French movie poster, 1918. Salomé is a silent film produced by William Fox and starring actress Theda Bara. The film is now considered to be lost. Henri Langlois, a French film preservationist, said he had the opportunity to buy this film but dismissed it as Fox, Theda Bara, and American spectacle. He subsequently realized his lost chance and regretted prejudging films as worthy of preserving, deciding instead to preserve whatever film he was able to.
