Francine Larrimore (August 22, 1898 – March 7, 1975) was a stage and screen actress. Born in France, she came to the United States when a child. Her parents were J. Louis La Remee and Sarah Adler, a sister of the Yiddish stage star Jacob Adler and not to be confused with Jacob's third wife also named Sara. Jacob's children Stella and Luther are her cousins. Her sister Stella Larrimore (1905–1960) was married to the stage and screen star Robert Warwick.
Larrimore began her stage career in 1910. In 1926 she created the role of Roxie Hart in the Broadway premiere of Chicago. She played Theodora Gloucester in the 1921 Broadway comedy Nice People. She appeared in a string of silent films in the 1910s i.e. The Devil's Darling (1915, Mutual), The Princess From The Poorhouse aka The Royal Pauper (1917, Edison) and Max Wants a Divorce (1917, Essanay) co-starring Max Linder. Most are now considered lost films.
Her sound films number just two. She disappeared from acting in 1939.
