Is this Briggitte or Theda? I’ve just seen this picture all over Tumblr and people are saying this is Briggitte Helm and this is Theda Bara. So can you please help me out.

IMHO: neither. I have seen hundreds of pictures of Theda Bara (more than a hundred alone used as publicity for Cleopatra) and none are similar to that. Usually haircut, costume, accessory or pose would be similar to another picture from a series to help identify, but nothing matches. I am much less familiar with Briggitte Helm but believe facial contours do not match with the known picture.

Neither. But I'm not sure who she is, sorry!

It's an Italian silent film star, Pina Menichelli. Here's the full picture, http://www.flickr.com/photos/truusbobjantoo/2219000581/.
