Like virtually all of Theda Bara's starring vehicles, The Eternal Sappho is a lost film. Contemporary historians, however, have been able to piece together its plot from publicity releases and the studio's cutting continuity. In this one, Bara plays a contemporary woman who imagines that she's under the spell of libertine Greek poet Sappho. Her quest for eroticism rather than true love proves disastrous. The film's script was taken (as far as possible, it seems) from the best-selling novel by Alphonse Daudet.
