The Delightful Constance Talmadge
27 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Constance Talmadge stars as a dancer in Russia in love with a lieutenant (Tullio Carminati). The trouble is the Grand Duke (Edward Martindel) loves her too so he won't let them marry. The fact that he is married (Rose Dione as the Grand Duchess) is a trifle. Fast paced and very funny once it gets going, The Duchess of Buffalo comes near the end of Talmadge's career. But she is delightful in this slight film and shows again why she was so popular during the teens and 20s.

Carminati would have a so-so career in Hollywood and is best remembered for the Grace Moore hit, One Night of Love. Talmadge, who would become a star in 1916's Intolerance, would reign through the silent period but retired when talkies came in. Constance Talmadge remained the only major silent star to never try the talkies. Her advice to sister Norma Talmadge was to retire, but Norma made a few unsuccessful attempts at the new medium.

And Chester Conklin has some good scenes as the hotel manager.
