Next, perhaps Croton's most famous notable, Gloria Swanson, in a 1930 blurb for WHAT A WIDOW. Swanson returned to her slapstick roots in this one.
What a Widow! was a 1930 American pre-Code romantic comedy film directed by Allan Dwan and produced by and starring Gloria Swanson.
The film was produced by Joseph P. Kennedy, Sr. and received generally positive reviews and was noted for its animated title sequence created by William Dietz, but was met with lukewarm returns at the box office. READ MORE ABOUT IT HERE.
And finally, spoilers alert, a blog posting from GO RETRO about Croton's Peter Strauss in Rich Man, Poor Man--books one and two.
