A fool there was (1915) is an American silent film drama film, produced by William Fox (producer), and starring Theda Bara. The film was long considered controversial for such risqué intertitle cards as "Kiss me, my fool!" Although A Fool There Was never received a public showing in Great Britain, later Theda Bara films were allowed.
Though the film contains scenes set in England and Italy, the entire movie was filmed in St. Augustine, Florida.
This is one of the few Theda Bara films in existence. The others are: The Unchastened Woman (1925), The Stain (film) (1914), East Lynne (1916 film) (1916), and two short comedies she made for Hal Roach in the mid-1920s. This film showcases Bara's status as the original screen "vamp" (so named for her portrayal of a female vampire).
