Sarah Bernhardt - Queen Elizabeth I called someone Sarah Bernhardt over the weekend and no one knew what I was talking about. Calling someone a Sarah Bernhardt means they are overly dramatic as seen in this clip. Although she died in 1923 her fame for being a drama queen was well known into the 1970s.

I know exactly what you mean. I think everyone, or rather, every family has a Sarah Bernhardt, or in my family's case, even a Sam Bernhardt. And yes....nobody who was born after the 50's seems to know what it means!!

I recall reading her bio in the early 70s. Perhaps the book was a best seller back then since there was a nostalgia craze for the old days entertainment.

Sarah Bernhardt was unconventional in a society that was still heavily influenced by Victorian prudery. She remained that way for the rest of her life. Because of that, her daughter (Lady Malcolm??) disowned her and remained a proper English lady of high social standing. Thus, Bernhardt paid a heavy price for her nonconforming lifestyle.

There really is no one today that you can substitute the name for. She sure was one of a kind! Our parents use to call us that too!
