    Rudolph Valentino, Alice Lake, Uncharted Seas 49 Rare Double-Weight Stills from 1921's "Uncharted Seas," with Valentino. This silent saga of the frozen North, directed by Wesley Ruggles, featured Rudolph Valentino on the brink of superstardom. The star was Alice Lake, who played the wife of hard-drinking womanizing lout (Carl Gerard), and who is truly in love with Valentino. Lake and Valentino end up together in the fadeout (after the two have restrained their yearnings for months while caught in an ice-trapped ship!). Forty-nine rare double-weight stills, posed and candid, mostly favoring Ms. Lake, although Valentino appears in several (including a great candid in which a man lights his cigarette as Valentino lies snow-covered on a sled). Also a nice shot of director Wesley Ruggles smoking a cigar as he stands by the camera. Although provenance has not been fully determined, it appears that this lot, might at one time have belonged to Alice Lake. In Excellent condition.
