Five nine is a height that starlets would not be rounding up back then. She may well have understated her height, because directors certainly minded her looking oversized and that would hurt her career. A very, very strong 5'9'' women to still be ever inch of that in 1997. Forrest Tucker was 6'5'', and I suspect she had no heels on for PR head shots of them. In heels in the film Hellfire she looks about six foot beside Tucker.

I met Marie back in 1997 at a seminar hosted by Charlton Heston. She was 5-9, exactly as stated above,and a fine, intelligent woman, whom I was honored to meet. We talked about The Narrow Margin, one of the best noirs ever made(1950–but Hughes didn’t release it till 1952), co-star Charles McGraw.

Marie Windsor had the most terrific "bedroom" eyes anywhere as well as a fabulous body. Why she never became a real star is a mystery.

I'm sure there's all kinds of height reducing tricks going on with her but it's really tough to buy that she was a full 5'9" IMO.
