Biographical Notes in German: Schauspielerin des amerikanischen Stummfilms, eigentlich Thedosia Goodman. Ihre Mutter, Pauline Louise Goodman, wurde 1861 in der Schweiz geboren, ihr Vater, Bernard Goodman, stammte aus Polen. Ausbildung an der Walnut Hills High School - Avondale, Ohio - 1903 University of Cincinnati - Cincinnati, Ohio. In den Jahren 1905 bis 1914 versuchte sie sich vergeblich als Schauspielerin zu etablieren, bevor Regisseur Frank Powell in den Studios von Fort Lee sie als männerverzehrenden Vamp in "A Fool There Was" lancierte. William Fox startete mit einer bislang nie dagewesenen Publicity Kampagne den Mythos Theda Bara, nach welcher ihr Name ein Anagramm für "Arab Death" war und sie in der Wüste Sahara geboren war.
1917 hatte sie ihren wohl grössten Erfolg mit der Titelrolle in "Cleopatra" unter der Regie von J. Gordon Edwards, der die meisten ihrer Filme inszenierte. 1919 verliess sie Fox, ein Jahr später konnte sie nicht am Broadway mit "The Blue Flame" reussieren. Die Kritiker waren sich damals nicht einig, ob sie die beste oder die schlechteste Schauspielerin ihrer Zeit sei.
Entgegen dem Image, das sie in der Öffentlichkeit bot,führte Theda Bara eine relativ konventionelle Ehe: sie war von 1921 bis zu ihrem Tode mit dem Regisseur Charles J. Brabin verheiratet. Die meisten ihrer Filme gelten heute als verloren. (lhg 2018)
