The tragic Barbara LaMarr made her final film appearance in The Girl From Montmartre. LaMarr is cast as Parisian cabaret dancer Emilia, who finds herself under the scrutiny of aristocratic British military officer Jerome Hautrix (Lewis Stone), who catches her act while on furlough during WWI. Convinced that Emilia is of noble birth, Hautrix tracks her down after the war, determined to trace her family tree. In the process, the two mismatched souls fall in love. Girl From Montmartre was intended purely as a Barbara LaMarr vehicle, but the actress's death from drug addiction during production necessitated a hasty rewrite, shifting the story emphasis to her co-star Lewis Stone.
