19 Jul 1923 – Ritz-Carlton Pictures Dinner

In his speech the other night at the dinner given by the Ritz-Carlton Pictures, Inc Rudolph Valentino said that he objected to a particular clause in his contract which set forth that if “his manner or bearing’ was not in accord with the desires of the Famous Players Laskey Corp he could be laid off for 6 months. He declared that it was apparently for the producing concern to determine at any time whether his “manner of bearing” was not according to the clause in the contract. He also said that he had refused to work for the concern even after an offer of $750,000. Although J. D. Williams is optimistic regarding Valentino’s contract with Famous Players the latter firm, from hints dropped by some of the officials, is not disposed to release the actor from his contract, unless he is successful in court.
