    The sling and apparent bandage on his hand are not in the version of the film linked from the Wikipedia page. I'm thinking there might be a story behind the picture. Valentino apparently took some lessons from Jack Dempsey, e.g.,in Beverly Banner. May 08, 1925, PICTORIAL SECTION, page 10, photo at top left But that should not have resulted in an actual injury. Maybe he was injured on the set in some other way .

    [], I don't know what the story might be, but a copy of it is on IMDB with other promo photos from the movie, I'm not sure what the turnaround time for movies in the 1920's was but this movie came out in November of 1925, and I found a very short article in The Billboard from September 19, 1925 which said: "Los Angeles, Sept. 12-Rudolph Valentino was scratched and bruised while on location at Lankershim, near here Wednesday, when he was dragged by a galloping horse while making a scene in which he was to have stopped a runaway."
