The dead do tell tales...
Join me at Hollywood Forever Cemetery on Saturday, October 21, as I once again don my seamed stockings and paint on my bee-stung lips to portray silent screen vamp Barbara La Marr in a one-woman performance piece that I wrote about her extraordinary, oftentimes scandalous life. The performance is part of the Los Angeles Art Deco Society's 34th Hollywood Forever tour (which I have produced this year). Also featured on the tour are the stories---told by performers and historians---of silent screen god Rudolph Valentino, action hero Douglas Fairbanks, actress and William Randolph Hearst mistress Marion Davies, filmmaker Cecil B. DeMille, slain director William Desmond Taylor, and over twenty other legendary stars, movie moguls, and pioneers who made Hollywood and history.
Tickets are selling quickly and are expected to sell out! For remaining tour times, ticket information, and more details, please click here.

To learn more about the life and work of the talented Miss La Marr, feel free to peruse the tribute website I created for her: www.barbaralamarr.net. My upcoming biography, Barbara La Marr: The Girl Who Was Too Beautiful for Hollywood, written at the request of her son, Donald Gallery, and to be released December 6, 2017, may be pre-ordered on Amazon or the University Press of Kentucky website.
