Re-Release Poster from The Delicious Little Devil

This is a re-release poster from the film, “The Delicious Little Devil.” This film was originally released in 1919. Once Valentino’s stardom took off, the studios re-released some of Valentino’s early films. They edited the films so that Valentino’s parts were repeated in the film, to make it appear he had larger parts in the film. Once re-released they produced posters, lobby cards, and marketing material that featured Valentino, even giving him billing in the film that he originally might have had a 5-10 minute part. Even though this poster is a re-release it is from the early 20’s and still very valuable and of course sought after by collector’s.
