She paid the bills





















"All they had to do was put my name on a marquee and watch the money roll in."

"When I die, my epitaph should read: She Paid the Bills. That's the story of my private life."

"Nobody gets anything for nothing."


Gloria May Josephine Swanson (27th March 1899 – 4th April 1983)
