Margaretha Geertruida Zelle in 1897. For the fraction of a second it seemed she tottered there, on her knees, gazing directly at those who had taken her life. Except two single performances, the wartime left no chance for theatre contracts in the Netherlands. We then see Sylvia nude astride the guy as she rides him and he reaches up to touch her breasts while she has sex with him. Were men dressed in uniform the reason for her descent into the abyss? German and French intelligence services had worked together to achieve a common goal: the elimination of Mata Hari.

On February 13th, Mata Hari was arrested and charged with espionage. She seated herself at the edge of the bed and wrote the letters with feverish haste. The marriage got eventually divorced in 1906, officially due to circulating nude photos of Mata Hari. And they share one thing in common: they both played the role of Mata Hari to perfection — one in a movie and the other in real life. Mata Hari adapted the traditional dance she had learnt in Indonesia to choreograph her own risque routines—a modern Salome discarding her veils. Margaretha wanted out of the marriage.

Only in recent years, there were several publications by authors who relied only on facts. Ustinov was there on time. Obviously Mata Hari and her already 74 years old attorney Edouard Clunet, inexperienced in military trials, didn't realize the serious danger of the situation. She had infrequent contact with her lawyer, a former lover named Edouard Clunet, who was pitifully naive about military trials. She passed on the message to the French.

The sight of her beauty caused Menelaus to drop his sword. If you do too, please consider becoming a supporter.

Great spies are anonymous— as any fule kno. Scandalous film projects included Pretty Baby at 12 where she plays a child prostitute and The Blue Lagoon at 14 where she walks around an island naked with her hair strategically placed to cover her nipples. When she moved to Paris, the British and French secret services were watching her. He escaped through a lack of evidence — a lack of which failed to protect the woman he interrogated at great length and prosecuted in a secret court martial. When news of this, however, as well as other discretions and plots got to her husband, he unceremoniously had her head cut off. Two of the longest and bloodiest battles of the war—Verdun and the Somme—pitted the French against the Germans for months at a time. Mata Hari was not bound and she was not blindfolded.

The passengers were stopped en route and Mata Hari found herself once again questioned at a British port. Ladoux instructed Mata Hari to go back to The Hague via Spain and wait there for instructions. War was brewing, it always is, and this was the big one, The Great War, 1914-18.

Her liberated sexuality deemed a cover for her career as a spy and worse—a threat to the moral substance of the honorable French people. Her dream collapsed when she attempted to establish herself permanently as a dancer on the stage, for example, as Salome in the opera by Richard Strauss. But MacLeod was the one to leave. And some eyewitnesses even claim that she dropped her fur coat at the last moment, revealing her nakedness beneath. It is also not known if her husband Menelaus truly showed her off naked at a party to impress his guests or if this incident was a Hollywood fabrication. But who was she really? The public and the critics were enthusiastic. Original postcards or photo prints are difficult to find and usually only available for ridiculously high prices at online auctions.

I grew up in the care of temple priests, where they consecrated me to Shiva. In return the theatre held back all her precious furs and jewelry. Mata Hari was surely dead. He even accused the prosecutor of accepting a case he knew was false.

There was a passionate curiosity in the accused: The first intimation she received that her plea had been denied was when she was led at daybreak from her cell in the Saint-Lazare prison to a waiting automobile and then rushed to the barracks where the firing squad awaited her. His great-grandmother had gone to school with Mata Hari, and so he grew up with stories about her. She handed them over to the custody of her lawyer. Consent was given immediately by Captain Bouchardon, and pen, ink, paper, and envelopes were given to her. Even being shot by a firing squad in that old fashioned way sounds romantic to me.

We then see Sylvia topless once more as a guy wakes her up after the party. Unfortunately in 1914 Mata Hari had to cancel her new six-month contract with the Metropol-Theatre in Berlin due to the begin of World War I in July. Mata Hari's postcards with portraits from a few photo-sessions, mostly photographed by Lucien Walery and Paul Boyer, are rare collector's items. It would be this access to upper echelons of politicians, high-ranking soldiers and wealthy industrialists that later led French and British authorities to think Mata Hari was a spy.
