My Friends and Visitors, I present a montage of stills from Four Horsemen of the Apocalyspe, 1921, starring Rudolph Valentino.

The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse is a silent movie produced by Metro Pictures Corporation, adapted by June Mathis, directed by Rex Ingram and starring Rudolph Valentino, Pomeroy Cannon, Josef Swickard, Wallace Beery, and Alice Terry. It was based on the novel The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse by Vicente Blasco Ibáñez.
The film had a huge cultural impact, becoming the top grossing film of 1921 beating out Charlie Chaplin's The Kid, and going on to become the sixth best grossing silent film of all time. The film turned then little known actor Rudolph Valentino into a super star and associated him with the image of the 'Latin Lover'. The film also inspired a tango craze and such fashion fads as gaucho pants. The film was masterminded by June Mathis, who with its success became one of the most powerful women in Hollywood at the time.

Music is the "Tango Rio Rita," The Floridians, 1927.

Genia, I am disappointed too the way Google is evolving and forcing users to link all accounts, infringing our privacy, which apparently is less of a concern to them than fictitious copyright "claims" on 80-100 year old songs :-(

Thank you Patrick,
I am happy you enjoyed this Rio Rita Tango, I was delighted when I found it.
I decided to put the remaining videos on DM, I don't like the turn YT is taking since Google took over.
Too many changes and still more to come.....They are trying to make YT Facebook.

Genia, I am overwhelmed by your massive uploads I've just found. This is a lovely start of the series, with one of those favorite themes of mine, in a wonderful, delicate orchestration. Thank you for sharing!
