Photos from the film, The Eagle
These are five photos from the film, "The Eagle." In my opinion one of Valentino's best films. The film had great settings and fantastic costumes. This film and The Son of the Sheik had a big budget feel to them, as if they were making Valentino movies for the next level in Hollywood, which at the time were talkies. Many people feel Valentino would have never made it in the talkies, I totally disagree, I know, I am a Valentino fan, besides that fact, I feel his stardom would have made him very successful through the 30's and 40's. Others feel the mystique would have been lost when the fans heard his Italian accented voice, which I understand; but, I feel that would have added to his appeal. This of course is one of the big Valentino debates, I feel like Chaplin his appeal and stardom would have carried his career.
