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.
