Arguably the leading female star of the 1920s, Norma Talmadge is barely remembered today—partly because her genre, the unbridled melodrama of the woman betrayed, has seldom attracted the critical interest accorded silent comedies and action films. Her restrained, naturalistic performance style marked a significant step away from the pantomimic excess of early fiction filmmaking.

In 1917, she met director Rex Ingram and in 1921 they were married during production of “The Prisoner of Zenda” which he directed and in which she appeared as Princess Flavia. The couple sneaked away over one weekend, were married in Pasadena, and returned to work promptly the following Monday. It was also in 1921 that Terry would gain great acclaim as Marguerite in “The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse” (1921) directed by Ingram and starring Rudolph Valentino.
