One of the most beautiful Hollywood stars ever and a tragedy that she died so young. Regarding some of the previous comments, 5ft 4.5in isn't short or 'shortish' for a woman. It's a very medium female height. Men are on average five inches taller than women so the median heights for the sexes are different by that degree of measurement.

Watch her in the Mask of Zorro w/ Tyrone Power in '40...yeah that listed height is about right. She's shortish.

i saw recently, an old Henry Fonda movie called Chad Hanna,it also stars Linda Darnell and Dorothy Lamour.Darnell and Lamour were the exact same height.So,i have to revise my previous impression about Darnell,she was 5'5" as advertised and same was Lamour,as listed here.So,Jane Russell must have been 5'7" as listed here.But i think we should give Linda that extra half inch.
