Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Written by Irish-born scenario writer Mary Murillo, Gold and the Woman was merely another Theda Bara "Vamp" melodrama about a woman whose insatiable lust destroys every man in her path. This time she is Juliet De Cordova, a "half-breed" taking revenge on the descendants of a Spanish Conquisdator. The film used flashbacks spanning several centuries, but Bara remained Bara throughout. According to surviving stills (the film itself, sadly, appears to be lost), Theda looked downright frumpy whilst "vamping" leading man Harry Hilliard.
