This chapter traces the development of the Salome Craze. Salome became a prominent feature in opera and vaudeville from the early 1900s. In August 1908 there were four Salomes performing in New York alone; by October there were twenty-four. Salome dances presaged burlesque, paving the way for the great striptease queens of the 1930s and 1940s. Salome was later seen in the two new major art forms of the twentieth century: film and modern dance.
