Lair of the White Worm & Salome's Last Dance

Dir by Ken Russell, 1988. Amanda Donohoe provides nocturnal material for adolescent boys and feminists alike, with her suave poise, exuding all the charm of an aristocratic pantomime villain in leather suspenders. In looking for this clip, I noticed that Ken Russell had directed another film in 1988 called Salome's Last Dance, which is his unique take on the Oscar Wilde play. So quite by accident again, it develops a theme in earlier blogs. I must get a copy and watch it, but for now these clips (which make The Lair of the White Worm look "normal") will have to do.
