Free Night at the Movies: Salome

“Salomé" (1923) was produced and financed by the Russian-born silent-movie star Alla Nazimova as a vehicle for herself. It's inspired by Oscar Wilde's scandalous play and fashioned after Aubrey Beardsley's Asian-inspired drawings done for the first edition of the play. It's written and costumed by Natacha Rambova, the heiress who married Valentino two months after the film was released. Director Charles Bryant (A Doll's House and Stronger Than Death), the husband of the gamine Nazimova, keeps it kitschy, vulgar, gushing over with the Hollywood decadence of the 1920s and it's ornately stylized as avant-garde melodrama. There's much to recommend this early art film including the costumes, sets, lighting and camerawork. Salomé remains a cult favorite.” — Dennis Schwartz, Ozus World Movie Reviews. 72 minutes. Unrated.

Directed by Charles Bryant. Starring Alla Nazimova.

    As usual, I'm offering my vehicle to anyone who wants to carpool. I went to see "Our Dancing Daughters" this past Tuesday and I was completely blown away by the intensity and "real-ness" of the movie. The discussion afterward was fun as well. If you were ever curious about silent films, this might be a good time to get your pinky toe into the water.
