I recently watched A Society Sensation (1918) for the first time. I was wanting to see Valentino in this pre-fame role, and it was very interesting. The film had been heavily edited and re-released when Rudolph Valentino became popular, so the storyline was missing quite a bit, however, it was still very enjoyable. Valentino did extremely well with comedy (especially in his later films like The Eagle from 1925) and this movie gave him some opportunities to show that skill. His scene with Zasu Pitts is hilarious, the two of them acted very well together. It was interesting to see a film where he is not doing the rescuing; whenever they get into trouble, Carmel Myers ends up saving the day each time! I thought the movie was fun and I'm glad I got to see it. Has anyone else ever seen A Society Sensation (1918)? If so, what did you think about it?
