A Fool There Was (1915) is an American silent film drama, produced by William Fox, and starring Theda Bara. The film was long considered controversial for such risqué intertitle cards as “Kiss me, my fool!”
The film is one of the few movies featuring Theda Bara still in existence today. It popularised the term “vamp” (short for vampire), referring to a femme fatale who causes the moral degradation of those she seduces, first fascinating and then exhausting her victims.
