Mata Hari

Today we feature a photograph of the original Femme Fatale . . . Mata Hari. Mata Hari was a famed entertainer and exotic dancer of the early 1900's. She was an international celebrity, and was rumored to have had liaisons with many powerful men across Europe. In 1917 she was accused of being a German spy by the French. She was convicted, and was executed by firing squad on this day, October 15, in the year 1917. Rumor has it that she blew a kiss to the men of the firing squad prior to her execution.
