Donna Reed
I once saw myself on the plump side when I first came to California. I'm only five feet four and it didn't look well. After I got it off I never let it return.

Donna Reed was about 5' tall. "It's a Wonderful Life" next to J Stewart towered over her by more than a foot and she has 3 in heels

Never pictured Donna as petite,though! She looks like Patty Duke Show mommy Jean Byron,who was 5'9",but her Donna Reed Show is a lot of fun to watch! Even have a DVD of it I got 10 years ago off a box of Wheaties! She did great,too,in From Here To Eternity,deserving her Oscar for it,even if she was out of place as a hooker! Cute Donna Reed Show series she did for 8 years. (Some of the show's music was used on the Quick Draw Mc.Graw Augie Doggie feature. Here that's hitting DVD too,finally,this fall!) Just wish the full Donna Reed Show series was on DVD!

Sue I tried convincing Rob that Doris was taller than 5'6". I thought she was nearer 5'7 too. She looked tall in heels next to six footers in her films.

I have a pic with her and Doris Day barefoot on a beach and she looks a good 3 inches shorter than Doris who was around 5ft 7.

She was really gorgeous especially in They Were Expendable but could look fairly short, not helped by a lot of fairly tall leading men like John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart and Burt Lancaster.
