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.


  1. Perhaps Lady Gaga will fill this role...Late 2010, she was in negotiations with Gunther von Hagens, the plastinator who is now suffering from Parkinson's Disease, over performing nude with gestalt plastinates in her Las Vegas tour. A vamp, and performance artists, fused into one woman.

  2. Didn't know that. Thx for the comment
