11 Apr 1923 – Valentino Doesn’t Understand Women Tells Small Akron Audience

Mr & Mrs. Valentino appeared at the armory Sunday afternoon and evening with their own band. It was a most disappointing exhibition, and audiences of both performance fell way below expectations. Mr and Mrs. Valentino danced exactly 40 minutes. He then spoke briefly on his picture work. The afternoon audience waited patiently for almost two hours because the train carrying the Valentinos was hours late. “If I ever make another Sheik picture, it will be an honest-to-God last one. “Why, I didn’t even look like a Sheik in the other one. I was a drawing room hero. “Don’t you like flappers?” someone asked. “That’s a subject I never discuss. I am not qualified as a judge of women. Any man who says he understands women is either a fool or a liar”.
