GiacomoPuccini's 1896 {{opera}} ''La Bohème'', loosely based on the novel ''Scènes de la vie de bohème'' by Henri Murger, is one of the best-loved and most frequently performed operas today. It is also the (even looser) basis for the RockOpera ''Theatre/{{Rent}}''.

!!Tropes particular to the 1926 film:

* BloodFromTheMouth: Signaling that Mimi's cough has gotten to a serious stage.
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: Schaunard the musician has a pet monkey that he takes out to the street to do an act. This is how they get the rent in one month when they're particularly broke.
* GaussianGirl: Used liberally for Lillian Gish. This is most notable when Mimi and Rodolphe are at a picnic in the country. In one scene the camera cuts back and forth from a shot of John Gilbert in perfect focus, to a shot of Gish looking all blurry, and back again.
* HookerWithAHeartOfGold: It's subtly implied that Musette is a HighClassCallGirl. There's no other explanation for why she can afford such fine clothes and such a sumptuous dinner table. And she's certainly very kindly and sweet towards poor Mimi.
* LargeHam: Rodolphe in-universe when he's acting out his play, which evidently involves a sword duel and a dramatic rescue of a maiden.
* PsychicLink: At the peak of his success following the debut of his play, Rodolphe thinks about Mimi, wishing that she would come to him. Mimi, dying in a different part of town, hears this and staggers back to Rodolphe's apartment.

* NamesTheSame: Ruggero Leoncavallo wrote his own ''La Bohème'' at the same time as Puccini. Guess whose opera survived.

* VictorianNovelDiseaseVictorianNovelDisease Sort of: as it's VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory, it is a real disease- tuberculosis- and the progression is more realistic than many depictions of it.
