Constance Talmadge ACTOR


Constance Talmadge was born on April 19th, 1898 in Brooklyn, New York with the middle name Alice to parents Fred and Peg Talmadge.  She was raised in New York City and had a very difficult childhood. Her father was an alcoholic and abandoned her family leaving her mother to raise her and her sisters, Natalie and Norma.
It was her sister Norma who first became involved in the entertainment industry as an actress and Constance soon followed appearing in such shorts as, "In Bridal Attire" (1914), "Intolerance: Love's Struggle Throughout the Ages" (1916), "The Fall of Babylon" (1919), "A Pair of Silk Stockings" (1918), "Happiness a la Mode" (1919), "Romance and Arabella" (1919), "Wedding Bells" (1921) and "The Primitive Lover" (1922).  Throughout her career she appeared in more then eighty films.
As her career progressed as a top female silent film star actress she also started her own production company.  As the silent film era came to an end and sound films came about, she retired from the industry and did not choose to make the transition.  Her sister Norma did appear in a couple talkies but then for the most part all three sisters chose to leave Hollywood.  Constance went on to take on other business ventures such as in 1927 when she and her sister opened the Talmadge park real estate development in San Diego, California. 
Throughout her lifetime she married a total of four times.  Her first husband was John Pialoglou whom she wed in 1920 and divorced just two years later.  She then married Alastair William Mackintosh in 1926 and again a very short lasting marriage ended in 1927.  Her third time to wed was to Townsend Netcher in 1929 and this marriage came to an end in 1939.  She then married for her fourth and final time to Walter Michael Giblin in 1939 and they were together until he passed away on May 1st, 1964. 

Constance resided in Los Angeles, California and in her later years she suffered from alcohol abuse.  On November 23rd, 1973 she passed away from pneumonia in Los Angeles.
Constance as one of the first people to have her handprints and footprints imprinted at the Grauman's Chinese Theatre and was also honored with a street in Hollywood, California named after her and her sister, Norma.  She was also given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for her contribution to the Motion Picture Industry.
