CGiii Comment

It's as camp as sequined covered tits.

The acting is abysmal - historically, it is rather important.

But...it is crap - no matter what film historians say.


Watch...

The(ir) Blurb...

Alla Nazimova and Charles Bryant’s adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s Salomé, and the combination is fitting, as the latter is an equally homoerotic riff on scripture. In reference, no doubt, to the film’s Aubrey Beardsley–inspired mise en scène and rumors of its exclusively gay casting, Kenneth Anger dubbed it “Nancy-Prancy-Pansy-Piffle and just too qu**r for words.”
