Theda Bara


American actress called "The Vamp" who was the embodiment of the silent screen image of sexuality run amok, a product of publicity hype. All of her films were made in just four years, from 1915-1919. Bara's works included "Salome" and "Cleopatra."

She died of abdominal cancer on 7 April 1955 at age 69 in Los Angeles.

Source Notes

Penfield Collection has incorrect date of 20 July 1890 and speculative time of 10:45 PM. An old file has 11:00 PM CST.

Sy Scholfield quotes birth date of "July 29, 1885" from Vamp: The Rise and Fall of Theda Bara by Eve Golden (Vestal, 1998), page 10. No source is given but an article in The Cincinnati Enquirer (29 April 1951, page C8) reports that she graduated Walnut Hills high school in 1903, and another article in the same newspaper (1 March 1996, page E1) states she attended the University of Cincinnati from 1903 to 1905. These dates are consistent with a birth year of 1885.
