Actor Mike Farrell narrates this tale of comedy, terror, media and ‘the Arab.’ Valentino’s Ghost takes viewers on a journey through images of Muslims and Arabs in American popular culture. Where do the images come from? How do they relate to U.S. foreign policy? The image shifted from the beautiful Arab of Valentino’s ‘The Sheik,’ to the embodiement of Evil today. What happened? What national and religious mythologies about The Second Coming, Israel, and Islam, influence the way we see — and portray — Arabs and Muslims today? From 9/11 to Abu Ghraib, newspapers to animated films, and from Abu Ghraib to ‘Three Kings,’ Valentino’s Ghost connects the dots and raises the challenging questions.
