Silent movie star drama queen Norma Talmadge was born in 1893.Her drunken father deserted the family one Christmas morning when the children were little,and left his wife to raise the three girls alone.The 3 sisters were actresses essentially Constance and Natalie Talmadge.There was never any professional jealousy between them;they were lifelong friends and supported each other through the good times and bad times. Norma entered pictures at the age of fourteen,with no previous stage experience.She is considered one of the foremost emotional actresses of the day,and is equally capable in light comedy and character roles.Because of her ability to excel in every branch of screen art,she has been universally nick-named "The Queen of Versatility”.She made a handful of early talkie films, including the surviving "Du Barry, Woman of Passion" in 1930, but then she decided she had had enough, that she was rich enough to retire and enjoy life.She died of a stroke at age 62,on Xmas Eve,1957 in Las Vegas.
