This is Rudolph Valentino in, I believe, his 1923 Voisin. Which is now at The Nethercutt Museum in Sylmar, California:

although he owned many, including a Isotta Fraschini.

Mostly Italian cars of course.

That FIAT looks interesting - apart from the drum headlights it looks much earlier than 1924 - more like 1914. It is probably one of the big Poughkeepsie-built models rebuilt.

The only source for that was http://www.imdb.com/media/rm2156238848/nm0884388

I found another reference to "Valentino's white Fiat" and this excerpt from Dark Lover: The Life and Death of Rudolph Valentino:

So he clearly loved Fiats.
