De Carlo is a Viennese dancer during the Franco-Prussian war. She meets Cameron, an American reporter, and helps him fool one of Bismarck's top officers. This Mata Hari stunt forces De Carlo and her man to head off to America, ending up in a small Arizona town. The locals of Drinkman's

Wells are a group of assorted outlaws who are straightened out by DeCarlo. They're so entranced by her and her dancing that they rename their town "Salome." From there it's off to San Francisco for the tempting lady where she hooks up with the wealthy Russian, Slezak. He too becomes entranced by

her various skills and ends up building an opera house for her, a la CITIZEN KANE. De Carlo becomes the toast of San Francisco and, to no one's surprise, the film ends on a happy note. Without a doubt, this is a bad film complete with a rambling, largely unbelievable script and some awful

performances by the leads. (De Carlo was picked for this film after a nationwide search.) There's plenty of action and romance with good Technicolor scenery as well, but the film is poorly connected by the thinnest of plot threads. Like many films of this nature, SALOME, WHERE SHE DANCED is a

member of the so-bad-it's-good club, a film so undeniably awful one can't help but enjoy it. Over the years it has achieved some minor cult status. De Carlo worked her way around Hollywood before achieving some recognition as Lily of the 1960s television sitcom "The Munsters."
