@Rob, yeah maybe in her younger years she got measured at 5'2.5, that's believable. By Wizard looked no more than 5'2 though I though. She was mid 50s at that time, possible she had lost a little, she danced a lot, perhaps wear and tear took its toll, possible.

Nice one, can you squeeze in A Bill of Divorcement, The Bride Wore Red and The Barkleys of Broadway.
Not sure on 5'2.5 though, I'd thought more 5'2 flat with Judy Garland Click Here
Editor Rob: she might have lost some height by that age.
