How to hide the title bar for an Activity in XML with existing custom theme

I want to hide the titlebar for some of my activities. The problem is that I applied a style to all my activities, therefore I can't simply set the theme to @android:style/Theme.NoTitleBar.

Using the NoTitleBar theme as a parent for my style would remove the title bar for to much activities.

Can I set a no title style item somewhere?

Answer

I now did the following.

I declared a style inheriting everything from my general style and then disabling the titleBar.

<style name="generalnotitle" parent="general">
    <item name="android:windowNoTitle">true</item>
</style>

Now I can set this style to every Activity in which I want to hide the title bar overwriting the application wide style and inheriting all the other style informations, therefor no duplication in the style code.
