Movie Info

Legendary silent-screen "vamp" Theda Bara played the title character in Fox's The Vixen. The story concerns two sisters, Elsie and Helen Drummond (Theda Bara and Mary Martin). Helen is sweetness-and-light personified, while predatory Elsie is her sister's polar opposite. When Helen falls in love with Martin Stevens (A.H. Van Buren), Elsie steals Stevens away without so much as working up a sweat. Eventually, Elsie runs through Stevens' fortune, at which point she unceremoniously dumps him. But when she woos and wins Helen's next boyfriend Harley Knoles (Herbert Heyes), it is Elsie who suffers -- and suffers -- and suffers.

Miss Bara is at her best.

December 16, 2019 | Full Review…

Theda Bara returns to her evil ways with a vengeance and she piles enough wickedness in The Vixen to satisfy even the most morbid of her admirers.
