The Son of the Sheik

"OK"

The Son of the Sheik Review


Valentino's final film, at the age of 31, finished right before he died of a perforated ulcer. Valentino takes two roles in this sequel, again as the desert prince and his father as well (the original Sheik). Unfortunately, like sequels today, The Son of the Sheik is clearly a financial endeavor over a creative one. The story adds nothing over the original (the emphasis being on goofy humor) and the spectacle isn't even as grand, with much of the movie shot indoors instead of on the glorious sands of the desert.

Off with their heads!
