Inspired by THE SHEIK

  • The Sheik is the official mascot of Hollywood High School, named after the movie.
  • The Son of the Sheik was released 5 September 1926, two weeks after Valentino's death on 23 August 1926 from peritonitis, a complication following a perforated ulcer.
  • Both films were instant hits & grossed $1M within the first year of release.  

See you at the Oscars!
