x Alma Rubens x (Red Roses in a Black Onyx Jar)

A chorus girl falls ill; Alma Rubens steps in and takes the role

Franklyn Farnum persuades her to leave the troupe

Farnum gets a part in a film, she follows him

Marries Farnum

Divorces Farnum after one month

Becomes Leading Lady in films

Very successful

Retires from films temporarily

Marries again

Found it hard to get roles because of Cocaine Addiction

In and out of mental institutions

Her addiction consumes her

Arrested on Narcotics Charge

Released on Bail

Dies of Pneumonia a week later.
