(no dust jacket, as issued) [very light foxing to top edge, slight bumping to top corners]. (B&W photographs) Biography of a "nice Jewish girl from Cincinnati" who achieved screen notoriety as Theda Bara, the quintessential vampire (not the kind that bites your neck) of her day -- despite the fact that, in the author's words, "her films were trite, often poorly acted, extravagant and crude." (So when has THAT been any impediment to movie stardom?)
