RUDOLPH VALENTINO - Photo of Universal Feature Film "The Big Little Person"

Many times its interesting to discover small details of Rudy's early film history.  Here is a vintage movie magazine ad that shows a heavily cropped photo saying that Rudolph Valentino as shown, was a heavy in a Universal film directed by Bob Leonard.

Robert Leonard was married to actress Mae Murray who was the star of the film.  I believe the photo to be from "The Big Little Person" 1919 Universal.   Of the five films Rudy made at Universal, in only one did he have a mustache, and that would be this film.  He was clean shaven in the other four Universal films "A Society Sensation", "Delicious Little Devil", "All Night" and "Once To Every Woman"
