#2 - THE SHEIK (1921) / THE SON OF THE SHEIK (1926) Rudolph Valentino, Agnes Ayres, Vilma Bánky

 

Landmark films bookending Valentino’s six years of stardom: one, a low-budget romance dominated by his eyes and smile (at the expense of acting) with comic moments; the other, featuring impressive horse stunt work and Valentino stretched in dual roles as father and son – the first movie sequel released posthumously.
