Barbara La Marr Facts
In 1923 she secretly had a child from one of her numerous affairs. She "adopted" the child to save face and named him Marvin Carville La Marr. After her death in 1926, little Marvin was adopted by good friend Zasu Pitts and her husband Tom Gallery. He was renamed Don Gallery.

Although her foster family maintained she was born in North Yakima, Washington, she always listed Richmond, Virginia as her place of birth on all official documents, including marriage certificates.

On the 1900 and 1910 Censuses for Portland, Oregon, and Fresno, California, it states that Barbara La Marr was born in the state of Washington. In the Los Angeles Times, her sister, Violet Ake, is listed as her half-sister who was from her mother Rose's first marriage. It is highly unlikely that she was adopted, and a tale that she made up for her show business career.
