What a fabulous job Jeff Masino of Flicker Alley and his co-producer on this project, Tracy Terhune did for this beautiful 2 DVD set devoted to the silent hero and hearthrob Rudolph Valentino.

For the Valentino fans who have been waiting for this set, I am certain that I am preaching to the choir here, but let me tell you that you will not be at all disappointed when you put in either of the 2 DVDs into your player.

There are four films in the set, and as Emily Leider wisely notes in the booklet, this does cover important periods in Valentino's ascent on the road to stardom.

In chronological order then:

A Society Sensation predates Valentino's stardom, he was a contract player at Universal and not quite on the brink of stardom. He plays a young American which was quite the change for he was typically cast as a villain at this stage of his career.

Stolen Moments captures Valentino just before his meteoric rise to fame in The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (hello, Warners, this film NEEDS to be on DVD), he is a slick villain and it is clear, he is taking a great delight in the thankless role, so smooth and despicable he is!

Moran of the Lady Letty is a sleeper hit from 1921, filmed after Valentino made a splash as The Sheik and it is a real sleeper in the way of Valentino films. Valentino plays a young and weathy dandy of San Francisco society who ends up being shanghaied and becomes a man, and finds love with his unlikely sea captain, Moran of the Lady Letty. Valentino gives a very naturalistic performance and it's worth it to see him looking every inch an able seaman swabbing decks.

Of the films, the disappointment to some will be the restored portions of The Young Rajah.

This wonderful 2-disc set is crammed with a variety of exciting extra features besides rare and less-known films by Valentino, and for the effort to put it all together in this beautifully presented package this Flicker Alley DVD release already deserves a full 5-star rating. As one of Hollywood's greatest screen legends from the silent era, Rudolph Valentino is still attracting fans of all ages decades after his untimely death in 1926, which is a testament of the extraordinary on-screen magnetism that made him such a huge star in his short-lived career. The films on these two DVDs, however, are not the ones that made him one of Hollywood's first sex symbols and idol for many swooning women, but they do fill the gaps and show Valentino in transition from playing villain roles in short or less significant films, to being the star in a hero-type role for which he is best remembered these days. As such, there are none of the trademark intense and soulful looks in these earlier films for which he later became so beloved, nor are they of the same calibre as "The Sheik" or "The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse", but they are important steps in Valentino's career which would interest not only his fans but also the general silent film enthusiast. Two of the films are only about half an hour in length, and the picture quality is not the best, but with good piano or organ accompaniment and an interesting story, they are enjoyable to watch. "Stolen Moments" intrigued me the most, mainly because this was Valentino's last villain role, and wearing a moustache, he appears like a different person altogether.Read more ›

Once again Flicker Alley has come through with another top notch release to join GARDEN OF EDEN, JUDEX, and PHANTOM. VALENTINO: REDISCOVERING AN ICON OF SILENT CINEMA (to give the set it's full title) is a 2-DVD set that contains 4 of Rudy's lesser known films and a boatload of extras. This time around the extras are better than the films offered. This is primarily because 2 of the 4 films survive in shortened form (STOLEN MOMENTS, A SOCIETY SENSATION) while a third (THE YOUNG RAJAH) is actually a realization created from stills and surviviving 16mm footage. Only MORAN OF THE LADY LETTY (based on a book by Frank Norris) is presented more or less intact with proper tints and title cards which is good because this follow-up to THE SHEIK shows Paramount creating a more macho image for Valentino to counter criticisms about his "masculinity" and to show off his physique to good advantage. There are lines/title cards in the beginning referring to him as "a dancing master" and a "lilly of the valley".

The extras though are something else altogether. Bonus films, rare footage, landmarks, rememberances, and a 10 page booklet chock full of photos and information. The packaging is first rate and the quality of the material is as good as it can be which makes this set ideal for people just becoming acquainted with Valentino as well as the longtime afficionado. For those just becoming familiar with Rudy don't forget to check out the major Valentino releases such as THE SHEIK/SON OF THE SHEIK, BLOOD AND SAND, COBRA, and FOUR HORSEMEN OF THE APOCALYPSE (where is the Photoplay edition on DVD?). Hardcore fans will already have these titles in their collections along with everything else Valentino.
