Theda Bara - The First Vamp
An hommage to the first vamp of modern times: Theodosia Burr Goodman aka Theda Bara, for Arab Death (1 century later, occident will create again the arab death menace via the terrorism but it will be for the military not the cinema industry). She will be a star between 1915 and 17 (in France, our ancestors were stuck in the mud of the trenches, they surely have missed her) but more importantly, she will be the most extreme and modern star to have been created by Hollywood as you can see above, with a character more relevant to the present doom and gothic marginal world than the mainstream Hollyworld. I dream one day a similar star will shine again.
