Son of the Sheik Glass Slide

This is a glass slide from the film, "The Son of the Sheik," from 1926. The glass slide was the movies first version of a "movie trailer." It was a way to show the audience coming attractions. Most original Valentino glass slides ( there are replicas out there) are colorful and not too easy to find. Many older glass slides are cracked and broken, condition is everything with these. These normally start around $100.
