Cheesecake, Circa 1915

I'm working on another of those mammoth essays, this about the films of 1915 generally, which I am determined to post by Saturday at the latest.

In lieu of content, how about some photos of the best actresses of that year?

Theda Bara

Francesca Bertini

Geraldine Farrar


Anna Q. Nilsson

Clara Williams

Is there any doubt at all that Theda Bara was the ultimate femme FATALE! Love these pics. I'm planning more art using silent film star images. Nothing compares!

I wish there was more of her work available, especially Cleopatra, which judging from the still photos must have been a real hoot.

Apparently there was no second date with Theda.

But what a way to go.

Hey! Is Theda flipping me off again? I think she is!

But now, Geraldine Farrar ... that's an expression and a gaze to remember! Holy Leaping Lizards!

Theda Bara (Arab Death) had everything to became into a spectacular actress.

About Theda Bara, Have you checked this website? Here you can find a really good gallery of this actress (just in case you didn't know).

A greeting from the snail.
