1920's Hollywood ~ The legendary Rudolph Valentino
Alla Nazimova & Rudolph Valentino in "Camille" (1921, dir. Ray Smallwood)
Rudolph Valentino and Vilma Banky "The Son of the Sheik"
Rudolph Valentino...my mother told me when I was a child, that when Rudolph Valentino died, women were so enamored of him that they commited suicide by jumping out of windows when his casket was drawn down the street in his funeral procession. She also said that on the anniversary of his death a woman is seen putting a single read rose on his grave, she is heavily veiled in black.
