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?
Hello, As a Rudolph Valentino fan, I was so excited to learn that this film was still in existence and was not lost like so many of his early "pre-fame" films. However, it was not available online (I didn't see it on youtube etc.), and after months of searching, I've only been able to find it sold at TCM, Valentino: Rediscovering an Icon of Silent Film, and now that has disappeared from the website. If you have any information on where I can get this film, or preferably where I can get the set, Valentino: Rediscovering an Icon of Silent Film, I'd really love to own some of the other films in that set as well, is it still available? I'd appreciate any information you have about this set ~Natalie
