Life is tough for Cary's character as he is pulled either way by Rita Hayworth and Arthur.

Especially with Stewart I think she looks a solid foot shorter.

Great addition. 1`60 is fair for her. He was a small lady. One of my favorite actresses. The films mentioned above are great.

Jean Hagen is another Jean missing worth adding, so easy to get them all confused!

She did not have the most beautiful face, was short, had a squeaky voice and could seem moody, but she nonetheless was almost irresistibly likeable and attractive in her heyday. She had a way of making seem leading men like Gary Cooper, James Stewart and Cary Grant were were hopeless up against her!

I thought she already had a page! Good addition. 5'4.5" is conceivable as her height in heels.
[Editor Rob: so did I, but apparently never got round to adding her. ]
