As far as I know, this is the only existing photo of Barbara in her very first film, Broadway Nights.
She was just 20 years old, but easily recognizable on the right hand side of the photo.
It was her only silent film, Sylvia Sidney made her debut in it, and Ann Sothern also appeared, playing a chorus girl
This was filmed in New York in 1927 while she was starring in her first Broadway hit, The Noose, and the only one of her 88 films that I don’t have.
