My Barbara La Marr Article in the Palos Verdes Pulse

Wednesday, May 06, 2020

I was recently asked by the Palos Verdes Pulse to write an article about silent screen star Barbara La Marr and the making of her final film, The Girl from Montmartre. Filmed partly on California's beautiful Palos Verdes Peninsula in 1925, the film was Barbara's attempt at a career comeback shortly before her untimely passing at age twenty-nine in 1926. The article, "'A Last Graceful Gesture of Adieu': Barbara La Marr and The Girl from Montmartre," may be read here.*
