Unidentified Theda Bara Clip

PostSat Jun 23, 2018 4:36 pm



Here's an interesting newsreel clip of Theda Bara, presumably from Fox Movietone, although the usual watermark is missing. While the beginning of the clip may just be newsreel footage, the final shots are definitely of Theda and a dog in the back seat of a car, presumably from one of her lost Fox films!

The costume somewhat resembles one she wears in the extant The Unchastened Woman (1925), but I couldn't find the sequence on a brief skim of the film, so it warrants more attention. I haven't got a moment to go through her filmography, but it appears to be a modern dress production, so filtering out the costume dramas would be a good start.
