Silent Actress Theda Barra (real name Theodosia Goodman) was know for her sexy parts and her courage to wear very reveling clothing. Sadly enough, most of her films are now lost. She was the original “Vamp” who was a popular character in silent films. Vamp is short for Vampire. An evil woman who would bring good men down to their doom with sex. Rumor has it that her ghost haunts several sites in Hollywood where she worked and an old hotel in Ventura, California. Here ghostly parties are still heard in the wee hours of the night.
