The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse is a 1921 American silent movie set during World War I. Its story was written in a book by Vicente Blasco Ibáñez, and it was made into the movie by June Mathis.

When the film was released in 1921, it became very popular. People bought "gaucho pants" to dress like the movie's main character, Julio Desnoyers.[1] Julio Desnoyers was played by Rudolph Valentino. After starring in this film, he became famous. June Mathis became one of the most successful women in Hollywood.[2][3]

The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse is considered an important film. Because of this, the Library of Congress's National Film Registry is preserving it and making sure it doesn't get damaged. The film is also in the public domain because it is so old. (It was released 94 years ago.) The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse can be downloaded for free on the Internet Archive.[4]
