Theda Bara Poster Cleopatra 1917 Vintage Movie Poster
Theda Bara was an American silent film and stage actress. Bara was one of the more popular actresses of the silent era and one of cinema's early sex symbols. Theda Bara was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, as Theodosia Goodman, on July 29, 1885.
Bara was known for wearing very revealing costumes in her films. Such outfits were banned from Hollywood films after the Production Code (a.k.a. the Hays Code) started in 1930 and then was more strongly enforced in 1934. It was popular at that time to promote an actress as mysterious, with an exotic background.
Bara is unusually cast as a nearly virginal nurse and actress. She does manage to get one man to blow his brains out before she reforms and marries an Episcopal priest
* Theda Bara Quotes:
"To be good is to be forgotten. I'm going to be so bad, I'll always be remembered."
"I started out as a star and remained a star."
"There's a little bit of vampire instinct in every woman."
