Well I am vamped.
The ice cream blonde, I think that’s what they called her. Funny and gorgeous.
Love this. BTW, did I tell you I was Theda Bara one year for Halloween? I wonder if Katy Perry got the idea for her hair from Theda. Not that this has that much to do with this gorgeous pic. Or whether this is a lost film.
Okay, I assume you wore a wig? I wonder about Katy, that hair is very Vampish…
Yes, it is, and Katy is a natural blonde.
Maybe it was a teenage rebellion that became a trademark?
I don’t think so. Katy has seriously pursued her career since she was a kid.
What a great photo. I found the film described as “…a combination of hearty laughter and artistic beauty…” in a 1928 newspaper.
We’ll have to search this one out — I love the description you found!
