Alla Nazimova DVD

Camille (1921) Alla Nazimova, Rudolph Valentino & introducing Patsy Ruth Miller

It is one of numerous screen adaptations of the book and play La Dame aux Camélias by Alexandre Dumas, fils. The original play opened in Paris in 1852.

Original Score, Brian Pinette

Salomé (1923) Alla Nazimova ~ RESTORED

Salomé (1923), a silent film directed by Charles Bryant and starring Alla Nazimova, is a film adaptation of the Oscar Wilde play of the same name. The play itself is a loose retelling of the biblical story of King Herod and his execution of John the Baptist (here, as in Wilde's play, called Jokaanan) at the request of his stepdaughter, Salomé, whom he lusts after.

Salomé is often called one of the first art films to be made in the U.S. The highly stylized costumes, exaggerated acting (even for the period), minimal sets, and absence of all but the most necessary props make for a screen image much more focused on atmosphere and on conveying a sense of the characters' individual heightened desires than on conventional plot development.

Cleopatra (1912) Helen Gardner

Cleopatra is a silent film created in 1912 by Helen Gardner and the Helen Gardner Picture Players. The film, in which Gardner stars in the title role, was based on a play written by Victorien Sardou.

In a series of elaborately staged tableaux, it depicts Cleopatra (Gardner) and her love affairs, first with handsome fisherman-slave Pharon, then with Marc Antony.

The film features lavish sets and costumes, and tinting in various hues. At just over an hour, it was considered fairly lengthy.

SHE (1925) Betty Blythe

British-German fantasy adventure film directed by Leander de Cordova and G.B. Samuelson and starring Betty Blythe, Carlyle Blackwell, Mary Odette. It was filmed in Berlin as a co-production, and based on H. Rider Haggard's novel of the same name. According to the opening credits, the intertitles were specially written for the film by Haggard himself (he died in 1925, the year the film was made).

The book has been a popular subject for filmmakers in the silent and sound eras, with at least five short film adaptations produced in 1908, 1911, 1916, 1917, and 1919 respectively.

The 1925 version was the first feature length adaptation, although it was trimmed from its original 98-minute running time down to 69 minutes for US release. It is the most faithful of the three feature-length adaptations to date and follows the action, characters and locations of the original novel closely.

Original Score, Brian Pinette
