viviensleigh: “ Gloria Swanson photographed for Sadie Thompson, 1928 ”

Gloria Swanson and Raoul Walsh in "Sadie Thompson" (1928). Walsh also directed. Swanson produced the film with financial backing from Joe Kennedy Sr., with whom she also was having an affair. I thought it was a good film, although I thought Lionel Barrymore as the moralist who hounds Sadie chewed the scenery a bit. I knew Walsh as a director, but never saw him act; he was excellent. However, he lost his eye in a car accident a year later and became strictly a director after that.
