Mar 1923 – What do you think?

Oh, how you girls love Rudolph! Out of the hundred odd eulogies crowding on my desk, this is a representative specimen, “I believe I have founded where Rudolph Valentino’s fascination rests ‘tis his adorable smile.’  With one or two exceptions, all film actor’s molar displays are so obviously just that minute made to order grin and remind one of a death’s head contained with Uriah Heep. Rudy on the other hand, makes his spontaneous really, he might have been one of Murillo’s models, its so half-lazy, sleepy pathetic, humorous, tolerant, varmint street araby, with just a suspicion of spiciness. In truth, it’s a human smile. I’m not given to hero worship mind you, but I do think Rudolph has supplied a long felt want how, I don’t quite know.

4 Feb 1923 – What do you think?

Why aren’t fans more enthusiastic about Rudolph Valentino? One only needs to see his movie “The Four Horsemen” to establish him as America’s first favourite.  The women adore him, and men want to emulate and learn about love from him.  In “The Four Horsemen” he stood out a rare magnetic personality.  I am no silly flapper, but I consider him a very sincere, intelligent young actor. He is ‘different’ has subtlety and appeals to the imagination.  We’re tired of everlasting sons of the soil registering nobility in every close-up.  Rudolph is the personification of a romance longed for and thought dead.  It is that delicious bit of devilry that is one of his biggest charms.
