Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
That cinematic "vampire" Theda Bara played the wicked wife of a Pennsylvania foundry owner who not only kills her own stepson with her insatiable lust, but almost destroys the entire town in the process. The flamboyant Miss Bara was more ludicrous than ever, but Destruction proved to be a box office blockbuster which after a couple of misfires re-established her as the screen's foremost femme fatale. Bara's usual director, J. Gordon Edwards, was otherwise engaged and the film was directed by a nonentity named Will S. Davis.
