Re-Release Son of the Sheik Movie Poster

This is a great re-release poster from the film, "The Son of the Sheik." This poster is from Argentina and most likely dates from 30's or 40's. Many posters outside of the U.S. had different variations of artwork from the U.S. versions. This is a great example of just that. Notice on this poster is a image of Valentino in a suit, which is obviously not from the film. It was a way to showcase Valentino aside from the film, bring in Valentino fans to see this film, also, to bring in Valentino fans who were not familiar with his work. Overall, this is a unique poster that would be reasonably priced in comparison to an original poster from 1926.
