Norma Talmadge Facts
Talmadge Street in Hollywood, California, USA is named for Norma and her sister Constance Talmadge. It ran along the west side of Vitagraph's west coast studio where the Talmadges made some of their movies in the 1910s. The studio is now the ABC Television Center, west coast home of the American Broadcasting Company and its Los Angeles station, KABC-TV.

Fooprints of the stars started accidentally when, in 1927, she stepped into wet cement in front of Grauman's Chinese Theater.

Norma Talmadge was the 'inspiration' for Norma Desmond, the grotesque, predatory silent movie queen in Billy Wilder's film Sunset Boulevard (1950).
