Professional Career

Delle Bolton initially worked as a model, and after modeling for a few companies, she turned to acting, launching her professional acting career back in the early 1970s, when she was chosen to portray Swan, a Flathead Indian woman in the American western adventure film “Jeremiah Johnson”, which was directed by Sydney Pollack and is based on the life of the legendary mountain man John ‘Liver-Eating’ Johnson, portrayed by Robert Redford in the film.


It premiered on 7 May 1972 at the Cannes Film Festival, becoming the first Western film to be accepted at the festival. The film was met with generally positive reviews from critics, and was a commercial success, grossing over $44 million on a $3 million budget.
