Queen of Sheba

Found a bit of Betty Blythe from Queen of Sheba, in the Leah Baird collection. There are two, here is one of them. She is lovely, enjoy!

It seems that a little bit of footage may have survived- it has been wrongly identified as part of Theda Bara's CLEOPATRA but comparison with stills shows this is from Queen of Sheba.

Thanks for the link. I had been reading the old threads here that tried to sort out which movie it actually was, so I thought I would post this. I really wanted to see the video, thanks for posting it. I have another still that goes with it, in a different costume also. Maybe this video will help me to identify more in my collection.

Definitely NOT Cleopatra. Very likely Queen of Sheba

On another board someone found a picture of Betty Blythe wearing the same costume. It's tantalizing to find a fragment - the stills suggest it was a beautiful picture. Probably someone cut a reel up for toy projectors.
