Shot in St. Augustine in 1915, A FOOL THERE WAS stars Theda Bara as "The Vampire," a beautiful but villainous temptress; and Edward José as John Schuyler, a happily married Wall Street lawyer and diplomat who falls for her feminine wiles. When Schuyler gets a telegram calling him to England as a special diplomatic representative, he heads off for the extended trip on a ship. Having been slighted by Mrs. Schuyler, the Vampire sets her sights on her handsome husband and sails away on the same vessel. Two months later, we find Schuyler languishing on an island with his mistress, without a job and questioning his choice. Will he wise up and return to his loving family? Or will he remain ensnared in his lover's clutches?

See the film and beautiful young star promoted via what may have been one of the film industry's first publicity stunts. Proceeds benefit Norman Studios Silent Film Museum, Inc., a nonprofit organization working to preserve Northeast Florida's silent film history and restore Jacksonville's only surviving silent film studio complex.
