The Love Mart is a 1927 American silent drama film directed by George Fitzmaurice and featuring Boris Karloff. The film is lost.[1][2][3]



This film had the original title of Louisiana, as surviving publicity materials indicate; it was First National Pictures' production #103.[4]

Survival status[edit]

No copies of The Love Mart are currently known to exist. However, the Library of Congress has preserved some footage related to the production featuring Billie Dove. The purpose of the footage appears to have been to test some of Dove's hairstyles for the film. Still frames taken from this 'Hair Test' were posted on internet forums in February 2012.[5]
