I saw Elizabeth Taylor when she was still married to Eddie Fisher. I would guess her to be 5'3". She was thin at the time and had a low cut sun dress on and she really filled out the top and very small waist. Her face was beautiful beyond belief. Never saw a pic that captured her beauty.
Saw Debbie Reynolds at a party and was amazed at how petite she was. Maybe 5'2.
Saw Raquel Welch at the same party. She had on high heel boots and seemed like she was 5'7, so maybe she would be about 5'4.
I would say Loretta Young would have been about 5'6. Wonderful posture.
