(p.352) Epilogue
Barbara La Marr

Sherri Snyder

University Press of Kentucky

The evolution of Barbara’s legacy, jointly woven by those whose lives interconnected with hers, is highlighted in this section. The ruminations of Robert Carville, Barbara’s dance partner and lover, concerning Paul Bern’s love for Barbara are disclosed, together with a revelation Carville attributes in his memoir to Barbara (spoken on her deathbed) involving the purported one love of her life. The settlement of Barbara’s estate by her father, William, is documented, and her parents’ lives after her death are touched upon. A substantial segment of the chapter is devoted to Barbara’s son, Donald Gallery (a.k.a. Sonny); his adoption at age three by actress ZaSu Pitts and her husband after Barbara’s death, overviews of his childhood and manhood, and his quest to know Barbara and learn the identity of his biological father are underscored. Never-before-released information regarding his parentage is divulged.
