Following a series of conferences between Mary Pickford, Norma Talmadge, Charles Chaplin, Douglas Fairbanks and others it was announced through the offices of the United Artists Corporation that Rudolph Valentino had signed a long-term contract with United Artists for release of his future productions. Hence, Mr. Valentino is now connected with what was originally known as the “Big Four”. In the telegram from Hollywood to United Artists Offices at 729 Seventh Ave, it was also set forth that the new star would make three productions this year, the first to be released by United Artists “The Hooded Falcon” a Moorish drama. Mr Valentino appeared in “Cobra”, which was finished a few weeks ago. It was produced by J.D. Williams. At the offices of United Artists it was not known who would be the actual producer of Mr. Valentino’s forthcoming productions. His last three productions will be distributed by Famous Players. United Artists soon will be releasing pictures made by Charlie Chaplin, Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks and Norma Talmadge. D.W. Griffith is now making his last production for this concern, after which he becomes a director for Famous Players-Lasky Corporation.
