Gloria Swanson And Cecil B. Demille
Original caption:
1942-Gloria Swanson is back in Hollywood to resume her screen career. Dropping in on Cecil B. DeMille, the man who took her out of a line of Sennett bathing beauties and made her one of the most glamourous stars of screen history, she acted out a role of his current production, "Reap The Wind," by reading from the script-just for auld lang syne. Yes, those are peacock feathers in her hat-bad omens to most theatrical people, but Gloria says they've always brought her luck.

this is an absolutely impressive and extraordinary collection of pics,flyme2themoon!!
iŽe only seen one of her silent films- "queen kelly".it was a heavily cut version and the quality was rather bad too,so i couldnŽt really get an objective impression...which is a pity becuase she must have been a strong actress judging from sunset boulevard.i found her performance as norma desmond so intense that it was almost frightening...
in a rather unusual tomboy-outfit
