    #111 - The Son of the Sheik (1926, George Fitzmaurice)

    This movie was good and very crafty and impressive, especially the editing (making The Sheik, played by Rudolph Valentino, and the Son of the Sheik, also played by Valentino, appear in the same scene seemlessly. Also kudos to the makeup department). I’m not so keen on tinting, but there was one sequence right at the end that I rewound a time or two because there’s a part where somebody drops a grenade and the scene goes from red to green (or vice versa) in time with the smoke from the bomb. It’s just, like, flawless.

    All that said, I found The Sheik more captivating.
