1000 Words: Fishing Tackle on TV

1000 Words

This week in Hollywood Goes Fishing we get a great photo ca. 1950 of screen legend Gloria Swanson holding a pair of fish (11 pound King Mack and a Bonita), with an Ocean City surf reel in the background. It was taken at the Flamingo at Miami Beach, Florida. Swanson (1899-1983) is best remembered for her iconic role in Sunset Boulevard, but she was also nominated two additional times for Academy Awards. A tremendously gifted actress, she was truly a legend of the screen.
