Fantasy Femme Linda Harrison who played mute human Nova in Planet of the Apes (1968) and Beneath the Planet of the Apes (1970) appears as herself on the new deluxe DVD release of Sunset Boulevard in a making of featurette. Linda talks about working with diva Gloria Swanson in the movie Airport 1975 where she played her assistant. Below is what Linda told me about Swanson when I interviewed her:

“She was a prima donna. “But I don’t mean that in a bad way. Swanson was an actress of statue for many years and she carried that role off camera. I think she enjoyed working with me because I was married to a [Dick] Zanuck. She told me about her affair with Joe Kennedy. And she shared with me what it was like to be an actress in that era. It was interesting hearing her stories.”
