The Valentino collection( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As one of the most iconic personalities of the silent film era, Rudolph Valentino achieved an unprecedented level of fame, due in part to his exotic good looks and a magnetic personality that leapt from the screen. His undeniable cultural resonance, coupled with his untimely death in August of 1926, has made him a recognizable and still-relevant figure throughout the world. The Valentino collection is the definitive video compilation featuring digital reconstructions of four previously unavailable Valentino films. A new digital reconstruction of two lost films: The young Rajah (1922) and Stolen moments (1920), featuring new musical scores by Jon Mirsalis, A society sensation (1918), featuring Bob Mitchell at the pipe organ, and Moran of the Lady Letty (1922), featuring a restoration of the films original intertitle text and tinting and a new score by Robert Israel. Directed by Phil Rosen, James Vincent, George Melford and Paul Powell

Moran of the Lady Letty is based on the novel by Frank Norris. Moran casts Valentino as Ramon Laredo, a pampered aristocrat who is shanghaied in contemporary San Francisco by Captain Kitchell (Walter Long), the brutal commander of a smuggling schooner bound for Mexico. The Moran of the title is a beautiful young woman (top-billed Dorothy Dalton) who is as good a sailor as any man; the Lady Letty is her ship, which is taken over by Kitchell and his men. Ramon, naturally, has fallen for Moran (her name is even an anagram of his), and defends her honor in a brawling showdown with the lustful captain
