1923 Rudolph Valentino Movie Weekly

This is a Movie Weekly Magazine from January of 1923. It depicts Valentino in a pair of workout trunks and shoes. The photo was taken from his book, "How you can keep fit." Since this was a weekly publication, Valentino was often featured on the cover. This magazine is made from a thin newspaper-like paper stock, so to find them in mint condition is difficult. They seem to be some of the more common magazines you can find from the 20's but are still very sought after.

  1. I thought the book was made from the contributions he made to the magazine ?

  2. Actually, Movie Weekly was a magazine from the early 20's. There were various silent stars featured on the cover such as: Charlie Chaplin, Fatty Arbuckle, Clara Bow, Mary Pickford, Wallace Reid, and Douglas Fairbanks. Valentino did edit some issues and also contributed to some of the issues, I guess it was like the EW of the day.
