Allah Nazimova stars in the Oscar Wilde scripted story of Salome, a silent film classic that shows the infamous and salacious dance done in exchange for the head of John the Baptist. Valentino's wife, Natacha Rambova (the former Miss Winifred Shaughnessy of Salt Lake City, Utah) robs Aubrey Beardsley blind, and brings his drawings to wonderful life in dramatic black and white. Her costumes for this work are nothing short of magical, and the pearl wig haunts one's dreams.
