Gloria Swanson - Swanson on Swanson - Signed Autobiography

Item Number:  7004

The rare and highly collectable item of signed Film memorabilia is a hard back book titled ‘Swanson on Swanson’, which is personally signed by Gloria Swanson.

Published in the early 1980, Swanson's 520-page autobiography became a best-seller and was translated into French, Italian and Swedish editions.

The late and great Gloria Swanson (1899 to 1983) exuded something special from every inch of her tiny frame. She was a star or the 1920’s and is best known for her role as Norma Desmond in "Sunset Boulevard" with many people assuming Gloria was Norma in real-life.

Her very candid autobiography reveals a women who was more than just a clotheshorse. Her formal education was limited but like Joan Crawford who came after her, Gloria never stopped learning.

Like many film stars, she endured a string of unhappy marriages and paid the price for her fame and career literally in blood. But there is much happiness in her life. Swanson was the mother of three children, an avid advocate of natural medicines and healthful living with a keen interest in the arts. It was in this book that the author's affair with Joseph Kennedy first became public knowledge.

This hard back book was part of a private collection and is personally signed to the inside cover. She has added the word ‘GREETINGS’ and the year ‘1981’ which was just two years before her death. It is presented in very good condition.

Adding to rarity is the fact that this book is very hard to find, let alone a signed edition so is a rare and very collectable item of memorabilia.
