"Camille" (1921) is a drama, included in our program to illustrate
the work and contributions of our star Patsy Ruth Miller.
This is just the second film of Patsy Ruth Miller and the one in which she
played her first credited role. She was 17. Two years later she would
achieve fame starring in the role of Esmeralda in "The Hunchback of Notre
Dame", where she partnered with Lon Chaney and Norman Kerry. Thus, in
"Camille" (1921) we can see the beginning of Patsy Ruth Miller's rise
to stardom. The film is also notable for its rich decors and costumes.
