Dir. Alexandre Volkoff. 1928, 126 mins. With Marcella Albani, D. Dmitriev, Brigitte Helm. Germany/France. This exquisite fantasy of an escape into the “Orient” features over-the-top ornamental sets by Ivan Lochakoff and sensuous costumes by Boris Bilinsky, a magnificent blend of Eastern and Western motifs. With its paradisical atmosphere and a sumptuously stencil-colored sequence, the film is a fairy-tale world of fancy filled with adventure, magic, mystery, and harem dancers.

Dir. Cecil B. DeMille. 1919, 97 mins. With Gloria Swanson, Thomas Meighan. In this film’s notorious dream sequence, Gloria Swanson dramatically enters a lions’ den decked out in a lavish all-white robe and a headdress made of pearls, beads, and peacock feathers. The showstopping outfit, designed by Mitchell Leisen, was so heavy that Swanson required two crew members to help her move. Inga Fraser is associate curator of Fashion in Film at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, University of the Arts London.
Free with Museum admission.
