I follow fashion as closely as I can, but I have to keep in mind that I'm petite. I wish I were taller, but I always wear high heels and that helps.

Actually there's a scene in Limelight where Chaplin looks a good 2 inches taller, but he had on a bit of a heel and she was in ballet flats.

Yeah, saw Look Back in Anger too...gorgeous girl she was indeed.

Looked about 5 ft 4 in The Spy Who Came in From the Cold.

Had a big crush on here back in her day. Richard Burton slept with her for many years, Just imagine having Liz Taylor one day, Claire another and Jean Simmons another! A depressed alcoholic but I think any guy would have loved to have been Richard Burton in the 60s!

Sam have you seen Look Back in Anger?
Arch Stanton said on 18/Dec/14
She's still active as an actress I believe so perhaps change it to 5'3" peak and ? whatever you reckon today. She's 83 so on average a 2 inch loss is reasonable.
[Editor Rob: not sure she's done much this year? I would have said for her, just stating her peak is fine.]

Firth has a fair heel himself, odd isn't it. I think she'd be about a foot shorter than him if both barefoot so maybe she is 5'1 range now, what do you think she looks there? I'd guess about 5'1" flat.

She's lost quite a lot of height today Click Here Seems to have lost at least two inches at 83 but it is to be expected. So 5'3" peak and 5'0.5-5'1?? now might be OK. She does look that short there I think as she's has some heel as well. I wouldn't trust it too much though as Guy Pearce is barely shorter than Firth there!!

Rob can you squeeze in Charly and Crimes and Misdemeanors? Her role was very minor in The King's Speech I believe not worth mentioning. Much appreciated addition! I had a little something for her in the 50s and 60s especially, still a stunning looking woman. She was in some gems. She could seem taller, with Burton in some scenes in Look Back in Anger could seem 5'4-5'5, also in Charly she could look that, Little Sue also thought she could seem taller. I always knew 5 ft 2 was too low, if she claimed 5 ft 3 herself though it's probably accurate.

Hmm, could have been a fraction over the 5'3" mark. Beyond sexy in the Haunting, can't blame Julie Harris for her mixed up feelings in regard to Bloom there. Also, beautiful in Richard III, which deserves a spot at the top if it can be squeezed in.
