Gloria Swanson Interview

Mike Wallace Interviews Gloria Swanson




The Harry Ransom Center in Austin, Texas has made available a series of Mike Wallace interviews including one with silent film star, Gloria Swanson.


The Mike Wallace Interview ran from 1957 to 1960, but the Ransom Center collection includes interviews from only 1957 and 1958. In the early 1960s, Mr. Wallace donated to the Ransom Center kinescopes of these programs and related materials, including his prepared questions, research material, and correspondence.


Thanks to Donna Hill of the Rudolph Valentino Homepage site for bringing this to our attention.

    Mike Wallace is such an incredibly overbearing interviewer, but Gloria was so gracious and polite. I’ve now spent quite a bit of time looking through the archive to see who else is interviewed. The Diana Barrymore and Lillian Roth pieces are especially compelling.

    Thanks Graceann, there are a lot of people who dislike Mike Wallace. I’m also interested in the Barrymore and Roth pieces.
