Valentino Re-Issues

Rudolph Valentino went on strike against Paramount for all of 1923 and a good part of 1924. Other studios which held films in which Valentino played a bit or supporting role lost no time and these earlier films were often re-edited and brought out again to appease the Valentino-starved movie goers.

No one was better at this than Universal.  Rudolph Valentino made five films at Universal

A Society Sensation  1918
All Night  1918
Delicious Little Devil 1919
Big Little Person  1919
Once To Every Woman  1920

Here is a half sheet issued in early 1924 for 'All Night', in which Valentino was now given star billing over the original star; Carmel Myers.
