Directed by Charles Bryant | 1923

With With Alla Nazimova, Nigel De Brulier, Mitchell Lewis

The passion project of Russian-born actress and producer Alla Nazimova, this outrageously stylized adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s notorious play—based on the biblical story of the teenage princess who lusts after the severed head of John the Baptist—is a delirious, decadent avant-garde spectacle. Its status as a queer classic rests both on its Art Nouveau-meets-camp style and on the legend that the bisexual Nazimova cast the film entirely with gay actors.
