Whose birthday am I celebrating today?

July 29, 2012

Silent screen star, Theda Bara.  Born Theodosia Burr Goodman in Cincinnati, Ohio, on July 29, 1885. She grew up in that city and attended the University of Cincinnati for two years before traveling west.  She was one of Hollywood’s first sex symbols.  Here is a lovely tribute to this star that shows some of her exotic costumes, which contributed to her reputation as a femme fatale.  I wish I has the chutzpah to wear snakes like that.
