Made in 1923, Salomé loosely follows the biblical story of King Herod and his desire for his young stepdaughter. It is Salomé’s desire for Jokanaan (John the Baptist) that causes her to dance before Herod….

Salomé is a visual feast. The stunning, art nouveau costumes and sets were designed by Natacha Rambova, and were inspired by the lavish illustrations of Aubrey Beardsley that accompanied the first edition of Wilde’s text. Along with Nazimova, they are, in many ways the stars of the film.
