Directed by George Melford

Print: Black/white
Runtime: 55 min.
Genre: Drama

Sheik Ahmed (Valentino) desperately desires fiesty British socialite Diana (Ayres), so he abducts her and carries her off to his luxurious desert tent-palace. The free-spirited Diana recoils from his passionate embraces and yearns to be released. Only after being kidnapped by desert bandits does Diana realize how much she has grown to love Ahmed, who comes to her rescue in the nick of time.

The Son Of The Sheik (1926)

Starring Rudolph Valentino, Vilma Bánky, George Fawcett, Montagu Love, Karl Dane
Directed by George Fitzmaurice

Print: Black/white
Runtime: 68 min.
Genre: Drama

In this visually intoxicating sequal to Valentino's career-defining film The Sheik, the screen's greatest lover portrays a cultured yet untamed young man who is lured into a theives' trap by a beautiful dancer, Yasmin (Vilma Banky). After escaping, he kidnaps the damsel and holds her capitve in this desert lair, gowning her in Arabian finery and threatening to unleash his violent passions upon her. Plot is almost inconsequential in The Son Of The Sheik. Its sultry beauty and torrid power lie instead in the exotic romance that saturates every frame, as sadomasochistic fantasies are played out against the lavish Orientalist sets designed by William Cameron Menzies (The Thief of Bagdad), lushly photographed by George Barnes (Sadie Thompson). The Son Of The Sheik proved to be Valentino's final film. He died suddenly on Auguest 23, 1926 at age 31, shortly after the film was released.
