| Astonishing imagery
The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse is an astonishing and spectacular film. I agree with most of the other comments, that this film is definitely a must-see, though I have reservations about some unevenness in the plotting. But the spectacle, the fire-and-brimstone imagery, and the excellent star-making performance by Valentino more than compensate. In many ways, it DOES tower above 99 percent of what Hollywood throws up today.

Trivia

In his book 'John Wayne: The Life and Legend', Scott Eyman recalls how Wayne saw this title "twice a day for the entire week it played in Glendale." His favourite actor was Douglas Fairbanks, and Wayne "admired his dueling, his stunts, his fearlessness in the face of danger, and his impish grin when he was about to kiss his lady-love."

Alternate Versions

In 1993 Turner Entertainment in association with Britain's Channel Four distributed a full restoration by Kevin Brownlow and David Gill's Photoplay Productions. The restoration includes many scenes that had been deleted or thought missing since the film's premiere, including original tinting and a single shot of a brief Prizma Color sequence that had been in the original release.
