Valda Valkyrien in a Scene Still | Photograph | Wisconsin Historical Society
Valda Valkyrien wears a flowing white robe, probably in the role of Ashubetis on the Jacksonville, Florida, set of the 1917 Thanhouser production <i>The Image Maker</i>.  The original caption: "This is where those nasty Egyptian soldiers have captured Valkyrien and are leading her off to the crocodile pit. Please note death agony in her face, and the beautiful classic silhouette of her garments. Also, she is not going to dine on the crocodiles but they on her. She is fond of lobsters as a beast of prey to be fondly devoured but she can live without the saurians."
