She died of cancer and heart disease in Los Angeles, California and was interred in the Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery in Westwood, California. Theda Bara has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and in 1994, she was honored with her image on a United States postage stamp designed by caricaturist Al Hirschfeld. She was also the star of Our Miss Brooks, a sitcom which aired on both radio (1948 - 1952) and television (1952 - 1956). She died of cancer in Los Angeles, California and was interred in the Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery in Glendale, California. She played in many movies, including Grease, in which she played the principal, and the secretary in Anatomy of a Murder. Although she attempted several comebacks, she spent the remainder of her life as a prominent hostess in Hollywood and her native Cincinnati. Eve Arden (April 30, 1908–November 12, 1990) was an American actress born as Eunice Quedens in Mill Valley, California. In 1926, five years after marrying British-born American film director Charles Brabin (1883-1957), Theda Bara retired.
Such outfits were banned from Hollywood films after the Hays Code went into effect a few years later, which may have been a factor in declining interest in her films, which could no longer be commercially shown in the United States. Bara was a sex symbol of the era, and in a number of her films appeared in risqué transparent costumes that left little to the imagination. A large portion of her films are now lost, to the regret of later generations of fans. She made her Broadway debut in "The Devil" (1908), and her film debut was a bit part in "The Stain" (1914), directed by Frank Powell for Pathé Frères.
Briefly known professionally as Theodosia de Coppett, Theda Bara made more than 40 feature films between 1914 and 1926 of which complete prints of only three still exist. After attending the University of Cincinnati for two years, she worked in theater productions, moving to New York City in 1908. She attended Walnut Hills High School in 1899-1903 and lived at 823 Hutchins Avenue. Named for the daughter of American politician Aaron Burr, Theodosia Burr Goodman was born in Avondale, Ohio, a wealthy suburb of Cincinnati, a daughter of a Swiss mother and a Jewish tailor father, and though she achieved fame as a raven-haired vamp, she was actually born blonde.
She was nicknamed "The Vamp", short for vampire, slang for a sexy predatory woman at the time. Bara was one of the most popular screen actresses of the time. Theda is short for Theodosia, and Bara was the middle name of her maternal grandmother. As her stage name is an anagram for "Arab Death" an urban legend claims that it was coined for that reason, but it was not.
Theda Bara was the stage name of Theodosia Burr Goodman (July 29, 1885 - 7 April 1955), a silent film actress.
