The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (1921, dir. Rex Ingram)

The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse

“In her career as a screenwriter, depictions of alternative lifestyles became her trademark, and June Mathis was proud of this as well. She wrote a shot of two lesbians into a cafe scene for The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, and in a banquet scene at the French château, ‘I had the German officers coming down the stairs with women’s clothing on. To hundreds of people that meant no more than a masquerade party. To those who have lived and read, and who understand life, that scene stood out as one of the most terrific things in the picture.’” (via)
