Age and height really don't always go hand in hand. A tall 11 y/o would not be able to play Molly so she had to be small, and I agree that 13 years old was different in the 30's. This is coming from somebody with both teens at home and family members that were born during those times and who are alive and well today. It was really not the norm for a young teen to be married, certainly an older teen though.
