@Rob, check out Click Here 26:20. She's described as five feet five and a half and 112 pounds. He swears that a good description. You know I think it's accurate, more accurate than 5 ft 6 and that was her actual height. Can you tweak to 5'5.5?
Editor Rob:

Any chance of a photo, Rob? She was one of the most beautiful actresses ever, whether in photos or film, one couldn't keep their eyes off of her if she's in it.

Here is a group photo from the 50's showing Loretta Young looking nearly 2" shorter than Lucille Ball, who was at least 5'-7".

Also in the photo are Danny Thomas, Marlene Dietrich, Mitzi Gaynor and Esther Williams, who at 5'-8.5" was the tallest of the women, although Ball appears to be the tallest in this slightly skewed photo.

Yeah looks about 5 ft 6 next to Joseph Cotten in The Farmer's Daughter.

Actually looks near 5'10 (in heels) next to Orson Welles. I could buy 169.

Looks tallish in The Stranger in heels but a 5'6" woman of her generation usually did pull off looking quite tall on screen in heels.

Rob can you add The Farmer's Daughter, Come to the Stable, The Stranger, The Call of the Wild and Suez?
