Swedish Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse Sheet Music

This is a rare piece of sheet music from 1923 from The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. The sheet music is from Stockholm Sweden and is titled, "Tango Valentino." This is one of the coolest pieces of sheet music I have come across. Similar to many of the overseas movie posters there are various versions of overseas sheet music with different art work and designs. This is a piece that is not seen too often and would be fairly valuable, this is the first time I have come across this piece.

Rare Version of The Conquering Power Movie Poster

This is a rare version of a movie poster from the film, "The Conquering Power." Items from this film are fairly difficult to find. This was the third of five films Valentino made in 1921. This film was released before The Sheik. Valentino was showcased in The Four Horsemen; but, really did not hit stardom until The Sheik. With all of this in mind this film was not overly marketed. This is a rare, hard to find poster that would look nice hanging in my house somewhere.

Candid Photos of Valentino

Here are five great candid photos of Valentino that you do not see too often. It is amazing just how many photos are out there that I have never seen. Valentino had to be one of the most photographed movie stars of his time.

The Son of the Sheik Press Kit

This is a press kit booklet sent out from the poster production company to various movie theaters. These are fairly difficult to find. This particular one is from the re-release of SOS. It is amazing to see some of the prices, for example: One Sheet for 10 cents, a three sheet for 30 cents, or how about 100 window cards for $6!! If I only had a DeLorean!
