~The Only Woman~
~NT33-P13: Director Sydney Olcott & Norma Talmadge~
~Plot Synopsis~
Hard luck followed hath Norma Talmadge and her leading man, Eugene O'Brien, during the filming of
her latest picture, "The Only Woman."

Many of the scenes depleting a thrilling shipwreck in mid-ocean, called for unusually rigorous action on
the part of the pair. As the picture will show, they are forced to cling to the frail ralling of a yacht which
is being tossed about like a feather, while huge ocean waves sweep over them. The danger lay not only in
being swept overboard, but also in exposure to the cold salt water.
All one night the couple battled a fierce squall fifty miles out from Los Angeles and finally were
compelled to abandon the yacht, which was washed up on the rocks of Catalina Island and was fast

As a result of being soaked to the skin, both Norma and O'Brien caught severe colds, as well as other
members of the company of sixteen which participated in the scenes.
"The Only Woman," a First National picture produced by Joseph M. Schenck, will be shown at the Martini
Theater for four days starting next Wednesday.
