Heart and Soul (Fox, 1917). Lobby Card Set of 9 (11" X 14"). Star Theda Bara broke type in this film, an adaptation of H. Rider Haggard's novel, Jess. In most of her roles, Bara was the original femme fatale: mysterious, kohl-eyed, and deadly. In an effort to change that image, however, Bara took on this role, in which she plays a sweet young girl who sacrifices everything to ensure her sister's happiness. Unfortunately, audiences at the time were unwilling to accept this severe change in Bara's persona, and this film is often cited as the beginning of the end for Bara's career. The movie is now considered lost, and this superb lobby set, consisting of a title card and eight scene cards, may be all that remains to document this important picture. The title card shows foxing in the borders, edge wear, and light smudging, while the scene cards typically have pinholes, moderate edge wear, minor corner bumps and creases, and small edge tears. One card has a chip in the bottom right corner and foxing in the borders, but overall this is a very attractive set - now almost one hundred years old - which contains many incredible images of one of the cinema's earliest stars. Very Fine-.
