Salome (1923) – Silent Film Adaptation


Hey Vicky and Eddie Lovers! I just found a copy of Charles Bryant’s 1923 silent film adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s Salome!

This is the film that, according to rumours Vito Russo heard, was performed by an entirely homosexual cast. I don’t know if that is true; however, it is still a beautiful adaptation that uses dance to convey the ideas developed by both Oscar Wilde’s words and Aubrey Beardsley’s iconic drawings for the 1894 Bodley Head book.
