Norma Talmadge Superstar
28 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Talmadge is the star is this brisk 1916 comedy-drama, and she's quite good. She plays a secretary who keeps getting unwanted attention from her male bosses, so she makes herself dowdy and goes to work as the social secretary for a rich woman. She then gets involved in the household dramas of the rich family in a series of episodes. Talmadge is beautiful and a very good actress. It's easy to see why Norma Talmadge was one of the biggest stars of the 20s. She is, unfortunately, also remembered as being one of the biggest victims of "talkies." Talmadge made 2 talkies and then retired from films. Her New York accent did not match her screen persona as the epitome of romance and charm. This is a good little film, which also boasts Erich Von Stroheim as the Buzzard, Gladden James as the boy friend, Kate Lester as the matriarch, Helen Weer as Elsie, and Nora Cecil as the spinster secretary who "never has a problem with men." Interestingly, this plot was used 20 years later in the Marion Davies film, Ever Since Eve.
