Stephen Michael Shearer: Gloria Swanson The Ultimate Star

Thursday, October 31, 2013 - 10:30am

Gloria Swanson had a singular film career. She starred with Rudolf Valentino during the Silent Era and with William Holden in Sunset Boulevard in what has been called the most celebrated film comeback in history. During the Silent Film era her fans worshiped her.  But her career took a crushing downturn in the 1930s. But she never stopped working and Gloria appeared in numerous films, on stage and television. Always acting as the penultimate star on and off screen.
