Salome (1923) loosely follows the biblical story of King Herod and his unbridled lust for his 14-year-old stepdaughter, Salome. Her arousal over and sexual baiting of the pious Jokanaan (a.k.a. John the Baptist) and subsequent rejection by him enrages the teenager. It is, of course, Salome's desire for Jokanaan that causes her to dance before Herod. She ultimately demands Jokanaan's severed head to be presented to her - her fee for an arousing performance. Lot in Sodom (1933) : We are shown the orgies of the sodomites, semi-nude young men, fair of countenance and strong of limb, as they carry on their bacchanales. Pleasure and pain, ecstasy and despair, are mingled in these faun-like evil faces that glide like apparitions in a mist before us... I have never seen light manipulated so eloquently as in these expressive lights and shadows which sometimes form men or fragments of a body, sometimes coagulate into flowers or break up their particles into water - and at all times make Lot In Sodom into a moving and arresting film." - Herman G. Weinberg, Close Up 1933.
