Funny that she's your type, Arch, but not Deborah Kerr. If not bearing a strong resemblance, they kind of physically remind me of each other. Garson had nice gams BTW!

This seems about right. Is a good inch shorter than 5'-7"+ Lucille Ball in this 1940's War Bond clip

Seems a good shout, in heels in Goodbye Mr Chips (which I now have on DVD) she looks about 3 inches shorter than Donat.

Strange but she looks a bit taller than Brando in Julius Caesar, not sure what she has on her feet though.

That one was partly set in Scotland wasn't it? I remember the dodgy accents in it. Not the best of Hitchcock's movies but it had its moments, the sheep in the road "flock of detectives" for instance! Is he worth adding? He was in The Count of Monte Cristo too, been a while since I've seen it. He looks a similar height on screen to somebody like Clark Gable, obviously the tash is influenced by him!

yeah some of it was, I might add him

Editor Rob

Excellent!! She could look taller than this as she had quite big hair at times and sizeable heels. She made Teresa Wright look 5'2" in Mrs Miniver. In heels she was about half a head shorter than 6'2.5" Walter Pidgeon but in a barefoot scene in the film when they're looking out the window at their son in a plane they're barefoot and he can just rest his chin on her head, so difficult to see over 5 ft 6.
