Nearly all of Miss Swanson's sixty-six motion pictures, 1914-1975, are represented by film stills and other materials. This collection does include some of Swanson's film holdings, though most were acquired by George Eastman House in 1967. Coverage is sparsest for her beginnings at Essanay Studios, Sennett/Keystone Studios, and Triangle Company. The Famous Players-Lasky Corp./Paramount Pictures period, 1919-1926, is more comprehensively documented with groups of stills and scrapbooks, clippings, correspondence, contracts, and publicity items. The substantial correspondence, financial, legal, and production records of the United Artists years, 1925-1933, occupy forty boxes, yet only meagre files for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, Fox Films, and Columbia Pictures Corp. represent Swanson's career for the remainder of the 1930s. Records of the scattered later films with RKO Radio Pictures, Paramount Pictures Corp., Warner Brothers, Titanus-Lux Films, and Universal City Studios, Inc. ... Read More
