~Rudolph Valentino~
~Plot Synopsis~
There's something very calculated about this Rudolph Valentino vehicle. As he did in Four
Horsemen of the Apocalypse, the star plays an Argentine with a talent for the tango. The production
and costuming are elaborate, and the story was based on the Rex Beach novel Rope's End. But none
of this can help a weak plot line which is stretched mighty thin to last for nine reels. It is arranged
for Don Alonzo de Castro to marry Julietta (Helen D'Algy), who comes from a noble Spanish family.
Castro's jealous ex-girlfriend, Carlotta (Nita Naldi), schemes with bandit El Tigre (George
Siegmann) to destroy their happiness. On the couple's wedding night, El Tigre stages a raid and
kidnaps Julietta. Carlos goes after him, but is enraged when he sees a woman with a bridal veil
embracing the bandit. He believes it is Julietta, when it's actually Carlotta. Castro plans revenge on
El Tigre. Meanwhile, Julietta escapes to a nunnery with the help of Carmelita, a dancing girl (Louise
Lagrange). Although Carmelita loves Castro herself, she eventually reveals Julietta's hiding place
and the couple are reunited.
