Movieland Mystery Photo (Updated)

Dec. 31, 2013, Mystery Photo

And for the last mystery photo of 2013, we have this New Year’s Eve mystery woman.

"Sunset Boulevard"

Yes, it’s Gloria Swanson. And why would there be a photo of Gloria Swanson on New Year’s Eve? To reference this scene, set on a very different New Year’s Eve. (Back of the Head Guy = William Beedle Jr.)

    Oh shoot, that’s Gloria Swanson. A colored version of that same picture appeared on the cover of the March 7, 1925 issue of Liberty magazine.

    In the mid 60’s I got into an elevator in the RCA Building on my way to see a friend who worked at NBC. Two women clad in floor length mink coats rushed in, one exclaiming to the starter: ” Miss Swanson is late for an appointmet! Please send us up at once.” this woman reminds me of her …young Gloria.
