The romance is of course the important part, which the film masters. Valentino and Ayres (once she gets over the whole "getting kidnapped" deal) share a heart-melting, dramatic romance in lavishly decorated Arabian ... read more

A significant milestone in movie history and therefore should be watched as such. It's a reasonably well produced romantic action film, which carries you along (if you let it) to the corny and contrived ending. Remember also Valentino at this time in his life, was newly and madly in love with the love of his life, Natasha and he is just radiant throughout this whole film. It's been said that he a... read more

Description: Women fainted in the aisles when The Sheik was released in 1921. The titled Lady Diana Mayo (Agnes Ayres) is carried into the desert by a n Arab chieftain, Ahmed Ben Hassan (Valentino), who takes one look at her and wants her, right then and there.

His charismatic presence electrified audiences; his Sheik symbolized the forbidden allure of the exotic and forever secured Valentino's place in screen legend. From the lavis ... (more)

"27.5. Sheikki on aikamoista soutamista ja paahtamista. Koko juttu keskittyy lähinnä Valentinon myyttisen karisman ympärille."

Remember also Valentino at this time in his life, was newly and madly in love with the love of his life, Natasha and he is just radiant throughout this whole film. It's been said that he along with the rest of the cast and crew had the time of their lives romping through the desert making this film. It truly shows. There is nothing better than to see this gifted and talented man act while he is probably at his most happiest in life. I assure all that I thoroughly enjoyed The Sheik and thus recommend it.” read more
