πŸ’ Joan Blondell was born 113 years ago today. I never knew she was five foot two before I came here. Did she have eyes of blue as well? Probably, with the light hair!

I think I will give her a Birthday guess of 5ft2.5. πŸŽ‚πŸŽˆ

RIP Joan πŸ‘±β€β™€οΈ xxx

So many of these classic Hollywood girls are so much smaller than you'd imagine. I saw 5ft2 written down for her and I thought "surely 2 inches taller, at least?"
Then I read above that articles written about her said she was 5ft4 - 5ft4.5! This I do find more credible! Joan Blondell as small as Gillian Anderson? Surely not!

5'2 I think is OK.

I have a full size pic of her in that scene with Cagney, she got mid heel shoes on, I would say she was 5ft 2, looking at pics of her with her ex hubby Mike Todd she looks around the same height as Liz Taylor did with him

She does look 5'2" range generally but does only look a couple inches under Cagney in what I'd imagine is flats.

Thanks Rob. I'd have probably added Desk Set rather than Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? I think it's better known but those are a good selection. Yeah somewhere in 156-7cm range I reckon. Looks a weak 5'2. 5'4.5 is crazy!
