Soartful Challenge - Gloria Swanson

Here I go, poking fun again.  But I really did like Gloria.  She was the very definition of a movie star.  In the early 70's, I saw her when she visited a department store for a personal appearance.  I walked 10 blocks in the rain on my lunch hour to get a glimpse of this living legend.  I knew she was quite old at the time and was really curious how she would look.  But clever Gloria!  She wore a large black hat with a brim that scooped over her forehead.  I never really did get a good look at her face, and I don't think anyone else did either.  She was very adept at keeping our attention away from her face, and toward what she was saying!  I, too, love her in Sunset Boulevard. 


  1. Jeanie, you are funny! Your skin treatment cream follows along with my thoughts about the picture.

    Sorry about your dad. You have my sympathy.

  2. Nice to see you back. Was thinking of you while you were away.
    Sorry for your loss Jeanie.
    This piece of art is wonderful. I love your sense of humor.

  3. Sorry to hear about your father passing.

    Thanks for adding your humorous Gloria to the Soartful challenge this week.

    Hope your move goes smoothly.

  4. Sorry to hear about your loss. I am sending my prayers to you and your family.
    This piece is very clever.

  5. Very funny! Thanks for the laugh. I hear they used to shoot those old stars through cheesecloth to diffuse the wrinkles!!!
