Kinomania: silent film bits from Poland

Here are a few things I found while looking around in the online Polish archives. The first is the front page of Kurjier Warsawski, featuring Rudolph Valentino. Valentino died on August 23, 1926 and this page dates from September 16, 1926.

The second item below is a poem or song lyrics called "Kinomania", as printed in Trubadur Warszawy, also in 1926. They mention Valentino, as well as other stars of the time like Lillian Gish, Emil Jannings, Conrad Veidt and Lya de Putti
