The Valentino collection( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 93 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
