This is a rare re-release movie poster from the film Isle of Love. The original title was An Adventuress from 1920. Once Valentino gained notoriety and stardom the studios saw an opportunity to re-release some of Valentino's early films where he had bit parts. Many of these films were marketed with Valentino as the star of the film. In this case the film took Valentino's parts and spliced them together, in the end repeating his scenes. It was a way for studio's to get out little seen footage of Valentino for adoring fans. Posters such as these are not too common, even though it is considered a re-release poster, posters such as these feature Valentino, instead of just his name at the bottom. These are still quite rare and valuable.
