Marc Theda Bara Bolan

Posted by – October 25, 2007

I did decide, after seeing the Theda Bara documentary, that Marc Bolan was her reincarnation. (Or a better guess is that Bolan knew about Bara, & was borrowing her vamp for his stage persona.)

What’s interesting to me is that both were the sex symbols of their time – one male, one female – and yet they look nearly exactly alike.

    Actually, one hight point of my life was meeting Louise Brooks when I was a teenager (and I actually knew who she was – I’d seen “Pandora’s Box” and “Diary of a Lost Girl” weeks before meeting her). Now there was a beautiful woman and great actress in her day. And she was so nice!

    Helen, when you put in two pictures, one on the left, one on the right, I lose some of the text in between (I.E. 7).
