Monsieur Beaucaire (1924) Rudolph Valentino, Doris Kenyon & Ian Maclaren Quarrel:
This is a vintage 8x10 in. U.S. single-weight glossy copy photograph (not a vintage original photo printed at the time it was taken) from thelavishly-mounted silent film costume drama/romance,MONSIEUR BEAUCAIRE, released in 1924 by Paramount Pictures and directed by Sidney Olcott. The film stars Rudolph Valentino as the Duke de Chartres/ Monsieur Beaucaire.
The image features an exterior nighttime shot in a garden setting as the handsome Duke de Chartres (Rudolph Valentino) reacts in anger to what was said to him by the Duke of Winterset (Ian Maclaren) while the beautiful lady Mary (Doris Kenyon) is also angered by the older man's words. The exquisite period French costumes that were created by Paramount's costume department are seen to full advantage in this shot. Printed on single-weight stock with a glossy finish, most likely in the 1950's,this vintage copy photograph is in very fine condition with two tiny pinpoint dots in the upper background area between the heads of Maclaren and Valentino. There are no pinholes, tears, stains, or other flaws and the image quality is very sharp with fine detail and nice contrast.
