My October 18 Barbara La Marr Program at La Venta Inn

I (Sherri Snyder) am honored to present a program on illustrious silent screen star Barbara La Marr at the historic La Venta Inn on the Palos Verdes Peninsula on Wednesday, October 18.  Hosted by the Palos Verdes Historical Society as part of a fundraising event, my program will feature my one-woman performance as Barbara and slideshow lecture about her astounding life and laudable career.

La Venta Inn, an event and wedding venue, was a getaway for the rich and famous in the 1920s and 1930s.  It was also the setting for Barbara’s final film, The Girl from Montmartre, filmed in 1925 and released in 1926.
