No boxes to stand on in this movie!

 Roz must have looked forward to co-starring with Brian Aherne, all 6'3" of him.  She could even wear heels standing next to him!  No need to slouch, position herself further away from the camera, or have the male lead stand on a box when she's in the scene.  Checking in at 5'8", Roz was quite tall for her time.  In 1940, 5'2" was the average height for women, men only 5'7".  Yeah, a lot of interesting camera angles were employed in her movies.
