A Vampire She Was


I had to buy that book after reading the intriguing synopsis here.
I loved it, especially the shocking ending.
I felt sorry for the guy being used by Theda though.
Just like The Fool in A Fool There Was (1915).
The film that made Theda a star and one of the few that wasn't lost in a fire.


Theda plays The Vampire who drains men of everything but blood.




Many women tried to be like her.
There's even songs about it.
Since Sarah Saw Theda Bara is one of them.
You can listen to it here.

Theda said "there's a little bit of vampire instinct in every woman."

She last appeared as a vampire in 1937.
At a costume party thrown by Mr. & Mrs. Basil Rathbone.
This photo from it was in Life magazine:

  1. Imagine my surprise this morning when I saw my book cover on the top of my reading list. I'm very glad that you enjoyed the story, Holly. Theda, even to this day, is inspirational, and I can see that she inspired you to do a full post about her at Holly's Horrorland.

    I had no idea that a song had been written abut her. I gave the song a listen and yep, it pretty much covered her bases.

    Thank you so much for doing this post, Holly! You made my day!
