As many of you know, actress Gloria Swanson was one of Croton's most famous residents...so we were delighted to see that our friends at European Film Star Postcards featured her in one of their IMPORTED FROM THE USA postings...

sure our Croton Historical Society knows all about it) and video too...click on the photo to see a German postcard.

FROM EUROPEAN FILM STAR POSTCARDS - IMPORTED FROM THE USA - GLORIA SWANSON
American actress Gloria Swanson (1899–1983) is best known for her role as the reclusive silent film star Norma Desmond in Sunset Boulevard
(1950). Swanson herself was one of the most prominent stars and fashion
icons during the silent film era. She often played under the direction
of Cecil B. DeMille, but also produced her own films, including Sadie Thompson
(1928). Her fashion, hair styles, and jewels were copied around the
world and by the middle 1920s, she was the highest-paid actress in
Hollywood. In France she made her personal favourite of all her films,
the now lost Madame Sans-Gêne (1925). READ MORE HERE http://filmstarpostcards.blogspot.nl/2015/11/imported-from-usa-gloria-swanson.html
