Most of the time I find ways for you to blow off 30 minutes or so of work. Today however, I have found a way for you to waste away an entire 40 hour work week and be entertained and informed at the same time. All of that sounds like an infomercial doesn't it? So Mike Wallace of 60 Minutes fame used to have an interview program back on ABC in 1957 and 1958. He gave those interviews to the University of Texas and they are all online. I tried to embed them, but I am lazy and there are lots, so you will just have to click over to their site. If you click the link for Gloria Swanson's video it should pop up, but if not, you can click here to see the entire list of interviews. You have to watch the Anthony Perkins one. Oh, and if you can't understand what they are saying, if you click on the T button on the video box, up pops a transcript.
Gloria Swanson, one of Hollywood's most spectacular stars, talks to Wallace about why she is not making films, sex appeal, Hollywood in the 1920s, marriage, plastic surgery, and cancer cures.
