Constance Talmadge had her debut in Buddy’s Downfall, AKA Buddy’s First Call. Constance was only briefly a second tier player, by February of 1915 her picture was included in the Motion Picture Magazine Gallery of Picture Players, and with A Girl of the Timber Claims, 1917, she had her first starring role, a vehicle for her unique talents; this was her next to last (Betsy’s Burglar, released in March of 1917) film for Fine Arts-Triangle Pictures, moving to Select Pictures Corp. In 1919 Talmadge would start up her own production company (Constance Talmadge Film Company) with A Temperamental Wife, 1919, being the first title produced and Breakfast at Sunrise, 1927 the last for her namesake. Constance made eighty-three films in fifteen years, with her last short-subject (The She-Devil) released in January of 1916.
Constance Talmadge was the youngest of her family, and being such, it fell upon Constance to act alongside her mother Margaret Talmadge (A Girl of the Timber Claims). Mother Margaret was considered the prototypical Hollywood stage mother, and probably the most intimidating and forceful during all of the silent film era.
