    Description

    Gloria Swanson "Sunset Blvd." Evening Gown. Silent-era starlet Gloria Swanson was one of the few actors who survived the switch to talkies (she even learned how to sing for "Music in the Air" in 1934), but the kind of movies she was known for were no longer being made by that point. In spite of that, or perhaps because of it, she gave a career-defining performance as an actress desperate for a comeback in the film noir classic "Sunset Boulevard" in 1950. Featured in this lot is an exquisite black evening gown worn by Swanson in the film. A great item in wonderful condition.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
