Autographed Photo from The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse

This is a fantastic autographed photo depicting Valentino from the film, "The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse." I like the fact that he dated this photo as well, "1921." He signed this photo "R. Valentino," he often signed either R. Valentino or Rudolph Valentino. These were the most common variations. I have noticed in many of the signed letters out there, especially to people he was acquainted with he signed R. Valentino. Anyway, this is a fantastic photo and would be very valuable, especially to collector's and fans such as all of us.

  1. Stunning. Did you watch a good fireworks show tonight?

  2. I live in a area where fireworks are sold all over the place and it is legal to set them off 24-7, so all I have to do is walk outside.

  3. I keep thinking about this photo. Do you know anything about it? I wonder who "Jimmy" is, and if it could possibly be Jimmy Starr, the columnist and screenwriter who was an office boy at Metro during the filming of Four Horsemen and who became friends with June and Rudy? I know I'm always speculating, but it is possible...haha. Mr Starr wrote a great book called "Barefoot On Barbed Wire" that tells all about his 40+ years in Hollywood, including during the silent era. Great read.

  4. It could be, I honestly have no idea. I saved the photo a long time ago, and do not remember where I found it. If it was Jimmy Star, I am sure it would increase the value even more!
