Notable Historic November 6th’s

1921 – “The Sheik” opens, launching the cult of Rudolph Valentino.  The silent film

 “The Sheik” opened this day to negative reviews. Despite this, the movie and its

exotic star caught the attention of women across the country, who were soon literally

swooning in the aisles at Valentino movies.

1861 – Jefferson Davis is elected president of the Confederate States of America. He

ran without opposition, and his election simply confirmed a decision made by the

Confederate Congress earlier in the year.
