The Sheik (1921)

the shief bluray

While I am a great lover of old movies I’ve only recently begun dipping my toe into the silent era. I gotta admit I still struggle to watch some of those films. They often contain some great visuals, but without audible dialogue, and often mismatched music, my mind tends to wander. But the more I watch the more I’m able to follow along.

The Shiek stars Rudolph Valentino who was a huge star at the time. It is a bit outdated by today’s standards but is still a pretty entertaining watch. My review is over at Cinema Sentries.
