Gladys Swarthout (1900 - 1969 was an American mezzo-soprano opera singer and entertainer.

Swarthout's role as Carmen was well respected. She regularly worked eight hours a day with vocal coaches, and would spend an hour or more singing duets with her husband, Frank Chapman, also an opera singer.

She advocated inflating balloons and blowing bubbles to strengthen her lungs. She also wrote a semi-autobiographical novel entitled Come Soon, Tomorrow: The Story of a Young Singer first published in 1943 that went through at least seven printings.

Furthermore she starred in five films for Paramount Pictures, including Rose of the Rancho, Romance in the Dark, Give Us This Night, and Ambush.

For the movie Champagne Waltz with Fred MacMurray, she sang her songs in five languages, including French, German, Italian, and Spanish for the foreign versions of the films. Swarthout also performed on a number of opera shows on television.
