What's Inside?

119. Theme 85 ~Entrance~

Edit 3/18/13 – Gloria Crest is for sale……take a look!

This is one of the entrances to GLORIA CREST, the Englewood  New Jersey estate given to Gloria Swanson in the 1920’s by Joseph Kennedy, while they were having a very public affair. Click HERE & skip to paragraph 12 if you’d rather not read the entire article, for the real story.  Any old movie buffs remember Swanson as Norma Desmond in “Sunset Boulevard?”  “Alright Mr. Demille, I’m ready for my close-up.” A classic and likely her most famous role.
