Photos of Rudolph Valentino from Cobra

These are five photos from the film, "Cobra." For any Valentino fan who has not seen this film, I would highly recommend it. It depicts Valentino as an Italian womanizer who comes to America. Nita Naldi is fantastic in this film as well.

The Eagle Rudolph Valentino Movie Program

This is a movie program for the film, "The Eagle." The program is from the Capital Theatre, it states, "Rudolph Valentino in his latest and best picture." There are some great photo on the inside and back from the film. This appears to be a custom program produced by the theatre which makes it more valuable because less were produced. These programs / movie hearlds are great collectibles, they serve as a mini poster and lobby card all in one for a fraction of the price.

Rudolph Valentino Vintage Sheik Bust

Attention Valentino experts, we have a fan/collector that needs our help. Recently, I was contacted by someone who owns this fantastic Valentino Bust. It originally belonged to their Mother, they are looking for any information about this item. It measures 9" tall and about 5" wide. It used to have a small gold plaque on the bottom that read: 10-25-1926. My guess is that it is a one of a kind plaster piece that someone created; however, I am not certain of this. If anyone has seen this, has any information, or also owns one of these please post your comments or send me photos of the one you own. The owner would be grateful for any information you may have.

1920's Silent Star Paper Fan

This is promotional paper fan from the Colonial Theatre from Massachusetts. The fan features various silents stars, but features Valentino right in the center of the fan. Even though these fans were most likely massed produced by the theatre, I have never come across one until now. This is another example of a great random Valention collectible.

Candid Photos of Rudolph Valentino

These are five candid photos of Valentino. Many photos, including some of these are staged or posed photos. I really enjoy the unstaged, candid photos, they seem to be harder to come by.
