Very interesting. I always thought that Boris Karloff was taller than 5'11".

Another famous Hollywood actor whose south Asian ancestry is less in dispute was the beautiful Merle Oberon. She had a Ceylonese (Sri Lankan) mother and a British (Irish?) father. When she came to England and subsequently to Hollywood, her mother traveled with her. Oberon chose to introduce her mother as her maid in order to keep her mixed heritage (a career killer) under the wraps.
