A Fool There Was

1915 NR

Theda Bara, one of only a few sex symbols in the early 1900s, stars in this 1915 silent film classic featuring the original organ score. Bara plays a vamp who uses her charms to seduce and corrupt a moral Wall Street lawyer, John Schuyler (Edward Jose). A Fool There Was was long considered controversial for such risque title cards as "Kiss me, my fool!"
