“I have gone through a long apprenticeship. I have gone through enough of being nobody. I have decided that when I am a star, I will be every inch and every moment the star. Everyone from the studio gateman to the highest executive will know it.” (Gloria Swanson c. 1922)
Mission accomplished, Gloria.
Aaaaand that concludes my weekend of Swanson. I seriously feel like she and I have hung out all weekend, and now it’s Sunday and I have no idea what to do with myself! Gloria, I miss you already.
