Beverly Hills, CA: United Artists, 1929. Vintage borderless studio still photograph of actors Constance Talmadge and Andre Roanne from the 1929 silent film.

Based on Jean Vignaud's 1928 novel.

Talmadge, sister of actresses Norma and Natalie, starred in her first major role in D.W. Griffith's "Intolerance" (1916). Unlike her sisters, Constance preferred to appear in light romantic comedies, such as "A Pair of Silk Stockings" (1918), "Wedding Bells" (1921), and "The Primitive Lover" (1922). Although many of her films are now considered lost, Talmadge is now best remembered for originating the tradition of preserving footprints in concrete outside Grauman's Chinese Theatre after accidentally stepping into wet concrete in front of the theatre in 1927. As with many silent film stars, her career faded with the advent of sound film, and by the 1930s, she and her sisters had retired from the screen.

7.25 x 9.75 inches. Very Good plus overall.
