Did You Know?
To understand those days, you must consider that people believed what they saw on the screen. Nobody had destroyed the grand illusion. Audiences thought the stars were the way they saw them. Why, women kicked my photographs as they went into the theaters where my pictures were playing. And once on the streets of New York, a woman called the police because her child spoke to me.
Following her death, she was interred as Theda Bara Brabin at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California.
Often played the role of a sexy, foul temptress whose beauty and dangerous allure led good-hearted men to their doom.
