Valentino and the radio

This is the key image for the off-site exhibition Orquesta en Su Casa.  Rudolf Valentino popularized the Tango by including this scene in the epic film, Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.  He and Alice Terry (seen watching him dance) were the love interests of the film and were featured in many lobby cards.
