Description by OLDIES.com:
Valentino, who placed a trade advertisement describing his role as "a new style heavy," plays Count Roberto di Fraccini. In fact, Valentino's striking appearance and the strength of his performance turns on its head this society melodrama otherwise typical of the period by making the villain by far its most interesting character. The Count is a fortune hunter having an affair with Ethel Spencer McMillan (Kathleen Kirkham), wife of wealthy older businessman Fiske McMillan (Edward Jobson). After the illicit couple unsuccessfully plots to blackmail McMillan for a large sum of money, the Count tells his lover's daughter, Mary (Vera Sisson), that in return for her hand in marriage (and her dowry), he will save her father from a life in prison.
An excerpt from Eyes Of Youth (1919) gives additional insight into Valentino's talent. This film features Valentino as Clarence Morgan, "a cabaret parasite" and professional co-respondent in the part which made an impression of June Mathis, principal screenwriter for The Four Horseman of the Apocalypse. Mathis saw to it that Valentino was cast for that film in the part of Julio, his breakthrough performance.
Also included on this DVD is the original Pathe newsreel showing Valentino's body lying in state at Campbell's funeral parlor in New York City, which documents the estimated 150,000 people who tried to crowd the mortuary to view the body. Rudolph Valentino's untimely death at age 31 had made him immortal.
