NEVER has Valentino been given such wonderful opportunities as in this picture. First as an American college hero, then as a jewelled prince of India, he offers his greatest performance to date. (Print Ad- Syracuse Journal, ((Syracuse NY)) 11 November 1922) See more »
Before the release of this film Rudolph Valentino would marry Natacha Rambova, its costume designer. Unfortunately, the divorce from his first wife was not yet finalized, so he was arrested on a charge of bigamy and thrown in jail. The studio refused to post his bail. Instead, he had to rely on a group of friends to bail him out. See more »

In 2006, Flicker Valley copyrighted a 54-minute version with a piano score by Jon Mirsalis. This was a compilation of existing incomplete footage, trailers, production stills and new inserts. New explanatory titles are based on Paramount's editing continuity; foreign intertitles were replaced by the original English text. See more »
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.
