Anita Loos and the Talmadge Girls
Recently finished reading The Talmadge Girls by Anita Loos. This book is an anecdotal biography of film stars Norma Talmadge and Constance Talmadge (and to a lesser extent Natalie Talmadge, the sister who married Buster Keaton). It is a very good read. I liked Loos' writing so much (her own life story is intertwined with that of the Talmadge sisters) that I followed it up with a dip into the recently published Anita Loos Rediscovered. Some day I will have to read more about Loos' life and career. She is a really interesting figure.
