“Arriving with the Marquis tomorrow morning. Stop. Please arrange ovation.” -Telegram sent to Hollywood from Swanson on her way home from France

It was only recently I saw Sunset Boulevard. Crazy I know, what have I been doing with my life? It’s a slow burn. Will Smith doesn’t save the world and there are no car chases or buildings exploding, but it’s gripping and dramatic and witty and you will be amazed at how many lines are now a part of our vernacular.

I immediately googled Gloria Swanson and this is what it threw up. For a Boardwalk Empire obsessed girl, manna from heaven. If ever you needed inspiration to throw a dress up party. Please, an invite would be awesome.
