Perhaps a wee-bit more impressive than the subject of this article was the woman who wrote the thing: the versatile and observant Adela Rogers St. Johns (1894 1988), a veteran journalist from Hollywood's earliest days, she also made her mark as a screen writer, police reporter and novelist; and she makes it quite clear in the attached article that she felt blessed indeed to have made the acquaintance of silent film actress Norma Talmadge (1894 1957):

"Norma Talmadge loves life, all the way down to the last drop in the cup. Her hands reach out for more of it without fear or favor. She is vitally interested in people. The staring throngs bother her not at all, either she doesn't see them, or she stares back. She adores parties and lights and gaiety and excitement and people; lots of people! with new ideas and new emotions and new faces."

Read a 1951 profile of a future First Lady: the young Nancy Reagan.
