The 1926 film, Son of the Sheik, is based on a bestselling novel; it was the sequel to an even more popular film and book. Son of the Sheik was also the last film to star Rudolph Valentino - one of the great stars of the silent era. Join us for a special showing of this classic film. Donna Hill, author of Rudolph Valentino: The Silent Idol, will introduce. A booksigning will follow with Hill and exhibit organizer Thomas Gladysz, author of the "Louise Brooks" edition of The Diary of a Lost Girl.
