Salomè (1910, directed by Ugo Falena) at Europa Film Treasures. "...In honour of her father-in-law Herod, the young Salome dances the dance of the seven veils. Charmed, he offers her the reward of her choice. Salome demands the head of John the Baptist, who has just rejected her. This will be delivered to her on a tray. This silent film is adapted from Oscar Wilde’s play, itself inspired by the biblical event."
