Description

    A Sainted Devil (Paramount, 1924). Window Card (14" X 22").
    The original "Latin Lover" Rudolph Valentino was 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 female admirers. Nearly 80,000 people, mostly women, crowded into Campbell's Funeral Parlor in New York to catch a glimpse of his body. Minimal restoration has been performed to address horizontal creasing, corner bends, and bottom edge wear. These signs of handling are still visible, as is a union stamp in the top imprint area. A rare and wonderful stone litho likeness of one of Hollywood's greatest heartthrobs! Fine+.
