Excellent biography of the star who brought the word
"vamp" into the English language. So little is known
of Bara because so few of her films have survived, but Golden
offers an absorbing overview of Bara's life. While acknowledging
the hoopla and press agentry of the day, the biography gives a
very matter-of-fact account of Bara's life in and out of the studio.
Great photos, too.
