Storyline

The camp classic drama that catapulted De Carlo into stardom. During the Austrian-Prussian war, Anna Marie (De Carlo) is a dancer who is forced to flee her country after she is accused of being a spy. She ends up in a lawless western town in Arizona, where she uses her charms and dancing skills to transform herself into "Salome" during her dance routines. She makes such an impact on the town, eventually taming it, that they re-name the town "Salome, Where She Danced." Later on, she moves to San Francisco, where she meets a wealthy Russian man, seduces him, and has him build her her own opera house to perform in. Anna Marie spends her life manipulating one man after another to get what she wants, and they fall fall for her. Written by Anonymous

everything went wrong in this film
11 December 2011 | by tmwestSee all my reviews

Making a film is an expensive enterprise, and specially making a color film in 1945 was quite a risky business with hundreds of people and a big budget involved. It is hard to understand how a film like this could be made, but surprisingly it must have done OK at the box office because Yvonne De Carlo played almost the same role in Black Bart (1948). There is no reason for Jim Steed (Rod Cameron) to be in the film, he is just an observer and the real hero, Cleve Blunt ( David Bruce) has to go through so much non sense that it is laughable , to say the least. Poor Yvonne, she was a good and pretty actress, but to ask the audience to believe Cameron, Bruce, Walter Slezak and Albert Dekker are all astonished by her as she dances Blue Danube is to ask too much. If you want to see a camp movie it is better to see Ed Wood.
