During the Austrian-Prussian war, Anna Marie (De Carlo) is an exotic dancer  accused of being a spy. She escapes to the American West and ends up in a lawless little town in Arizona, where she uses her charms and dancing skills to transform herself into Salome. She makes such an impact on the town, eventually taming it, that they re-name the town Salome, Where She Danced. Then she moves to San Francisco to work her magic on a wealthy Russian, who builds Anna her very own opera house to perform in. Fun Technicolor camp classic with De Carlo in the role that propelled her to stardom.
