Valeska Suratt (June 28, 1882 - July 2, 1962). She was a minor league vamp for about 2 years (1915-1917) during the reign of Theda Bara. When Theda's vogue waned, so did Valeska's. She retired from films in 1917. At the height of her film, she was making $5,000 a week. She is pictured here on the cover of the August 1916 Picture Play magazine.
