Résumé Gloria Swanson was Hollywood's first successful glamour queen. Realizing her box office value early in her career, she took control of her life. Soon she was not only producing her own films, she was choosing her scripts, selecting her leading men, casting her projects, creating her own fashions, guiding her publicity, and living an extravagant and sometimes extraordinary celebrity lifestyle. She also collected a long line of lovers (including Joseph P. Kennedy) and married men of her choosing (including a French marquis, thus becoming America's first member of "nobility"). As a devoted and loving mother, she managed a quiet success of raising three children. Perhaps most important, as a keen businesswoman she also was able to extend her career more than sixty years. Her comeback in Billy Wilder's Sunset Boulevard catapulted her back into the limelight, but it also created a long-misunderstood persona. This biography sets the record straight.--From publisher description.
