~Cleopatra~
1917
~Whatever Cleopatra May Have Been She Was No Hypocrite~

~In this mighty production the career of Egypt's Vampire Queen is shown from beginning to end.
Her conquests of the three greatest men of her time-not by armies but by her womanly wiles. The
costumes worn by Miss Bara are one of the striking features of the production. Words can hardly
describe the costume she wears in the scene when she first meets the noble Ceaser. Theda Bara
presents a picture that out rivals is splendor and sensuousness anything that the real Cleopatra may
have attempted. "Cleopatra" is a production that you will never forget.
