1926 Motion Picture Director Son of the Sheik Magazine

This is a copy of The Motion Picture Director magazine from July of 1926. The cover depicts a fantastic depiction of Valentino and Vilma Banky from the film, "The Son of the Sheik." This is an excellent example of a 20's magazine, pre-August 1926. I have never come across this magazine, the unique cover would lead me to believe it would be a bit more valuable than most magazines from the period.


  1. Gorgeous artwork on the cover. Reminds me of the Art Nouveau posters of a decade earlier.

  2. Ana, good call and great description. I need you around when I am posting this things!

  3. You are so nice to me. I could be wrong about the occasion of the trophy photo on your Liebster award post, but I am positive that is Marion Davies and not some random chica. You see, I actually watch silent films. Haha.
