11 May 1922 – Special Studio Announcement

The movie studios decided the fans should be told that Rudolph Valentino was soon to marry Natacha Rambova.  To the public at large Miss Rambova was revealed as Winifred Hudnut stepdaughter of Richard Hudnut millionaire cosmetics manufacturer.  The dashing Valentino and the beautiful aloof and suddenly rich Rambova seemed like a prince and princess in a fairy story.  Every effort was made to sharpen this impression.  Valentino was suddenly endowed with a degree, Doctor of Agriculture. His deceased father was even elevated from village veterinary to head of an excellent old Italian family.  Reporters flocked to Paramount Studios and the mystery of Natacha Rambova had always intrigued them and the revelations that she was the authentic and beloved stepdaughter of a multimillionaire was real news. Not even Valentino had known who she really was; he had first learned of Natacha exalted background from the newspapers. Nevertheless, he was overjoyed and believed himself the most blessed of men. He was going to marry a beautiful and brilliant woman whom he admired and adored and since he was now earning more that $50,000 a year, he didn’t need her money.  However, it should be noted that Valentino should be careful on his spending habits since it’s a well-known fact he wants a family.

30 Apr 1926 – Storm Destroys Valentino Camp in Sandhills

Cloudburst and tornado struck the Valentino desert movie camp about eight o’clock Wednesday and completely wrecked it. James Townsend, production manager, was struck on the head by a flying timber and believed to be seriously injuried. He was brought to Yuma late last night, as were 25 workers who were breaking camp following the departure of Rudolph Valentino, Bull Montana, and 125 others for Los Angeles on Tuesday. A big water tank was blown a mile down the valley by the and 20-foot lengths of iron pipe were blown about like straws. Every tent and building was razed except the big dining tent, and the workers lost all personal efexcept what they had on their ‘ ick. From six inches to a foot of •toater ran where water is seldom seen, and the strength of a dozen men was required to keep from blowing away a large automobile with all brakes set. The storm was described by oldtimers as something unequalled within the memory of man in that district. The roads between Yuma and the dunes were flooded for the third time this soring and made well-nigh impassable.

Befitting a desert habitation of a real ‘Son of a Sheik’ is the tent house built for Rudolph Valentino, First National star, who has arrived on location, to take the desert scenes for his latest picture.
