Upon seeing the 1923 film Salome with Alla Nazimova, P. Emerson Williams immediately set to composing the music on this release. The story of Salome is a familiar one in Western culture, the climax of which with her lascivious dance and the severed head of John the Baptist has fired the imagination of artists, writers and composers for hundreds of years. The mythical Salome can be seen as both a product of and a window into the minds of those who told it.
