10 Sep 1930 – Rudolph Valentino Converting films into talkies

Rudolph Valentino fans are up in arms at the proposal to convert his films into talkies. The proposal was made by M. Paul Roger a Paris acoustic expert, who plans to take “Blood and Sand” and fit the living voice to the lip movements of the dead star. He says this would create the illusion that Valentino was speaking. Admirers, however, who still number millions are determined to prevent what they describe as sacrilege and an insult to his memory. They could not endure al alien voice masquerading as part of his magnetic personality.
