Rudolph Valentino was one of the most famous stars of the 1920s. It therefore shocked the world when Valentino died of a freak illness at only 31 years old, just two weeks before the release of what would become his final film, The Son of the Sheik. The movie was a sequel to his 1921 hit film, The Sheik.
This French re-release B1 poster (~28×40″) is likely from the 1950s and features a wonderful portrait of the perennial star in his final role.
