Absolutely gorgeous but yeah, cold and aloof, whereas you could imagine Ava in a nightclub getting drunk and having a night of wild sex you'd think of Hedy as more likely to play chess or huddle up on the sofa knitting. Funny, but she had a similar demeanor to Judith Keppel.

5'-7" for Lamarr isabout right. In a Bob Hope special from 1966 she had a 2+" heel advantage over 5'-7" Lucille Ball and stood about 2" taller.

I remember my Mum allowing us kids to watch 'Samson and Delilah' when I was still very young, about eight. I thought Hedy Lamarr was incredibly beautiful even at an age when I normally wouldn't have taken that sort of thing in!
I never knew she was as tall as 5ft7 though. That really was exceptionally tall for those days!
@ Evana - how fantastic that you met this lady and how equally fantastic that we can all benefit from your age and experience!

With Ava Gardner probably the most beautiful woman to ever appeared on the screen. She looked at least 1`68

Airman grandfather met her at the Hollywood Canteen. He was very precise judge of height and said she was taller than most at between 5'6 to 5'7. And very beautiful and polite.

Whether she was 5'-3" or 5'-10" doesn't deter from the fact that she was the most beautiful women ever on the silver screen.

She was petite but tall most glamour girls that I met back then (I'm 81) were 5'8 ish. Hedy was beautiful and ladylike. And very cold, very Austrian. I'd say she was 5'7 1/2 or taller.

I have done extensive research on Hedy Lamarr and a few months ago I contacted
Hedy Lamarr's official website (Click Here
) to inform them of their
incorrect information about her height. They agreed to change her (then)
listed height of 5'3" to her actual height of 5'7". So, what you have listed
is correct (if their was any confusion).

The official Hedy Lamarr website lists her as height as 5'7.

I used pictures of her for an art project and she looks REALLY tall and if you search Google with Hedy Lamarr height then all you get is 5"7 are you sure about 5"3????
[Editor Rob: no, I wasn't sure - hence why 'I'm tempted to think she might have been 5ft 7'...the 'official' site does list her 5ft 3, but this does appear incorrect...I'll put her back up]
