About Barbara La Marr

Barbara La Marr born July 28, 1896, Yakima, Washington, died January 30, 1926, Altadena, California

American stage and film actress, cabaret artist and screenwriter.

La Marr was known as "The Girl Who Is Too Beautiful", after a Hearst newspaper feature writer, Adela Rogers St. Johns, saw a judge sending her home during the police beat in Los Angeles because she was too beautiful and young to be on her own.

Although her film career flourished, she also embraced the fast-paced Hollywood nightlife, remarking in an interview that she slept no more than two hours a night.

On January 30, 1926, La Marr died of drug related uberculosis and nephritis in Altadena, California at the age of 29. She was interred in a crypt at Hollywood Cathedral Mausoleum, in the Hollywood Forever Cemetery.

For her contribution to the motion picture industry, La Marr has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 1621 Vine Street.
