17 Sep 1923 – Oh Horrors Girls Rodolfo is Baldo

Rodolfo Valentino, the Shiek of Shieks, arrived in Paris last week accompanied by his red-lipped wife Winifred Hudnut. He had a rousing reception from a large crowd and posed for almost an hour for photographs for French newspapers and photograph service, but one thing the Parisians found out that Americans have failed to notice. Rodolfo is bald. According to a dispatch carried in the Los Angeles Times there is no doubt about it. He is bald. Between the shining and lacquered flairs over his Apollo-like head gleams the unmistakable whiteness of Valentino’s skull. Three years hence those black hairs will not even l)e able to conceal the gaping spaces, so girls resign yourselves to the truth. Both the Valentinos unanimously and voiciferously declared to reporters that they are going to have their own company when they get back to America. Rodolfo will act and Winifred intends to design his costumes. His contract with Lasky is up in January, and by that time he will have his own company duly organized and under way. Rodolfo made quite a hit on the boulevards. He kissed the hands of all the European ladies present, and Winifred, smiling with her startling red lips from her dead white face, allowed her hands to be kissed in faultless Parisian manner. They made deep impressions on crowds of Parisian celebretieh, who considered them .sharply different from the previous visitors from Hollywood who did not know how to eat, or talk, or bow or smile. Rudy and his wife have the grand manner, as if they were brought up in the world of cosmopolitan society.

25 Aug 1926 – The Late Rudolph Valentino’s Host Quits Hospital Secretly

At 1735 yesterday, a tall slim stooping figure in a turned down college boy hat slipped out of the rear door of the Harbor Sanitarium, 667 Madison Ave.  The figure held an animated conversation in the alley with a person who later turned out to be his valet.  Then the figure darted nervously into a 15 and 5 taxicab and was whisked away.  Thus, Barclay Warburton Jr, host to Rudolph Valentino at that mysterious party, leave the sanitarium where he underwent an operation only a few days after that of his famous guest. Everyone at the Harbor from the superintendent to the doorman tried to keep Warburton’s departure a secret. The young society man plainly looked ill as he left.  Meanwhile Broadway, astir with reports about Rudy’s illness was still wondering about the speedy retirement of his host.  After giving out a statement that there was no party at his apartment 925 Park Ave a story contradicted by at least one guest apartment owner Warburton has frantically dodged questioners.  Warburton’s story told immediately after Valentino was taken to the hospital, was that Rudy was taken ill at the Ambassador Hotel and not after the party at Warburton’s.  Harry Richman of the cast of George White’s scandals, said Rudy, Warburton, and himself, accompanied by three women, went to Warburton’s apartment. “We had some drinks, music and dancing” Richman said, until about 1:30, when Rudy was taken violently ill and was rushed to his apartment at the Ambassador. While his death mystery deepens Rudy lay in peace yesterday in the gorgeous gold room at Campbell Funeral Home.
