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.
Rudolph Valentino was Hollywood's first male sex symbol. He had what is called flesh appeal which meant that he jumped out at you from the silver screen. Women enjoyed watching his films and imagining that they were in the place of the actress onscreen that he was making love to. They could dream that those sensuous sensitive poetic hands were caressing their bodies inflaming them with unspoken desires. The fact that Rudy was a foreigner provided the added titillation of forbidden fruit
