Fall of the house of Usher.
Lot in Sodom.
Dream of a rarebit fiend presents a man who eats rarebit and then has nightmares in which inanimate objects come to life and his bed flies off with him. -- Salome is an adaptation of the Oscar Wilde play and stars the famous dancer Alla Nazimova. -- The fall of the house of Usher is a version of Edgar Allan Poe's tale. It stresses atmosphere by optical distortions, multiple exposures, and dramatic lighting. -- The bridge is Charles Vidor's experimental version of Ambrose Bierce's "An occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge". -- Lot in Sodom is an experimental telling of the Old Testament story in terms of homosexuality and the subconscious.
