Paul Swift (August 18, 1934 - October 7, 1994)

Paul Swift (August 18, 1934 — October 7, 1994) was an American film actor.

Between 1970 and 1977 he appeared in roles in four of the early feature films directed by John Waters. He additionally appeared as himself in two documentary films.

Swift's most notable role is his appearance as The Egg Man in Pink Flamingos (1972). Aside from that, he played mostly bit parts.

Because of his work with Waters, Swift is considered one of the Dreamlanders, Waters's ensemble of regular cast and crew members.
