    Description

    A Sainted Devil (Paramount, 1924). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style A.
    The original "Latin Lover" Rudolph Valentino is one of the silent era's most magnetic stars, whose devilish good looks and mysterious eyes still captivate audiences even after eight decades. Valentino's popularity reached its zenith in the mid 1920s, and when the 31-year-old actor unexpectedly died in the summer of 1926, it set off a wave of hysteria among his many women admirers. Nearly 80,000 people, mostly women, crowded into Campbell's Funeral Parlor in New York to catch a glimpse of his body. This film, based on a book by Rex Beach called "Rope's End" and made at the height of Valentino's popularity, is believed lost. Set in South America, Valentino plays Don Alonzo Castro, a wealthy young set to be wed, whose fiance' is kidnapped when his house is robbed on the night of his wedding. This is a wonderful and rare stone litho one sheet which, prior to professional restoration, had some chipping and wear to the border, and a piece of the image chipped from the vertical foldline from the bottom border up to the first horizontal fold next to the boot with spur. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
