02 Aug 1925 – Only in NY Darlings

At the Biltmore Hotel, Mr. & Mrs. Rudolph Valentino entertained a table of guests in honor of the Spanish painter Federico Beltran-Masses. The table guests included Mr. & Mrs. Charles Chaplain, Marion Davies, Elinor Glyn and others.  Charlie Chaplain seemed to do a great deal of dancing and seemed to favor Marion Davies as a partner versus his wife Lita Grey.  Mrs. Valentino wore the ever present turban which has given rise to speculation amongst the Hollywood wags as to whether she sleeps in one.  This time it was of white satin. A peach satin gown with straps covered in pearls girdled at the hips with large pearl hearts, below which the skirt flared to a wide pearl encircled hem. Her heavy long brown hair was word in braided bosses over her ears. Ah only in NYC Darlings.

Jul 1922 – A Hardy Soul Mate

Rudolph Valentino recently told a reporter that he wanted a soul mate. His former wife Jean Acker, suing for separation and claiming that Rudy knocked her down, used her perfume and performed other acts of violence, came forth with the declaration that she was his soul mate only he didn’t realize it.  After embarassing himself with all sorts of allegations in the court-room, she declared she adored him! Just a woman’s sweet way, I suppose. Well by the time the judge has granted a separation of divorce or other nominal severance, but take from Jean their souls go marching on.
