Photos with Valentino Movie Advertisements

The first item is a photo from London, dated 1924. The photo depicts a traffic police officer directing traffic, in the background there is a billboard for the film, "A Sainted Devil." Imagine what that billboard would be worth today. I would love to own one, but, where would you display it, on the side of your house? The second item, a postcard, depicts Denbigh in Wales with a movie theatre in the background with a large advertisement for the film, Blood and Sand. I find both of these items unique, they are snapshots in time that show Valentino's movies at the theater.

    If you do a search on GettyImages.com for "time square 1921" and enlarge the last photo, you will see a theater marquee, on the right and in the distance, that reads "Four Horseman of the Apocalypse". I agree with you: interesting to see evidence of RV's movies in vintage everyday life.
