    Interesting material you have presented here on Natacha Rambova and I enjoy reading your blog.

      I loved that photo you had of her on a dig. That looks like an early expedition, possibly in the 1930s? Also, where did you get that lovely quote from her about her dream of having a library dedicated to religious symbolism? You are right, there are many things yet to be discovered about that fabulous lady and your attention to her was well crafted. I am soon to come out with another book, a compendium of Rambova material that I was not able to publish in my biography of her back in 1991.
      All best wishes,
      Michael Morris

    The vintage newspaper articles show different angles on Rudys life I never knew before.Informative I truly enjoy when new articles are posted. Keep up the good work…

  5. My mother and father knew George B. Wehner well. In fact, they met at a seance at Wehner’s house in February 1941. My father was living in Wehner’s house at the time, employed as the orchestrator of his upcoming Piano concerto, which was premiered in August of the same year. I found your summary of his life very helpful.

    LOVE reading all of the interesting articles and pictures you post here on Rudolph Valentino. There are very few sites out there for a fan to go. I am so glad this blog is here!

  7. Thank you for your dedication and consistent posting to this blog. I just discovered Valentino as part of the family history project where I am learning what it meant to be an Italian immigrant and an Italian-American during the early 20th century. Rudy’s experiences were very typical of the fear and misunderstanding caused by the great wave of immigrants from Southern Italy beginning in the late 19th century. Thanks to the large collection of news articles you have curated, I now can see that even at the higher levels of society some of his peers and the press were just as prejudiced. You have created a valuable resource and I encourage you to continue your work.

    Thank you for this blog! This past July (2020), out of the blue I suddenly felt a strong connection to Rudolph Valentino. Since then I have immersed myself in his story, the turn of the century, and the immigration experience. I have seen the patterns in his life that correspond to my own family’s history. I an beginning to write about this connection. As a researcher myself who find discrepancies in stories about his life in so many places, I appreciate the work you have compiled!
