Constance Talmadge

Constance Talmadge

Among the first people to place their footprints and handprints in the forecourt of Grauman's Chinese Theatre. To make her panel unique, she walked across it leaving five footprints. (To date, everyone else has stood in the cement leaving two footprints.) Her panel is located directly behind the box office.

Aunt of Buster Keaton Jr. and Bob Talmadge.

Constance Talmadge was a silent movie star born in Brooklyn, New York, and was the sister of fellow actresses Norma Talmadge and Natalie Talmadge.

Daughter of Margaret Talmadge.

Ex-sister-in-law of Buster Keaton, George Jessel, Joseph M. Schenck.

First marriage was a double wedding; the other couple was Dorothy Gish and James Rennie.

In 1927, the Talmadge sisters opened the Talmadge Park real estate development in San Diego, California, USA. Now known as the Talmadge district, the development contains streets named for each of the sisters. The district is located about one mile southwest of the San Diego State University campus.

Interviewed in "Talking to the Piano Player: Silent Film Stars, Writers and Directors Remember" by Stuart Oderman (BearManor Media).

Like many silent film stars, she rarely gave her real birth year. The most common years given for her birth are 1898, 1899, and 1900. The years 1903-1973 are engraved on her tomb marker.

Nicknamed "Dutch" because, as a child, she was a chubby tomboy with blonde hair and brown eyes that made her look "like a little Dutch boy."

Talmadge Street in Hollywood, California, is named for Constance and her sister Norma 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.

Younger sister of Norma Talmadge and Natalie Talmadge.
