Rudolph Valentino was 27 years old when this film was released in 1922. In the film, Valentino's character, Amos Judd, has the "gift of prophecy" and premonitions of future events. At one point in the film he asks his fiancée, Molly, to "set the date for our wedding--but make it soon or--I'll die of heart failure." Molly leans down to pick up a calendar that is open on the month of August. In real life Valentino died, just four years later, ironically in August, but not of heart failure; he died of inflammation of his left lung. See more »
You will be in the front of the Unitarian church and you will bump into a small boy with a kite. Then the minister will come out and shake hands with you.
Young man, you have read my mind! I did intend calling on the minister tomorrow - now I shall take good care not to!
I've tried to do that, but, something has always forced me to fulfill my prophesies.

Rudolph Valantino drama, which was considered lost for many decades. When a print finally showed it in was in very bad shape with nearly 2/3rds of the film too bad to show so they took the decent footage and added photos to it to try and get back as much as they could. The film tells the story of a young man (Valantino) who was brought over from India as a small child who, when learning his background, goes back to India to fight for his crown. The film doesn't make too much since due to all the footage being missing but apparently this film wasn't that good in its complete form so I'm not sure how much better it would have been complete. Valantino actually does a good job in the few remaining footage of film and the costume design and sets are appear to be top-notch as well. Charles Ogle, the man who played the monster in Edison's 1910 version of Frankenstein, has a role here as well.
