I've always been intrigued by the silent film actress Nazimova, so when I stumbled upon the DVD of the silent film "Salomé," I had to check it out, if not for Nazimova, then the beautiful costumes and set. I found some stills on-line, and also tried to take some film stills via camera.

Here are my "screen shots". They're extremely blurry, sorry!

There's a clip of Salomé's dance for the King, but I'm not allowed to embed, so here's the link!


  1. Rudolph Valentino's wife Natacha Rambova designed the sets and costumes. Im not a Nazimova fan but can admit those are some beautiful designs!

  2. These are so great. I've never heard of her before to be honest, but I may have to learn more now!

  3. ooh, i'd like to see this, looks sumptuous
