John and Barbara had an intense affair during the filming of Fox Studios’ St. Elmo in 1923.
From John Gilbert`s bio, written by his daughter, Leatrice Gilbert Fountain:
Leatrice Joy (wife of John) states, "That night the phone rang about two in the morning. I answered it, and it was Barbara La Marr. She said, ‘Oh, Leatrice darling, may I speak to Jack, please?’ (John Gilbert was known as Jack to his friends). I said, ‘Of course, dear,’ and then threw the phone under the bed and went back to sleep."
Dark Lover is a brilliant book...a must read for all silent fans.
