Loretta Swit plays Eleanor Roosevelt

Loretta Swit is best known for her 11 years playing “Hot Lips’ Houlihan” on the television series M*A*S*H. But the New Jersey native started on the stage and that’s where she’s been showcasing her talents lately in the one woman show, Eleanor, based on a novel about first lady Eleanor Roosevelt. Swit brings the famous woman to life at the Auditorium Theatre and stops by the Morning Shift to talk about the role and her career in acting. (Flickr/Marion Doss)
