Birthday Girl: Vamp Until Ready

Let's wish a happy 120th birthday to the uniquely bizarre Musidora, the French Theda Bara, star of pioneering movie serial Les Vampires. We see her here in Full - and Considerable - Menace. I wouldn't cross her.

Of all the stars to whom we might send posthumous best wishes, I'm half-afraid she's the one most likely to respond...

  1. Yikes! She's a new one on me, but I am properly spooked.

    She reminds me quite a bit of that scary skull face that briefly flashes onscreen 2 or 3 times in The Exorcist and has haunted me ever since my first viewing of that movie classic some 30+ years ago.
