Gloria Swanson is ready for her close-up. The silent movie star and box office sensation ruled Hollywood in the 1920s and returned with a vengeance with a sensational turn in Billy Wilder's Sunset Boulevard. We'll hear Swanson recreate her Oscar-nominated role of Norma Desmond in a Lux Radio Theatre adaptation (originally aired on CBS on September 17, 1951). We'll also hear her one and only visit to Suspense - "Murder by the Book" (originally aired on CBS on July 10, 1947).
