Picture Show Annual

This is a hardback Picture Show Annual book from 1926. These came out at the end of the year as a year in review as many magazines do today. 1926 was the year Valentino died, but instead of depicting his current and last film, The Son of the Sheik, they chose a film from 1924, The Sainted Devil for the cover. I have read that many people did not see films with people who passed away, thus these films where not overly marketed; however, I am unsure why this film was chosen. Moderately difficult to find, these are not common, but not extremely rare, still sought after though.
