Found on EBay – ‘Salome’

theda_bara_salome_ebay12

What is advertised as original still No. 25-17 of Theda Bara from the lost film “Salome” has been listed on EBay. I have seen enough of these photos to confirm that the production code begins with “25-XX.” The Witzel studios also took publicity shots of Bara in “Salome” and these, naturally, don’t have production code numbers. Bidding starts at $149.18.

    Witzel Studios also shot publicity photos for Cleopatra and Madame Dubarry?.

    It is definitely Salome. Theda lost about 20 pounds between Cleopatra (1917) and Salome (1918), so it is always easy to tell the difference.
