Go! Girl! Go! — Treinta y Dos

Brigid Bazlen as Salome gets King Herod’s juices flowing in the 1961 Biblical epic King of Kings, demanding in return that Herod deliver as a reward the head of John the Baptist on a silver platter. Seventeen at the time this picture was made, Bazlen signed an exclusive contract with MGM, but appeared in only two other movies for the studio — The Honeymoon Machine and How the West Was Won.

By way of comparison, here’s Rita Hayworth as Salome performing the Dance of the Seven Veils for Charles Laughton’s King Herod in the 1953 version of Salome.
