In this delightful memoir, Anita Loos, who wrote many scripts for them and became a close friend of the Talmadge family, describes the antics not only of Norma and Constance - or Dutch, as she was called - but also of their plain sister Natalie, who was married to Buster Keaton, and of their witty mother, Peg, whose sharp perceptions and tongue managed to get the girls into the limelight and keep them there.
