Movie Ad for Beyond the Rocks

This is a great newspaper advertisement for the 1922 film, Beyond the Rocks, starring Gloria Swanson, and of course Valentino.  Many of these ads were found in newspapers and magazines.  As I have stated in previous posts, these are fantastic collectibles, they are reasonably priced and often depict unique artwork from the film.  This is another great example of one of those ads.

Mid Week Pictorial Featuring Valentino

This is a magazine/supplement called Mid Week Pictorial, "News of the World in Pictures."  This was published weekly by the New York Times.  Valentino graced the cover of this publication numerous times.  This is a fantastic partial profile pic of Valentino.  This is a unique magazine that would need to be added to any collection.
