Judith of Bethulia Script
Imagine the outrageous Mae West in a Cecil B. DeMille biblical epic. Judith, a beautiful, wealthy young widow, is reviled by her own people as a gold digging adventuress. When her ancient city of Bethulia is facing brutal annihilation, Judith, wearing her most glittering finery, slips into the enemy camp, seduces and ultimately decapitates the ruthless General Holofernes. This wild homage to the Hollywood movie epic is the latest trip to the cinematic past by the author of Vampire Lesbians of Sodom and The Divine Sister.
