Salome

Salome is a 1953 American Drama Biblical film directed by William Dieterle and produced by Buddy Adler from a screenplay by Harry Kleiner and Jesse Lasky Jr. The music score was by George Duning, the dance music by Daniele Amfitheatrof and the cinematography by Charles Lang. Rita Hayworth's costumes were designed by Jean Louis. Hayworth's dances for this film were choreographed by Valerie Bettis. This film was the last produced by Hayworth's production company, the Beckworth Corporation.

Plot

Although based on the New Testament story, the film does not follow the Biblical text and is highly fictionalized, critically passing the blame of John the Baptist's death wholly upon her mother.
