Olive Thomas in The Flapper - (1920)
In 1918, she signed with David O Selznick. “But I want to create a certain role, you see Mary is the kid in  pictures; Norma does drama; Constance is the flippant, flighty wife;  Dorothy the hoyden; Nazimova is exotic and steeped in mystery, my Jack plays boys, while I–I–why don’t you see, I am just nothing at all!” In  fact, Olive was the first movie flapper, or “baby vamp”.
