Trivia

Oscar Wilde wrote the original play in French in 1891. An English translation was made and was in rehearsal in 1894, but was banned by officials on the basis that it was illegal to depict Biblical characters on the stage. Its first live performance was in Paris, France in 1896 (Wilde was jailed from 1895 to 1897). It was not performed in England until 1931. See more »

very unusual but is it art?
1 June 2001 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Having read the reviews of this on the Silents Majority website and in Time Out film guide I was curious. It looked good from stills and the play is one of my favourites ... the film is extremely odd. Nazimova, who looks like Gloria Swanson only more over the top, is a seductive and teasing Salome, dancing the seven veils with style, driving Herod mad, taunting the Baptist (a gaunt stick of a man who is quite disturbing to look at). The guards are all extremely camp and OTT and the whole film has that feeling of the extremes of twenties decadence. One feels Wilde would have approved. Not a patch on the opera but a decent stab at a play which is full of excess. It just wouldn't work with sound. It has to be images, and this is full of them.
