Theda Bara was my favorite silent film actress in high school (is my only-childness showing?). Her studio so successfully branded her as an evil vamp, specifically "The Wickedest Woman in the World," that she received loads of hate mail from the clean and decent women of the country, cursing and chastising her wretched on-screen behavior. Teenaged goth idol hellooooo!
This one is particularly impressive, viewed large. Damn, Gina!
