Barbara returns to California and is informed by Dr. C. E. Galloway that she exhibits symptoms of incipient pulmonary tuberculosis. Disregarding Galloway’s admonition that she rest, she presses ahead with the next film under her starring contract. Unwilling to continue portraying dimensionless vamp roles, she has taken a stand with her career and insisted upon playing a genuine character in a story with heart interest; she begins work onThe Girl from Montmartre (1926)—concealing her illness and frailty, and determined to make a comeback. She also consults with her attorney, confiding her conviction that Arthur Sawyer and his partner, Herbert Lubin, are cheating her financially, and endeavors to sever her contract with them. A large segment of the chapter entails Barbara’s work onThe Girl from Montmartre; the plot synopsis is presented and Barbara’s valiant struggle to complete the film, despite her advancing illness, is recounted.
