Musidora: Greek for the gift of muses 
She was friends with Colette and wrote and directed some of her own films. How modern!

Musidora as Irma Vep from “Les Vampires” (by hawkfall)

Fascinating. She (Jeanne Roques) was one of the original femme fatales in silent films. This clip is from 1915.

Wikipedia describes the first incarnations of femme fatales on film as

 …often foreign, usually either of an indeterminate Eastern European or Asian ancestry. She was the sexual counterpart to wholesome actresses such as Lillian Gish and Mary Pickford.

I had the fortune of seeing this film at the Cornerhouse in Manchester (www.cornerhouse.org), on account of trying to learn French before my Erasmus placement. 
Wonderful! View high resolution
