About A Fool There Was

Not rated
Year Released:
Drama, Silent/Live Accompaniment

Theda Bara stars in the role that made her a star, as the Vampire, a seductive ‘other woman’ who does not care about the consequences of her actions, using her sexuality to achieve wealth and status. Composer Philip Carli’s new score— a Midwest premiere, performed by Jacobs School of Music students and Carli—makes colors emerge from the film’s despair and highlights the emotions that seep through to its final moments.
