Rob can you add The Paleface, The Las Vegas Story and The Tall Men? She played Calamity Jane in The Paleface. She's not much shorter than Bob Hope in it

Good lord, she didn't age well...

This gentleman prefers the brunette to the blonde in Gentleman Prefer Blondes!

Spot on, about 1.5' on Monroe in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.

Rob is it possible he was 5ft 6in in her later years she was defiantly 5ft 7in when she was younger.

I'd say she is (or was back in her days) about 5'7-5'8. She looks more than an inch or two taller than Marilyn Monroe in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, and Marilyn was 5'5, so yeah, probably 5'7.5.

Yes, I always thought she looked in the 5'7"-5'8" range, too. Perhaps, she rounded down a half inch or so? Only a handful of actresses in that era were that tall.
