Rudolph Valentino: The Ultimate Latin Lover

Rudolph Valentino: The Ultimate Latin

David Bret's first biography of Rudolph Valentino was published in 1998 and became a worldwide success. In this much-extended edition of "Dream of Desire" which also includes Bret's stage play based on his book, the author tells of the real Valentino, a man sexually attracted only towards other men, and whose relationships with women-particularly his two lesbian wives-brought him only heartache and despair. Moralists attacked him, the studio chiefs treated him like dirt. His manager was interested only in gaining control of his estate. When he lay dying in hospital, these people deliberated between saving him and letting him die while working out which was the most financially viable-Valentino alive, or dead, and what would happen if the truth emerged about his private life. Valentino was less ashamed of his sexuality than he was of being trapped within the image of his public persona as "The World's Greatest Lover". In 1920s Hollywood, gay men were all too often stereotyped as feeble degenerates. Not so Valentino, a powerfully-built man who excelled at most sports, and at boxing in particular. It was his persistent, totally unnecessary need to "prove" his manhood which ultimately contributed towards his untimely death.

Dark Lover : The Life and Death of Rudolph Valentino

Dark Lover : The Life and Death of

Emily Leider traces the extraordinary journey by which Rodolfo Guglielmi became Rudolph Valentino - a silver screen legend who forever changed America's idea of 'the leading man'. Valentino wasn't just a star, he was a phenomenon - adored by women, despised by men. On-screen, he offered American women a dangerous sexuality unlike anything on offer from their husbands or lovers; in private, his first wife - a lesbian - refused to consummate their marriage. Gossip and rumour about his early life as a taxi-dancer haunted him, until his untimely death cut short a career that lasted only five years. This book now rehabilitates Valentino's reputation, both as a man and as an actor.

Rudolph Valentino's Men: An Intimate Portrait of the Screen God's Lovers

Rudolph Valentino's Men: An Intimate Portrait of the

Rudolph Valentino was less ashamed of his sexuality than he was afraid of being trapped by the image of his public persona. In 1920s America, gay and bisexual men were stereotyped as feeble, effeminate degenerates. None of these terms applied to Valentino—a powerfully-built man who excelled at most sports, and boxing in particular. Yet it was his persistent and unnecessary need to prove his “manhood” which may have contributed to his early death. So, who were these men? Claude Rambeau was the chansonnier he met during his first visit to Paris, aged 18. Count Alexander Salm was an Austrian tennis ace, an exponent of the Argentine tango and a hero of World War One. Jules Raucourt was a Belgian stage -actor. Norman Kerry was the matinee idol who appeared in such silent classics as The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Emmett J Flynn was the director who, though thrice-married, had a penchant for sporting types and whose career was blighted by alcoholism brought about by trying to hide his sexuality. Dublin-born Douglas Gerrard was a big name in Hollywood when he took Valentino under his wing, but is sadly forgotten today. Paul Ivano was a 19-year-old French cameraman, sent to America by his family to recuperate after being gassed while fighting at the Front, and who went on t...

Valentino As I Knew Him

Valentino As I Knew

Rudolph Valentino (1895-1926) was an early pop icon and a sex symbol of the 1920s, having starred in several well-known silent films including The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, The Sheik, Blood and Sand, The Eagle, and The Son of the Sheik, and he became known as the “Latin lover” or simply “Valentino.” His sudden death at just 31 years of age unleashed mass hysteria among his female fans and further propelled him into iconic status.This biography of the famous Italian actor, which was originally published in 1926, not long after his untimely death, was written by his business manager and closest friend, George Ullman, providing with the reader with a unique insight into the icon’s life.

Legends of Hollywood: The Life of Rudolph Valentino

Legends of Hollywood: The Life of Rudolph

*Includes pictures*Includes a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contents“A man should control his life. Mine is controlling me.” – Rudolph ValentinoEverything about Rudolph Valentino, from his body to the characters he played, was exotic. His career may have been abbreviated by his premature death at the age of 31, but Valentino popularized the (somewhat racist) stereotype of the “Latin lover” in Hollywood, and even his name was markedly more out of the ordinary than those of other actors. In an era dominated by hyper-masculine actors like Douglas Fairbanks, or comedians such as Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, Valentino had a more ethnic and mysterious appeal, and he was lusted after by women to a degree that remains unsurpassed in the industry. The extent to which he captivated America can be seen in the response to his death; after passing away from a perforated ulcer in 1926, Ashton Trice and Samuel Holland note that his funeral “was one of the pop culture events of the century,” and devastated women are alleged to have committed suicide out of heartbreak. If Valentino’s public persona was exotic, his personal life and background were no less fantastic, to the extent that it rivaled the improbable narratives of his movies. While he was ide...

Rudolph Valentino: A Wife's Memories of an Icon

Rudolph Valentino: A Wife's Memories of an

In 1926 silent film icon, Rudolph Valentino, died unexpectedly at the age of 31. That same year, he had finalized a bitter divorce from his wife of four years, Natacha Rambova. Valentino had been madly in love with the gorgeous and very talented designer, yet they had been unable to make their marriage work. Since their first marriage in 1922, the public had been critical of Rambova, blaming her for any mistakes in Valentino's career or life, never knowing these choices had very little to do with her. As Valentino lay on his deathbed in New York, Rambova was in Paris. The two exchanged telegrams to the very end, with both sides believing they would soon reunite and a reconciliation had taken place. Upon hearing the news of his death, Rambova was so distraught she locked herself in her room for three days. Rambova struggled with how to memorialize her ex-husband. She strongly felt Hollywood was to blame and wrote a play "All That Glitters" to express those feelings (it was unpublished until 2012.) This memoir is a mix of her memories, hatred of Hollywood, love of her husband and deep belief in Spiritualism. First published in the UK in 1927, "Rudy: An Intimate Portrait by His Wife", is now presented as "Rudolph Valentino: A Wife's Memories of an Icon". First republished in 2009, t...
