The Lion's Bride - Gloria Swanson and Madonna

Cecil B. DeMille's Male & Female (1919) and Mary Lambert's Like a Virgin (1984)


I'm fascinated by both Swanson and Madonna and in my bizarre head I've always seen them as kindred. They both hang in the same room.


  1. i knew YOU would probably be the only one!!! xo

  2. On my 30th Birthday I was given a print of the "Lion's Bride" artwork and to this day, it is one of my price possessions. I also own the "Male and Female" on DVD specifically for the lion's den scene. Love Gloria. Love Madonna.
