Constance Talmadge has fun with food in “East Is West” (1922)

"East Is West" was considered a lost film until 2005, when a copy was discovered in The Netherlands which has been subsequently restored.  Irving Thalberg dated Miss Talmdage (before he married Norma Shearer), and was very smitten with her.


Thank you all so much for being here (except the spam and porn). Hope you have a lovely time!

Exactly! Come on people, the odds were in your favour and everything…
