In the Barbara Walters interview, available on YouTube, Walters says how surprised she is to see Garland is so short. Walters has Garland stand up and Garland herself says, "I'm only four feet eleven". This is from Garland herself! Interview is found on YouTube; search "Walters interview Judy Garland"
[Editor Rob: I would be surprised if she was just 4ft 11 in her 20's.]

I think from comments and looking at her she was roughly around 4 f 11in cause I am 5 foot 3in and that doesn't look very tall

And classics like Arsenic and Old Lace, Cover Girl and The Uninvited (which spawned one of my favourite jazz standards Stella by Starlight) etc. 1944 was definitely a great year in films.

Nice one but can you add Meet Me in St. Louis too, I'd say that's probably her second best known film after Oz, followed by Easter Parade. It was the film in which she met Vincente Minnelli and let to the gorgeous Miss Liza Minnelli... Meet Me in St Louis was the second highest grossing film of 1944 after Going My Way. Enjoyed both, but Gaslight, Laura, and Double Indemnity were also very fine films of that year and among the best of the 40s. 1939, 1959 and 1962 had the highest number of great films though IMO.

Rob can you add US Actress best remembered for The Wizard of Oz, Meet me in St Louis, Easter Parade, Babes in Arms, A Star is Born and Judgement at Nuremberg? She was more than a one tricky pony! Obviously though The Wizard of Oz is her definitive role.

Got to say she does look as low as 4'11.5" in Meet Me in St Louis.

Judy was 4ft 11.5. I listened to an interview with Liza Minelli and she said her Mom was only 4ft 11. Edith Head, the Hollywood Dress designer in the 40's and 50's has her down at 4ft 11.5 on her dress statistics

Mmm in A Star is Born she's briefly barefoot next to James Mason in shoes and doesn't really look over 5 ft. I think this is about right.

She actually looks 5'2" next to James Mason in A Star is Born.I think 5'1" is nearer.

She looks easily 5 ft 1 next to Billie Burke in Wizard Of Oz, although I don't know if the red slippers gave her height advantage. Burke was supposedly 5 ft 3, but if say she was 5'2.5" and that would make Garland 5'0.5". I'm not even sure Burke had even quite 2 inches on her but it was near that. Either way I agree with Rob that 4'11" seems impossible next to Burke unless Burke herself was 5'1" range. She looked small in wizard of oz 5'0-5'2" but didn't look sub 5 ft tiny. I mean compare her on screen to say Mary Pickford who looked much smaller IMO.

She seems about 5 ft in the Wizard of Oz.
