This is a wonderful Liberty Magazine from 1926 that depicts a couple looking at a Rudolfo Hollidino, AKA Rudolph Valentino poster. I am unsure why the fake name; however, I think that makes it more funny. The man is saying "Aw, he's full of garlic." Which was a common male reaction to Valentino in the 20's. I find this to be a great comical Valentino item.

This is a fantastic three-sheet movie poster from the film, "The Eagle." A three-sheet poster is three separate posters used to create one giant poster. This poster is obviously in terrible shape; however, I am sure would still be worth thousands. I find the two images of Valentino one as the Russian Soldier and one as The Black Eagle to be fantastic. A rare and wonderful poster! I found this image on emovieposter.com

This is a wonderful Lobby Card from the 1925 film, "Cobra." This is a great scene from the film where Valentino leaves the restaurant through the backdoor only to see Rosa's Papa hiding to confront him; however, Rosa's Papa cover is blown by a couple of children. This is a rare and wonderfully colorful card, this would be a great addition to any collection, especially mine.
These are five photos from the 1922 film, "Blood and Sand." This is truly one of Valentino's best films. Parts of the film was supposed to filmed in Spain; however, it was filmed on the back lot of the old Paramount Studios. Regardless of where it was filmed a superb performance by Valentino, Lila Lee and Nita Naldi. These are all great photos, one of my favorites is the one where he has a cigarette in his hand. I just bought it in Hollywood.

This is a newspaper ad for the 1922 film, "The Young Rajah." This ad depicts unique artwork for the film. I find it fascinating to see the price list for the film at the bottom of the ad. Adults 35 cents, Children 15 cents, Adult Matinee 25 cents, Children 10 cents. These are great collectibles and can be found for a reasonable price.
This is a fantastic magazine called Film Journalen, a Norwegian publication. This issue depicts Valentino on the cover, from the film, "The Son of the Sheik." These are great over-sized magazines featuring many great Valentino covers. These seem to be fairly difficult to find.
