A portrait of Theda Bara on the cover of vintage
Picture-Play Magazine February 15, 1916 issue
Larawang Tribiya 
          Si Theda Bara (tunay na pangalan Theodosia Goodman, 1890-1955) ay bantog na actress ng silent movie na mas kilala sa bansag na “The Vamp” (pinaiksing “vampire”), na patungkol sa isang “sexually predatory woman.” Ang kaniyang screen name, ayon sa The Guinness Book of Movie Facts and Feats, ay ibinigay ng director na si Frank Powell. Sa promotion ng 1917 pelikulang Cleopatra, sinabi ng Fox Studio na ang pangalang Theda Bara ay acronym ng “Arab Death”  batay sa maling pahayag ng press agent ni Bara na siya ay anak ng isang Arab sheik at babaeng Pranses at ipinanganak sa Sahara Desert. Sa katotohanan, siya ay ipinanganak sa Avondale, Cincinnatina, Ohio. Ang kaniyang ama (si Bernard Goodman) ay isang Jewish tailor na galing sa Poland at ang kaniyang ina (si Pauline Louise de Coppett) ay galing sa Switzerland.  Ang “Bara” ay binaliktad na “Arab,” samantalang ang “Theda” ay anagram ng “death.” Noong 1917 tuluyang legal na pinalitan ng pamilyang Goodman ang kanilang apelyido na Bara.
