ancient Egypt: Cleopatra

Sadly, this movie is now lost but we can perhaps get a feel for the interpretation from the costumes and from some of Theda Bara’s other roles: Rosa in Sin; The Siren Of Hell; Laura in Eternal Sappho; Elsie in The Vixen; Lorette in She Devil; and Salome.

Theda Bara’s movie career only ran from 1914 to 1926 but in 1917 she packed in seven other movies as well as Cleopatra

If anyone knows the makeup credits for this movie please email me.
