These are five hard to find photos from the 1922 film, "Blood and Sand." Blood and Sand was a great movie with a great script. I found it to be very well acted and well filmed, even though the studio's original plan was to film part of the film in Spain, which did not happen. There are hundreds of thousands of stills from most of Valentino's more popular films, most of these stills are not too common. Four of the five photos are from Frau Wulf's website.

This is a great, random item. The front of this mini booklet reads, "Galeria de las Estrellas del Cine," which translates to Gallery of the Stars of the Cinema. This was created from the Amatller Chocolate Company. There are fold out cards depicting Valentino from The Sheik, Blood and Sand, The Young Rajah, and Moran of the Lady Letty. I love finding items like this. I had no ideas things like this existed. It still amazes me just how many items are out there!
