    A Gloria Swanson Group of Mostly Never-Before-Seen Photographs, Circa 1960s. Approximately 20, all original prints with a glossy finish; 6 are small color snapshots depicting the star indoors wearing various ensembles at different times; 14 are black and white 'professional shots' mostly taken at the same time (though a few show her in different environments); also included are a number of other miscellaneous items related to Swanson including 1960s-era black and white headshots and color transparencies of her, photographs of her at public events, newspaper clippings, two playbills [from her "Just for Tonight" theatrical show in Arizona], and a letter typed (and annotated by her in blue ballpoint ink) on her personalized letterhead; dated "July 30, 1968," it discusses the color snapshots and how she does "want them back;" overall, a fun peek into Swanson's private and professional life in the 1960s when she was in her sixties, still going strong.
