The Sheik Posters

These are different variations of posters from the film, "The Sheik. Again, most of these are rare and very valuable. Notice the three bottom posters do not feature Valentino. This film was made in 1921, after he did The Four Horseman. Even though The Four Horseman was a huge financial success, many of the studio executives did not credit the relatively unknown Valentino with the film's success. This is evident with number of posters that did not feature, the star of the film, Valentino! Little did they know what was about to happen!
