An Original Vintage Linenbacked One-Sheet Movie Poster (1sh) (Learn More)

Blood and Sand, the 1922 Fred Niblo silent Spain bullfighting matador romantic love triangle melodrama ("Scenario by June Mathis"; "From the novel by Vicente Blasco Ibanez and the play by Tom Cushing."; about a young matador who marries his childhood sweetheart, but then, after he becomes a big success, he betrays his wife with a beautiful aristocrat, but his wife accepts it and stays with him, but when he starts to age and looses some of his skills, he is in a major bullfight, and he sees his lover with another man, and that distracts him, and he gets fatally gored, and he dies in his wife's arms, telling her he always loved her!) starring Rudolph Valentino (billed as "Rodolph Valentino", which was his actual name), Lila Lee, Nita Naldi, Rosa Rosanova, Leo White, and Rosita Marstini. We saw reference on the Internet to there being an alternate ending to this movie that was shot where it is a "happy ending", where he does not die, but we can't confirm that. Note that Valentino wanted this movie shot on location in Spain, but Paramount insisted on shooting it in Hollywood, to save money. Recently enacted animal cruelty laws meant that no bulls could be hurt while filming, so stock footage of bullfights had to be used. But fortunately, the film editor was Dorothy Arzner (later a very successful female director), and she interspersed stock footage with footage of Valentino so well that most viewers could not detect that this was done (this was a pretty new technique at the time). Valentino had had major success with "The Sheik" and "The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse" the year before, and this movie was also a giant success, and made him a superstar in Hollywood and throughout the world! Note that the movie was remade in 1941, with Tyrone Power Jr. and Rita Hayworth.
