Theda Bara

13-Days of Halloween…Vamps….

I’m behind… but here we go….
This is for Tuesday….
We cannot think of Halloween without vamps….
Lesley and I love our vampy sirens of silent film…
Our favorite would be Theda Bara.
Theodosia Burr Goodman was her true name.
One of the early sex symbols of American cinema.
The first real “femme fatale”of the screen…
first to be labeled “The Vamp”.
One of our other favorites would be Pola Negri.
So day 13 is dedicated to the “vamps of early cinema”.
