller than Liz doesn't she Sue. That's odd.
Arch Stanton says on 13/Nov/13
I agree Sue she looks tiny in Ivanhoe and looks more 5 ft 2 next to 6'3" George Sanders.
little sue says on 13/Nov/13
I have her in a picture face to face with Gina, they wearing similar boufant hairstyle and same dress and shoes, Gina about an inch taller

Proportionally she looked nearer 5 ft 4 than 5 ft 2 IMO. She did look a lot shorter in comparison to Rock Hudson than Gina Lollobrigida did though. I'll try to watch Ivanhoe this evening.
little sue says on 11/Nov/13
She 5ft 2. 5 max, don't know where you can see the 5ft 3 plus, she a good 4 to 5 inches shorter than Newman in Cat, I'm watching it now! She was always described as short or petite, no one would describe a woman of 5ft 3 plus petite 40 or 50 years back as it was above average then. Watch the film Ivanhoe, her and Joan Fontaine in scenes together wearing identical slippers, Joan taller in ever scene and she is 5ft3 max.
Arch Stanton says on 9/Nov/13
She about 3 inches shorter than 5'9.5" Paul Newman in heels. I think he's spot on, 5'3" flat is possible but she definitely doesn't look under it in her films to me.
Arch Stanton says on 9/Nov/13
@Liz visit the tiny url website, you'll soon figure it out.
Arch Stanton says on 9/Nov/13
The confusing thing though is that she looked a lot shorter than Gina Lollobrigida next to Rock Hudson and Lollobrigida was supposedly 5 ft 3.
Arch Stanton says on 9/Nov/13
Spot on IMO. Always looked close to 5 ft 4 just shy. Looks 5'3.5 in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Not as low as 5'2"!!
mister_lennon says on 23/Sep/13
Yeah, i think so, little sue. But if you could put those pictures, it will proove that her height was 5'2 at the very max.
little sue says on 18/Sep/13
I shall have to learn how to put pics up on here!! I have a few pics of Liz and Eddie on the beach both in flat thong shoes, he is a good 3 inches taller than Liz, I think we fighting a loosing battle mister_lennon!! lol
mister_lennon says on 16/Sep/13
She usually used high heels, you know. But not way for 5'3. 5'2 at the very max.
buff says on 13/Sep/13
You have to remember that male celebrities used lifts in their shoes, as well, to appear taller than their mates. Eddie Fisher was known for that. I saw her in the very early 1960s and guessed her around 5ft. 3in. I am 5'10 and although petite,she couldn't have been much less than 5'6. The most beautiful woman I ever saw and I worked in the business for 34 years.
constance says on 26/Aug/13
5' 2" to 5' 3" in her prime is about right.
mister_lennon says on 31/Jul/13
5'4 , maybe on a box. She was a weak 5'2, its fully prooved in all her pictures. As little sue has said, 5'4 or 5'5 people towered over her, like eddie fisher or joan collins.

weak 5'2 at peak, 5 or 5'1 at her last years.
little sue says on 27/Jul/13
No way was she 5ft 4, google her with Eddie Fisher who was about 5ft 4, she is still smaller than him in her high heels. She is also a good 2 inches shorter than 5ft 4 Joan Collins in their picture's together. Even Edith Head her costume designer from the 50's had her at 5ft 2 in her measurements.
Arch Stanton says on 26/Jul/13
Spot on I'd say, weak 5'4". She had sapphire blue eyes and could looks like they had a violet tint. Didn't think much of her as an older lady, but seeing her in the 50s "I'd have loved to" put it that way...
little sue says on 11/Jul/13
I agree that she was only around 5ft 2 but I can't see any hazel eyes?? they were sapphire blue, no one can have true voilet eyes.
mister_lennon says on 11/Jul/13
Please, its time to downgrade her. The 5'3 and a half is just a joke. She was 5'2 at the very max. All the people has said it.
Vicky says on 10/Jul/13
She is really 5'1or at the most5'2. I stood next to her and was much taller and I am 5'4". She used to wear very high heels. But gorgeous! However she had hazel eyes flecked with turquoise. The
Violet was a myth for production and Hollywood build up!

I've just read her book she wrote called 'Elizabeth Takes Off' its about all the weight she lost when she left the Betty Ford Clinic. She says in the book that she is '5ft 4.5 in her stocking feet' but judging by pics of her with 5ft 4 people she is clearly shorter. She had that massive backcombed bush style hair in the 80's so that probably added those few inches!!!
Cliff says on 13/Nov/12
Hey Rob, I think it may be time to downgrade her. Very few people who knew or saw her in person thought she was taller than 5'2" - 5'3." I think 5'4" is out of the question.
little sue says on 7/Aug/12
Still think Liz needs a downgrade, I have brought all the books that have come out since she died and they all say she was 5ft 2.
