Rare French Sheet Music from Monsieur Beaucaire

This is a fantastic, rare, over-sized piece of sheet music from the 1924 film, Monsieur Beaucaire.   The sheet music is from France.  I had never seen this variation until now.  Another great item uncovered, 90 years after the film was released!  As I have stated in the past, sheet music is one of my favorite collectibles, next to books.  They are vintage, fairly reasonably priced, and easy to frame and display.  This particular piece is one of those rare variations that is not often seen!

1926 Magazine from Belgium

This is another wonderful example of a vintage overseas magazine depicting Valentino on the cover.  The magazine is dated October 1926.  After Valentino's death in August of 1926, he graced the cover of every magazine and newspaper for months after.  This particular magazine depicts an artist's rendition of Valentino from the 1921 film, The Sheik.  I really enjoy these unique covers from outside of The United States.
