How tall is Norma Shearer?

When 14 she won a beauty contest. In 1920 she took Norma and her sister Athole Shearer (Mrs. Howard Hawks) to New York with her mother, Edith Shearer. Ziegfeld rejected her for his "Follies" but in several movies she got work as an extra. She spent a lot of money on the services of eye doctors trying to correct her cross-eyed stare caused by a muscle weakness. Irving Thalberg had seen her early efforts in acting and gave her a five-year contract when he joined Louis B. Mayer in 1923. Upon their marriage, he figured she would retire, but she wanted bigger parts. She insisted on firing agent Viktor Tourjansky in 1927, because he was confused about her cross-eyed stare.
