Glenda's 'A Touch of Class' was just so funny!

I saw 'Women In Love' when I was 14 and I found it quite disgusting, but it's an absolute classic. Consequently, I discussed it with my Mum and she listened with interest, and I think she wanted to see it!

The enterprising Glenda gets 5ft6.5.

The Alan Bates talk reminded me of Jackson, quite an actress she was. I thought she could look a little under this but was pretty foxy in a scary way in her day.

Found a quote from her:
"I was virtually a dwarf until I was about 14 - then I shot up. I'm five foot six and a half now."

I spoke to her briefly in Toronto when she was doing MacBeth with Christopher Plummer (late 80's?). I'm 5'8" and and I think she would be no taller than 5'6" and possibly as short as 5'4". Very impressive person. Intense like a jungle cat.
