Full movie description "The Son of the Sheik":Men and women, fathers and children. Ahmed, son of Diana and Sheik Ahmed Ben Hassan, falls in love with Yasmin, a dancing girl who fronts her father's gang of mountebanks. Among the cutthroats is Ghobah, a villainous Moor to whom Yasmin is promised. In ruins near Touggourt, the city where Yasmin dances, she and Ahmed meet secretly until one night when her father and the gang capture the son of the sheik, torture him, and hold him for ransom. Will Ahmed believe that Yasmin set him up for capture? Even if true love finds a way through webs of deceit, what will the vigorous and imposing sheik say about his son consorting with a dancing girl?
Reviews of the The Son of the SheikValentino with tongue in cheek offers this sequel to his famous THE SHEIK. He appears here in a dual role - as a repeat of his earlier role as a tempestuous young Englishman/Desert Prince and his father, the aged version of his earlier character. Here he shows a true acting gift, ably impersonating a man in his fifties or sixties, as well as doing his usual best in the romantic leading man mode. He looks for all the world like John Barrymore with his greying beard and make-up. There are some fine split screen special effects for the two characters to be on the screen at the same time, including a marvelous moment when the older Sheik throws a piece of iron which falls at the younger man's feet, who then picks it up. There are many more close-ups in this film than in the original and film has obviously advanced as an atmospheric art in the five years between the two. The orchestral score (Tchaikovsky, Grieg) and sound effects are added as this print I viewed is the re-issue version (alas minus the rape scene). It is a hoot to see the exteriors of the Sheik's desert tent and the vast interiors - they don't match in the least, the latter about three times the size of the former. A fun adventure film - the simple plot involves the daughter of the bad guys falling for the Sheik, with his alienation based on his belief that she betrayed him into a kidnaping, when she was an innocent dupe. Agnes Ayres revives her original role as the old Sheik's love and Vilma Banky does well as the dancing girl. A fun film - and sadly, Valentino's last.
