Silent Movie Postcards

The postcard reads: Rudolph Valentino

The postcard reads: Come to see Rudolph Valentino in “Cobra Woman” – A Paramount movie in seven reels – Nita Naldi, the main actress [In Thai, the title is “Cobra Woman,” but Imdb says it’s just “Cobra” in English.]
It’s a love story of a charming, handsome Italian man who is attractive to many women. Later he meets an important woman, “the cobra woman,” and has an amazing affair with her. It’s a love story that will break women’s hearts.
It will be shown at Pattanakorn Theatre from Saturday the 5th until Monday the 8th, May 1928. [Not 100% sure on the year. The numbers are so small.]

    It is indeed 1928 (BE 2471)

    Pattanakorn Theatre => That’s refer to Pattanakorn Cinema – the best cinema in Siam before Chaloem Krung Cinema.
    which has eventually become Sirirama Cinema. now it is defunct …

    Whne Douglas Fairbank Sr. had been to Siam to make a movie “80 Minutes around the world”, he has mocked Pattanakorn Cinema as “more like a go down warehouse”. That eventually an incentive for King Prajadhipok to come up with Chaloem Krung Cinema (Now, Chaloemkrung Royal Theater) – the very first air-conditioned Cinema in Siam or even at the Asian level opened on 2 July 1933.
